Hi all,

As I mentionned during the latest podcast, I would like to see some new features for the co-creator templates.

First, I would like to be able to upload several models in one product page (say the different kinds of numbering of a same die) and when the customer choose one of it through a radio button or a drop-down menu, the appropriate model is ordered without me having to upload again this model (currently, I have nothing to design, since all the numbering are already done, I just have to upload the correct file). See this example. Could be useful also for ring sizes for instance.

And, something new, a slighly different request for Color Sandstone: if a co-creator only requires to upload an image, then appropriate zip file could be automatically generated by packing the VRML of the designer with the image from the customers (with a standard name like "image.jpg" for instance). See this example. 95% of Color Sandstone co-creator templates could work with this (if the customer is careful, obviously).

The goal of these two requests is to have some co-creators that work without any intervention from the designer (so no additional working day, and potentially a smaller markup since there is no additional time spent).

Is it something other designers would like to see? Is it doable?

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

Hey Magic,

I remember that request. I'm presenting poring over the suggestions that came in with Ben (aka horst) to figure out which suggestions might be implemented in a month's time as a high reward quick fix. Not yet sure if this falls into that category, but this does seems like a valuable bunch of features -- good for shoppers, good for designers.

Let me talk to some people and get back to you. Wink

May I ask if there are some update on this?

I understood that Baroba would be also interested, and I am sure other shop owners will find these two features useful.
