- What is SuperFanArt?
Global branded play leader, Hasbro, Inc. and Shapeways, the leading 3D printing marketplace and community, have teamed up to launch SuperFanArt, a website that enables fans inspired by Hasbro brands to showcase their artwork and sell their 3D printed designs on Shapeways. SuperFanArt grants the passionate and talented Hasbro brand fan base a license to create exciting new art and product offerings, and Shapeways brings the products to life with 3D printing.
- Why did Shapeways partner with SuperFanArt?
Shapeways is committed to helping designers across the globe bring their ideas to life and enable anyone to get products they want not just what's available. Designers often show a passion for a brand—whether it'Βs a TV show, movie, or book—and want to create a 3D product relevant to that brand, but are limited by copyrights. We are eager to find ways to bridge the gap between designers and brands, producing a creative environment where everyone is happy!
SuperFanArt, created by Hasbro and made possible by Shapeways, is that bridge. Hasbro is the first major brand to open its IP to the community, meaning that designers and artists will be able to legally create and sell products using Hasbro branded IP. They align with our mission and have the brands that people love—a perfect partnership!
- What does this mean for the Shapeways community?
Until now, the products on Shapeways have mostly been original content from the Shapeways community. This type of partnership enables the Shapeways community to expand their creativity by leveraging their passion for major global brands.
- How were the artists selected?
The featured artists were selected by Hasbro with the guidance of Shapeways. Additional artists will be incorporated into the site in the future; details and opportunities to be announced.
