Tag Tuesday: The Animal Edition

This week we take a look at the animalistic 3D prints in the Shapeways galleries.

Every Tuesday we update the Shapeways homepage with your designs based on a particular tag.  This week we are featuring products with the tag animal to curate the homepage, and show some of the massive diversity of designs within a set theme.
Be sure to tag your designs so that we, and others can better find your designs.  It only takes a few seconds and makes your design infinitely more findable.  If we can find your design via your tags, and feature them on the Shapeways homepage you will see an immediate spike in traffic, and hopefully sales too. 
If your design on Shapeways has some animalistic qualities, be sure to tag it animal and it just may make it’s way on to the Shapeways homepage too….

Shapeways now has hundreds of thousands of 3D models just waiting to be 3D printed.  Sometimes it can be a little hard to find exactly what you are looking for (unless you design it for yourself).  Giving your design a descriptive title will help people find your product in both Shapeways and Google search, adding your model to a category is essential to them appearing in the galleries and adding tags makes it easier for people to discover products around a very specific theme.
