Yesterday, Romain and Romain from MyMiniFactory contacted me for a partnership between Printoid and their website (yes, they’re both called Romain!)
You guys probably already know this fabulous website. But what’s exactly MyMiniFactory?
MyMiniFactory, which launched in 2013, is the world’s leading curated social platform for 3D printable objects. Think of us like the YouTube for 3D printing.On MyMiniFactory, you can find tens of thousands of 3D designs ready for you to download for free. These will work with any desktop 3D printer, and we have tested every single one so that it is guaranteed to print!Our mission statement is the following: Empowering creators to share digital objects with 3D printer owners around the world.MyMiniFactory‘s values center around quality and openness: quality with curation to assure all the models are printable, and openness with free downloads on all printable objects.We believe that with our team, our community and our values we can empower 3D designers and help them become the stars of the next decade.
About the partnership
The main goal of a partnership with MyMiniFactory is not to include a new branding in Printoid, but rather to simplify you life when you use OctoPrint with Printoid.
We would like to include a new pipe in your 3D printing habits: the integration of MyMiniFactory would be like:
- A 3D quality files browser in Printoid, powered by MyMiniFactory, and you would be able to directly send the files of your choice to your OctoPrint server (as mesh (STL or OBJ) or already sliced by the MyMiniFactory engines (as GCODE))
- A link to Printoid in the MyMiniFactory’s application from the page of a file, to directly send it to your OctoPrint server.
Both are solutions to be discussed further.
About your feelings
Because you guys make the app, your feelings about this partnership matters. And we need to know some of your habits, in order to think this integration at its best.
It would be very nice if a lot of you could answer to the few following polls!
Thank you in advance!
