Hi all,

we fixed a nasty shopowner invoice bug today. For certain users they didn't receive an email with a shopowner invoice for when they had sold models in their shop.
These are now recreated and sent.

Best,

Barry

Hi all,

we had a small site update today.

- The calculations of the surface area of old models are finished. All models that made it through the current processing chain have Glazed Ceramics now available as material. Note, you have to remove this material yourself from the restricted materials list.
- Remove double base64 encode requirement for models in the SOAP API. Any double encoded models will still be accepted to make it backwise compatible.
- Earlier this week we had an update in the options for the availability and view state of models. We made two checkboxes 'Listed on site?' and 'Allow others to purchase?' to replace the old dropdown for 'show and allow ordering'.

On 2011-05-19 from 04:00-06:00 UTC the site will be updated (storage upgrade).

This is when the downtime will start and this is when it will end in your local time.

Hi all,

we had a small site update today. We fixed the following issues:

- The manual approval of new shops has been removed. Users that create a new shop can edit them directly.

- The shopcategory links on the shop page and shop-detail page were not working because they do their selection on the category name instead of the category id. This has been fixed.

- When you clicked on the username of a customer in your 'my to do' list on the mydesigns page, you are redirected to the forum pm. After sending the pm, you should be redirected to the mydesigns page. This redirection was broken when you clicked the preview message button.

- You couldnt save your profile when you were logged in normally and had a connection to facebook/twitter in your profile settings, while you were not connected at that time. This has been fixed.

Hi all,

yesterday we had a small update. We released the following features/bugfixes:

- The tags on the product details page (view mode) are now clickable and end up to the gallery search page with the filter for that tag pre-selected.

- Due to the new markup per material setting in product details page and markup inventory page, the Shapeways api could not handle markup settings anymore. This has been fixed for now and a markup set in the upload api will hold for every material of that model.

Hi all,

yesterday we had a site update. We released the following features/bugfixes:

- There were some javascript errors for IE7, that occured on various places that could cause the login for example not to work. These have been fixed.

- We released a new version of MeshMedic and updated some other scripts in our upload chain. This includes that there will be less failing uploads for collada files. This occured when a collada file instantiates the same node multiple times. Also references to textures in vrml (def/use for color, normals, textures) were removed, so this has been fixed. The new meshmedic include fixes for rounding errors in volume calculation if a part is far away from the origin and it improved boolean and mesh merging stability.


- The lightpoem has a slightly less maximum textlength (175 instead of 255) to prevent that the lightpoem will be rejected due to the polygon limit.

Hi all,

I'm trying to find which parts in our website generate an annoying (segfault) error.
For this I might have to restart the site a few times, sorry for this.
Just reload the page if you're thrown out and all should be fine.

Hi all,

we had a major site update yesterday. Two months ago we had the first part of the new architecture of our site, yesterday we launched the second part. Though it has no functionality changes, it will help for our future development.

Besides that we launched our new Gift coupons . Never can decide what to give your friends/family as a gift? Let them choose themselves by giving them a gift coupon.

We also changed the 'lost password' process. In case you forgot your password, you can now directly change them on the site (after a confirmation by email) instead of a new random password is sent to you by email.

Kind regards,
Barry

Hi All,

A second release in one week! This time on the regular Thursday morning time slot.

Today's update includes the following new features:

Share 'My Favorites'
Users are now able to share their favorite products collection to other users. An option to turn his favorites public is added to the 'my designs' page.

Google Analytics support for shop owners
A shopowners can now track his/her shop using Google Analytics. You can add your Google Analytics code in the shop configuration page and from then on, your shop landing page and product pages will be monitored.

Communicate leadtime on payment options
In the order summary we now show the leadtime for each payment option. This to prevent confusion, as bank transfers typically take a bit longer to clear, compared to paypal.

And the following Fixes

  • On a Mac, using Chrome the image on the product detail page shrinks when clicking on the image. We updated a library so it is now combatible with the latest Chrome version.
  • Some pages had 'Shapeways |' gone from the title (shown as window title). We fixed that.


Kind regards, Arno

Hi all,

Yesterday we updated our site. We released the following features and bugfixes:


Download original uploaded file
Product owners can now download the original uploaded file and make this download available for other users.

