3DHubs is dead


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3DHubs is dead

Still a bit on the iffy side. Whether the user in question was trying to move customers away still does not alleviate the issues mentioned below the answer. The system is not listing all printers, many printer orders drying up.

I have no idea of whether these printers complaining made money off lacking business practices, but that is what a rating system is for. Also, a business that used to get say 10%, then dropping top 4% then virtually nothing when the system is implemented points to an issue with the new system.

Though the OP did say 3D Hubs is dead (maybe philosophically?), it has changed and maybe not for the better for those who depended on them.

    My 2cents

    3dhubs is moving towards big farms with better print services. Like imaterialize but worldwide. Clearly small printers might have to search other way to make money.

    It’s normal that a small thing like 3dhubs when started did need small users to grow and make community but as they want more money they need to focus on companies and better quality to beat competitors.

    Umm

    :thinking_face:

    This reminds me of something else...

    There is nothing wrong with moving to a larger base for many jobs. I just wonder why they are trampling on the businesses that did do well and remain small. Kinda think there should be a way to do both in some way or another.

    Again, the ratings system should weed out the wheat from the chaff and provide a guide without tossing the well performing small guys.
