We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with one of the leading brands in the 3D printing world – 3DPrint.com!
In case you had missed their fantastic site:
“3DPrint.com is a news organization dedicated to bringing you up to date on all the latest news from the 3D Printing Industry. We pride ourselves on finding interesting and unique news stories through investigative reporting, and extensive interviews.”
The partnership means that the team at 3DPrint.com become co-owners of 3DShare as the brand continues to expand it’s portfolio. The 3DPrint team also run 3DPrintBoard.com, the leading community for discussion of all thing 3D printing in this world of breakneck speed innovation.
The community ethos of both platforms is why a partnership was a natural progression. Unlike other 3D file marketplaces, 3DShare looks to grow based on it’s community of users. By listening to the thoughts the designers, we hope to develop a symbiotic 3D printing community.
For those, who have never visited this site before, 3DShare allows users to share their designs, either for free or at the standard rate of 99c. By allowing users to share their files for free we can form a legitimate sharing community of original designs. In order to incentivise designers to build a community that makes files available to all at an affordable cost, there is also the option to share files at the price of 99c. This means that popular downloads have the potential to make the designers a lot of money for their hard work!
We also have a NSFW ‘Anything Goes’ section which looks to enable the most creative uses for 3D printing without restriction. As you can see, imaginations are running wild already.
We couldn’t be happier to be teaming with Eddie, Brian and the team. Please join the conversation to let us know your thoughts, or how you’d like to see the platform develop to empower you as a user, or catch up with us on twitter, facebook or google+.
