The Developer Portal includes instructions on how to develop apps for Thingiverse, how to submit apps to MakerBot, and a new sandbox that allows developers to test their apps. The Developer Portal also outlines developer guidelines and lets developers manage their apps and view analytics such as app usage, views, download numbers, and payments.

Updating thing description / summary returns "null"

by Chrismettal


currently writing an automatic project deployment script, but getting hold up on the thing description patching.

I am able to upload most of the data specified in the API reference (name, license, category, is_wip and tags) as well as upload and delete files of all kinds, but uploading the description does not work, as the description always gets set to "null" after patching.

I am using the following params block for patching. All types are strings except "is_wip" which is bool, as defined in the API reference.

params = {
"name": thingdata["name"],
"license": thingdata["license"],
"category": thingdata["category"],
"description": thingdata["description"],
"is_wip": thingdata["is_wip"],
"tags": thingdata["tags"]

thingdata["description"] is meant to hold a markdown string, but for now I am just using the string "Autodeploy" for testing, which still isn't accepted, so my description will be "null" again.

Did the implementation of the description object change and is not just a bare string, or are there new, undocumented API objects for the new summary blocks etc. that I need to write instead?

REST API: how to upload and update a Thing to my own profile

by smurfx

I'd like to upload and update projects on my profile, using a custom code that could do this via REST API.

I created an app on Thingiverse and I got a client id, a client secret and an access token.

Using access token I can browse projects without problems but I can't understand the syntax for update my own projects.

In this API reference https://www.thingiverse.com/developers/rest-api-reference I can't see how to use client id and/or client secret.

Is there some example on how to use the REST calls?
