Hey, I was working on a model that would be too large to print in a single step. Now, that's fine for me, as I can upload each part separately and print as needed. However, if I were to upload this to my store page, how would someone order all the correct parts?

It would be nice to have an option to make something a "multi-part model" and then associate other uploads with it. So if it's an airplane with a nose, wings, fuselage, tail and engines (example) I could upload a picture of the finished model and upload each part, identifying it to the main store page.

When a potential customer looks at it, they will see that it is a multi-part model, each piece that is printed for it, and be able to buy the entire thing in one click.

Just a suggestion Smile
