Appears to work normally for me, suspect it could be an intermittent routing or name resolution problem, not necessarily always on shapeways' side.

Hello,

After installing Chrome the SW website works fine.

So SW created a webshop that cannot handle Firefox and Safari?

That is very scary.

Using firefox here (though on Linux), so not sure if browser support plays a role here. Possibly it is something more subtle, like https certificate validation timeouts or one of the many external tracker thingies they use (google, mxpnl, doubleclick,quantserve,adroll, facebook, yahoo,...) not loading in time (unless you block all that hidden fluff already)

Sorry to dissappoint everyone here, but loosing your 'junior membership' is often a result of many frustrating events that happen here at Shapeways varying from rejections, inconsistent printing quality, complaints from customers, goofy website interface issues, or just a dead website.

I've had my share of problems with Shapeways but so far they have been dealt with directly with the Shapeways Team via email. I've been a "junior" member since 2011 but have noticed they are having some growing pains. So all I have to do is rant on this forum 30 times to be a grown up. Lets hope I stay a junior then 8-)

Dear all,

There is a mobile app called Leblox, where you create Pixel Art type 3d Avatars or objects.

I need to have my girlfriend's and my avatar (Pixel Art style) created either on that app, or in any 3d software that can be printed here on shapeways.com

Please check google images for Leblox and you will see what kind of modelling style I am referring to.

Please let me know with your portfolio links if you can do this.

Thank you

My story goes something like this.

I'm interested in indie film making. I have a small collection of gear such as camera+lenses (obviously), shotgun mic, lights, crane, etc. and the most important part: a fluid-head tripod. What makes it great is that it's oil filled and allows very slow movement with no judder. However, the handle connects to the head via a plastic part which is under pressure from a steel threaded nut. This pressure over time has caused the plastic part to split, leaving a handle that's loose and has no control over the camera. The tripod is discontinued and searching turned up no replacement parts. It was either try some other kind of fix, or spend $400 on a new tripod.

Turning to new methods for replacement (rather than superglue and ongoing part failure), I thought I'd try 3D printing for the first time. I'm a software programmer and CG generalist by trade, so creating a new part wasn't difficult. But knowing that 3D printing has fairly broad tolerances, I was interested in whether it could produce an accurate part to replace the old. After reading up the material data sheets, I got two parts printed: one plastic, one steel. The plastic one fit with a small amount of give and was a great replacement; although it appeared softer than the original plastic. But the steel part blew me away. It required the smallest amount of filling on the inside but afterwards it fit like a glove. And now the handle has all metal parts and is tight as a drum.

So this has been my experience; where I now have a replacement part that is better than the original. Is it wrong to say I can't wait for something else to break?

If - judging from your shop - your concern is just about selling a left and right earring together, the trivial solution is to put both parts in the same file.

Good idea, I didn't think of that. Are their any guidelines for how to orientate the two objects? Minimum space? Just side by side? Searching "multiple objects" and "multiple .stl" didn't come up with anything.

Thanks!

As far as I know relative placement does not matter, except perhaps for strong&flexible plastic where the "machine space" component of the price calculation was at some time shown to be influenced by packing.
BTW it might make sense to create a new thread for this and ask the moderators to move our discussion to it, so as not to distract from the original
topic...

The materials pages for each material indicate if there are any limits to how many unconnected objects you can put in a file. Some materials will have additional per part charges for additional objects. It all depends on the materials. The limits for many metals are 2 objects per file precisely because most people have only two ears. You could still offer individual earrings in separate files if it's the type of earring that is best worn singly, or for people having only one ear.

It doesn't really matter how far apart your objects are placed but don't place them so far apart that you exceed bounding box size limitations. Also if you do that the model renders will look goofy so just place them close enough so the renders look decent. You don't have any control over object orientations in the printers so it's all up to the Shapeways folks to decide how best to take your file with multiple objects and obtain decent prints.
