The 3D printing market is not a one-size-fits-all industry, which is demonstrated by the range of 3D printers available today with a variety of different labels from ‘industrial’ to ‘professional’ to ‘desktop.’ Each of those ranges has a list of subcategories, and an enormous array of choices, accessories, and materials that ensue from that point on.
Because there are so many different categories of users with varying requirements, 3Dfilamenta has created a marketplace for today where everyone can find what they need, including rare and difficult-to-find items.
While they may not have been completely responsible for the creating the idea, they may be quite influential in propagating the idea of a marketplace that has an innovative online presence worldwide, offering everything the 3D printing business or home enthusiast could want. This includes the launch of 3Dfilamenta’s own house brand of filament, dubbed 3DFM, which is short for 3Dfilamenta.
With 3DFM, 3Dfilamenta offers both ABS and PLA filament meant to offer their customers a 3D printing material that is user-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, vibrant — and capable of producing high-quality results. They stress that both materials are either purely ABS or PLA, without any ‘enhancements.’ The filament will be available for those who would like to become distributors separately, as well as customers who would like to purchase it through 3dfilamenta.
Using the B2C model and the C2C model for online retailing, 3Dfilamenta provides a retail establishment attractive for organizations and individuals on all levels, whether buying or selling. As they eschew the traditional and move into the sales platform of the future, 3Dfilamenta refers to their retail presence as a “dynamic open store” which they expect will attract entrepreneurs as sellers looking to expand their businesses.
While the 3D printing industry has taken off explosively, it’s still not always so easy for new entrepreneurs to help reach their audiences or for customers to get everything they need in one place. 3Dfilamenta plans to solve all these issues with a constantly evolving wide range of products, competitively priced.
The online retailer, headquarted in Hong Kong, stresses that anyone can operate as a seller in the 3Dfilamenta marketplace, which began in 2014 as a traditional retail store but quickly transformed into a global online retailer. As they work to promote the 3D printing industry for both entrepreneurs and enthusiasts, 3Dfilamenta offers a place where everyone can meet their needs. If you have anything related to 3D printing that you are interested in selling, they encourage you to check out their marketplace, which they see as emerging as the “center for sales regarding 3D printing.”
