3D Hubs Forum

Everyday we make changes and improvements to 3D Hubs website. If you have ideas for improvements or feature requests, this is the place to drop them. Get other people to vote up your ideas to accelerate the focus we give to it.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Integrate social media into hub account

    As a printer on 3D Hubs, I find it time consuming to post images of my prints to social media and then to 3D Hubs. My pictures on my hub are often out of date because it takes a large amount of effort to add pictures, caption them appropriately and do this continuously with social media. I would propose that 3D Hubs would provide some kind of integration that allows hub printers to connect to their social media accounts where customers can see the latest prints on a printer's social media.

    • Allow material change and order change on instant orders

      So I've had many instant orders where a user has chosen a material like ABS which isn't best for the job and upon talking with the client they are happy to change and pay any difference - but with instant orders this facility is removed? Please can it be restored so that the material/printer can be edited after the initial order?

      • Common Design Features Handbook

        I purchased "The 3D Printing Handbook" in hopes I would find what I just found under your "Common Design Features" section. PLEASE make a book in regards to "Common Design Features" as I am sure it will help many (including myself) for designing functional 3D Prints. If possible, including a general troubleshooting chapter with pictures would also help! Once available, please let me know as I will be the first to purchase this book! Thank you!

            • More customization for powertools.

              I would like to have more colour options in powertools or even custom colour picker option.

              • Make an option to set a filament/filament color out of stock.

                It would be great to select that a filament is out of stock or a specific color.The customer seeing that his filament/color it is out of stock can message the hub to ask when it will be back in stock.

                • Spelling mistake on Order request submitted

                  Here is the text of the email I received:

                  "Brandon will now check the printability of your files an will get back to you within 14 min on average. You will be asked to proceed with payment once your order request is accepted.

                  If you have any questions for Brandon, you can leave a message on the order page."

                  In the first sentence "an" should be replaced with "and"

                    • busy machines, offset time estimates, job scheduling, calendar

                      If somebody requests a print on a machine and I accept it, the earliest start date for any new request should be the day after the first order is completed.

                      If machines could be shown as "busy" in a calendar, clients could reserve the machines for future jobs, and offline periods could be scheduled publicly (for moves, holidays, and such).

                      The ability to embed this hypothetical calendar tool in other sites would be neat too.

                          • When submitting to 3D Hub, the system should keep my file info and request.

                            Your system should store my request so that I can shut down my web browser and be able to move on. Submitting a file in working hours then having to wait for 8 hours or more with my PC on is a bit much. Most systems take my order and store it, thanking me for my order. I don't really care when it is actioned but I am confident the system has my order. I can then shut down my web browser and my PC!

                              • Could you please do more publicity in Mexico

                                The are so many ways to get a 3d print job and this platform it is amazing.
                                However in Mexico is still not doing so well.
                                It is not even on the top searches at google if I look for 3d print places.
                                It would be nice for all of the hubs of my country to have much more marketing so that we could have more jobs done.
                                Thanks in advance.
                                (There is a competitor here in Mexico called 3Dlink which charges anually, your business model is so much better, that is why I propose this)

                                  Othen I overlook that a customer wants more than one of the same print. The quantity box is so small and in a low contrast that it is easy to overlook!
                                  Make it more noticeable and prevent these shameful and irritating situations!!

                                  • Change "Order Custom Parts" button to start an order with the Hub being viewed

                                    I have had people in the past go to my hub and instead of clicking the green "Get Quote" button, they click the red "Order Custom Parts" button at the top. It would be nice that whenever a customer is viewing my hub the "Order Custom Parts" button is either hidden or instead does the same thing as clicking the green "Get Quote" button.

                                      It would be nice to be able to sell a 3d design of mine on amazon.com or any other big retailer site, and have the customer be able to print through 3dhubs.com and choose a service that's appropriate for them.

                                        • add Tool Steel (maraging steel) material, to first list when you choosing material

                                          This material is very popular in industry. One of the most popular from DMLS materials. Automotive/injection molding/die casting/tooling. Fields uses only this material. So buyers who want to get this material after first upload they think that 3D Hub cannot provide it, because it is out of the list. But you can here is Hubs who can provide customers by this material.
