Hi, I developed an iOS app for modeling and printing objects. Right now it uploads OBJ files ( to another company), with the colors defined by MTL files. Can you not do this with Shapeways?

It seems like it would be a natural format to support, as it's widely used and simple.

Thanks
Bob

Is the MTL color file supported, or can you only do single-color OBJ? I know earlier this year it was not possible to upload OBJ with MTL to specify the colors of the polygon faces. But maybe things have changed. Do you know?
Thanks

The MTL addition to OBJ is indeed not supported. Please use x3d or wrl for color files instead.

How about supporting MTL? It is the easiest file format out there.

If not, can anyone point me to a clear definition of those other formats that are supported?

Thanks
Bob
