Today, all colors for 3D printing materials were standardized to simplify the process for both our suppliers and customer. The original system allowed for free text input, which resulted in over 20,000 different color options to be added. From our data we saw that it is possible to bring this number down to around 30 and still cover 99% of the orders.
About the migration
The migration ran automatically and most of your colors should be now mapped to the new options. The only thing we’d like to ask you is to check if your colors are still listed correctly in your dashboard and to update them if necessary.
All currently running orders are unaffected by these changes.
