We're looking at a new service for 3D printer owners and users, Maker6. The site operates primarily as a source of 3D models, prints and printers for anyone seeking a print. There are three ways to use Maker6:
- Purchase a 3D print by selecting a design. It will be printed and sent to you
- Purchase a 3D model for download and print on your own 3D printer
- Link with a 3D printer owner to receive a quote on a 3D print in your area
It's all about getting a 3D print, using one of the three methods above. However, like most emerging model-source sites, there are not a lot of 3D models to choose from. In the case of Maker6, there are not that many 3D printer owners hooked into their service ecosystem yet, either - but it is fascinating to browse the different rates being charged by them.
That said, Maker6 is very well organized and provides easy ways to find models and services. You might want to check them out.
