    Hi Shapeways,

    Is your service available as webservice? Or do you have any plans in this direction?

    A webservice would enable applications to upload a model and order it directly from Shapeways, without as a designer having to go through the web interface.

    A very popular puzzle design tools is Burrtools.
    http://burrtools.sourceforge.net/
    This open source tool creates perfect STLs. An "Order from Shapeways" button would make it very easy for its users to get a sample of a design. And such a button would be good publicity for Shapeways. However, in order for this to become possible, Shapeways should be available as a webservice.

    What do you think?

    Best regards,

    Oskar
