Production 3D printing allows for the creation, iteration, and mass production of hardware products. The trouble is that few people are familiar with how to design practical products for the process. So we have launched the SlantStore.
The SlantStore is an online marketplace for new 3D printed products. We will be creating and curating 3D printed designs which can be used by the everyday person. From these products, designers should be able to learn the methodologies and sensibilities that really use the capabilities of 3D printing.
With the SlantStore we plan to demonstrate that 3D printed items be great products for the everyday person. Not just the 3D printing enthusiast. After all, for the end user, the manufacturing process is irrelevant as long as it is a good product.
We will be launching new products on the SlantStore weekly, in conjunction with our "Printed Summer" initiative. Check them out and let us know of products that you would like to see.
