I've just set up Google Analytics on my shop (about an hour ago) but on my shop page (logged out) and my model pages, a different account number is showing. Mine is UA-26483705-2, and the one embeded in the my pages is UA-4437079-1.

Does the system take a while to update?

Cheers,
Paul

[edit]
Update - Had a chat with Barry in SW live chat & he's fixed the issue.
Thanks Barry Smile

In the new product management there are now links to the calculation for the retail price for each model/material combination.

Which is nice.

Except that someone's forgotten to do the adding up...

I am having a bit of an issue editing text for my models.

It appears to me that there are /sort/ of two sections - one for a title and one for the body of the text? or are there two sections here?

I sometimes click on the existing description and see that I can edit here, WHILE the "body" of the text seems to remain static and not editable. This area remains a sort of blue color I think.

Anyway, should I be getting ALL the text in one box? Like if I delete everything in the box I am in will it remove everything? Or are there two sections here one for title and one for body of text?

I've found this confusing and can't tell if I should be logged in somewhere else to edit the body of the text, if something is wrong with my system somehow or what is going on.

Thanks for any thoughts.

I am having problems using the "upload new model" (or replace model or whatever) option on my design's page. I am trying to upload a new model that is 50% of the size of the original and I can't tell whether the upload is working or not.

The price seems to stay the same and the image seems to stay the same and I can't figure out how to know what is going on. Is this just me?

is there somewhere that I can review the name of my models' FILE NAMES that I have uploaded? I can't see how I am supposed to make sure that the files are correctly uploaded if I don't see the name of the file.

ALSO, I have a whole series of models that start with the same word - like "MyModel_whatever I want to say.stl". Right now I am getting emails from Shapeways that say "We are sorry, your model MyModel had a problem...". But I have no way of knowing if this was MyModel_cute_pony.stl or if it was MyModel.purple_unicorn.stl or if it was - well anyway, I can't tell which model Shapeways had a problem with...

Help?

P.S. I /love/ Shapeways

For me it would be a big help if this sort criteria could be split in two topics:

Creation Date: ordered in the same ways as now
Update Date: ordered by "Last file upload"

in that way I can sort out done updates.

I looked and couldn't find any threads about this. There HAS to be .. I mean .. seems like this would be something that has been at least suggested before.

On the right side of the shop we have shop sections. Cool. Works and all that. Great. Why only on the right? Seems to me that it would make sense to have the Shop Sections as tabs across the top of the shop. If you had too many sections so that you couldn't display them all as tabs .. simply have a scroll arrow on either side of the tab row.

Come on. If you had ... [nuts] [bolts] [washers] across the top of the shop it would be EASY to navigate. The shop sections already exists .. the code for the tabs would have to be written but I doubt that would be a major programming thing.

1.
If I want to post an item which gots an update of the stl file recently then facebook shows an old image.
(The image from the previous version

I have an office/business page on facebook and want to publish new things there.

2.
I have disconnected my personal facebook link. Afterwards I logged out and take a look from outside. But the reference to facebook was still visible for the public.
What is not intended from my side.

3.
I want to connect to my business side, is that possible?

Since we are speaking about the prices discount for Strong and Flexible materials, why not speaking about metal?
The details are here.
So for Antique Bronze Glossy or Matt, the pricing is:
- from 0 cm³ to 1 cm³, minimum price product: $12.00
- from 1 cm³ to 5 cm³: $10 per cm³
- from 5 cm³ to 10 cm³: $9 per cm³
- more than 10cm³: $8 per cm³
For Stainless Steel instead it is a flat $10 per cm³

This mean that for large objects like this dice set, the price is higher for regular Stainless Steel than for this same material with an additional post-production:
Quote:

Next, your model is patinated and baked in an oven. After which it is machine polished once more. We recommend using it for quite detailed and strong objects where the properties of metal come in handy or are aesthetic. Objects will be quite smooth, though small printing lines remain visible.

Does that really make sense? Should I advise my customers to choose Antique Bronze instead of Stainless Steel to minimize their expenses?

