Improved 3D printing trends
I was very disapointed that the part about the color distribution is no longer a part of the quarterly trending report. It was the only information that I could use for planning how to stock my hub to meet customer demand. What I would like is for that part to come back and also getting information about distribution of material, layer height, printing technique and build volume. If it would be possible to make the information available on a local level (per country/region) it would be extremly helpful and allow for the hubs to understand the customer demand.

This is super insightful thank you for sharing.
The reason we took the colours out was that there were no significant changes, so we were mostly repeating the same graph monthly. For the interim I'd use the previous report: https://www.3dhubs.com/trends/q3-2016 as nothing has changed.
In terms of the other data points you've highlighted I'll speak with our development team and see if it's possible and if so how we can display the data.
