Print-A-Part 3D has launched their platform for 3D models of bolts, screws, nuts, washers and other industrial fasteners back in December.
Now they offer their renderable and 3D printable parts through the online retailer Amazon as well. Until Amazon has come up with a solution to download non-entertainment media in their online store, the parts are available as STL files on flash drives and memory cards. The download feature is expected to be implemented by the end of the year however.
Customers have the opportunity to buy and download the files from Print-A-Part 3D’s website directly. The company has also recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to collect $ 250.000 in funding for their project.
The company intents to “stimulate the development of high-end 3d designers, by providing a robust marketplace for the designs of freelance and home based 3d developers. 100’s of designers from over 40 countries have joined the Print-A-Part family as designers,” says Gare Henderson, head design engineer at Print-A-Part.
