UntitledThreeding is one of the more dynamic companies that we follow, and we’ve watched them take on some massive 3D printing projects related to archiving and collaboration with museums in their home country of Bulgaria.

From noble projects like collaborating on and handling the 3D scanning, curating, and archiving of ancient, eastern orthodox religious artifacts from one of the largest cathedrals in the world to using 3D printing both to protect and highlight the catalog of works at Bulgaria’s Historical Museum of Stara Zagora, Threeding always guarantees a fascinating story for the world. And often, they allow much of their ‘story’ to be downloaded for 3D printing, in the form of 3D models replicating artifacts from ancient countries and cultures.

unnamed (1)Founded in 2013 in Bulgaria by a group of art students, led namely by Tzveta-Maria Partaleva and Stan Partalev, Threeding is currently the only 3D printing marketplace to offer 3D printable models of historical artifacts through its website. They are also determined to make 3D printing as fascinating and as easy as possible for their users with mobile apps.

We’ve reported previously on Threeding’s iOS app, as well as their original Android and FireOS apps. But in an effort to keep their platforms running on the cutting edge, it’s just been announced that they are releasing both Android and FireOS apps together with significant improvement of its infrastructure. The new versions of the apps are available for free download at Google Play and the Amazon Apps Store. A new iOS version–already extensively tested–will be on the way soon as well, but no release date has been given yet.

As one of the first websites for 3D printable models that introduced applications for mobile devices in 2014, Threeding has been a class act in this area with full web synchronization, meaning the models appear simultaneously on either platform. Now, the Android and FireOS apps have been updated to include voice search, rotation, and additional features to make 3D printing easier. Threeding has stated that uploads are only available through the web currently, with all web features to be integrated into the apps soon as well.

“The number of mobile users among our visitors is growing rapidly and we would like to offer them the best experience possible,” said Cveta-Maria Partaleva, co-founder of Threeding.com. “When we introduced our first Android, iOS and FireOS apps last year, many critics told us that it is too early for a 3D printing marketplace to launch apps, but the thousands of download proved them wrong. We will continue working in this direction.”

Along with this, they’ve also added new features from Amazon that improve the platform all around; not only that, now tens of thousands of customers will be able to use their platform all at once.  Let’s hear your thoughts on these updates in the Threeding forum thread on 3DPB.com.