Set product availability to "hidden"
With products set to hidden, products can't be found through the galleries and search options, but other people can still buy the product by means of the direct URL of the product. An extra random security key is added to the URL and the owner can see this URL in his product details page and can share it to the one he wants to sell his product.

Bankpayment order confirmation lightbox
An extra confirmation lightbox is added for bankpayment orders to prevent customers mistakely choosing bankpayment while they dont want to.

Add material info to Co-Creator info order
In the 'my to do' list for co-creator designers the material is added, so the designer can keep in mind the design rules for certain materials (think of wall-thickness).

Placeholder for images added to the galleries
A placeholder for images is added to the galleries to speed up the rendering of the page.

move "your model is being processed..." beneath thumb
The "your model is being processed..." box when you update your model is now placed directly under the thumb of your model.

Kind regards,
Barry

Hi All,

Today we had another release which introduces a nice new feature for you. We have done a major update to the material selection

With the growth of the number of materials, the dropdown to select in which material you'd want to order a product was not handy anymore. And, you cannot see the materials.

Hence we have made a new material selection. It has been moved from the right column to the main screen on the product details page. We have grouped the materials to types. For each material we show a picture and an explanation. When you select a material, the model price in that material is displayed.

We expect the new material selection to be a big improvement.


Along the way, we also did a bugfix for the displayed prices for creator models (eg lightpoem, ringpoem). The product details page listed the price without VAT. With this fix, when you are logged in, the price including VAT is displayed.


Kind regards, Arno van Rossum


PS: Due to the material selection change, we are updating the price cache (we calculate the price for each model in each material). This takes some server time, so today model uploads can take longer to process, sorry for the inconvenience

Hi All,

Just wanted to inform you of today's update which had some minor changes for you:

Putting your products in a specific order in your shop using the "edit my shop" page had some issues, especially for large shops (eg, Oskars Puzzles). We think it is under control now, sorry for the inconvenience.

And:
We noticed that the forum kept on sending mails as joris@shapeways where we had the configuration changed. Confusing.
We fixed that, so now the forum mails originate from service@shapeways.com


More next week Very Happy

Kind regards, Arno

Hi all,

Today we had a minor release, with some fixes and improvements:

* We could not yet use the same subcategory name under different main categories. Now we can, so we can for each main category create eg a category for co-creators

* The site search results now shows the user avatar for results that are of type user.

* The product details page automatically gets meta tags for title, description and keywords, making your models better to find.

* From the order screen you can use the 'continue shopping' link to return to the product details. If you did that, the 'back to gallery' link on the product details page was broken, which is now fixed.

* The default sort in My Design gallery is now on model upload date

* Model owners can now see the model volume in the product details page


Earlier this week the following we already released a fix so that models which are for sale do not get the 'not for sale' marking when viewing them in the gallery, which happened for some models.

kind regards, Arno

Hi all,

Yesterday we updated our site. We released the following features and bugfixes:

Model details received an update
The model details page is now converted to a product details page. We feel this better reflects on what the page is about.

Product description edit box has moved from right column to main page
This way the product description is much easier to edit and format. There is more room and the position is the same as for your customers.

Tweet about your order
When you place an order with us you can tell the world about the wonderful things you bought with us. Totally voluntary of course. Very Happy
Available on the order confirmation page.

Easier selection of payment method when you order
The payment options were a bit hidden inside the order review page. It is now much easier to spot that you can choose and what the options are.

Opt-in for manual model fixing
Failed uploads of 3D models were automatically added to the manual model fixing queue. This is now an opt-in option which you can select on the model upload page.

Removed "Enlarge" button from product details page


We also fixed the following issues:
* saving product categories sometimes failed when the max. number of categories were selected
* site search (right top corner) failed when you used quotes ""
* Hanging blue overlay in category box in FF 3.6.6
* Deleted models were not removed from the search index

Best,

Robert

Hi All,

This week we have done our site-update on Wednesday. We have the following features and improvements:

* Youtube video

Robert already hinted to this feature after the previous update and it is finally here:
From now on you have the ability to add a youtube link to the model details. The video will be embedded on the model detail page.
In the galleries you can easily see which products have a youtube video as they have a little 'play' icon over the thumbnail.


