Hi guys:
How to show Full Color Sandstone in my models as a UV texture map, my ZIP upload done,the texture is a JPG file and that it has the same name as the .wrl file, but show a blue box,not my texture map.

How to confirm my model is correct upload?

In my experience, if it is displays wrong in the Shapeways viewer, it will print wrong in full Color Sandstone.
Open the vrlm file with a text editor and check the texture name (search for jpg for instance): the name must be the same than the jpg file in your zip file and without any folder name.
You can also try to open the wrml file with a wrml viewer (Cortona 3D for instance) even if the fact that you can view it proprerly with the viewer is not a guarantee: if if the viewer fails, then there is a trouble for sure...

BTW, those spheres seem to be attached to the whole structure by a very thin part: make sure you comply with the FCS rules.

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