With all the new printable 3D model shops opening online, you'd wonder how they can possibly distinguish one from another. We've been examining Cuboyo and found they offer a convenient online experience for 3D model shopping.
The site contains only printable 3D models, greatly simplifying the shopping experience from typical and numerous 3D model online shops that don't clearly distinguish between renderable and printable 3D models. Cuboyo operates in a manner similar to EBay: both buyers and sellers are accommodated. They say:
Cuboyo allows 3D printable file designers to have unprecedented access to consumers, at the same time that consumers receive unprecedented access to a variety of printable files. The website effectively fills the gap between skilled designers and consumers. Cuboyo.com is now the virtual library for any type of useful object consumers can 3D print and use immediately.
Switzerland-based Cuboyo doesn't have that many models yet (77 as of our check), but we like the way they're presented. Each model has its price clearly listed - along with download time, estimated print cost and estimated print time. These factors could be important if you're in a hurry. Otherwise you'd have to download the model and run it through your slicing software first to determine the print time.
