The ability to effectively 3D model a desired object is fundamental for 3D printing to truly take hold as a viable production process. While designing products – or turning to 3D modeling services to create the desired product from a sketch – is the best way to fully leverage 3D printing’s potential for mass customization, the ability to rapidly find and download the desired product from an online 3D model database is key to exploiting 3D printing’s potential for distributed manufacturing.
This section of the 3D Printing Business Directory includes over 250 companies that operate in the world of 3D modeling, either providing 3D modeling services or by offering access to online databases and marketplaces with millions of 3D printable models – often available for free or for a very small fee. Also included in this category are animation studios, which often have mastered 3D modeling abilities and are among the biggest users of 3D printing.
