RE: 3D Printing - Toys for my Son and Building Together

in 3D Printing4 months ago

It's hard to believe we are in the age of desk top manufacturing. What a time to be alive.

I continue to wonder if a market could be built on Hive like thingaverse or whatever where people could get free or premium files to use.

Sort:  

Now this is what I am talking about~~ :)

Yes its definitely a crazy thing to think that it is possible to print a prototype without using a mold. and the best part is... you can do it from your own home. I never thought it would progress this fast.... and this is why I had to jump in the band wagon. If you like to build stuff, then 3D printing brings a whole lot of different ammunition to the table. :)

As for market, I do think a Hive platform can encourage creators to get incentivized for their ideas. And just like our Hive platform, let the market judge if its a good quality file or not.. just like how we vote good content and down vote the bad. The market can be the judge.... right? Thingiverse is all free.... and when things are too free, then there will be times we get some sketchy build quality files. I like where this is heading. :)
