    Don't know if i'm the only one, but i'm really having a hard time getting started with making full color prints using SolidWorks :/
    I could get it to work when i only use "flat" colors, but i really can't see how i can get it to work using images as textures.

    I have this model:
    Shapeways: Minecraft - Baby-Pig Earrings
    [​IMG]

    But I wanted to try to make one with textures, so i got the texture split up to multiple texture images, resized and have gotten the textures on the model in SolidWorks:
    [​IMG]

    But... I really can't figure out how to save the model so it will work with shapeways full color print :(
    Can someone help me? xD

    If all else fails, you could try exporting your model as stl, read it into meshlab and try to affix your textures there, then save
    as x3d and zip it together with the texture image for uploading.
