Changing your preferred Ponoko fabrication location

Yesterday, when I posted Sketchbook B: The Bookcase, I mentioned that the one problem that I had was not being able to select Ponoko’s US hub in San Francisco. 

Well, it turns out that I just missed a setting. When you set up an account, you can select your preferred fabrication location. (I signed up before the US hub went live. I guessing if you open an account today, you’ll be given that option right up front.) So to get my job to go to San Francisco instead, all I had to do was go to My Account and under Preferences, select “the United States.”

 To select your fabrication location, just change the setting in your account.

So my only minor issue with Ponoko was, in fact, very easily correctable. A great service and definitely worth trying out…
