Are multiple ImageTextures supported?

    I'm attempting to create a simple cube with different ImageTextures on the top/bottom faces than on the sides. As a crude approximation, I've made a solid out of 3 boxes, each of which protudes slightly along one axis. If I apply one of my ImageTextures to one of these boxes and use simple colors for the other two boxes (as in the attached union.x3d file), the result appears correct in the Shapeways animated viewer. However, when I attempt to apply the desired ImageTextures (as in the attached union3.x3d file), the result is displayed in the Shaeways animated viewer with just one of the ImageTextures. I can't tell whether this is just a bug in the viewer, or whether the printed model (using full-color sandstone) will also be incorrect. Am I doing something wrong? Are multiple ImageTextures supported?

    Thanks for your rapid response to my query.

    Sorry if I screwed up the .zip file; I've remade it and attached it to this message. It should contain three attempts at creation of my cube:

    union.x3d - 3 interlocking boxes (1 with TextureImage, 2 just colored)
    union3.x3d - same, but with TextureImages for all 3 boxes
    faces.x3d - 6 single-face IndexedFaceSets, with a TextureImage for each face

    The images should be there, also:

    treebark.png – 66 x 65 pixels
    treebark2.png – 65 x 66 pixels
    treetop.png – 65 x 65 pixels

    I should not be encroaching on the 2048 x 2048 pixel limit.

    Still no go with the zip file for me, it still contains one file - tree with no file extension, the file is bigger this time though :(

    Huh. I have no idea what might be wrong with the .zip file. It was created by Windows 7's "Send to -> Compressed folder" feature, and opens fine in WinZip 15.0. I will attach the files individually here, but since Shapeways limits attachments to 3 files (Could that be the problem? The .zip contains 6 files?) I'll attach the three .x3d files here and send the three image files in a separate reply. (Eh? I thought the file limit was 3 per message, but this interface now says 1 file per message... so I'll send 'em one at a time. Look for the following files:
    faces.x3d, union.x3d, union3.x3d, treebark.png, treebark2.png, treetop.png)

    You should now have all the pieces.

    faces.x3d, union.x3d, treebark.png, treetop.png are attached to your posts, union3.x3d & treebark2.png aren't :(

    Anyhow, opening union.x3d in wordpad still shows no definition for the 'box' and trying to open the file in MeshLab results in and 'Invalid xml file'
