If you have multiple shipments in production at any one time some of which have been added to previous ones, is there any way to see which one is due to be sipped with each other one?

I submitted a WSF order on 25th August then another with some larger objects that would take longer on 27th of August. both of these to ship separately. I then added 3 new small orders on 28th and 29th August which I thought would be added to the second order and shipped with that.

Now the first order has been finished for a couple of days but not yet shipped. In this case it's not important as it's not urgent, but I assume this is because it's waiting for one of the later orders to finish. I had also assumed the 3 later orders would be added to the last order, but I can't see a way to see how these are dependant on each other and work out when things will ship. I suspect I may have made a bo-bo and combined all 5 together.

Now although it does not matter this time, there might be times in the future when it did matter - is contacting customer services the only way I could sort this out ?

@andrewsimonthomas I fixed the design and put the text on the outside of the case.

I also just recieved my case in the mail and everything turned out great!! Minus a few minor dimensions i screwed up... Anyway, here's a couple pictures of my case!!

I created this character I call "The Navartian" I'd like a 3D model of him to be made in sandstone printing. I don't own a 3D printer, so I'm looking for design and printing possibly a maximum of 3 models anywhere between 6 inches to 12 inches tall (with aspect ratio) depending on price. he does have a red cape and front insignia. Front insignia can be flat or protruding, but he's a nice round blue character almost like a Mr. Men type.

Depending I may want to do 1 more with a different logo on his chest.

Thank you

A fully operational internal combustion or steam engine. With 3d printing, you could print it all together in one piece, plug it in and away you go... i have an idea for an air compressor as well, but I think I would start with a homemade lathe...

I approached it with the simple goal of it being an outlet for my 3D modeling Hobby. Seeing the prices for my first uploads really cemented it and it was pretty clear to me that there were some niches within 3D printing that were more likely/reliable to make a notable income, for example doing jewelry where you can "get away" with a larger markup due to the perceived "artistic" nature of the designs compared to other designs or design something for a community that needs something particular where you can get a notable amount of sales from. Obviously there are other factors to consider as well but at a foundational level at least I feel this should hold true.

It's just the nature of it but frankly for me after years of only being able to experience my designs digitally it has been really great to experience them physically for the first time too.

"Models must be *.stl or *.obj"

What is the reason for this? I have taken to the habit of uploading almost everything in x3d (generally with full white coloring) because it leaves open long term compatibility with color printing processes, potential ShapeJS based color customization down the line, and other various reasons relating to the use of external renders. I could re-upload them in stl format but why?




"and that the shopper has instructions to understand the maximum number of characters they can use"

This can be rather nebulous seeing as a character box might end up displaying 2 small letter m, 3 capital letter M, or 21 small letter i. Can you stipulate a better rule here? The letter sizes and horizontal spaces are all over the place depending on the text string entered so if you could state a standard way of specifying text line holding capability it would help us all to better convey this information to the shoppers.

There are two versions of the the scratch card scraper (for instant Lotto type scratch cards). Same design for both but one for embossing and the other for engraving. Text on one side, image on the other.

Thank you UniverseBecoming for the detailed explanation. But I still have not figured it out.

I am attaching a picture to point out my thought.

OH!!!! I SEE IT NOW!! GOOD CATCH! :D

I didn't notice the word embossed the first time I looked and I didn't make the connection with the graphics or the subject matter of the guideline. But you did! Good going!

Yep, they'll need to correct that.

Thanks for responding my dear brother James,

The basis law of the Universe is: same attract the same- opposite of the belief system of our up side down civilization.

I did not do it, but a friend of mine who used INVENTOR program. The model is dodecahedron with pyramid added to each side of the dodeca. Both dodeca and pyramids must be hollow (empty inside) - it is my requirement. So, dodeca consists just of edges of 50mm length which are 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.2mm wide. The pyramid is hollow consisting of just walls which are 1.2mm thick in order to fit to the dodeca, and the slope of the sides is the same as the slope of the dodeca - in order to be one unit. The problem is that he chosen very small wall thickness, just 1.2mm, so when I scale to fit into maximal box for printing, it becomes too small. If the thickness would be 2.2mm it would be good.

That is why I thought if the thickness of dodeca edges cound be changes into 2.2 x 2.2 x 2.2mm and the thickness of pyramid (see attach) walls could be also changed into 2.2mm, everything would be good. Actually, the length the dodeca edges and its XYZ dimensions define everything.

Yes, there may be an easy way to do it, but I do not know how to change it. I am not specialist in it at have and have just STLViewer so I can view stl files.

Love&Joy

I AM ILIJA

It heats and stirs, unfortunally the temperature is only 60°C
Maybe i have to mod it so it's heats a bit more and keeps stirring.

Don't worry, we don't use it anymore for milk.
