It doesn't look like a button. Using the latest fad in interface design, things are undecorated or even cryptically half-hidden. Here it looks like a blue text (maybe with underline... local config forces underlines) to the right of the section names already created. Like this:

Shop Sections
[ Add a shop section... ]
+ Add Section
One section Delete
Another section Delete

Or you hit one of those "funny" bugs that only affects some accounts and not others.

Sometimes scaling the model won't help if something is still too thin after scaling. For example, doubling the scale of something that's 0.3 mm wide only gets you to 0.6 mm, which is too thin for WSF but multiplies the material cost by eight. Also, say you're designing for steel. If scaling puts your longest dimension above 76 mm, your minimum wall thickness goes from 1.0 mm to 1.5 mm.

I suggest you keep the same scale but enlarge the angle and/or the thickness of the thinner tips, especially for the two yellow areas right beside the curls. Seeing a single yellow edge or corner is better than seeing a longer yellow surface on both sides of a wall.

You can think about it like this: You'd have a harder time snapping off a corner with your fingers than you would a thin plate sticking out from that corner. Same with polishing pellets repeatedly hitting your print.

I'm not an expert but HTH.

i was wondering what are the guidelines for making a model to sell. Can i make a model of an item in a random game and sell it or are models of game items copyright issues?
the models i have made so far but didn't sale are:

  • legend of zelda rupee
  • Legend of Zelda Skull Token
  • Kingdom Hearts Xehanort Keyblade

would any of these be a problem to sale and how would i know about future models i make?

Simple answer: with tens of millions of other things to design, why copy something existing?

Per the terms of the US DMCA "safe harbor" regulations, Shapeways enforces take down notices when the copyright holder notifies them. Until the copyright holder finds your items, you might get away with using copyrighted material. But, why push the limits of what might get you in trouble?

Formal answer: Find a lawyer in your country with experience in Copyright Law and ask them what you can do. Most of the forum members here are NOT lawyers, and can not offer you legal advice.

I've got a CTC makerbot copy which I now use for making some of the larger models that have got too expensive at Shapeways since the WSF price changes.

It's not as flexabile as the Shapeways printers and some of the designs have had to be simplified, but it's letting me expand my range into things that would be uneconomic to produce via Shapeways.

Sometimes the surface finish is better that WSF too !

Have been ordering many times. Lost Walmart Visa debit Money Card. Ran my balance to near zero and purchased new card (# ending in 2360) and added $100.00. Was going to add new card but before I had a chance to choose new card, rejection of old card appeared. This is a bug. Added new card and rejection continues. This is a bug. Netflix accepted it. Card is set-up properly ans account shows $100.00. I have a valid card and need to place an order.

HELP. Can you fix this on your end. All is well on this end!
