    Super excited to see our Shop Owners with their products!

    Cool, but what happens when a previously printed model gets featured and then subsequently rejected due to demand and your production partners flake under pressure, or even just plain flat refuse to print the model because the rules have changed?

    Please sort out these kind of issues before promoting stuff… it is seriously not worth the hassle.

      Hi Paul,

      That is an unfortunate experience to hear please email and we will troubleshoot! Thank you for the feedback!

      Best Regards,

      no need to troubleshoot anything, as far as I am concerend if Shapeways choose not to update materail rules inline with what produxtion partners say, then I am prepared to wait or use another service that delivers what they say then can deliver

      Why does Shapeways not respond to these concerns on the forums?

      Many people have raised issues about changing design rules (unannounced) and rejection of previously printed models – but there is never an official response.

      Hell, +50.

      Btw the most interesting thing about this post is the (very cute) animal. What is it?

      We have 24K+ people that like the Shapeways page that will also judge, and at least be mostly unbiased.

      That would be an Opposum.

      If 24k people express an opinion then you may be correct – will you publish the numbers that actually vote?

      Opossums are VERY cute…

      Hi d3sssy,

      You are right, this is NOT a design contest, this is a stimulus to share designs and therefore success is measured by the number of people who share and in turn the number of people who are exposed to your designs that engage.

      If you would like to see a design contest let us know what you think a suitable challenge could be, whether it is mechanical, technical or aesthetic?

      Thanks for your feedback.
