"With this update, we are solving the most pressing problems limiting the growth of quality 3D content in the market – namely licensing and 3D printing challenges.” – says Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.

Vilnius, Lithuania (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

CGTrader.com is excited to announce a new version of its website as a part of its strategy to provide high-quality 3D printable content for the growing 3D printing industry. With innovative 3D streaming and 3D printing partnerships, CGTrader solves the key issues that limit the growth of the market.

“According to Juniper Research, 3D content is the key driver of mainstream adoption of 3D printing. With over 58,500 professional 3D designers and over 60,000 3D models on offer, CGTrader is perfectly positioned to provide high-quality 3D content to the industry. With this update, we are solving the most pressing problems limiting the growth of quality 3D content in the market – namely licensing and 3D printing challenges.” – says Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.

Brands and designers are often deterred from offering high-quality 3D content for sale due to risk of losing control of the source files. To address this issue, CGTrader partnered with innovative licensing technology provider Authentise. With this technology, the seller can charge for each print and the model is streamed directly to the buyer’s 3D printer, without sharing the source file of the design. “We expect a number of brands and content owners to enter this space as this issue is solved.” – says Kalytis.

While most consumers are aware of 3D printing, majority of them still do not have a 3D printer at home. Therefore, CGTrader has expanded its partnership with 3D printing service Sculpteo. After purchase, Sculpteo 3D prints the model industrial-grade, high-quality 3D printers, and ships it directly to the customer. Thus, any designer with an innovative idea and 3D design skills, can reach a market of billions of mainstream customers.

“3D printing is rapidly entering everyday lives and will transform multiple industries over the coming decade. CGTrader.com marketplace aims to empower creative individuals to monetize their designs and thereby attract more high-quality designs to the market, giving the buyers a very clear use case for their printer.” - says Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.
