For those engaged in the realm of 3D design and printing, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more well-loved and trusted social platform than MyMiniFactory. From engaging and fun competitions to a wide array of micro:bit 3D printing projects for schoolchildren, MyMiniFactory encompasses the very definition of the word dynamic in terms of what they offer to designers, consumers, and those with interest in 3D on any level; in fact, if you polled designers and shoppers as to what MyMiniFactory means to them, you would probably hear a long list of different answers. Today at London’s MMF, however, the key word is Studio.
Inviting designers around the world to participate in yet another level of the 3D revolution, the world’s leading curated social platform for 3D printable objects is introducing The Studios. And as to what will happen there? It all sounds pretty darned good, of course. 3D designers can look forward to further empowerment. They can reach out for more opportunities to realize their ambitions and goals—and most exciting for the entrepreneurial crowd, they can make an income while pursuing their passion and creating a personal brand.

“We are of course willing to work with designers who do not fall into the above categories as well, so if you think you have what it takes then get in touch!” states the MMF team.
As an exclusive studio designer at MMF, you would be able to look forward to numerous and exciting benefits such as revenue share, which is a program you can sign up for and make money, depending on how popular your designs are on the site. You can also look forward to using and ‘unlocking a slew of’ additional premium site features from MMF that may allow you to learn along the way too, with the use of a variety of tools and advanced analytics which can be very helpful in business and assessing social media, as well as giving you more control of your 3D objects, according to MMF.
Marketing and exposure is of course the biggest perk, and while your designs might be awesome, you’ll benefit from the enormous amount of traffic already coming to MMF.
“We will work with you to optimize your profile and grow your brand, as well as conduct marketing and outreach on your behalf,” states MMF.
The Studios already has several all-stars in residence:
- Jeff Lagant, also known as ‘StarJeff,’ is from France. With an interest in mechanical engineering, he makes a variety of 3D prints related to gaming and movies, and enjoys using numerous alternative materials too, from PET to LayBrick, with his Ultimaker 2.
- Jurica Pranjic from Switzerland is a designer and maker of toys, robots, and ‘functional designs.’ He enjoys using an Ultimaker 3D printer for many projects.
- Daniel Lilygreen is a mechanical engineer in Wales who uses Solidworks on a daily basis for producing CAD models and drawings. His 3D printer of choice is a brand new Deltatrix Black Edition printer.
