  1. Prevent instant order for object that dont fit with any one orientation

    several instant order have come through where the object when plated correctly for it idiosyncrasies or least support are way too big to fit the printer XY build envelope. Since the order is instant price, adjustments are not optimal.

    • Hubs Price range

      Price range for the different printing tech. I think is not correct that me and Other hubber have to work under the material cost to become competitive. The too much low-price penalize Hubs with professional machine that are the same person can Made prerfect 3d printing service. I think is incredible that 3dhubs.com don’t promote the professional service.

      • HUB Notes field to show up on order screen

        1: Add a text box on the customer order page for Hub Notes.

        2: Add a column on the orders page to show these hub notes between the customer name and status field.

        This would be useful for us to type in order specific notes and be readily available to read when viewing the order screen.

        This could be used for things like:
        ... 7 out of 10 completed
        ... low on gold filament
        ... customer likes filament brand XXX for order
        ... customer wants post production, etc.

        • Laser Cutting Hub

          Now that CNC has been added alongside the 3D printing it would be good to add a laser cutting hub.

          • Please change the new blue/purrple color scheme

            For me the new color scheme is annoying I suggest to change to the previous colors, or give the option to the user to change them.

            • Make Quantity more notable

              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!!

              • 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 My pictures on my hub are often out of date because it takes a large amount of effort to add pictures, caption them appropriately and do this continuously with social media.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 buyers to pay extra for priority printing

                    I would like to have a checkbox to see if any Hub is willing to offer a priority service.

                    The Hub could for example not nest other parts in the building box. So the buyer compensates the lower efficiency of the printer with an extra fee.

                    • 8 Days is too long time to wait for payment to clear.

                      Hi,
                      I got three orders in my pot pending customer to confirm they got the parts, after several times chasing them. The customer gets theirs parts printed and shipped in 48 hours. Why do I need to wait two weeks to get payment? Sometime it doesn't matter how many times we chase the customer some of them just don't confirm receipt. Can we reduce the wait time? I think it is not fair on us Hub owners. I offer signed for delivery so I can track the parts been delivered.

                          I can provide my own design of the shape. It used to be made of pottery, then aluminum with really bad tolerances. I want to make in carbon fiber. I can provide more detail.

                            Hello, I am a customer on 3D Hubs and have had a couple jobs printed on this awesome site. I'm also a film producer and am seeking a 3D printer that could appear in a film I'm producing in Chicago. I don't know if this forum is a great place to post about it - can you help me find where to post about this? Thank you! ben.gojer@gmail.com 817-994-9304

                            • Implement a print time detection and cutoff time

                              I keep getting orders at 10pm that are supposed to be shipped the next day. Not only that, they're large orders. I recommend you calculate the printing time and adjust the delivery date accordingly so I don't look bad for changing it. Also, if it is a short print, please add a cutoff time (like 7pm) where the order can't be shipped the next day.

                              • 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!

                                  • 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!