I think we should have the same kind of discount on Stainless Steel...
For instance:
- from 0 cm³ to 1 cm³: $10 per cm³ (no minimum)
- from 1 cm³ to 5 cm³: $8 per cm³
- from 5 cm³ to 10 cm³: $7 per cm³
- more than 10cm³: $6 per cm³

Tag Search Improvement is Live [message #23983] Thu, 17 February 2011 19:53 UTC
Anonymous Coward
Until today, we had an interface to create tags for models you upload, and we would display them on each product page. However, they were not clickable--they were just plain text that didn't do anything particularly interesting.

We've made a small tweak and the tags on each product page are now links. Click one, and it searches our database of products to display all others using that tag.

Be sure when you add tags to a product, to separate each tag with a comma. You can use multi-word tags, so a space alone is not enough to define where the tag ends.

Questions and feedback are welcome!

Scenario as follows:
- Model is (privately) available in only a few materials
- An order is placed
- The order is cancelled, likely caused by wall thickness lottery or alike
- All subsequent uploads fail with:
Quote:

There's a problem with your new model 'blah blah'

Based upon the size, volume and wallthickness of your product there is no printer available which is able to print your product. Please adjust the volume and/or size of your product.
which makes you think about a sizing issue or alike, but It turns out that the order cancellation has also disabled all materials which seems to block any future corrective upload.

The (somewhat strange) solution is to first re-enable at least one material prior to any new upload.

How does Shapeways send earnings via Paypal, so that the show owner does not pay Paypal fee for receiving money?

Is the fee paid by Shapeways somehow? I do not find a checkbox "fee to be paid by sender" on "Send money" page.

We now have the option to set individual markups for each material but it would be nice to have an extra entry in the material drop-down for all materials.

Yes I know we can go into "Go to product inventory" but I've got 80+ items now in my shop and it takes a significant time to load that - and it's one more step to have to go through when adding an item

I only noticed the little currency flag in my model pages recently. It was Canadian - which is where I am. Then I messed around with changing it to see what would happen with the price. Now, no matter what I do it keeps reverting back to the Albanian flag! I then checked a few other stores and all theirs were Albanian too! Now unless they were all actually from that country (!) why does the flag not stay on the country it's set to?

Take a look at this thread and add your voice to it. It is my concept on how to save shapeways hundreds of dollars and each of us a few dollars a month.

http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=2128 7&#msg_21287

Only saves money for those of us that buy there own designs but I am assuming that is a lot of us.

It seems that the shop sections counters show all the items, not just the ones you can really buy or at least see. It even lists "own" or "contracted" sections with no public items at all, instead of just hidding them. So you visit a section that says to contain 16 but only see 12 or other with 5 and then get nothing.

For some of my topics I would be happy when there would be 2 or 4 default images available from different views (front, left, right, back).
I simple did that for one entry by rotating the stl file and downloading and uploading the back image on myself.
But that can be an easy tweak for your guys and would make life easier:

When a Shop owner is looking at his/her Order Report the MarkUps can be confusing if there are items that were cancelled for whatever reason after being ordered. The column does not reflect these amounts as credits and thus when totalling the column(s) the owner has to take these figures into account and remove them from the calculation.

If they were listed as a credit it would simply be a matter of totalling the column to get the right amount(s).

Hello creators!


Question about the shop: When I put a product in the shop ,the standard black and white rendering is showed. How do I swap this with my own pictures and renderings?


Tnx

{edit}
Found out myself: just select model in 'my designs' .Then on the right select "Main thumbnail image:".


Happy shaping!

I have all my stuff organized on Vimeo. Is there a workaround for getting this link in Shapeways or do I need to upload all my stuff to YouTube?

Also, are there good places and good ways to get Flickr and/or other links into Shapeways in a convenient and direct way (so that the link is active)? I have supplemental visual information for my shop that I would like to link to.

Thanks,

- I would love to see in which materials my sales were ordered.

- And for co-creators it would especially be helpful to know in which material it was ordered. (details/wall-thickness)

- Would also still like to see "time" of sales, next to the date

Just to say setting the markup as a percentage of the material price is the first thing I missed when furnishing my brand new store.

As it is known to be on your ToDo list I just wanted to give it a polite kick to push it one or two positions higher in the priority ranking Smile

Would be great to have an own BLOG for my shop attached to the shapeways blog.

It can be listed under Shops in Categories.

It can be used to:
- announce new items
- Show printed results
- report problems and hints
- adding tutorials for your own items
...
I think all shop owners can think over a lot of additional topice which can be placed there.

In general advertisment could be supported by such a blog.

