I kept seeing an article appear about 3-d printing... Finally clicked on it... wow... this is awesome... It's like a sci-fi movie!

Wife and I are looking for unique items to eventually sell etc... this seems like an awesome idea to start with!

Good luck to all!

Sci fi? How about Action Movie Material?

Welcome! What types of things do you look to make and sell?

Holy Cow that is awesome!

I'll be honest... I don't know what gifts... Humerous types maybe.... We have some creative friends that sell crafts etc. How much luck have you had with this process?

I mostly design for myself. So I've had lots of luck Razz. I don't market much if at all, but I still sell some things from time to time.

I'll check out your shop!

How do people make money on it? Basically pay to have it "printed" and then add in a margin and sell on a store?

That is one method that works for a lot of people. Another method is you can sell straight from the site with your markup added on to the price. I don't live near any flea markets or anything where 3D printed items would sell well. But if I did, I would.
