Web-based 3D printing company 3DLT has a different angle than 3D printing service providers and community hubs like Shapeways and i.materialise and they want to raise awareness by offering a serious discount on some cool, 3D printed products in the Mystery Box promotion.
While 3D designers can showcase and sell their work on the site, the objective of 3DLT is to provide exposure to designers and to facilitate connections between designers and retailers.
“3DLT is a platform that provides 3D printing as a service to retailers so they can sell 3D-printable products online and in-store,” Colin Klayer, COO of 3DLT, explains.
The products on the 3DLT site are pretty diverse, with offerings in the following categories: art, fashion, accessories, household, gadgets and electronics, hobby, and toys. Imagine you’re a retailer and you don’t have time to go to market.
3DLT may be the perfect solution for you. Most of the products seem to range in price from $5 to $10, with the exception of some jewelry products, which should also appeal to retailers who clearly want to turn a profit.
For those retailers who want to provide a customization experience, 3DLT is taking 3D printing into retail sites where customers can engage with the on-site manufacture of some products.
“3DLT is unique,” Brad Zapp, Director of 3DLT elaborated. “They can bring together an automative [sic] customer experience. They can integrate with an existing retailer’s technology platform and they supply the content. They are the only firm that can do that in the country.”
Right now they’re cleaning house in preparation for a new line of spring arrivals, so they are offering customers a great deal on what they’re calling a “Mystery Box.” For $50, you can select a “His” or “Hers” box, which may include anything from art, home decor, electronics accessories like cell phone cases, gadgets like dock amplifiers and who knows what else?
The Mystery Box contains, says the site, “$100 worth of 3D printed awesomeness,” cool products for your favorite guy or gal. It’s a great way to show someone you know how amazing 3D printing really is. You can always treat yourself as well or save the contents of your Mystery Box for stocking stuffers for next Christmas.
And if you’re a budding 3D designer, check out 3DLT as a forum for showcasing your designs so they’ll be seen by retailers nationwide! Will you invest in a Mystery Box? Let us know what goodies you find inside! Tell us what you hope is included in the 3DLT Mystery Box forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
