Not really a bug, but if you put a model in different shop sections, then there are empty line between them. These line are not there right after you add the sections, but they appear when you come back to the page later. If you add new sections, the old sections are still separated by an empty line and the new ones are not (until you come back later).

So many things to design, so little time...

The Netmining cookie you are setting from causes Internet Explorer (10) to warn me that "Only secure content is displayed" on every page, because the rest is https://.

Can you fix it so the cookie is set through https://?

Does the widget work? I was looking at the tutorial and see what I think is an error. The code listed is:

<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:182px; width:628px;" src=" /widget/include.php?shop=YOURSHOPNAME&shopcat=SHOPSECTIO NNAME&style=light "></iframe>

Doesn't the src value have to refer back to

I think this code works fine on the shapeways site, but nowhere else, Of course I don't pretend to understand HTML, although I have designed a couple simple websites.

And how do you enter a shop name that has spaces? Do you have to use "&20" to replace them. And is it case sensitive? And my shop name is "Dave's Model Railway Stuff" How about the apostrophe?

I can't get anything to work. If a tutorial doesn't help- that's a bug.

What I really want to do is to imbed the current customer price of particular models on my webpage. It doesn't look like the API does this.

Who wants to set defaults for every object they import?[ 3 vote(s) ]
1.Being able to customize my import options sounds great! 2 / 67%
2.Who cares. It's fine as it is. 1 / 33%

Oops. I now see the "Suggestions Forum" which seems like a better place for this post. Click this link to complete the poll there: 18#msg_76918

I would very much like it if I could set a variety of parameters for uploading an object just once, and then every object I import after that would default to those settings.
It's not that big a deal, but having to go and click 11 various radio buttons every time I bring in a new objects gets old and annoying, and stifles creativity.
- I want to upload all my objects in the Meters scale.
- So far I dont really ever want the ceramic materials, nor the sandstones, turn them off by default and I'll activate them in the rare cases.
- I would love it to auto price for me!
just adding X that I set to the price would be cool.
better for me, as I am a fan of whole numbers, would be if I could set up a list like
$1 - $5 = $7
$5 - $10 = $15
$10 - $20 = $25
$20 - $30 = $35
$30 - $40 = $50
$40 - $66 = $70
- Default Categories would be nice
- Being able to save various groups of tags which I could click 1 button and instantly add a bunch of metatags that are always gonna be grouped would be great!

Hook us up, please!

I uploaded a bunch of photos for a few models that are not for display but are for sale (to offer different ring sizes) but the photos seem to have disappeared. Do I need to reload them? Also, as I was testing out how some of this would work, it seems the permalink on some of these models changed. Under what circumstances would that happen?

When i go to the upload page the "Select 3d..." is partially blocked by the YouTube video.
I can click the edge of it and select my file.
Then the next page is blocked even more, I just guess that the button i want is the one under the video and click it.

When receiving an email notification of new messages to a subscribed thread, the link for unsubscribing seems not to work. I've tried hitting the link with and without being logged in, and with and without the browser (Firefox) running. Nothing seems to work, and I can't seem to find an Unsubscribe link or button on the thread's page.

When I open the "Edit Details" page, the description is there and easy to read. However, as soon as I click on it, it collapses to about 4 lines, and I have to scroll up and down to do any editing. I can drag it open again, but as soon as I flip to another tab and remove focus, it saves... and when I try to go back in, it collapses again. When you're adding the URLs of other similar items, this gets very, VERY old, very fast. Is this collapse happening for everyone, or am I a special snowflake and the only "victim"? Smile

I use SketchUp 8 and the instructions you give for uploading and installing the plug-in for it has an error. It comes in a zipped file. You say to not unzip it, but when you tell SketchUp to install the plug-in the window that opens up does not see the zipped file. You open it with compressed folder function and you still do not see it. I think you need to find out exactly how to do it and change your web site iinstructions. I cannot find a way and I tried several.

