    Hello all,

    what are the best measurements for your shop not being flooded by the API through an application?

    I think about writing an application that creates custom 3D models for printing. The models users are creating should be uploaded to and sold in my Shapeways shop. But what if a user generates and uploads 1000 3D models?

    Any experience with this kind of service?

    Hi Em,

    You toch a sensitive subject there : we have no upload-abuse measures in place yet.
    It won't flood a shop however, a long processing queue will grow, that's all.
    We'll add upload-abuse measures someday of course.
