Thingiverse has the largest online 3D printing community of designers and makers where you can find over 2 million original 3D models. From fun miniatures and toys to replacement parts and upgrade components – there are so many Things to explore. And for those, who don’t own a 3D printer or have it temporarily out, we are happy to offer a 3D printing service or rapid prototyping on demand. Since our app is no longer supported by the platform, you can use the widget below to order Things printed.

Helpful Tips for printing Free models from Thingiverse

  1. Check that the STL file is 3D printable.

    Since the designs are fan made, some of them may have issues within the file that will influence the end part. We suggest reading comments from those who have already tried the design.
  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. Pay attention to the quantity and scale.

    For complex projects with many parts, double-check the number of parts you will need to assemble the Thing.
  4. Order “In Progress” Things on your own risk.

    Projects that are still in development would commonly have a bright orange bar at the top that suggests the work is still in progress. This indicates that there can be changes to the files or instructions themselves, so, as a result, the 3D file may be prone to clearance or printability issues.
  5. Check the size and scale of models before ordering.

    Make sure the dimensions are correct on Step 1 of the ordering process to get an item fit.
  6. Printing several Things.

    When you need to 3D print more than one project, you can add the extra files in order to have all Things made and shipped together. To do so, download the additional files beforehand, then, during the ordering process click “Upload files”.
