Hassle free 3D printing with Materialyze

(Tech News) Ready-to-print 3D designs, available to send to your 3D printer in a few simple clicks with Materialyze.



Making 3D printing easier for the design-incapable

If you love the idea of 3D printing, but do not have the time to create a perfect design yourself (say with 123D), Materialyze may be a good alternative.

Materialyze simplifies the 3D printing process by allowing users to browse through print-ready design files that can be streamed directly to any 3D printer. You do not have to download a design, use a complicated software to refine and perfect the image, and then worry about getting it to print to the right specifications. Materialyze does it all for you.

If you are looking for a particular 3D design, Materialyze’s catalog ranges from art and decor to tools and toys. More designs are expected to be added as the platform gains popularity. When you find a design that suits your needs, you will see the optimal printing specifications, as provided by the artist, as well as the price. There are several free designs offered if you want to get your feet wet with the process before buying a more intricate design.

An alternative to the DRM

If you are a designer of 3D models and template, Materialyze helps you out by providing an alternative model to traditional digital rights management (DRM) because they offer a secure marketplace where designers can upload their creations without the risk of those designs being compromised.

This is due to the fact that when they share their 3D models online there is a possibility of unauthorized redistribution and misuse of their intellectual property. Materialyze’s online platform protects designers by streaming their models directly to the end user’s 3D printer, eliminating the risk of illegal redistribution. Artists can set their own prices and reach a much larger market than they could on their own.
