Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
SpiveyWorks created MakerShop to put the designer first, instead of the 3D printing companies first. Online 3D printer design shop community MakerShop, currently in public beta, gives entrepreneurs the online tools they need to host, distribute and brand designs to be 3D printed. The site opened for public beta at the end of February and is free to use.
MakerShop believes the designer comes first, the designs come second and the community comes third. By giving individual entrepreneurs the power to brand a shop around what they care about, a platform to distribute design files and a blog to connect with the community, then designers will have everything they need to be successful.
The difference between MakerShop and other websites that host 3D designs is it gives shops a blog and integrates with other websites for customers to print their designs. The process is easier than sites that require users to download files, find and upload them to a separate service or companies that only promote their own 3D printing business.
Some of the most basic and useful designs are the 3D printed photo frame designs. People that have a 3D printer at home can press one button to download the files for free or for a fee. Other people can press one button to have the item 3D printed locally by someone in their community.
MakerShop wants 3D designers to sign up to create shops and post more designs. The website features Creative Commons licensed designs on its front page. Some of the 3D designs are for a model car, a wrench and several different photo frames.
