I've been trying to print out a 3D full color model, but I have now just one issue with it. I'm able to make the model itself a .x3d file and put it into a zip like the guidelines suggest, but I'm unable to change the texture of it to a png gif or jpg because file is always looking for a .tga image. Does anyone know how to fix this? If needed I can link the files i have right now

Here we go, a bead-like thing with a spectral color surface design. This is the standard Shapeways color render. It's time to sign up for the color plastic access and see how this turns out!

I could have gone with more layers but that's a lot more work. I don't think there's a way within Tinkercad to add colors to an object via their internal scripting but it might be worth a check to cut down on typing.

Hi...

Any idea what I'm missing here?

I upload a .stl file to https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/. The file uploads, and the repair icon turns white, pauses, turns back to gray, then download icon turns white. I click the download icon and it _instantly_ turns back to gray, without even asking for my desired local destination.

I look under the History tab at netfabb, and see my file listed with status "success", but when I click on it netfabb says "The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable." I've tried History again after 15 minutes, a couple of hours, and 24 hours. Still have same error message.

A few weeks ago I had the same problem, but _eventually_ one, and only one, of my success files in History actually was available. Seems like black magic to me.

Aargggh! 8^)

Thanks tons,

Oh... I should have mentioned, I've tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer (Win 7), no joy with either.
