Oh my......

 

And I tried to check it out. There is a file with a .skp extension that tried to open a webpage and that is really not cool.

.SKP is a normal sketchup file.

I know. But when I tried to import into 3DSMAX to see if it was a real 3D file and not just some crap, it tried to open a webpage. The antivirus stopped it.

You can find dozens of files for revolvers and revolvers parts on Thingiverse.

That's one of the scary side of this technology, even more so for people like me who live in countries where you don't see guns on the street worn by Joe Bob like a fashion accessory...

Hi everyone! 
First of all, thanks to everyone who feels a level of responsibility to alert the YouMagine team when spam emerges on the platform. I know as a community manager that such commitment and help from its userbase is really helpful and appreciated. During Easter someone felt it necessary to upload files to print your own firearms, and this is not something the YouMagine team supports to share, so thanks again for putting this on the radar. 

 

But even though Ultimaker hosts this 'Youmagine-spam' thread, Youmagine and Ultimaker are - and should be considered as - 2 different entities. Feel free to share your reports here, after all we are an open forum, but don't expect Ultimaker to act upon it. 

If you want to be sure your report falls in the right hands; send an email with your findings to hello@youmagine.com and they will take it from there. 

 

More updates about where YouMagine is headed will be shared on their blog in the near future. Thanks!

just quoting this :)

@SandervG is there any update on this? frankly , Youmagine is quite slow, doesnt always download correctly, and the spam is just growing.. while i understand that from an organizational structure Youmagine is different then Ultimaker, for us, dumb users, it's the same. could you lift a small portion of the cloak to hint in which direction it's going?

I would if I could. I know Erik wants to take this up and it's also up to him to give actions on these intentions. If you want to know more, I would recommend sending an email to hello@youmagine.com  asking for some prospects or updates. I don't know much more right now than that the 'ball is in his court', so to speak. Last thing I heard, he was working on a blog update on youmagine with more news and updates.

When I do know more, I'll certainly let everyone know via this thread.
