Shapeways Sitemap Redesign
Navigation is an important aspect of an application's usability. It represents the hierarchy of an application as multiple top-level categories, with a handful of pages under each category. In this project, I chose to look into Shapeways navigation system to help to improve it's current structure by learning user's interaction with each elements on the interface.

Problems With Existing Navigation System
- Confusing wording for new users
- Repetitive content
- Indirect access to some most important feature
- Users have multiple purpose on the website, ie., users trying to print model, buy models, designers looking for customers, etc. Yet information for each user group is not clearly separated from other.
- Information is scattered
