Mixed Dimensions, makers of the cloud-based file fixing software MakePrintable, has launched the beta-stage Fabrelic Marketplace for designers to 3D print their digital creations. In extension of a longstanding partnership with 3D design software developer Daz 3D, Mixed Dimensions has also launched the GamePrint 3D Print Shop as a plugin of Daz Studio software.
According to Muhannad Taslaq, CEO of Mixed Dimensions, “Our mission at Mixed Dimensions is to bring remarkable virtual creations into the physical world,”
“It’s our honor to debut our proprietary GamePrint technology in Daz Studio, directly engaging with the talented people that helped inspire the development of our personalized 3D printing solution.”
Daz Studio is a 3D morphing, posing, animation and rendering suite used by designers in illustration, gaming, film, television and web design. Models created by the Daz 3D community, comments Taslaq, are the kind “that leave us awestruck when we see them on screen.
Steve Spencer, General Manager at Daz 3D, adds, “The Daz 3D community of digital artists and 3D modelers invests so much of their time and talent into each and every button, belt loop and braid of the models they create and the amazing artwork and scenes created with them,”
“Now, with the Mixed Dimensions plugin, users can easily create and order physical 3D models of their designs at the level of detail and fidelity their artistry demands.”
Custom models, 3D printed, hand painted and delivered
Daz 3D’s GamePrint plugin allows designers to upload detailed models of characters to be 3D printed in resin and either hand painted, or polished to a high shine.
Typical cost for & inch tall 3D print in Daz Studio’s GamePrint is $250, with price increasing for the larger, collectible models.
Single color models also come in a range of finishes to give metallic or matte effects.
Spencer comments, “Now, with the Mixed Dimensions plugin, users can easily create and order physical 3D models of their designs at the level of detail and fidelity their artistry demands.”
“This solution not only makes 3D printing accessible to all of our customers, but does so at a quality level that is simply not available from other 3D print solutions.”
Fabrelic, in contrast, is Mixed Dimension’s personal project. In addition to getting digital creations 3D printed, the Fabrelic Marketplace will allow designers to set up a profile to sell these models to others.
