|Searching on Key Words [message #56108] Sun, 28 October 2012 15:05 UTC
I've built up a wonderful collection of Shapeways spaceships in the past year - something I've wanted for almost 60 years.|
Unfortunately, it's very hard to tell just how many there are to choose from on the website. I did a quick "study" a couple of weeks ago, using all the relevant key words I could think of. The table below shows what I found. The numbers represent the products tagged with those key words.
spaceship 392 starship 496
space ship 99 star ship 12
space ships 47 stars ships 3
spaceships 53 starships 205
You can also find models identified as "ufo" (62), "ufos" (55), "Martian," "Jovian," and probably more I haven't discovered yet.
It's kind of fun to search and I'm really not complaining, but would Shapeways and its designers sell more products if these were all labelled as simply "spaceship"? This "standardization" concept might apply to other product categories like airplanes.
Just a thought.
