Hi,

I want to be able to embed my models [both an image of, and a buy now button] on my external site.

So I search for shapeways embed shop and find the Shapeways Lab:

http://www.shapeways.com/labs // on this page at the top there is a 'Shop Embed' link along with other widgets resident on that page. The problem is
Shop Embed is not there!

Ok, I say... lets try another route and another google search to get some means of embedding buyable models from shapeways. Next I get this page:

http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/shoppingcart/index.html // here at the bottom it promises "Shapeways_example_shop.zip" which can be downloaded
and tweaked to suit. Only, the URL of the zip text points back to the same page..

So, I let Shapeways know, and after some difficulty it is acknowledged that in fact the link does point back to its self and that in time [they cant say when] this will be fixed. How then can I get my products embedded and buyable from my site then I ask? Go to the dev site and use the API I am told.

So i go there, and look , but cant see anything that is obviously suited to achieving what I want to do, and neither is there seemingly any howto on shop embedding to external sites...!

Can anyone provide the missing example shop code [perhaps it was once there]. Believe me im no thicko when it comes to computing [I have a BSc in it, admittedly many moons ago] but it seems to be a bit of a dark art and similar to a search for a needle in a haystack to find A. code to embed buyable products and B. Well written documentation.

I know Shapeways must be extremely busy and have done a fantastic Job in creating such an environment, but it must be a basic ask to have shop owners the means to sell from their site and for the process to be well explained and relatively painless?

thanks
D

we have an easy way for you to use the Shapeways checkout system on your own site.


That would be awesome Surprised but currently we use the widget :

<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:10px solid #c0c0c0; height:200px; width:650px; "src="[url]http://www.shapeways.com/widget/include.php?[/url]shop=fabme&shopcat=printed@shapeways&style=light" > </iframe>


Just change fabme into your shop name and change printed@shapeways into your category !

It "works" HERE

Hi Wesley,

And thanks for your help.

Your site looks great with the widget, however since my post I have managed to hack at some existing code
I scavenged from another site and am using this on a product by product basis..


Thanks again

Best
Dan
