Which images? The renders or uploaded photos?
How would you use the retrieved images?

A bit of explanation why you need it will help make the case to add such an option.

Personally, I agree with requesting such an option.. I'd like to make a catalog of images available on my personal website, and I'd like it to automatically stay in sync with my Shapeways shop.

"First to try" is such a disaster in its current state. One of my cufflinks was 3d printed 3 times successfully, I've improved the cufflink back, everything is the same, just the back changed, and now better and Cooler, and it's a minor change in terms of printability. Now it says first to try, there are real photos of it. A disaster for designers.

Also it's mind boggling for customers. What? Wait a minute. You're emphasizing the fact that the products they order have a chance of not being able to be produced. And many of the products in this website should be like this, that the website owner was overwhelmed to put this remark.

And even damaging to shapeways reputation.

And you're again drowning the average customer with too many details.

And the printability rate: You incept this idea deep down in the customer's mind: "This thing can be printed 10 times, 9 times successful and that 1 time unsuccessfull may come to me, I'm already an unlucky person. I should not take this risk."

Give us a break, we are already dealing with issues like low traffic to the website, not being able to have stocks, etc. This is a backwards step.

Best regards.

This is my first D3 Printing project that I did with my 12 year old son... we made a simple cylinder and put text as a cut out by using 3D text.. They said "vI am very sorry to hear the models you ordered in Full Color Sandstone got rejected. The reason is that both models are having shells, this means that not all parts are attached to the main body, this can also be seen in the pictures you received with the rejection email. "

What am I missing.. why will not work.. seems like it should be fine.

Thanks for the help..

Bill

I think the Letters like O are the Problem. The middle Part, what is normally the hole in the O is hanging in the Air.
You can simply remove these parts.

I've completed survey. Thé products are very good, yet I would like to see like 20 percent of them in my home. Every product can be sold I think. I liked the wall clock with birds, big ben, astronaut, book end, tea bag holding sail, bronze apple, tooth shaped toothbrush holder, Miniature car most and would like to have at home. Thé other ones are still good looking and well designs, but I wouldn't like to see an insect or the fat Lady who's having time with the cellphone. And just 1 design among all, only 1, I didn't find satisfactory is the low Poly deer. It just lacks the Feeling of a good design.

By the way, you can visit my shop (I'm just at the beginning, so there are less items) and criticise openly like I do.

Hello,

I am a professional 3D Modeler with a background in creating and designing 3d characters, vehicles and environments for miniatures, 3d printing and movies.
My abilities and services extend to any 3d model whether it is a miniature, toy, sculpture, mechanical parts and others.
During the creation of the project I offer to keep my clients up-to-date with screenshots, renders and 3d previews and am more than willing to make any necessary changes to suit the vision of the client.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to working with all of you!

I am having a problem with thin walls in my model. The errors that are shown are inconsistent because in different places in the model with same dimensions some have errors others not.

Can anyone help me on this?

Thank you

Due to the way the Voxels are computed, the tool will have issues catching everything.. that's why it's backed up by a human check before printing.

Your small letters B,P,O,R will have trouble, because the support peice is only 0.15mm - that thin support needs to be thicker in ALL cases, regardless of what the tool is showing.

I'm using Safari. It was updated on July 5th so I guess it could have been that. I've tried to find an answer to this on my own and haven't had any luck.

Unfortunately I do not have any experience with Safari. I take it you have already confirmed that WebGL is still marked as enabled in the "Develop" menu ?
(Do other WebGL sites still work, e.g. the test code on http://get.webgl.org or the demo applications on threejs.org ? Have you tried with a different browser, e.g. firefox or chromium ?)

Yes, I have checked all that and it works on other sites. I just tried the Chrome browser and it is working on Shapeways there. I'm not sure what is going on with it on Safari though.

Thanks for your reply. If anyone knows what could be happening with Safari please let me know.

@GlenG - Thanks for the tip.

I looked into the two-part resin and it looks like the way to go, but I also found liquid enamel paint; comes in little vials like the ones pictured below.

index.php?t=getfile&id=66598&private=0

Is that something else that would work? I'm not looking to fill a lot of space and was wondering if I primer the areas and applied the paint thick enough (was thinking with an eye-dropper) will it hold or would it fall out/chip eventually?

Open the file in Netfabb Basic.
Click the Red + sign for Repair.
Select the green cube in the center of the toolbar "Select Shells"
Click on the largest turret.
Press CTRL and then click to select the two tracks and barrel that go with it.
Right click, and select "Extract Selected Triangles as Part"
As soon as the extract is done, right click again and select "Export Part" and pick a new filename.

Repeat for the other two sets.
