LONDON, September 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
As 3D printing technology continues to grow rapidly, and 3D printers within homes become more and more commonplace, solving the problem of "what to print" is becoming ever more pressing. MyMiniFactory.com has taken a distinct approach to solving this problem, and has enjoyed phenomenal success as a result.
MyMiniFactory is now Europe's number one 3D object download platform. Since its creation almost 18 months ago, MyMiniFactory has enjoyed a steady and significant rate of growth in a relatively small market that is often difficult to permeate. Boasting true curated content as its unique selling point, MyMiniFactory has managed to set itself apart from other similar 3D platforms by offering guaranteed printability in all its accepted uploads - something printer owners will understand to be an incredibly valuable resource.
Their worldwide factory has now grown to include over 16,000 registered members; a significant milestone in a nascent industry. Members are welcome to download any objects they like for free, and MyMiniFactory facilitates the growth of the community by encouraging users to submit feedback in the form of images of the objects they print, often offering tips and advice to users who desire it.
Of the objects that people download, we see - somewhat unsurprisingly - that as a category Games and Toys currently dominates the playing field, followed closely by Models and Figures. Since its inception however, other new categories have grown significantly, indicating an increasing demand for 3D printed objects outside the sphere of just fun and novelty. A general trend towards more functional objects can be observed, arguably a result of printers becoming more reliable, and people growing more comfortable with the technology.
MyMiniFactory's rate of growth shows no signs of slowing down, heading into the future they expect to receive thousands more submissions to the platform, and they will continue to test print each and every one, creating a robust and reliable resource for 3D printer owners around the world.
In light of their success MyMiniFactory is happy to be sponsoring "The Future of 3D Printing" Conference on the 25th of September in London - this event is set to be The UK's largest dedicated 3D printing meet up, and will play host to a number of prolific guest speakers from across the industry. You can sign up for this free event here.
