Upload and describe your printable 3D files in order to increase their visibility.
The type of files that we accept are OBJ, STL, and WRML if your file has texture. If your 3D model contains texture or consists of more than one 3D file you must archive the files in one ZIP and upload the ZIP file that contains all the compressed files.
The maximum size for your file is 2GB.
Your 3D file must be optimized for 3D printing. It must be a solid form, all constructive elements in one file must be joined as one form. The model must be “watertight” - all panels of the model must be closed from all sides.
Note: Keep in mind that there are various techniques of 3D printing (FDM, SLA, SLS, DLP, etc.) that provide different opportunities to build surfaces and different precision, endurance, and capabilities.
If you want your 3D obejcts to reach a broader audience, there are a few things that we think might help you.
The title of the product should be a descriptive name up to 64 characters.
The product title must be relevant and specific and should contain a few of the most important keywords for your 3D model.
Choosing a category is important because it provides more visibility for your product for people browsing in a specific category. Selecting a category also adds the model to the right product listing and therefore contributes to reaching a larger audience.
Note: You can choose only one category.
In the Description, you can put information that can be useful to the end user.
Products with a good description of 50-100 words are sold up to 3 times more often.
Keywords help search engines and give more visibility to your product. We suggest that you add 10-20 keywords.
Try to identify the best-fitting keywords for your model instead of using general keywords.
Licensing and pricing are essential parts of each sale. We recommend reading all the licenses here before uploading your 3D models. This way, you can choose the best suited license(s) for your needs.
We have 3 types of Commercial licenses that grade from more restrictive to less restrictive which gives you freedom. Depending on your preferences, you can choose between 1 and 3 Commercial licenses for your 3D model. add a different price for each license.
We also offer 6 free licenses that give different options for using, crediting, editing, and distributing the uploaded models. We recommend learning more about each type of free licenses here before uploading your free products in order to see which one is the best fit for your requirements.
