Hi all,

In the home page, there is section called "printed models by our community" which contains the images of the latest models that have been uploaded.

Unfortunately, very often, these images are only computer generated, and do not imply that the model has ever been printed.

That's a pity because for someone who wants to purchase an object, knowing that it has already been printed (well, already sucessfully been printed) is very important.

I suggest adding a check box when uploading an image to specify whether the image is computer generated or a picture of the actual printed object. It should not been very complex to do and if everybdy is a little bit disciplined, it could work...

More generally, I think it would be valuable to add a tag (or something) specifying whether an object has already been sucessfully printed and can be ordered safely. But I understand that this can be more complex...

What do you think ?

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