Hi all,

As I mentionned during the latest podcast, I would like to see some new features for the co-creator templates.

First, I would like to be able to upload several models in one product page (say the different kinds of numbering of a same die) and when the customer choose one of it through a radio button or a drop-down menu, the appropriate model is ordered without me having to upload again this model (currently, I have nothing to design, since all the numbering are already done, I just have to upload the correct file). See this example. Could be useful also for ring sizes for instance.

And, something new, a slighly different request for Color Sandstone: if a co-creator only requires to upload an image, then appropriate zip file could be automatically generated by packing the VRML of the designer with the image from the customers (with a standard name like "image.jpg" for instance). See this example. 95% of Color Sandstone co-creator templates could work with this (if the customer is careful, obviously).

The goal of these two requests is to have some co-creators that work without any intervention from the designer (so no additional working day, and potentially a smaller markup since there is no additional time spent).

Is it something other designers would like to see? Is it doable?

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