  1. Optional Payment for the hub after a month

    It would be better for hubs to have the option to select whether they want to get paid for each order or have a montly payment (up to the orders they had each month). That's because every time 3dhubs make the payment there is a fee from the hub's bank for the transaction. For example in Greece this is 3€ and it is not up to the amount, it is a fixed fee...so it is better to make one transaction each month rather than 4-5 whatever is the number of orders each month.

    • Make a link to previous orders by the same customer.

      Often I have the same customer returning. It would be nice to be able to automatically find his or her previous orders. Very often they refer to a previous fact, and then it is tiresome to look thru all orders or ask the customer what they meant.

      • Averange completion time for orders

        hi,

        we have now the 'Response time' indicator....how wold be if there were also an 'Averange completion time for orders' indicator. So can the Clients see how fast does the Hub complete the orders. I have set the completion time 7Days to have safety margins (defects of the printer or no material or lack of time etc) but normally I ship the parts in 2-3 days.... I'm sure that lot of hubs are doing the same way

        • Add individual picture for mobile picture on the hub

          It would be great if it was possible to choose a specific picture for the mobile picture, since the cover picture and mobile picture don't have the same format.

            • Make order widget compatible with Adobe Portfolio

              Adobe Portfolio is a new service which creates simple but efficients websites, potentially used by at least all the Adobe users.

                • Cache model data

                  Customers could order in much less time, as they wouldn't need to upload an .stl file or wait for the calculations.

                  This seems to already be the case for Thingiverse, and could certainly also be done for files users uploaded directly on 3dhubs.com.

                  This could ideally be combined with allowing users to store models with their profile*.

                  • Store uploaded models with user profile

                    Uploading the same models again (and again) is is slow and tedious.
                    It would make make me very happy if my models would persist with my user profile.

                    • ShipStation Integration

                      Integrate with shipping management tool ShipStation (http://www.shipstation.com/)

                      Currently this is one of our most time consuming tasks for processing orders: manually entering shipping information into ShipStation.

                      We process ~20 3D Hubs orders per week, so having a customers shipping address and order value information automatically pulled into ShipStation would be a huge timesaver for us.

                      It would also ensure that shipping information does not get entered incorrectly.

                      Having the 3D Hubs order status automatically change from Ready for Shipping to Shipped would be very nice too.

                        • Allow hub to split up orders

                          If customer add a lot of parts and then ask for colors it could be nice to be able to split up the order and set color and infill

                          infill is always 20% and in some cases the customer wants less or more

                          this creates the need to calculate stuff instead of just changing the infill %

                          • make it possible for hubs to add time spent as a part of the cost

                            Should not be that hard. ask the hub to upload their firmware profile and the backend can figure how long it will take.

                            of course you can make it very much so complicated that it looks impossible :-D

                                • Order list should not open empty

                                  I assume most of people have less than 10 orders in total. For such users order list should show all their orders (not filtered using order status). It took me some while to figure our why my order list is empty despite of the fact I had order which I considered active...

                                    • Add the ability to offer a Timelapse of the print and get sell it

                                      Most of the Hubs know about Octoprint and can record timelapse videos for their own use, because it's fun :)

                                      I suggest we can offer the timelapse video as an option (paid or free) during the print review.

                                      • 3DHubs should NOT exclude hubs where the model can fit in diagonale

                                        A friend of mine asked me to print something for him and I uploaded his model to 3DHubs to get an estimate/price from my own Hub, but then I figured out that my Hub wasn't listed. Even if I already checked that the object perfectly fits on my build plate in diagonale with a 10mm raft using Cura.

                                        I would like 3DHubs to change the way they select Hubs based on build plate width and height only (based on their printers database)

                                        Some objects can fit on the build plate in diagonale and can be perfectly printed. This is causing…

                                          You have a great widget for letting customers order 3D prints directly from my website. I would love if you could implement some more formatting features for the order button, for example:
                                          - roundness of buttom corners
                                          - exact color (choose by entering HEX code?)
                                          And
                                          - allow us to easily show the hub revies on our own websites (RSS?)
