Anyone else a member of 3DHubs?
A few months ago, they apparently made a change. Prior to that, I was receiving orders every week, and the "Views" number went up by about 1000 every 3-4 weeks. Since then, the "Views" function is broken, and I have only received an order from a previous customer. I contacted them and got a weak reply that they "were working on it".
I am now told that they totally changed their plan, by directing almost all business to about 40 hubs. IS this for real? (And, of course, nobody there bothered to tell me.)

The funny thing is that I do not belong to hubs to try to build a business, I just enjoy the challenges presented to me by the often weird designs and requests. Now that it is gone, I guess I will have to amuse myself more. (Amazing that I finished this without even calling them any names!)

I'm a hub member and notice the same thing. It's almost a worthless venture.

I am also on MakeXYZ, but have only received 1-2 orders. I had had several people send pictures of a device asking if I could make it. I always asked if they had an STL file, and said if not, it would cost about $100 to create one. I never heard back from any of them.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a reputable service?
