Makerbot has today announced that its 3D printing website Thingyverse, that allows people to download 3D printing files to easily create objects on their own 3D printers or via the one of the 3D printing service that are currently available.
Has recorded its millionth 3D file upload to the site. MakerBot originally founded the Thingiverse website in a Brooklyn-based hacker space so there was a place on the Internet where people could share designs for physical objects.
Nadav Goshen, president of MakerBot explains more :
We believe that the impact Thingiverse has had on 3D printing and 3D design in its seven years is tremendous. Thingiverse has helped popularize 3D printing by creating a vibrant community and making it easy to discover, make and share 3D designs. It has become the go-to place on the Internet for anyone interested in 3D design and 3D printing. We are excited to see what people come up with next.
