    I have created a zip file containing a wrl and jpg for Full Color Sandstone (see appendix)
    After uploading I get this message (see below)
    What am I doing wrong?

    I use SketchUp 8 pro

    Hi Hans,
    Uh oh! Seems like your model needs a bit more love before our robots can work their magic.
    The 3D model Untitled you recently uploaded didn't pass all our automated checks, so it's not yet ready for 3D printing.
    Our tutorials and FAQ can be super helpful for more detailed information, or you can always ask the community a specific question on our forum
    If you're stuck or have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out at service@shapeways.com. Please include the file attached to the email, as well as any notes on your design, so we can help you solve your problem as quickly as possible.

    Hans, convert the mesh to a STL and put a link here. Least the gurus here can advise you better about mesh problems, if that is causing the errors.

    I have also tested with Rhinoceros 4.0 and Wings 3D and it works.
    With Skechtup 8 Pro will not do it.

    Do I have the right settings (see appendix)

    I'm getting 'Unsupported compression method' with 7-Zip for the zip file, perhaps Shapeways system is getting the same and chucking out a non-specific error?

    Have you checked it in Netfabb?

    Which extension should I save it in Sketchup 8.0?

    WRL and DEA are not recognized in Netfabb basic studio 4.4
