Getting weekly download and views data

by edyvedy13

I am a Ph.D. student in management at Bocconi University in Italy.
By any chance, could I get weekly downloads and views statistics for designs? Currently, I can only access a snapshot of the data.
I will only use it for research purposes and will not disclose it to any other third party,
Best Regards,

Alexa Skill

by grantjames

I’m developing an Alexa skill to interface with the Thingiverse API.

To begin, I’m creating the functionality to ask Alexa to list the newest, popular or featured things. Not the most useful of features but it’s a start :-) Kind of like a way of checking to see if there’s anything new that interests you whilst you’re making dinner or something.

I just wanted to check whether using the API for voice devices is allowed. I’ve coded it with scalability in mind so rather than request the items from the API anew with each request, it instead performs the request once and hour and caches it.

For Zarquon's sake: Fix the Customizer - NOW!!!!

by ohuf

What is the thing with not being able to get that basic functionality running again?
Many developers/makers are depending on the Customizer.
Is it THAT HARD maintaining a decent and consistently working user experience????

For Zarquon's sake: FIX IT!! PLEASE!!!

and no, I'm not apologizing for losing it!

Customizer broken?

by frankvdh

When I try to open my latest design https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2786082 in Customizer, I get an error message:

"/usr/local/bin/openscad/openscad: error while loading shared libraries: libCGAL.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ".

Maybe the OpenSCAD behind the Customizer is out-of-date? My thing is designed for OpenSCAD v15.03-2 or later... it works fine on my desktop in that and the latest development snapshot of OpenSCAD.
