"let's solve two problems at once:
1. best 3D printers are expensive,
2. many Makers want to join DIY groups
...and let’s see what happens..."
- 3D printers aren't cheap.
- Does it make sense to have a 3D printer and not use it 99% of the time?
- Technology evolves very quickly. Are you ready to buy a new 3D printer every year?
- It's much more fun to do things in group and share what you do.
- To print something you can simply send a colleague your CAD file.
- Do you have children? , You may not want to have a printer at home.
- You can receive support from people with experience in 3D printing.
- You can always resell your participation in the group, which is much easier to sell than a 3D printer.
- Welcome to the sharing and the reputation economy.
How it works
We will help you to find others with similar interests and budgets who are ready to buy a 3D printer as a group.
It does not have to be strangers, How about your fellow model airplane club?, Your cooking club?
Online reputation works: Every user can simply check the online profiles of other members and decide who to follow or join.
You decide the printer that you wish to purchase and what you want to contribute each of you.
We will make you a proposal but you decide how you want to share your printer.
Instantly the platform can create a document of co-ownership (publicly or privately) where all the details will be explained.
Get access to a shopping network selling printers, materials, recycling, design, services...
3D printing + Co-ownership. Is it crazy? maybe.
3D printing is one of the most forward-looking technologies and many people refer to it as a revolution even greater than the internet.
We think it makes no sense to make parallels between the ways we use technologies like the personal computer or traditional printing with 3D printing.
"Sharing" is the answer to lots of day to day problems as it is currently happening in markets like holiday rentals (Airbnb), cars (Zipcar) or knowledge (Wikipedia)... and new phenomena such as "social networks" and “online reputation” allow "things" to be co-owned easily.
