Spyder 3D World Unveils New Online 3D Printing Destination for Designers

By CIOReview | Monday, August 18, 2014

BREA, CA: Spyder 3D World, a 3D design marketplace for 3D printing enthusiasts to buy, sell and share 3D designs, has unveiled a new destination that showcases 3D innovations from designers around the world in an interactive marketplace.

“3D printing is opening new worlds of opportunity for creativity and advances in art, science and manufacturing. At Spyder 3D World we wanted to create a space where all of these elements can come together, where designs are celebrated and shared, where students learn from masters, and where anyone in the far corner of the globe can compete with a large corporation to sell their ideas,” says Joe Bloomfield, founder and CEO, Spyder 3D World.

In today’s world where there are communities that either sell or share designs, Spyder 3D World combines both worlds by offering 3D designers a marketplace to monetize their work or just share it. Designers from around the world are discovering Spyder 3D World and adding new items and files to the community on a daily basis. The Spyder 3D World blog highlights new and interesting work by designers. Recently showcased designers are from France, Mexico and Southern California, and new designers are welcome.

Within the past year, significant feats were accomplished with 3D printing technology including the 3D printing of 10 houses in Shanghai, a prosthetic hand printed by a Florida father for his 6-year-old son, and recently the US Army announced it will consider 3D printing food on the front lines. From musical instruments and medical devices to food, toys and shoes, 3D printing is changing nearly every industry and bringing the concept of personal manufacturing to reality.

According to Gartner Research, 3D printing is “accelerating to mainstream adoption” and is expected to create new product lines and markets at a rapid pace.