Hi all,

I got a request and was asked to post it here. Now I had some troubles with my models after ordering and because of it the order was cancelt. But then the order remains on you account only under the status of cancelt. Now if that happens mutliple times its easy to lose track of which are accurate. Since sometimes even when there cancelt they remain also on the status of "Pending".

Maybe a good idea for the near future.

I've come across a couple of issues with the 3D viewer. I've found that I need to use the 3D viewer to check my models, because the model as presented on the site doesn't always match the output from Netfabb Basic (where I do my final checks before uploading).

1. No zooming. When I need to check the model in detail, this gets difficult in the small area that the 3D viewer provides.

2. Autorotation. When you open the 3D viewer, the model automatically rotates. When I click and drag on the model to see a specific angle, the autorotation should stop. The model should stay at the angle I positioned it at.
Currently, as soon as I release the mouse button, the model starts rotating again. We need a pause button.

3. Rotation limits. I can't rotate up or down by more than 90 degrees. Combined with 2., that makes it difficult to be sure I've seen the model from all angles.

4. Rotation up/down. This movement is really coarse: there are only a few angles to choose from. It's also choppy: the angle lags behind my mouse movement, and then catches up by jumping to the new angle.
In contrast, rotating left/right works as it should: you can choose from many angles, and the angle closely follows the mouse.

I've seen this on 2 computers (Mac with Firefox, Windows 7 with Firefox and IE) so I don't think it's just me.

Hi Shapeways - first off, I love you guys!

One quick suggestion: when I'm browsing items created by other users it'd be really nice to be able to "favorite" them from the main page rather than having to click through to the detail page. That way I can browse a whole lot of things much more quickly and effectively bookmark the items I'd like to return to at a later date. Also, I can't seem to un-favorite items; intuitively I click on the "Added to Favorites" button but that just seems to take me to my favorites list.

Just in case I'm using the website incorrectly, my browser is Google Chrome Version 27.0.1453.94 m.

Keep up the great work!

I am once again unable to upload pictures.

Whatever I click on the browse button and click "open" (or whether after doing I click on the file name and click return), nothing happens. The previous time I tried, the latter at least worked (though it caused IE to recover the tab), but even that does now not work.

I have about twenty or thirty models to upload photos for and this is infuriating (especially since the problem doesn't appear to have been addressed, despite being reported nine months ago.)

I have now twice uploaded an earring file with two identical models of the same piece in the file. Each time Shapeways system is only showing ONE of the earrings and pricing everything accordingly. Bizarre. I have double checked the file in Netfabb and both models appear. I have notified Support but since it's the weekend I thought I might get some feedback here first.

Here lately I have had a great many projects that used to print very well, now are being rejected for bad guidelines, that were already corrected. Case in point. Last year I had a file that had some shell issues that got rejected. Those issues were corrected and the corrected file was then uploaded. The corrected project then printed very well in WSF material. Now someone just ordered it in FUD, and they rejected it for thin wall issues and sent me a complaint pic, showing the same ORIGINAL shell issues from last year that were already corrected.

Is anyone else having similar issues with ShapeWays here in the last couple of months?

I only have 52 models that are displayed to the public, but when I click on the "Shop Inventory" page, I get a message saying "Sorry, we didn't find any results. Please try searching again." All I want to do is change the default order my models are displayed in. I tried a workaround, updating the models with a new copy of the file, but that didn't work. I set up different categories, but the default is still to display all shop sections, and I'd like to put them in some kind of order without someone having to change to a different display order option.

When editing a model, the "Categories" and "Tags" are always visible. However, the "Shop Section" is only displayed, when the model is visible to ohter and for sale.

I like to have everything organized before I put a model up for sale. Can this be changed so that the "Shop Section" is always tehre?

Hi Guys,

Just to let you know, PayPal is experiencing issues at the moment and payments made to Shapeways (we use PayPal) are going through but your order does not show up in "My Order" right away.

Rest assured your order is going through, it's just a delay on the side of PayPal so no need to order twice. If you did order twice, please contact and we will refund you straight away.

PayPal is working to resolve the issue, as we are, so please bear with us it shouldn't be long!

The max allowed filesize for attachments to forum posts is 64MB - for some reason the max filesize I can send via PM is 977KB.