* Product search improvement
We have improved the results of the product search. More relevant products will be shown higher in the search results.


* Layout issues subcategories
Some layout issues for the subcategories have now been fixed.


Kind regards, Arno

Hi All,

Today we've done a minor update of our site.

* For our non-metric users we have added the bounding box size at the models detail page in inches. (you can select between inches and centimeters, you choice will be saved in a cookie).

* Updated the layout of the tooltips (as announced with the May 27th release)

* The ShareThis code had a little update to show the icons directly instead of alternating (easier for the eye Wink )

* Fixed a bug in the removal of products from categories. Sometimes the product stayed visible in a category, even when the category was removed from the product (caching issue)

Kind regards, Arno

Hi all,

last week we had a major update of our site. I already mentioned this briefly in the server migration thread but it deserves it's own thread ...

We introduced Euro currency support on our site. This is fulfilling a big wish of our European customers.

In your checkout where the Shapeways order summary is shown, you can now choose between:

  • Paypal Dollars
  • Paypal Euros
  • Bank transfer

making it possible to go to Paypal and pay with Euros. For bank transfer you can choose yourself to transfer Dollars or Euros.

Accompanying this feature, we list all model prices in both Dollars and Euros, and in your shopping cart the totals are displayed in Euros too.

I am sure you'll appreciate this feature (at least, all in the Euro zone)


Also we did some smaller changes/fixes to the site:

  • hide comment page numbering on model details when there is only 1 page of comments - the 1 at the bottom looked a bit silly in case there were not much comments
  • social bookmarking / tagging - For all models and shops there is now be a social sharing widget that allows you to easily and quickly share the model or shop with various social websites
  • updated the forum icon/lightbolt "new content" to have more contrast
  • when visiting the design overview page of a non-shopowner, it had 'my designs' as title instead of <name>'s designs, we fixed that.


Kind regards, Arno van Rossum

Hi All,

Today we have had another site update. The most noticeable for you is that we updated the gallery component.
We have made it more uniform so that all galleries look the same. You can notice this eg on the home page where the displayed models now show prices and small icons (the shopping cart when the model is for sale, the wrench when it is a co-creator template).

The new galleries meant re-indexing the models. As you have already uploaded so many models, this took a while.

Other minor changes are:
- The tickbox for e-mail preferences on profile wasn't working correctly, this has now been corrected.
- Community has a new sub menu: contests (and yes, we noticed that you don't see that option yet when on the forum Sad sorry, working on that to get it fixed asap)

Kind regards, Arno

We have compiled two documents to give you some background information on our printing process. The first, 'What is 3D printing?' explains the basics of Rapid Manufacturing and gives some useful links to external resources on the topic.

The second, 'Production Method - FDM', describes the printing process that is currently in use by us, shows some product samples and lists the properties of FDM models.

I hope you'll find it useful!

Hey all,

I am excited by new Digital Preview mode that Shapeways implemented few months ago. Could anyone explain how Digital Preview renders the model exactly in the material that was chosen? Is it possible to create such preview for shop that outside the Sapeways?

As an example, I would like to have a sandstone fullcolor digital preview on the site.

I have a web app which helps the user generate a 3D model.

From teh web app, I have an "Upload to Shapeways" button at teh end of the creation process, but also a download the model button.

I don't want the user to leave my web app to sign in to shapeways, so I'm opening a new popup with teh auth URL I get from the Shapeways OAuth service. Problem is I'm getting stuck in many ways and my limited brain could do with a good example or workflow of how to proceed. Is there a suitable example I could use? all the ones I've seen leave the app or require signing in first (which I really don't want).

Thanks.

Hi,

to be honest - the API seems a little bit too complicated for using it in small, non-commercial software projects. It would be much easier just to send a mail from the user's mail client to shapeways, which contains the created stl file as attachment and a standard text. Minutes later the user could then receive a reply mail with a link to his uploaded object and then decide if he wants to create an account or sign in if he already has one. No need for consumer keys, developer authentication etc. Of course this wouldn't be an option for business owners, but an interesting alternative for hobby developers.

best regards, Hendrik

Hi,

I'm new to shapeways, and I want to be able to create my a shop on my business website where people can select and buy the 3d prints the same way they would do if they went directly onto my shop in the shapeways website. Presumably this is what the API business is that people are working on here? I'm not entirely sure.

