According to Freelancer.com, 3D printing job market is skyrocketing, as dramatic leaps in all things three-dimensional (3D Rendering, 3D Animation, 3D Modelling) have been spotted in the Q1 2014. Notable advances in 3D printing technology are fuelling the intense interest in 3D, hence the job market is expected to maintain an upward trajectory in the foreseeable future. Jumping on the hot trend just at the right time, CGTrader.com hopes to spur 3D designers into making 3D modelling their priority and help them reap the benefits of creating custom products.
As households and workplaces increasingly adopt 3D printing, the demand for unique, custom products is soaring. Everyone is suddenly obsessed with 3D printing. CGTrader’s “Hiring for Work” campaign is an attempt to connect its community of professional 3D designers with savvy consumers, who are ready to take 3D printing home. “Hiring for Work” is built around the job on demand idea and strives to create equal opportunities for 3D designers with the right skill set and time to spare. The new era of mass personalisation is coming and consumers are starting to feel more at ease with ordering bespoke 3D products.
Kickstarting the “Hiring for Work” campaign with an exciting 3D Jewellery challenge, the company aims at bridging the gap between home users with limited understanding of 3D technology and professional 3D designers, who are looking for alternative ways to earn. Focusing on one of the fastest-growing 3D-printed product categories – 3D-printed jewellery – designers can make sure they’re visible in the market and expand their portfolios with items that are selling all year round. Having just rolled out an inspirational 3D printing campaign “Flat is Boring”, CGTrader.com leaves no stone unturned in its efforts to engage the consumer segment.
“Although 3D printing and modelling is fascinating, we understand that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. We want to make the idea of ordering bespoke 3D products online as non-scary and easy, as instant messaging a friend. At the same time, “Hiring for Work” is a golden opportunity for all 3D designers, who need that extra nudge to get going with their creative ideas. We have an array of thrilling new challenges coming up to suit everyone’s skills and interests and there is always that endless list of jobs on demand posted by home users” – says Marius Kalytis, CEO and co-founder of CGTrader.com.
