Fabidoo Update

By on June 26th, 2008 in blog


It’s been a while since we’ve looked at Fabidoo, so we recently took a look at their current offerings.

For those who haven’t heard of them, Fabidoo is one of many 3D print services now available around the world. Print services are all the same, yet different: they all have a 3D print engine in the back room, but access to it differs greatly.

Some companies permit (and require) you to develop your own 3D model, which then is submitted for printing. Fabidoo has a different approach where they provide the model and customers merely select (and customize) the design before printing. This approach brings 3D manufacturing down to the consumer level, since only limited design skills are required.

Fabidoo began by offering a small selection of figurine models that could be customized. But today their list of available models has expanded and now includes clovers, hearts, USB stick covers and more. The best part is that many of the designs have been submitted by Fabidoo customers, where ratings let the most interesting designs float to the top of the list.
