Uploading to Blend Swap has pretty much stayed the same, but we have added a lot of improvements to the old form and some new features we know you'll love.
To upload a new blend do the following:
A cool feature we've added for the upload process is data loss prevention: If all your entered data is valid but one of the files fails to upload, say, because you submitted a .rar file (which is not allowed), the blend is created anyway, and saved, but you are taken to special file manager to retry your blend upload.
We have also added a cool management feature called Re-packer, it consists of a script that reads your files and packs them into a nice zip file with a license file in it, as many people have requested before.
When you upload a single "naked" .blend file it is compressed and packed for distribution, if you upload a .zip file we first unpack it, attach the license file and then re-pack it, while preserving all its internal structure.
You can take full advantage of the Re-packer with other file and folder setups we recommend you to use.
The repacker also has a number of formats it preserves and anything outside this array of formats is ignored. Please check out our file management page for more information on how the Re-packer works and the file formats it supports.
