I’ve been using Shapr professionally on an almost daily basis for about 2 years now, I have so many designs, variations and client revisions that it’s come to a point where the software needs a proper way to manage files.
Folders, sub-folders, ways to sort files (alphabetically, by date). Compared to all the amazing tools, this seems rather simple, and yet crucial for us working professionals, it should be made a priority for your next update.
Hi Bruno, folders would be super important to have in Shapr3D indeed. It’s something that we do want to implement at some point of time. I’m wondering if we simply made searching easier, would that solve (at least partially) the problem for you?
Thanks for the quick reply Istvan, any improvement on how the app manages files would certainly help us. While a hobbyist may have a dozen files, professionals have hundreds. I cannot stress enough how important this upgrade is.
Hey Istvan. Do you have a roadmap for this implementation. I actually stopped using Shapr3d for a couple of year (despite loving the UI), because the lack of filing system was a real let down.
I started using Shapr again recently and surprised that it is still not a thing. Loads of great improvements have been made but it would be amazing to know that you guys have a timeline for this as it makes using it in a professional capacity really tricky.
It seems fairly standard on most apps now that they at least save too iCloud in the background. Although google drive would be amazing too.
Hey Istvan, thanks for responding! Folders are a must for me. It’s pretty crucial when working through large projects, with different iterations of things. We actually ended up 3D printing an old version of an equipment part because all the files show in one place. (Certainly our responsibility, but a filing system would have helped.
I totally agree that this is a very important feature. We keep receiving hundreds sometimes thousands of feature requests from our hundreds of thousands of users every month. We are trying to deliver as quickly a possible, but sometimes we need to reshuffle priorities. I do agree that we should implement it as soon as possible, but unfortunately it’s not just a few hours to implement.
I agree, to start it would be nice to be able to search your designs instead of scrolling for them. Another feature related to this the ability to download the assembly tree into numbers or excel to be able to create a bill of materials.
Wanted to follow up on this feature request, while folders and sub-folders would be ideal, being able to search for files or sort them would be a great start. How soon can we expect this to be implemented?