More and more recently, I find myself helping other people with their model files - for those model files that are 'broken' the only options for the client to send the file over are direct via email (if their email provider allows 'larger files') or by using a 3rd party service such as dropbox.

Please can the PM filesize allowance be upgraded so that decent sized files can be sent via PM.


p.s. Thanks for upgrading the amount of PMs that can be stored Smile

My VRML 2.0 files were being rejected at upload.

I determined that the Shapeways VRML reader did not like the Color array method for specifying part colors.

Hand editing the files to use a Material spec fixed the upload issue.

As a new ShapeWays customer and long-time Business Analyst, I have to voice my view to you regarding PayPal.

PayPal is a great tool for the very small business, entrepreneur, or housewife selling items out of the house. But, once a business begins to grow, PayPal is not the best choice for credit card payment fulfillment.

As has been documented many, many places online, PayPal can and has frozen users' accounts without having to provide a reason. Also, they do not have any appeals process in place; so, getting an account released takes weeks or even months if you are lucky. What would happen if one disgruntled customer calls PayPal and they get that one sympathetic customer service rep who decides to freeze ShapeWays' account? How long could you operate like this? What would happen to your customer base?

On top of this, PayPal's latest Terms and Conditions take away the users' right to sue them. Users are forced to use an arbitration process of PayPal's choosing.

PayPal's fees are outrageous. Enough said on that.

Last, but not least, PayPal is not a bank or financial institution, so they are not bound by any country's Laws, or Banking Rules & Regulations with regard to customer protection and rights. They are free to charge what they want and do what they want, without fear of any retribution.

Have your CEO or CFO stop by your local bank and inquire into setting up a merchant account to accept credit card payments online. Continue to accept PayPal along with your new ACH account and I think you will see the benefits right away. A huge benefit is that payments get deposited into your account within 24 hours and not after 7 to 10 days.

This post turned-out to be a lot longer than I anticipated, but I do feel really strongly about this. I stopped using PayPal years ago simple for the fees and their not having to follow any banking rules – it was just too risky, even for my personal use.

Please, offer your customers another option for credit card processing other than PayPal.

When I use your Product Variants Mod and click the link to add the product to the shopping cart, often, though not always, the next web page served is BLANK! (see attached image file) This is quite disconcerting, as one suspects something has gone wrong! The item is correctly added to the cart.

Before I can spend any more time browsing vendor offerings at this site I need to get the option to exclude any given vendor from my view. This exclusion list should be a part of my profile and I should be able to place a vendor on that list by right clicking on the vendor's name and marking it excluded (there might be other useful options available with such a right click.)

There are vendors that are creating very special purpose parts and their list of parts goes on for pages when browsing certain categories. There are also vendors who produce things of absolutely no interest to me and vendors who offer just plain junk. Until I have the ability to filter them out of my browsing results I will be absent and spending no money on any vendor. When I get one of the regular Shapeways emails saying that this feature has been implemented I'll be back.

There does not appear to be a way to add a profile picture. The "edit" button allows for file selection but then nothing is done with the selected file.

So, i have recently made a model using the Mineways program, and the file/model/whatever looks fine on my machine, but the preview seriousely is bogging up. e.html?key=b32f1dfd925e7bf95eb51e136b166454

How it is local:


Managed to make it function better, put still, i have problems... Now some parts of it are white, still looks normal here though.

I looked at the design rules page for large WSF models earlier today and wanted to go back to the page to check some dimensions and wall thicknesses - easy, just look in my history folder... D'oh! Here's what most of Shapeways pages look like in IE8.0 History


Please can Shapeways webpages have titles (i.e. title meta tag), not only is it easier for us mere mortals to find what we've already looked at, but search engines find this information useful too.

All the forum pages (threads or indices) are titled "Shapeways", no info at all.

While at it, Preview message is not decorated as button. Yesterdat Submit one wasn't either, but today it is in the post form. None of them are in the preview area.
Pages (106): [ «    5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12  13  14  15  16  17  18  19  20    »]
