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 service@shapeways.com 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!

Best,
Natalia

Hi, I'm trying to update my model ( http://www.shapeways.com/model/445794/ ) but it seems to do nothing after I've uploaded the new model. I'm sure I remember doing it before, has anything changed?

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.

Cheers,
Paul

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.

Please add support for the Color specification.

I'm having some problems with Shapeways website.
It loads randomly at distance of minutes.
Some times it's slow, some times it loads parts of the site, no images or no css etc.

I can't track down if the problem is due to the tornado still, or it's my ISP playing with DNS.

My connection should be ok though, because I can load other websites without problems.

BTW I'm in Italy.

When I try and use the 2D to 3D Creator using this link: http://www.shapeways.com/creator/2d_to_3d/ I am sent to the below page:

http://www.shapeways.com/creators/jpg2stl/process.php

There is no text on this page. I receive no email later. Nothing shows up in my Gallery.
I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. I have tried in Chrome Version 22.0.1229.94 m and IE 9 Version 9.0.8112.16421 Version 9.0.10 and Firefox Version 14.0.1 and 16.0.1.

I believe this is the same issue experienced in this thread: http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=11260& amp;start=0&

I hope this helps.

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 try to add 27 or so tags to my model, only the first 10 gets added, then I can only add 3 tags at a time, otherwise none of the rest are saving. I have to refresh the page to continue adding in sets of 3. Sometimes only 2 tags are saved. Sometimes just 1.

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.

I've tried several browsers and it happens in them all.

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.

It needs to be fixed, or needs instructions/error messages added.

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

index.php?t=getfile&id=19088&private=0

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.

Cheers,

It just struck me that the first thing new visitors to Shapeways see is this;

index.php?t=getfile&id=18203&private=0

Create, share, upload, discover - where's purchase?

Also, looking at it from another angle - perhaps 'Discover' could also have links to what Shapeways is all about?

So I just uploaded a video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=et34sow7kW0 however the URL I was trying to copy & paste into the product pages kept getting rejected as 'Not a YouTube Video'- I figured out why though, it was because I was trying to c&p the link from my YouTube video manager whilst signed in where the URL is formed as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=et34sow7kW0 (still a valid URL but not recognised by Shapeways website)

Anyhow, this is more as an FYI rather than bug report for others that may experience the same 'problem'.

Hi guys, we've released a small update today to the way images are handled on the site. Images that were previously stretched or skewed should be properly sized now and images that are much wider or skinnier than 'standard' image sizes have a small border placed around them. This is similar to movies being letterboxed when a widescreen version is shown on a smaller TV.

We're still working on a long term solution that will involve redesigning a few key pages to elegantly accomodate image sizes, but this should help.

There is currently one issue with this release that we're aware of:
1) The default forum avatar looks funky.

This should be resolved shortly.

One additional benefit of this release is that most public images are now loaded from a CDN, which should make most pages load a bit faster Smile

Let's say you're viewing all your models with the "Not For Sale" tab checked... Now you click on one of those models to go to its detail page... Done, now click your Back button in your browser and you should return to the page you were just on, right? Wrong. You get taken back to page One with ALL your models viewable again.

If you want to continue where you left off you now have to repeat the whole procedure...

Not a huge bug considering all that still needs to be addressed here, but worth mentioning anyway.

It appears that model page edits or markup page edits can yield strange values in the PRICE column of the downloaded CSV. I had made some changes to some models via their edit mode pages which resulted (in the subsequently downloaded CSV) in zeros or negative values for the prices. The negative PRICE values were the same as the correct MARKUP values, only negative. I then found the markup editor page via the forum (http://www.shapeways.com/myshop/markup) and made changes to some of my items while reordering all of them. Immediately afterward I downloaded the updated CSV which now shows ALL negative versions of the MARKUP values within the PRICING column. Still the MARKUP column is fine.

The same incorrect price values show when importing into both OpenOffice and Google Docs.

This seems to defeat the purpose of having a CSV for markup changes in the first place, as it's necessary to see Shapeways' prices in order to decide on a reasonable markup value.

Hello! I tried to comment on the post itself but it seems my boyfriend's laptop doesn't have cookies enabled or something.

Anyways, there is a typo on the recent blog post about how to get your product featured on Shapeways. An "l" is missing from the third word in the phrase "Display to Public"... So it actually says "Display to Pubic"! Thought I should try to let someone know so they can change it, haha.

Hi Everybody,

Quick question, besides using crazy glue or epoxy, are there any other good options for gluing together Frosted Ultra Detail parts? What about model cement from Testers (for styrene and ABS plastic kit models)? Or how about "welding" liquid styrene glues that can be applied with a syringe that basically melt parts together?

Also, has anyone had any luck with using primers on Frosted Ultra Detail parts? If so, what has worked without melting the material?

