    Hello,

    I have a question about the Shapeways Add-in for Solidworks. I've installed this add-in, and now I'm able to log in to Shapeways. When I upload a file to Shapeways I can see some things happening (model OK, cleanup, done), but I don't get the usual mail that a model is uploaded followed by a mail that my model is available.

    I'm using the Student version of SolidWorks.

    Am I doing something wrong or missing something?

    Thanks!
    Ed

    I haven't used that 'add-in' for solidworks (student version could be your problem). But all you need to do to upload a model is to click save as and pick .stl and choose binary. Then use the uploader on the shapeways site to upload your .stl and choose which unit you used.
