We’ve heard from our community that videos are one of the best ways to learn about 3D printing. From tutorials to our How I Made It series, they are a great visual to use when picking up tips and tricks to up your 3D printing game.
In the past we’ve worked with our friends over at Skillshare to create videos that show you the ins and outs of 3D modeling. Today we’re excited to announce the launch of another series of videos that anyone can use to learn about running a small business on Shapeways.
Our marketplace is growing everyday (there are more than 23,000 shops!) and that means thousands of people have used their 3D design talent to start a small business. While we try to make things as easy as possible for our shop owners, there are still a few ways they can make sure their shop stands out from the crowd. From crafting a shop description to merchandising your products to rocking social media, these short, fun videos will give you all the tips and tricks to creating and running a shop on Shapeways.
As if that wasn’t good enough, Skillshare is offering our community the chance to sign up for a one-month Premium account for just $.99! Use code SHAPEWAYS when signing up.
Check them out and let us know what you think!
I have some 3d printed sculptures. I would like to offer them for sale with color and material options PLUS some customization. I want to have the client consult with me then place an order for a product of mine which is being made specially for that person. What is the best way for me to communicate with the Shapeways team? How can I be assured that the correct file will be used o print the product?
Thanks in advance,
Perhaps the “co-creators” option will do – it lets people upload images or supply their own texts etc. for decorating a basic design, and you will then get that information with a deadline to upload the customized model for that particular order. See entry “Customization: Make this model customizable” on the Details tab of your models
