I've noticed that in the sales report Excel file, model names get truncated. For example: "Xiamen Container Ship 1:6000 x4" is reported as "Xiamen Container Ship 1:6". Having the full name would make it much easier for me to write scripts to parse and understand which models are selling.

This is also something of a problem when the model is listed in the store itself, but I'll live with that.

Actually, It happens that I change the name of a model. So in my case, having the model number (the one that is in the URL) would be even more useful.
Would that number solve also your issue?

Example, for this model:
http://www.shapeways.com/model/314844/xiamen_container_ship_ 1_6000_x4.html
that can be accessed also through this URL (that does not change if you rename your model)
http://www.shapeways.com/model/314844/
the model number would be 314844.


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

The full model name would be very useful, even just a model name on sold model email notifications would be cool. A model reference number would make life not so easy unless the notification included a link to the model.

Honestly, I'm fine with anything uniquely identifiable. Names would be nice, since they are a bit more human-readable.

Why not include both (full names and model ID)? Bits are cheap...

For me: names change, number don't Wink

So +1 for the model numbers!

And +1 for the longer model name cause that was afrodri his request Wink
