Whether you’ve already embraced it or not, there can be no denying it - 3D printing is here to stay. In terms of tech advances and developments it’s way up there and we’re probably not even fully aware as yet of just how much of an impact it’s going to have for many of us. From independent jewellery makers and designers through to medical professionals - we’ll all be using it.
Of course we’re talking here like it’s the future, which it isn’t - 3D printing is already here and in more and more places all the time. And thanks to our latest Startup of the Week, finding those places just got a whole lot easier.
3D Hubs is an innovative new platform which connects people who want to print with the people who own the printers. Simple!
To use the service, simply upload a design, choose where you would like it to be printed and then go and collect your product.
If you own a 3D Printer, chances are you’re not using it all the time, so this platform provides the perfect way to keep your printer in use and earn you a bit of money at the same time. Simply list your printer on the 3D database and then wait to be contacted.
Not only is this service a real win win for all concerned, but it is also helping to create and connect new maker communities and thereby helping to shape the future of making.
Check out the video below for a little more insight into how it all works.
