While the world of 3D printing and innovation is already extremely rewarding in itself, 3D Hubs is busy spoiling their users even further, lavishing five new perks on the community. Why? Because they can. So even though you might have all the other typical stresses of life to worry about, nothing offers relaxation like exploring your creative side—and doing it with a discount.
Already making your life easier with over 16,500 3D printing hubs worldwide—and most likely offering one right near you—3D Hubs has a dedication to accessibility and affordability in 3D printing. All those reasons anyone could possibly think of not to engage in 3D printing are vanishing as quickly as you can speak up and utter “perks.”
If you were originally worried about the cost of purchasing a 3D printer—that’s solved by using a hub. If you are worried about accessing and affording materials, supplies, software, and more—that’s all streamlined for you as well—and made that much easier with the 3D Hubs Perks system, which offers you great discounts with the more you order. With the perks system, you also have some big names on your side featuring great items at much better prices.
“Each Hub will get discounts up to twenty-five percent, based on the amount of orders they complete on 3D Hubs,” Filemon Schoffer, Head of Community at 3D Hubs, told 3DPrint.com. “We aim to offer each Hub the benefits of scale (the 3D Hubs network) while maintaining all the advantages and flexibility of a small, individual business. It’s the strength of a community at its best!”
3D Hubs already has a fabulous perks program set up with ColorFabb for helping you to receive the best deals on quality filament. With priority on quality, development, and color—including a color matching service—ColorFabb is very serious about seeing that their makers have the best materials at the best prices, along with learning about all the latest in materials innovations.
Five new other companies are now joining forces so that you can add to your list of perks and discounts, as follows:
Proto-Pasta is a retailer of exotic filaments for unique and high quality 3D prints. Offering a range of alternative materials like carbon fiber PLA, magnetic iron PLA, PC-ABS alloy, and more, Proto-Pasta is a relatively new company that is not only unique in offering their spaghetti-like filament, but also in that they make their own industrial-grade extruders. Their filament is made for offering high performance and quality 3D prints from smaller FDM 3D printers.
MadeSolid offers users materials like cast solid resin for investment casting, all for use with both SLA and FDM 3D printers. They also offer materials such as FlexSolid filament, Vorex resin, and more. As the 3D Hubs team says, they make the”use in space” kind of stuff.
BuildTak is definitely a company looking out for their makers—and especially those who were tired of rigging up ways to achieve the best print surfaces. BuildTak offers buildplate sheets that eliminate all the inconveniences associated with removing your builds. Their product allows you to put away hairspray, tape, and all the homemade methods.
AstroPrint offers cloud OS for desktop printers, offering you one thing we all look for today: mobility and ease. No one wants to be tethered to one spot waiting anymore (how did we ever put up with all that?), and they allow you to extend slicing and 3D printing to “anything, anytime, from anywhere” with the addition of the AstroBox.
Filabot is another extremely user-centered company that allows you the added convenience and affordability of being able to recycle your old filament in your very own extruder, saving money and the planet all at once.
Between all these suppliers and perks, you should find some great savings on great products.
