NEW YORK, NY, Oct. 7, 2015 /CNW/ - The launch of ShareStation 3D.com will allow 3D enthusiasts to download, share and print functional projects at no cost. 3D hobbyists can now print circuit boards, Arduino components, solar lights and battery housings among other exciting projects already available for download on www.sharestation3d.com.
Imagine using your home 3D printer to create an Mp3 player, an automated timer for your house lights or replace a broken part for your coffee maker. This will one day be possible with the continued development of functional and specialty filaments for 3D printers. ShareStation 3D.com represents a first step in allowing home 3D print hobbyists – from the novice to the expert – to build and share 3D print projects that work.
Visitors to ShareStation 3D.com are able to view, share or download print ready files of functional projects for free. Users can connect with other users, discuss projects, and even download free software that will allow them to convert their own circuit board designs into working 3D printable files.
ShareStaton 3D.com was developed and underwritten by Graphene 3D Lab, makers of functional and specialty 3D filaments. Elena Polyakova Co-CEO of Graphene 3D said, "Up until now, most home 3D printers have been limited to one type of print material – likely polymer – and owners are limited to projects that are static like cupholders, models, or jewelry. Using functional or specialty filaments allow users to print working projects, dramatically expanding what can be accomplished with a 3D printer." The company created ShareStation 3D.com as a destination where 3D print enthusiasts can share and download these projects and establish a community to advance these next generation 3D printing opportunities.
ShareStation 3D already features a number of functional 3D print projects available for download. However, users can share their own projects, and connect with other 3D builders. A notable breakthrough in the 3D printing world was the introduction of the conductive filament. With this filament users are now able to design and build functional electronic projects.
Featured projects available for download on the ShareStation 3D.com site include Arduino sound maker board and miniature traffic light, as well as a battery housing. Daniel Stolyarov Graphene 3D Co-CEO added, "ShareStation 3D is an analogy for the advancement of 3D printing in the manufacturing sector. 3D printing started with static multi-dimensional objects, now we are adding functionality. Soon 3D printing will be able to create multi-functional devices in a single print allowing 3D printing to be at the heart of the manufacturing industry. ShareStation 3D.com allows home users to take part in this exciting advancement and be a part of the ever-expanding capabilities of the 3D printing phenomena."
