Sounds cool, but... what's 3D printing?
--------------------------------------
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to processes used to create a three-dimensional object in which layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. Objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced using digital model data from a 3D model or another electronic data source like STL files. Thus, unlike material removed from a stock in the conventional machining process, 3D printing builds a three-dimensional object from a computer-aided design (CAD) model or STL file by successively adding material layer by layer.

Incredible Update

I love the changes and I think this is a huge step in the right direction. The layout is user friendly and easy to navigate, and doesn’t crash! Also, i adore seeing updates based around what the community asks for and the fantastic developer responses. Here are a few nit-picky things I would like to see in the future: every couple models or so it makes you wait a few seconds which can just get annoying so fluent model showings, when I save a model even if i have just one folder it asks which folder i would like to save the model to and that gets deterring as well, and it is hard to tell if the app is for 3D printing and laser cutting or not as many of the models are just ideas or full on projects with electronics and things like that. Maybe different categories in the future?

Hey! We have just released a new version with all the missing features and bugs fixes. Would be great if you could to try it again!

Needs a few tweaks

I don’t have a Twitter, so my feedback is going here instead.

This is a great app that really needs a few upgrades. The biggest one that would help I think is a way to delete or unlike designs from the favorites list. I’ve got a few on mine that I accidentally swiped over. Another might be a way to mark on the favorites if the design has already been emailed or printed.

A way to search only for those designs which interest you would be great- I keep getting designs for fidget spinners that I have no interest in.

Finally, a way to communicate for those of us who don’t have Twitter would be helpful. Not everybody uses the same social media or wants their feedback posted for all to see.

Other than that, this is a great simple app. I have found many designs that I want to try for myself!

Good but seriously lacking UI sensibility

I just spent 20 mins swiping left and right on about 100 items and none of my right wipes saved. I then remembered this was the case from the last time I used it and now I'm upset. Swiping right should not do the same thing as swiping left...this is a common interaction model that you are breaking. Right swipes should be saved in a default list and allow for sorting later... Something I also can't do in this app is move an item from one list to another... What?

Sometimes my brain just wants to swipe and organize later... Keep the down swipe as is but make a right swipe for a quick save...

Your UI is gorgeous, but if you're gonna copy the tinder swipe model... Actually copy it so people know what they're doing intuitively. Fix your UX plz.
