3DPrintingModel is an online marketplace for 3D printing models and design files.

They believe that 3D Printing is the future of manufacturing, and will have a major effect on the global economy. Soon, everyone will own a 3D printer and will print things instead of buying them on the store. There will be less mass manufacturing done in developed countries to save costs and less worldwide cargo shipping. We’ll have a greener planet and personal manufacturing will make sure less nature resources are mined in vain.
Taken all that into consideration we built this 3D print model and designs marketplace. Their vision is that soon enough everyone will be searching for models on the internet and print them, instead of purchasing on the store. Many people will design things and then sell their design on the internet.





Like Tinkercad, 3D Tin is another cloud based CAD package. This is more powerful than TinkerCad, but also has a steeper leaning curve. Once again you can browse though other inventors designs.




GrabCAD is the Open Engineering platform that gives you the tools, knowledge and connections you need to build great products faster.





My Mini Factory

MyMiniFactory.com is a platform of free 3D Printable beautiful and useful objects. In its first version, opened on the 18th June 2013, MyMiniFactory.com is the result of many months of hard work by a team of experienced 3D designers. The large range of free 3D Printable objects aim at satisfying the growing number of 3D Printer owners.




Shapeways 3D Parts Database

The Shapeways 3D parts database is a place where you can download files for 3D printing. These files are 3D printing parts that you can use for free. The files currently in the database have all been tested and printed by us and all “print for sure.”





Thingiverse is a place for you to share your digital designs with the world. They believe that just as computing shifted away from the mainframe into the personal computer that you use today, digital fabrication will share the same path. In fact, it is already happening: laser cutters, cnc machines, 3D printers, and even automated paper cutters are all getting cheaper by the day. These machines are useful for a huge variety of things, but you need to supply them with a digital design in order to get anything useful out of them. They’re hoping that together they can create a community of people who create and share designs freely, so that all can benefit from them.
