Just make sure you use a 5mm handle for full-scale figures and a 3mm handle for Cyberverse/kreon scale figures.

Or, if you want to get really tricky, make a handle that is 3mm on the bottom, and 5mm at the top...then anyone can hold it.

Example.

Hey gang,

I just received my first Shapeways print and it was half the size of what the file is supposed to be.

Can someone create or point me to an obj file (I'm using 3dsmax) that I can import into my file to check for size? If I have something like a 1 cm cube, I can size my model to a size I know works.

Thanks in advance,

John Staats

I'd suggest opening the model in Netfabb Basic - www.netfabb.com
There you can check all the dimensions in a single glance, and you can re-size the model if necessary using the Part/Scale tool.

I was able to render, tag, price. The only thing is that the render images don't appear in shop. Can't find any button that would do just that. The only time I can see the renders is when I click at the end of details page in this

*This feature is not yet visible to shoppers. Save changes to see a preview of what your page will look like here.

But they don't appear in shop


Thanks

That's because the new renders are currently still in the trial phase - this feature is expected to go live (with renders automatically generated for all shop items where necessary) sometime "at the beginning of August".

Hi everybody.

We put together a survey to find out what kind of products people want / need. It's a simple survey, the question is always the same: would you have the product on the picture (or something similar) in your home? Yes / No. :)

The poll closes on the 10th of August. If you give us your email address in the end we'll email you the results, so you can study them for yourself. I promise, we won't spam you constantly, but you'll be subscribed to our newsletter. After we send the results you can obviously just simply unsubscribe if you don't want any more emails. :)

Please help us find out what products need to be 3d printed by filling this form and sending it to your friends!

The survey is here:

Thank for the help,
Dave

I do not believe this survey makes much sense without knowing what your actual designs are going to look like - few will feel a dire need for a 3d-printed wall clock or unspecified "insects" no matter what the details. (And calling a startup company "Folds" does not sound overly optimistic either...)
