i have suggested this a few times... sadly its not in 3dhubs favour to make it simple for hubs so it has not been implemented and i bet it will never be so
even thou 3dhubs have gone in a more professional direction they have not given it as an option
as a business i would bill customers in material and hours, just like any other business would
their excuse is that it would require an slicer and that everybody has different settings, but they allready use an slicer to figure if a print can be done or not. they could use the same slicer to give their estimate on print time and i could simple figure how many % wrong they are and factor that in when i set my hour rate
go to add printer and type: Other Cartesian
of course now they use a cloud slicer and that one can tell how long it thinks it takes
even if this is not correct we as hubs can quickly figure out the relative difference and adjust our hour price after that
for this to work they have to use a cloudslicer and you must upload slicer config... that will of course open up for times to be calculated. but on the other hand you have to use one of the slicers they choose to do time calc on
and what if your printers firmware is set to work slower than the slicer
so ultimately i think they have to do it by uploading firmware as that will ultimately tell how fast you can print
We’ll be releasing support for urgent orders in the coming months
"We’ll be releasing support for urgent orders in the coming months"
think this one should be closed and not planned... the comments speaks for themselfes
what a strange one... as Michael the option is allready there
you just add a charge as you would with extra post processing work... instead of say painting the object you just enter urgent order and what you charge
This is a great idea, as a matter of fact we built it a while back but the performance of the discount codes didn’t scale at all, with 9000+ printers on the platform that is pretty crucial so we’ll be revamping the discount system so we can once again have Hubs offer discounts to customers. Stay tuned.
well there is a box where customer can input the discount code
and it should not require rocketsience to make an automated system where hubs can generate codes themselfes.
if this is no longer planned at least say so and close the idea
4 years and nothing to show for it i would say its have been put in the bin a long time ago
just got an email from them, in normal people words it said "we dont care as it works for a few hubs and we want to get rid of the small hubs"
i can only suggest that we continue to send them emails at email@example.com
tell them why this is bad
in Denmark you will be denied the VAT number if the turnover is not above 50000
i too can provide an invoice as long i dont mention VAT on it, if customers ask about VAT i will simply reply that i have not charged VAT
i got a reply from 3D hubs that they did this to deal with "legit" business's
Sure there are other ways to proove that you are legit other than having good stats and a VAT number
ask them for it as soon you see that they have chosen GLS
i also use GLS and phone number is normally displayed when you click "more" under the customer
the only thing i ask them is their email and what parcel shop they want to pickup from
one way could be that 3dhubs fix the way they nessure distance
right now they messure in direct line from customer to hub and not by driven distance
and then its just up to the customer to pick either recommended or closest
and i would not blame 3dhubs for setting recommended as default so that the hubs that work hard for a better rating etc get shown first
there are no "out of hours" on 3d hubs
you will have to take the printer off line during the weekend
nice idea but you have to pitch makerbot the idea as its them who have to add the botton
and i think you best sell the idea as a general botton that just move people to 3dhubs and let them select the hub they want
i use an app to block sms sound from 10pm to 10am
solves the problem :-D
and posting as Anonymous does not help things, got anything to hide?
its not a mistake...
if the hub is deleted it will say that
same for hubs if the customer is deleted it will say the same
a hub can be deleted if its in the bottom 10% or so for to long
a customer can be deleted if they are just spamming hubs
and if either hub or customer breaks the rules of 3d hub they can also be deleted
i would say the same her, i only offer signed parcels and pickup
at pickup it should not take the customer more than 5 mins to tick that they got it and that the quality is ok... but to be fair 24 hours as a max would be in order
for delivered order much the same could be the case, ie 24 hours from when the customer signs for the parcel
the 3 day from signed to payout is hard to do anything about since that is how banks work, but i can live with that
hmmm then all customers would pick the option to make sure they get done first
"So this limitation could apply only to new hubs or hubs with less that X completed orders"
I hope you mean new customers?
But yes i will give this my vote too,
