Selectable File Formats

DigiFabster allows end users to update files in many different formats, including STL, STEP, OBJ, IGES, 3MF and more. But some shops only want files in certain formats. Say for example, you’re a machine shop and can’t use STL with your CNC equipment. We recently added a feature that allows you to deselect file formats you don’t want or can’t use. That way your end-users only have a choice to submit files that work with your equipment.

Discount Display

In order to help our customers improve conversion and get more orders, we’ve changed how we display discounting on the widget. Now, when an end-user becomes eligible for a batch or other discount, it is explicitly shown on the screen, before they add the item to their cart.

US Sales Tax Calculator

We’ve updated the way we calculate U.S. sales tax to make it even more reliable. Further, we’ve added a feature that allows our clients to turn it off when not needed. This can be helpful for companies whose customers are tax exempt.

Updated Order Status

We’ve added a new field to our order status that allows our customers to let their clients know when jobs are in post-production.

Verbiage Changes

With our recent expansion, supporting CNC machining and other technologies, we’ve updated the verbiage we use in our widget. End-users no longer see “3D printing” but instead see “manufacturing” as a catch-all term.

Feature Recognition for CNC: Taps and Drills

To further assist machine shops in accurately calculating their costs, we added a rich feature recognition for STEP files of cylindrical shape. You can charge customers for radial and coaxial taps or drills along with reductions. Each type of features can be assigned in the widget user interface.

PDF Drawings

Users can now add PDFs when they place their order. This allows them to include drawings and other renderings that provide additional data for estimating and production.

Fully Customizable Widget

We've further improved the functionality of the widget so that DigiFabster clients can further customize how it's displayed. With our improved customized style sheet (CSS), website administrators can now choose to hide or show any of the fields, dropdowns, text and other elements displayed on the screen.

Feel free to ping us if you want to make any changes in your widget.

Round Way Shipping

This new feature allows customers to offer two-way shipment (from and back to their facility.) When selected, the shipping cost is doubled, and a "round way" label is added in brackets at the end of the string.

Programming Cost for CNC

Administrators now have even more control over how CNC jobs are priced. This new set of tools allows them to add almost any rule to determine how startup costs are calculated. Further, we've added fields that allow CNC shops to determine programming costs to account for the time and expense associated with generating machine code for a given model.