Is this possible? From what I've seen it looks like it, but where do you start?

Hi,

How does the price api determine the currency that is returned? I'm only getting the price in USD, but my primary audience will be interested in the price in euros.

The context of my question is the following:
I'm building a site that can generate a customizable 3d model (using ShapeJS!). When the customer is satisfied with the model, the site will upload it to shapeways as a private model to my store. There the customer can buy the model using a shapeways account.

Prior to uploading the model I'd like to display the price (in Euros and USD).

How can this be done? Or is there a preferred alternative approach?

Thanks!

Sietse.

Hi Team,

Hi, I had a look at the github for the C# code.

It has functions for logging in and verifying. (Even though they don't work very well but I modified them). So I think I got that at least.

But I don't see any functions for actually posting any model data? All the functions are GET functions.

What do I need to do to post model data in C sharp?

Do I need to post paramters such as token "oauth_signature" or should they be URL parameters such as:


https://api.shapeways.com/models/v1?oauth_consumer_key=85e3e b8e59f2060cdb6e19ab561&oauth_nonce=s1vzsx0pp
&oauth_signature=9Yk9aRxvpNjunM
&oauth_signature_method=HMACSHA1
&oauth_timestamp=139403
&oauth_token=be5b37605cd1a2ff61cc983f1&oauth_version =1.0a

Do I need to send all these parameters like a form? And if so what about the encoded json data itself? Does this have a parameter name too? I guess "file" and "filename". Even though in the information these are both in the same Json data.

( I presume I have to send some sort of auth_signiture otherewise how will it verify that this is the correct user?)

I am looking for anyone who has experience with the REST API and VB.NET. If you have any examples you can share, please share!


Kind regards,

Looking at the shop documentation, it seems to be mostly geared towards apps that create content and upload them to Shapeways. My question is, is there a way to get data from an existing shop? For instance, could I somehow retrieve a list of models in my shop, or retrieve the name, prices, photos, etc. of a given model that was uploaded using the standard interface on this website?

Hey guys,

In order to continue providing the best possible software tools and service, we are planning to deprecate and discontinue support for our SOAP API, and in the process, migrate existing SOAP applications to use our REST API.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:

If you have an active app that connects to the SOAP API framework, we highly recommend you transition it to the newer REST API.

We understand that re-working some of your application's code to interface with our newer API might take some time and wanted to provide an advance notice. We will be deprecating our SOAP functionality on Wed April 30, which is roughly 3 months from now.

In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, our API team will be providing help and assistance with getting your applications transitioned to our REST API. If you have any questions or concerns, please email the team at api@shapeways.com.

We appreciate your patience and your understanding as we move onwards and upwards at Shapeways.

Best,
Natalia

Is there a way to access price data without having an user log in?

I'm working on an application which needs shapeways pricing data to calculate how much an object will cost and I don't even have a browser to display my authentication_url.

The ugly way means faking a login of a fake user to get the price, but it's not something I'm willing to do.
Maybe the most important question is: Isn't there an API for non-end-user related activities?
Ideally I think, given an application key and secret, we should be able to access public data such as pricing.

Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance

How can I pass html description?
For example
		$data = array("fileName" => "$filename",
			"file" => rawurlencode(base64_encode($file)),
			"title" => "Test",
			"description" => htmlentities("<li>Testing HTML <a href=\"http://list.ly/list/8tK-android-games-that-support-xbox-360-controllerhere\">here</a> a list  that you can edit as well</li></ul>"),
...

Looks like JSON is dying along the way due to the html characters. How about changing this to be base64 encoded so we can pass it in?
The error is "A fatal error occurred during model fetch exception Exception : Invalid auth/bad request (got a 401, expected HTTP/1.1 20X or a redirect)"

I also tried urlencode but then the html shows up as urlencoded...

I'm not really sure why. I used the exact same code that I used to properly encode the image file as I did with the model (which I can successfully upload) except the response is

{u'reason': u'Unknown error', u'result': u'failure'}

I also noticed for models I can't upload binary stl files. They always seem to fail. Since images are always binary, I'm wondering if this is a similar issue
