    I've just uploaded a new model which, although it uploaded quite happily is not printable in any material. I have no idea why this should be as is just an enlagement of a previous model.

    Any one any ideas ? Or is this a Shapways glitch ? I've made it downloadable if anyone wants to check the stl .

    There is a similar report over in the General forum, seems to be a glitch or a server load problem,
    possibly it just takes looooonger for the uploads to fully materialize at the moment.

    Does it have a wall or something like that? .
    Enlarging makes a wall thinner en then possibly not printable.
    I had the same problem once.

    I moved to bugs as that shouldn't be happening. If it can't be printed it shouldn't be uploadable. Unless something has changed recently, SW software doesn't check wall thickness.

    Ah OK This is now showing as printable in my shop !

    I don't know whether Shapways has fixed it or it was some strange timing issue.

    Would have thought the matrieals checking was done when it was uploaded, but maybe not and its done later ?

    I don't know but a small patch was released earlier today that may have fixed it.
