How does it work?
The online portal is so designed that you may either upload your own 3D models or .stl files and the interface makes instant quotes available, based on the type of material you choose, to 3D print the object.
Once the ordering phase is complete, the 3D object is 3D printed and delivered to your address, and yes its international shipping (*charges/rates may change depending on the region).
What is the extra feature or how is this different?
The main advantage of this new online 3D printing portal is that, not only can you order 3D prints of your own 3D models, but also setup a 3DVIX subpage/shop of your own (like eBay) and start selling the products produced by your designs.
Enthusiasts and Designers can setup a store with their own brand within a sub domain of 3DVIX.
The store setup is simple; you make a design and upload it, 3DVIX shows you its 3D printing fees depending on the material you choose to make available to your customer, you then add your own commissions (a.k.a – Mark-up fees) to the final price and promote it on your sub domain page on 3DVIX.
3DVIX will handle the entire promotion, showcasing, sales, invoicing bits, so that you can concentrate on your designs and send you your total commission income, monthly.
