3DHubs Creates A Community for Sharing and Borrowing 3D Printers

Maybe you live in a tiny closet and 3D printers won’t fit. Or maybe you can’t sacrifice your lattes for the investment in a personal printer. All of these scenarios lead us to one conclusion. Now that we are all sharing houses, cars, bike, and airplanes, shouldn’t we be sharing our 3D printers as well?

It was just a matter of time, but 3DHubs does just that. It works just like any other web-sharing service, but you don’t have to do any work. Just send over a 3D file for printing and the “hub” will do the rest. If you own a 3D printer, you can sign up to be a “hub.”

3D Hubs provides a collaborative production platform for makers and 3D printer owners.

Using our platform, anyone with a 3D printer can bring customized, locally produced goods to those around them. Together, we strive to build communities that want to share the fun of making 3D printed products, while igniting a new industrial revolution in the process.

Unfortunately, the prices are still displayed in Euros and they haven’t added laser cutters to the map (on my bucketlist).
