Anyone else have the bad habit of publishing designs before they are all the way worked out? I need to stop that. I modified an owl design to be a container with a removable head. The head did not even turn out to fit. I guess I was over-tired but this is not the first time I id this. hahaha
For the stuff I give away for free, …all the time. lol
For the stuff I sell, I test carve first and then fix any issues that come up and then test carve again until I am satisfied.
This is why I wish that the design sharing sites were able to work with Git, so that when I commit a new version of my design and push it, it automatically also shows up on the sharing site with the latest improvements.
Yeah. Or it would be nice if they replaced the old file and kept the counts. Divided into current version and previous versions would be better for a count listing though. Keeping all versions might be a bit much. I guess our current option is to add a date or version number to the name of the file we upload which is kinda lame.
I’ve got my printer design on GitHub directly. It has an STL viewer built-in, so I don’t think there’s too much of a problem… But the search for 3d models in GitHub is impossible.
I think there’s a place where you can submit ideas to printables, and this is definitely something I already sent in. The more people do it, the more likely it will happen.
I’ve sent that every place that I knew where to submit it, a while back. But… not sure whether printables was one of those places.
