Printables set files shown in previews

Hello friends (i hope we are friends. :)) ),

every time i upload a model to my printables profile, i asked myself: How can i set the files shown in the preview slides. With preview slides i mean the thumbnail pictures shown below the main image. (see attached image)

Is there any way to set the thumbnails shown there? I mean, its ok to see the thumbnails of my uploaded images, but it is not nice to see some randomly choosen thumbnail from my model files. In my example there is a thumbnail shown from a "distance part", which is to most unusable thumbnail from my model. 😀 

Best Answer by JP Guitars:

It takes the top model file, you can reorder them using the drag icon. Just tested on one of my models

RE:

When you upload images then in the Photos section you are presented with the list of thumbnails.
When you move mouse over one there is a gray box popping up with a text 'set as cover' - if you click that then this thumbnail will be the first as the main image on the printables.

 

You can also do this with existing entry by editing it now.

See my GitHub and printables.com for some 3d stuff that you may like.

Yes, you are right, but i don‘t want to set the first image, i want to set the thumbnail for the model to be shown in the selection or set that there should not be shown a thumbnail for the model.

Currently, a thumbnail of the distance part is shown (the ring in my attached image) in the thumbnail collection. How can i remove that thumbnail?

You are right! I reordered my model files now another file is shown, as you wrote, the top model file.

It would be nice to have a possibility to disable showing model files in the thumbnails

Thank you very much!
