I had this problem about a week ago, where someone had ordered a model in stainless that was too thin for stainless. In the model restrictions area, if you want all but stainless to be acceptable you have to keep clicking add until all that is left is stainless. What about a remove material button? That way I can go on the list and just say no to stainless? What about instead of the way it is now, have check boxes with a check/uncheck all button? Then you could simply uncheck stainless for none stainless models, and for stainless only click check/uncheck all and then click stainless.

An annoying addition to this. I used to be able to click restrict material until I saw stainless... BSF is listed under stainless. So now I either have to restrict till I see stainless then select BSF or restrict to all the remove stainless.

A different method on adding materials is something we'll need to look into, but having the order of the materials in the restriction dropdown to resemble the dropdown for material is something we can change quicker.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Kind regards, Arno

Thank you Sir, It was inconvenient but still some what easy before with stainless on the bottom. Perhaps on a big update have an "all .7mm materials", "all 1mm materials", and "2mm materials" (or what ever kind of restriction you want on stainless, I know it depends on overall size of the model). Kind of goes along with my Thickness of shell for sell suggestion.

To my opinion the minimal wall size should be stored with the model and so preselect the material restrictions for the model.
So no failure can be done by the designer and it would prevent a lot of troubles on all sides.

Another suggestion.

Why isn't it possible to restric to "Strong and Flexible" or to "Detail" without specifying the color?
Generally we do not care in which color a customer buy an object. We just need to be sure that if the design need to be flexible, only flexible materials are used, or if details are important, only detail meterials are used.

I guess it will be the same thing if one day we will be able to choose between Stainless Steel and Bronze Stainless Steel.

Currently, for the models I restricted to White Strong and Flexible (when only this color was available), it is not possible to order them in Black or any other dyed Strong and Flexible, if I do not add those materials by myself.

Black is also dyed. It would be better if the selector used the same style, though, less confusion, all marked "Look" or better "Dyed".

The material restriction needs some additional attention since it's time consuming to handle. It's easier and faster to upload a model then to handle the material restrictions ...
