File storage for designers on Shapeways ?

    With the "Draw it" contest, the contestants have to create a pdf file containing the design which the buyer can customize.
    That's a great idea, but why are you not giving a little storage space on your servers to allow the designers to upload their pdf templates ? :)
    The designer has to link to his server or an ad bloated file sharing server, which IMHO makes the whole thing looking unprofessional... :(

    We are planning to build this but we simply have not had time to do so since we came up with the "Draw it" idea. Hopefully we can get that done soon.

    I searched for a file sharing site which doesn't try to open 5 pop-ups, and doesn't have two misleading Wide Skycraper flash banners and two "Full banner" on the download page.
    Finally, I think Microsoft live SkyDrive is a good choice. :)

    The timeline right now says something along the lines of: "Some time after SIGGRAPH 2010"
    We're also anticipating PDFs to be used for assembly instructions and some other creative uses.