Thanks,

Hello,
on the model page there are those "steering buttons" which are RIGHT in the middle of the box, thus in the middle of the model.
I understand the "intuitive" concept, but nevertheless, those buttons should not cover 50% of your model view ... Rolling Eyes
My idea is, put those buttons elsewhere - a user who is doing 3D should be able to handle the model rotation from outside the box as well.
If not, well, those ones will never be 3D customers anyway ^^
Here an example, of what I mean: Nice steering bar , hehe ..^^

Hi, maybe its been requested before but here are some possible suggestions for improvement

when model upload set default model size to for example iches or millimeters which can be set in the user account. i know its just 1 click but i like automation

linking several models in your shop to a parent entity so that multipart designs in different materials can also be bought as 1 product in the shop, this way multipart or set products can be offered at a set price

autorendering a 30 frame animated gif of a rotating uploaded model. put it on a nice shapeways.com platter so ppl can easily put their designs in the spotlight by pushing to social media. make it reflect the material chosen.

the java plugin still causes hickups for me here and there. sometimes the plugin just needs a page refresh. sometimes the controls center on the plugin window. i fear not many shop visitors have the plugin, and call me lazy but i try to concentrate on the design not on the renders. in the end photos are much better though.

i used a firefox plugin a while back which lets you slide between photos on flickr, i think a similar environment to explore designs on keywords for shapeways would be nice. a virtual 3d shapeways gallery would be brilliant.

also consider people ordering a nice silver pendant, it would be nice to offer the customer a nice selection of cords. or say the designer orders 20 silver chains for a pendant, delivers them to their shapeways ´postbox´ and links them to a certain product in the shop. users could be charged per volume used for storage.

or, facilitate or support community bulk buys of such products. this will result in lower purchasing costs. this idea can apply to other categories like robotics where people design the chassis and parts, and the required components eg arduinos for a working design are delivered by shapeways. i know you could just link to an external site for these items to be ordered, but on the extra postage the buyer saves, shapeways maybe could make money, especially on bulk prices. and, most importantly, the designer can offer a more complete product for a better price.

I was thinking, a new theme is required for the outdoor environment.

I've only been on Shapeways a couple of months but I already have run into things like the Wall Thickness Lottery. I know that Shapeways contacts the buyer and cancels the order but it would be really nice if there was a way of the creator being able to contact the customer to tell them when the model has been fixed and such. Its very easy to lose an impulse purchase through not being able to tell people what's going on with your models. For that matter some form of limited shop blog would be awesome. Someplace you could post updates on what is being worked on or maybe polls for requests. It doesn't even have to be shapeways run, something like a webpage embedded in the store's face site that links to a Blog Spot blog or some such.

First off, thank you for implementing the 1M polygon limit. It's been great and has allowed me to fit many of my puzzles in to a single file for printing.
However, it's still not enough. Many puzzles I'd like to print have just over 1 million polygons, usually 1.2 to 1.5M polygons. This forces me to split the puzzle in two files, which is undesirable since it's confusing for my customers and it kills off the density discount. I usually stack my parts fairly efficiently and splitting them up does not increase the efficiency of my stacking, which is bad for you.

Can you perhaps consider adding some more server capacity? Or, as a different approach, what about having an option that very large models are added to the site without being checked (showing an appropriate disclaimer)? For me, it's a very rare occurrence that models are rejected or fixed during the initial checking. Furthermore, malformed models could still be spotted by the printer operators.

Hello,
You should indicate to the users of Blender 2.49 who prepare an WRL export with textures to mark well " TexFace " into the F5 pannel, otherwise the texture will not be recognized!
index.php?t=getfile&id=7085&private=0
They will be grateful to you for it!

Hi,

I just noticed that models have a different orientation in the default picture and the 3D applet. The applet apparently uses a rendering orientation with the z-axis pointing away from the screen. So a model that is positioned correctly in the default image and the thumbnails, will lay flat on it's back in the 3D viewer which makes my models look rather silly in 3D.
The same happens with the bounding box. A model that is 10 cm high and 1 cm wide is displayed as 1 cm high and with a depth of 10 cm. I think this could be confusing for customers. It would be great if this could be fixed.

Mark.

Would you please take a look on the material adding/removing selector.

Can you please sort the materials according to wall size and material.
(that should be a 5 minutes programing task)

You will certainly remark how straightforward the process of selecting the materials will be.

Added 22 items I uploaded from my private gallery to my cart. After I select Paypal US funds it goes to the next page and says my cart is empty. Using IE 7. Sounds like a redirection problem. Had a friend test it using Firefox, it worked for him just fine and took him to the Paypal Website. Will have till wait till I get home to make order. Just letting you know so you can look into it for compatibility/fix.

Quick Update:
Downloaded Firefox, gave it a spin, same issue. In this case it may be work place related like a firewall issue although I have payed with Paypal and credit card at many websites from work with no issues. Sorry for the confusion. Will try again when I get home.

Another Update:
Did a small test with only 3 items in cart, and it directed me to Paypal. However when I have all 22 items in my cart, I get the error when I click Order In US Funds, Paypal, it brings me back to a empty invoice page that says nothing is in my cart. So I guess I will have to order them in a couple orders rather than one.

Last Update:
Finally got it to work. Had to order it in two orders, 12 items in one, 10 items in the other. Went through just fine. Second order had to spend an extra $2.60 to meet the minimum but its cool, ordered a double to send to the caster as well as one for me.

Still not sure what the issue is/was.

Can't wait to get em!!!!!!!!!!!!
