slide-3The Treatstock team, behind one of the most unique 3D printing marketplaces you’ll see today, has exactly what most of us want to see in a company within the industry—they are makers, and they are enthusiastic about it. In business this often makes all the difference as it’s just a bit more difficult to cater to a customer base and to engage them if you don’t really understand what it is they are doing, why, and how they feel about it—as well as what challenges they might encounter along the way.

Providing an online platform for users to search for, purchase, and then have their models printed and delivered, Treatstock serves as a way for users to really enjoy the technology of 3D printing without having to put out large amounts of cash for hardware, software, or materials. It’s as easy as sitting at your desk, couch—or wherever you might be—and clicking away on your choices. It’s also now a bit different from the norm as Treatstock announces their new 3D viewing features.

The color view option

Offering a first for the 3D marketplace venue, the Treatstock team has developed a way for their users to enjoy a ‘perfect 3D view,’ whether using a desktop, tablet, or smartphone. The feature uses very little data, and should run well even if you have a slower connection. More importantly though—and to the benefit of the designer—when users are employing the new Treatstock 3D view, the model being viewed is protected from being captured as the file’s source code is guarded.

Combining some fun with the process, Treatstock also added the following capabilities for checking out potential 3D prints:

  • Different colors in 3D view
  • Metallic view
  • 3D glasses

These new features are great not just from the angle of enjoyment, but also in terms of helping designers who are trying to market their work. The 3D view allows for expanded showcasing of the portfolio and sharing with clients in a secure manner, and the models can be seen easily from every angle whether in default view, metallic view, or while wearing 3D glasses.

In the colored view, when getting ready to order a model and mark specifications and preferences, the customer can actually see what it would look like in an available color. Using the metallic option, users are able to get a better idea of what the surface texture would look like when 3D printed in metal, as lines and contours are accentuated. The introduction of 3D glasses is also a completely new trend for a venue like this and may very well be something other marketplaces soon follow, as the user is able to view 3D printable models in an augmented reality with the .stl file popping out from the screen, allowing for a complete view of what the finished project would look like.

Once a 3D model is chosen, the process is easy from there. Treatstock users simply select the material and color desired for their print. They are then able to choose a print service based on information like locale, reviews, and price. Once the product has been received and enjoyed (hopefully), they can even go so far as to write a review.

The Treatstock team is busy building a great community, so whether you are a designer of 3D models, a 3D printer owner, or someone involved in industry services—if you want to make a profit via what you have to offer, they encourage you to register in order to have fun and make money too.
