Print3D Service

By on October 24th, 2008 in blog


Yet another 3D printing service has appeared, Print3D. While there are numerous 3D services, we thought Print3D had an interesting angle on price quoting. Rather than sending your model to the service for analysis and subsequent quoting, they instead provide a plugin to your favorite 3D modeling tool that can develop a quote for you immediately. The benefit? Your precious top-secret 3D model never leaves your premises! Plus the quote is instant, of course.

Currently Print3D offers quoting plugins for:

  • Alibre Design
  • AutoCAD
  • Inventor
  • Rhino
  • Solid Edge
  • SolidWorks
  • SpaceClaim

and they are soon to release for:

  • 3ds Max
  • IntelliCAD
  • IronCAD
  • KeyCreator
  • Maya
  • Pro/E
  • Revit

When you do send your model to Print3D, you use a secure FTP connection so no one can listen in. “Each order is individually encrypted and password protected”.

We didn’t think security was an issue in the 3D space, but evidently Print3D does. We’ll soon see if they are correct.
