Hi, 1st post here Smile

I've been working on this little bird to test out the full color printing, and it's finished now:

I have a question though, shouldn't the 3d preview thumbnail show the model with the texture map applied?

Yes, the preview should show your model with texture.
Make sure you've got uv coordinates and a single material with 1 texture in your model file.

Hi Kaetemi,

I uploaded an x3d file with a .jpg in a zip file, and the model also has uv's.
--------------
Exported an x3d from blender and it works now, thanks!

The 2d preview is working proprerly from what I can see. If you click on "View in 3D" to get the 3D animation, it won't have a texture: it is the normal current behaviour.

[EDIT] I really like your design, by the way. Smile

So many things to design, so little time...

Hi Ana, thank you for the welcome! Smile

I'm printing in sandstone, but if you have a suggestion for any other materials I would definitely appreciate it.

Jettuh, i'm glad you like my bird, thanks!

Also wondering if the current print size is too big or too small, and if the price is ok?

-Kevin

@Jettuh, totally agreed it would be a shame not to print in color. Sandstone was my guess, but I didn't assume. Razz

That is fantastic! I really like that model.

How large is the model? You can measure it using Netfabb Basic (http://www.netfabb.com/basic.php), using the measurement tool (it looks like a ruler). I'd check the thickness of those feathers down the back and the tail feathers to make sure they are at least the minimum thickness for sandstone.

Thanks TurtlesareCool,

I made sure the parts were thick enough for sandstone using the measuring tools in Silo 2.2.

I also made a smaller version here:
