Hi Shapies,

I was just browsing the jewelry rings products and discovered that a specific product was continuously featured in the headline of the shopping area (see attached screen dump). Does anyone know how that product got up there? Is it featured by Shapeways or is it a sponsored link like someone paying an add?

I know this comes up periodically but I can't stress how much I really want bulk upload and bulk editing tools for shop management.

I've been editing models and my time break down works a bit like this.

Took me a couple hours to set up a template.
about an hour to make 50 models
2 and a half hours to run them through Netfabb and fix errors
uploading them? 5 days and I'm half done.

this is really a barrier to effective shop management. instead of a roll out it results in a trickle out at best. And frankly most of the time I'd rather not upload stuff if I don't want to order it for myself. what's the point of taking the time to upload them? I've already told two or three other affiliates that bulk tools were a necessity. Ironically pinshape and amazon took me seriously on the phone.

NOTE: I've been told this can be done through the API. if it can then just make a tool already if the API is so darned effective.

To Whom it may concern,

I have a request I would like to explain and see if others also feel this would be a good option to add to the shop features.

I would like Shapeways to add a feature that allows assemblies of multiple parts, in different materials, to be seen as as a single shop entry with a buy it price.

Right now I am able to use the labs to create a "Add set to Cart" feature to the bottom of each item that forms an assembly, but this has 2 big drawbacks.

1. It does not allow me to share/market the complete assembly with a price for the complete set - this leads to people feeling mislead, seeing a lower price and then when they do add the complete set to cart, they see that have to pay a lot more for the complete set.

2. Many do not read the information correctly (yeah I know, but it's true) and don't realize that they have to click the "Add set to Cart" button at the bottom. When this happens, the customer either doesn't realize until the parts arrive and parts are missing, or the need to add a new order and pay for additional shipping.

This may only be an issue for me as my designs use multiple parts in different materials.

Best,

James.

It would make setting up rings so much easier if we had a duplicate model button in our models sections.

Everything in each ring size is exactly the same (other than possibly price in precious metals)

It would save hours of setup. I am holding off on uploading rings in hopes Shapeways will offer this.

I went to the Affiliate Summit conference in NYC this week to see what it was all about. I think Affiliate Marketing could help shop owners sell 3D Prints. Affiliates push traffic to your shop through blogs, banner ads on landing pages and websites. The Affiliate only gets paid if you actually sell a print. I am wondering what other people think of this idea? Below is a link to the biggest sponsor of the event and one of the largest Affiliate Marketing networks.

Since I'm very often give some critical comments I have also to transport a positive story.

Recently I had an issue with another printing provider:
- Case 1
- The customer claimed that something was missing and documented that via pics
- Other provider's service desk claimed that that was caused by a wrong (!!!!) 3d mesh
- So no refund and no reprint possible
Case 2
- Claim about printing quality documented via pictures
- So far no solution

To be honest the politic from Shapeways is more customer friendly and straight forward:
- the manual checks ensure that the customer gets printed what he sees
- although the rejections are painful for us designers and also for the buyer it ensures that
- if there's a misprint so far I never have heard that the customer does not get a refund (has myself the situation some days ago)
- if there is a design problem Shapeways disables the selling for this material and asks the designer for a correction

When I drag up or down in the rotating view, the axis of rotation comes out of the image plane. When that happens, the rotation changes from a convenience to a nuisance. It would be better to keep the rotation axis vertical in the image plane, or else allow the user to stop the rotation and turn the object every which way with the mouse.

Having so much 3D content, it's only a matter of time until the Shapeways store will establish presence in the virtual reality universe. With both Oculus and Sony making so much noise preparing to migrate everyone to VR, I can realistically see myself browsing the store on my PS6 for a new pair of hiking boots to print.

I'm wondering if there's already such a project in progress, and if not, then perhaps setting up an open source project repository would get some developers interested. Just a suggestion!

Thanks!

I've just opened my Shapeways shop and so far I've been making role-playing counters for Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop games.
Right now there are only 6 models (with another 6 soon to be available):

Berian Models

The categories that I chose for my role-playing counters are "Games" and "Miniatures". They seem fairly good, but I'm not totally satisfied, especially by the Miniatures category.

I noticed that dice (by "Made by Wombat" mainly) are a very popular item: I was wondering if there's any chance of adding a Role-Playing subcategory to Games, or maybe a Miniatures sub-category for counters and such.

Of course I realize there might not be enough role-playing/counter models on Shapeways to justify creating these categories!
Just asking :)

Hello,

Been wondering if anyone is doing dropshipping with Shapeways? Eg selling on Amazon or Ebay, and specifying the customer address as the shipping address?

As I understand from my reasearch, this is only possible if the billing and the shipping address is in the same country.
( this rule is due to the international rules Creditcard companies and Paypal use regarding VAT)

Also, one problem mentioned here ( https://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/726-expand-your-mark et-to-sites-such-as-etsy-and-ebay.html) is that the markup may be revealed to the customer. Perhaps this could be circumvented by ordering with an account that is not the creator/uploaded on shapeways.

Just tried adding my items on Amazon, but it requests a so called GTIN number that are very expensive. Does SW provide one perhaps? Smile

Can we request an exemption for 3d printed stuff from Amazon? What are your experiences?

PS I ended up buying a 1000 on ebay for 15 bucks. Legit and works Smile This gtin seems like a mafia charging exorbitant fees.

Hey guys,

As you probably know, we feature a designer every week on our homepage in the Designer Spotlight section and also an interview on the blog.

I'd love to feature more of your designs and I thought a short video would be a great way to showcase them! We'll be using these on the blog, and as category headers - like say for "Miniatures" or "Jewelry".

Here's my 30 second example that took five minutes to make:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJiCWUAFqJc&feature=youtu .be

Here's the foolproof plan to make your video:

Sit in front of your computer, set up your video, smile and press RECORD!
Introduce yourself and what you do
Show us your favorite design and tell us why you like it
Invite us to check it out in your shop!
Upload to YouTube and post it here

That's it. 30 seconds should do it, short and sweet!

Some tips:

You can use PhotoBooth on your Mac or Windows Movie Maker on your PC.

Sit in a quiet place so we can hear you - I chose to sit against a white wall, but you can show us your studio or office too!

Have your model ready to show and slowly show us

Smile!


Check out my video as an example, then submit your own here and await fame Smile


Can't wait to show off you and your designs!

Is there a reason this option isn't available yet?
I know there can be issues with generic designs (designers might not want their files to be pirated/proliferated) but there should be no problem for personalized co-creator files.
Anyway, I think Shapeways should offer this option before someone else does. Eventually this will be a huge market, comparable to the app market for cell phones Shocked Very Happy

now with most shops we want to get our name out in the world but when we say we use Shapeways as our printer for our designs we get questions about what it is. now i would love to have Shapeways produce a description card that we shop owners could use when demonstrating project ideas as well as have a shape way logo that we can use on or logos like "produced by Shapeways" or "Shapeways the future starts here" just some type of image that we can use to get people to visit our shop and also explain where we produce the 3d models from.

I've set up several of my models with the variants technique from the Shapeways labs to allow customers to buy single models or multiple on a sprue. As suggested I have made the variants invisible to the public but still available to buy.
EG http://www.shapeways.com/model/876944/1-200-lippisch-li-p-04 -108.html?li=productBox-search

I've added one of these to my cart and I notice that I get the message 'this model is no longer publicly available" displayed instead of any meaningful image of the model. If I was buying somebody else's model I would find this very off-putting.

Is there anyway to make the variants option more cart-friendly please?

Thanks,
Nick H.

I just received an SLS part from an engineering firm that is glass-filled nylon and I'm impressed: stiff, even finish, very functional, dye-able.
We also use Shapeways for 1-4 parts but you don't have quite the materials I can access at more traditional rapid-proto services.
So...offer the GF nylon and you get more of our prototyping quantities. Smile And cheap/functional/detailed parts are always a good combo.

Hi Shop Owners,

You may have seen this blog post today: http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/1735-3D-Printed-Refie f-Join-Us-in-Helping-the-Hurricane-Sandy-Relief-Efforts-This -Thursday.html

While our website was down last week, we had a few conversations via Twitter about donating their markups towards Hurricane Sandy relief. We love the idea, and decided that Shapeways will be donating part of our revenue on Thursday the 6th of November to the Red Cross. (Thanks
Michiel Cornelissen for starting the wave!)

We invite you to join us on Thursday by pledging to donate your markups for the day to Sandy relief. How you choose to donate is up to you.

We will supercharge your efforts: by tagging your products "Sandy Relief," not only will you be pledging to donate your markups, you will secure a spot on the Shapeways homepage as we'll be featuring those products from Thursday to Sunday.

Of course, participation is completely voluntary.

Any questions or comments, I'm happy to answer.

Best,
Natalia

Some of my models.....which have been printed many many times are now being rejected.

One of my regular customers just sent me this PM

I just got an e-mail from Shapeway saying that the 5/8 rod ends in 1/8 scale cannot be done in the material selected. I have ordered and received two or three orders of these rod ends in the past year and I love them, they're perfect. The e-mail said to contact you about this problem. Can you help because I'm stumped as to what to do. There must be a mistake.

I know the kit prints......the parts are in no way fragile, they are almost a solid block of material.......I have printed out similar parts that were half the size of these particular rodends (1/4" to be exact)......I know the mesh is clean it is generated by a high end CAD package which has always created a clean STL file......

I have hundreds of model kits listed on the Shapeways site......I really cannot afford the time running around and chasing these "phantom" problems.....

Is there any way we could flag certain models to tell Shapeways to print it no matter what their checking software tells them.....If there is a problem and the customer complains then the refund could be taken out of MY Acount, that way Shapeways does not have to eat the cost of a bad part??

Hi, I've been thinking about doing a crowdfunding campaign to fund my next robot hand design. I've run into the biggest hidden costs, which is the international shipping costs.

I originally thought that I could just send the rewards to the funders by putting their address in as the shipping address. Shapeways informed me though that the shipping address has to be in the same country as the billing address. So the UK is covered for me, but nothing else.

I then found out about the gift vouchers that shapeways offers. Now with this I can give the funders the amount that they pledged in a gift voucher. I would prefer it very much if the vouchers could only be redeemed at my shop, or on a single product. I know that someone who pledged is unlikely to change their mind at the last minute, but I'd prefer to know how much money I'll eventually have at the end of the campaign and not when the money comes back via shapeways.

So is there anyway to limit a voucher for only one shop or product?

Btw I know that I can get savings with WSF if the density is over 10%, however the cost per item saved does not make up for having to ship the items twice. It would also mean a lot of work at my end, that I'd rather pay a little to avoid.

On shop pages there is a "Send Message" hyperlink on the right side of the shop pages that a customer can use to send the shop owner an email. The problem is that this does not look like a hyperlink, so customers may not find it if they want to email a shop owner to find more about a product. This can result in lost sales.

This should be changed to look like the other hyperlinks on the shop pages. It should be changed to be blue in color like the other links. It should also change to have an underline when the mouse pointer is over it, as other links behave.

I think this should be a high priority change as it effects customer sales.

Best Regards

When I try to insert a degree symbol into model titles in edit mode, an error occurs and the product title disappears on the "my models" and public shop pages.

Could we please have a more linear image order? This includes the '3D View' and 'Shapeways Computer Generated Image' appearing before or after ALL the images. Not as it currently does after the first two. I feel items looks extremely cluttered on the page, especially if I upload several types of photos (i.e. Renders, prints & painted prints) which should be grouped together and they currently appear in a totally random order. I don't think the default image has to necessarily be the first in the row of images below the main photo. It should appear in the order it was uploaded... Or better yet, would you be able to allow the shop owner to customise the order in which the images appear?

Thanks! Smile

Hello shapeways creators.
For the time being, I'm not able to create a shapeways shop as paypal is not available in my country. Still, I'd like to hear advices from more experienced authors regarding the best ways of promoting their shops or products.

Thanks in advance
Aleksandar

I can't seem to update my favorites. I click on a new item, and it doesn't add it to my favorites.

Also, I deleted some items from my favorites and they still show up in the shop widget on my blog.

Any thing I can do to fix this?
