    • Carbon fiber cord

      Hello,
      I am working on a jewelry project with very specifics constraints. My idea is to make an "indestructible" bracelet and I was looking, among other types of cords, at carbon fiber.
      My question is : would it be possible to 3D print carbon fiber in a string shape ?
      What I want is essentially a cord with 2 eye splices, one at each end, in order to attach my clasp/carabiner to both ends. Thank you !

        • Change minimum pricing when using many pricing components

          When adjusting the price for materials it is great that you can use many different components to set the price fairly. Although since every component has a minimum pricing, the cost steadily increases with more pricing components. Perhaps there could be a minimum pricing on each of the Marvins instead, I think that would enable a more fair pricing on parts without increasing the price too much.

          • Apply Pricing Plans to Printers Rather Than The Current Implementation

            Currently each printers have their own pricing plans. For hubs that have multiple printers that want consistent prices across multiple printers, this is a time consuming process that also has too much room for pricing errors across printers.

            My solution is that Hubs be able to create a pricing plan and then add printers to those plans rather than the current implementation. In other words, instead of a 1:1 implementation it'll be a 1:M relationship. This way there is only one form to fill out for pricing with little room for errors in creating a consistent pricing structure across printers…

            • Separate single file multi part models

              I've noticed more and more that customers are putting multiple parts in the same model file to avoid paying the multiple print charge. The reality is that some prints will print better when the parts are separated and will lead to less failed prints.

              • Add 3DHubs to Youtube approved merchandise sites

                Publish videos is a good way to leave informations and proofs about service quality.

                But right now, it's useless

                We have two options

                Link youtube channel to 3Dhubs profile (youtube advanced settings / linked website) and ad permanent link
                But it's impossible to add 3Dhubs profile

                Or, Add a specific link from a merchandise approved site, but you're not on the list : https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6083754?hl=en

                Please, Please, Please !!

                Just quickly add 3DHubs to the list > More views > More cliks > More orders > bigger 12.5 %

                Best regards

                • let me choose a location

                  I use a VPN and travel a lot, a simple setting to choose my location for finding hubs would let me actually use the damn service instead of finding printers hundreds of miles away.

                    • Is it possible to add videos to the profile of my printer?

                      The title says it all:

                      I have created several time-lapse videos of some printed pieces and I would like to show it in my profile.

                      • Allow for circular bed shape

                        As there are more and more delta style printer with a circular bed shape, it would be nice to list these printer as capable of printing a diameter of ...mm instead of a rectangular box.

                        For instance if a delta printer had a Ø400mm bed, it would be listed as 283x283mm (I guess), so if an user is asking for a volume based on a rectangle 380x115, it would be rejected.

                          • Make it possible to choose material/colour for each print when using the same Hub

                            Many times I would like to order several parts from the same Hub, and choose material/colour for each parts, so that the shipping price is paid for the whole deliverance. Now, I have to make several orders, and pay, the shipping, say 3-4 times, just because the Hub offers more options on material and colours. It doesn't make sense. For plastic parts, the weight is next to nothing.

                                    Since every printer works best at different speeds, adding an option of printing speed to the customer to choose is needed. Example: the service provider pays higher electricity rates to make the best quality of prints because they take more hours to be slowly printed, in some cases the customer doesn't want the best quality possible and he wants it fast hence less electricity is used but printing hours aren't calculated and added to the final bill nowadays.

                                      Would be nice to still be visible to customers when the printer is offline, so when they add their part and look through the hubs the offline hubs will be faded out and say things like (on holiday until xx/xx/xxx, printer undergoing routine maintenance, waiting for parts, waiting for filament) and just allow people to send and receive messages to and from the offline hub.

                                      • customizable profile page

                                        it would be nice to have the ability to adjust our profile page, what I mean by this is like a tile system where we can move the (reviews, pictures, about me) boxes around.

                                        I don't like this current format.
