  1. Owen, Xeno, Valcrow thanks so much! Very good ideas - I will discuss them with my team and see what we can do.
  2. Alexander, thanks so much for clarifying! Just like you said, this is an experiment not only for you but for us as well, so apologies for the bumps along the way Valcrow, Xeno, these are all great points. We also think that high quality 3D printable models will find their place in the market. While the market for 3D models that are used digitally is pretty much established by now and I might say almost self-policing, the 3D printable models on our site do vary a lot. We have not yet figured out how to test for printability and ensure that the customers have the best experience, but we're thi
  3. Zungara, thanks for your comment and the suggestion for pricing! Yes, we probably still need to figure out the pricing and make sure the models are tested for printability to make it an attractive marketplace for printable models as well. I can see your point, there sometimes is variation in prices that is not very reasonable So we'll look into that and hopefully will make the system work better soon!
  4. Hi guys! Dalia from CGTrader here. We have received quite a few new 3D models for 3D printing. I selected mostly free models to share with you but also added a couple of paid ones, perhaps some of them will catch your attention or provide ideas or inspiration FREE MODELS The Escape 3D model by othar - FREE http://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/character-people/fantasy/the-escape FOK1 Restriction Enzyme 3D model by jencheng - FREE (I think you might need an SLS for this one, but please correct me if I am wrong!) http://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/science-medical/other/fok1-restriction-enz
  5. Thanks a lot guys! This is very helpful, appreciate it
  6. Hi guys, Apologies if this was covered before, but after some searching I could not find an answer. The question we had by one of the designers is how many polygons can 3D printing software handle? The designer is working on a model in ZBrush, so perhaps someone of you have had the experience? Thanks a lot in advance!
  7. Hey Ian, will do Thanks for your feedback!
  8. Hi guys, A nice discussion here Thanks for taking the time! I think the pricing is still a question that will be resolved in the future. 3D printing is still an emerging area - and it is great to share the models for free to contribute to the growth of the industry and make more designs available. But I believe professional-level designs have value and at some point in the future it will make sense to pay for a high-quality model. Our goal in this is to help talented designers make a living off their creations Am001, that's a fair point. We've seen some computer graphics designers who swi
  9. Hi Ian! Thanks a lot for your concern There are some spammers indeed, but I am not one of them We run a 3D model marketplace for 3D artists and designers, majority of their works are used in computer graphics, but we see increasing interest in 3D printing as well. This is one of the reasons we partnered up with Ultimaker for the best 3D printable model competition - you can see the conditions here: http://www.cgtrader.com/challenges-and-competitions/3d-printing-competition-2013. So as you mention, the model could perhaps use some improvement, but this feedback is extremely valuable for the
  10. Hey Paul! Yes, I assume there is a lot of work behind it! But check it out, you can make an offer for a lower price or contact the author - I think they would make a discount or even share the model with you if you consider printing it
  11. Wow! This is very cool! If you change your mind about selling / sharing the model, consider CGTrader, we'd be more than happy to help you sell it
  12. Another interesting design for those willing to print http://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/weapon-military/vehicle/thracar
  13. We've got some nice letter designs on CGTrader but the author does not have a 3D printer. Anyone would like to try it out or provide feedback? http://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/architectural-details/decoration/print-ready-steampunk-alphabet-letter-b
