Helpful tips for printing free models from Thingiverse


1. Check that the STL file is 3D printable

Not all STL files on Thingiverse are actually 3D printable. That is why we suggest reading comments from those who have already printed the design. If you would like to modify the 3D model, you can hire an experienced designer or try it yourself with Thingiverse Customizer.

2. Follow the designer's recommendations

Be sure to read the summary, instructions and print settings written by the designer for important information on the type of material and 3D printing technology recommended for producing the design. 

3. Print on Treatstock

Our printing app only works with PLA, so if the designer has recommended a different material, you can always download the files from Thingiverse and create an order on our website where you can choose from over 100 materials and colors.
