New business brings 3D printing a step further to mass consumption.

3D printing has become somewhat of a phenomenon over the past few years however it has yet to reach commercial viability with very few actually owning one. This is where 3D Hubs comes in.

3D Hubs is a web-based platform that helps people connect with nearby 3D printer owners to print their designs in their local area.  Designers upload their designs to the site and are then able to choose from available print locations on an interactive map.  The owner of the 3D printer completes the design as a service paid for by the designer and they then meet up at the ‘3D printer hub’ to complete the process with the owner handing over the finished product.
