Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete? Well, no, Ariel. I think you need more things, and Thingiverse is here to help you. If you have a 3D printer, you can print user-shared designs, as well as upload some of your own. Now, if only one of you would buy me a 3D printer.
MakerBot's Thingiverse is a thriving design community for discovering, making, and sharing 3D printable things. As the world's largest 3D printing community, we believe that everyone should be encouraged to create and remix 3D things, no matter their technical expertise or previous experience. In the spirit of maintaining an open platform, all designs are encouraged to be licensed under a Creative Commons license. The Thingiverse app lets you browse Thingiverse from the comfort of your phone. See what we've featured, what's new and noteworthy, what the community has made, and what's popular. When looking at the things themselves, scroll through beautiful slideshows of photos. Like items, add them to your collections and quickly share them to your social networks or email. You can also view collections and comment on your favorite Things.
Since photos are so easily uploaded to Thingiverse from the app, it's super simple to share images of your prints with the community. Update your profile and cover images from your phone, too.
Have the MakerBot App installed? You can send Things directly to that app to start printing on your MakerBot 5th Generation 3D Printer. MakerBot App is available via Google Play.
