3D printing enthusiasts that are looking for a quick and convenient way to find 3D models, design files and objects may be interested to know that the 3D printing search site Yobi3D has recently added some new features that may be of interest.
Michael Molitch-Hou from the 3D Printing Industry (3DPI) website recently met up with the founder of Yobi3D Jessy Lee, who discussed the new features and explained what you can expect for the future of the Yobi3D 3D printing search engine.
Recently the Yobi3D has been expanded with the installation of three major updates that have been created to increase the usefulness of the site providing textures, 3D printability analysis, and related 3D models. Yobi3D now also shows 3D models with texture maps making them look little more interesting than the greyscale that was previously used.
Yobi3D has now also included a 3D printing filter that limits the search results on the site in terms of the level of ‘printability’ in the form of easy, medium and hard print levels. 3DPI explains more about the new filter options :
While “Easy” requires no modification in order to be printable, models are determined to be “Medium” in terms of printability if they need to be repaired or converted and “Hard” if the file, when printed, does not even resemble its virtual form.