Just thought of this as I was looking at my items, and I drew an item for a guy, that he probably won't order another, and no one else will probably order it. I could move it to private in case he decides to order another, but it would be nice if we could make private models and add people to be able to view it. A private invitation shop.

I was thinking while looking at the two recent topics on test prints. It would be a pain to have 3 models that were the minimum thickness for the 3 different thickness requirements. What if we could upload a hollow shell that the thickness would be done by shapeways on a material basis. That way you'd know you got the cheapest model for that model and material possible without having to draw it all three ways.

- List view doesn't work for me
- Results per page doesn't work (only 10 items were shown nevertheless what I select)
- If something is changed the order of the items is changed. That's not a good idea, because the order of the items can be user edited in the shop. That is destroyed by an automatic reordering.
- Previous/Next Buttons should be also under the save button, because that's the most used combination.
- Sometimes the next item of the gallery is shown and not my next item. I can't reproduce that but it happens from time to time.
- Sometimes the basket is not shown over the item picture. After a reload of the page it workes oncemore.
- Adding a shop section needs a "save" to be effective. From time to time the "save" button is not selectable after a change.
- A material restriction "White & flexible (all colors)" would be nice. Since adding that is a lot of unnecessary work.
- Sorry to say, but in the meantime the missing public "bug status list" is a bug for me. Let's take a look on the first side of this forum:
- Material restrictions ... uncommentet/status unclear
- Interesting Math ... uncommented/status unclear

So here goes:

- for viewers in Europe, would it be possible to show the price they have to pay in euro's, including vat? This is more clear, and probably more attractive to them as the number in euro's will be lower than the number in dollars.

- if I'm not mistaken, at them moment you have to create an account in order to buy. Would it be possible to add the possibility of buying without creating an account, like many webshops have?

- oh and another one, some people told me they were kept off buying some of my items by the minimum amount of 25 dollar. I would personally prefer a fixed shipping cost, and lower material costs. Anyone who shops on the net is used to this.

Cheers, Michiel

I've seen this bug sporadically during the last months.

Today I had it on each side that the red basket (order) icon is missing on (1-2) items per page. If you click on the item the item is orderable.

What would be nice is an actual 'storefront' to people's stores. Doesn't have to be much - just the ability to add a little front-end design to a store and a description of what the store's main drive/theme is - if any. Obviously some people would want to just stick with just a collection of images but it's something I would want to have available to me as a creator and something I would find useful as a consumer.

I noticed this before, but on the home page, under printed models see what others have done with their printed models. Days like today all the images there are renderings. I saw my double headed coin, and I know it hasn't been printed yet. I guess if you upload images it automatically goes into this category?

Hi Joris et al,

Great update on the shop, so now people can see all my models in one view.

Minor problem: texts overlap in the "list" view. See below. Can you fix that?

Thanks.

Oskar

For some reason the product order buttons have not been showing up properly. At first most had the buttons but some had a stack of bars above the image. Now I have no buttons but I still have stacks of bars above some of the images.

I know at least once, I have made the booboo of putting the description in a comment instead. I think you should be able to delete you own comments. Instead of marking them as inappropriate.

Hi Shapeways,

Is your service available as webservice? Or do you have any plans in this direction?

A webservice would enable applications to upload a model and order it directly from Shapeways, without as a designer having to go through the web interface.

A very popular puzzle design tools is Burrtools.
http://burrtools.sourceforge.net/
This open source tool creates perfect STLs. An "Order from Shapeways" button would make it very easy for its users to get a sample of a design. And such a button would be good publicity for Shapeways. However, in order for this to become possible, Shapeways should be available as a webservice.

What do you think?

Best regards,

Oskar

Good day all.

Well today I tried to upload some models of my new ring.
Besides the probably well known thin wall rejection galore, what mostly wonders me is....where did they go?
The thin wall issue is another story to tackle since all my programs like Nedfabb and Meshlab say all is good.

I did all the upload steps needed, put a price on it, assign materials etc and I got the needed e-mails telling me that I did upload them etc.
However they won't show up in my models folder.
If I follow the links in the e-mail's I get to the models and can change things however nothing under my models or in my shop.
Besides some older models I already had there.

Can some one tell me this is a bug or did I do something wrong or missed a step?

Any help would relieve me from some frustrations.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Jay
