Crowdsourced Marketplace Lets 3D-Printers Bid On Buyers’ Designs

Crowdsourced Marketplace Lets 3D-Printers Bid On Buyers’ Designs

A new startup could be the eBay of 3D Printing.

Lara Piras

CowFab is a new online bidding platform that allows users without their own printers to post their designs on the site and have 3D printing companies (or individuals) bid on the jobs. Users can upload their design, select a printer, and browse rates enabling competition to drive down prices and make 3D-printed objects affordable.

CF2

This new venture not only taps into the existing crowdsourcing trend that’s seen companies such as Airbnb thrive. But also sees a new lease of life for 3D printing by bringing down prices and making this new and exciting innovation increasingly accessible to the masses.
