Upload your model directly to MakePrintable using a straightforward import web interface. We accept 20 different files formats and a maximum of 200MB file size per upload. If you are a Blender, Sketchup, and Thingiverse users we have plugins, to learn more review our plugins section.
MakePrintable provides a free analysis tool that checks your files and gives you statistics on its printability. After the analysis, there is a simple configuration process and our algorithms will re-mesh your model for 3D printing removing all problems, and the model will be ready for 3D printing.
MakePrintable can optimise the model for the 3D printer or 3D printing process you plan to use. Convert 3D file's into .Obj, .STL, .3MF, SVG and G-code while retaining all details. Through the configuration process, there are two main quality outputs to select Prototype and High. We've added a polygon slider that allows you to control the number of triangles in your mesh. A wall thickness slider on the Pro/Plus to enable wall thickness adjustment. To reduce the printing time and material cost, there is a hollowing feature.
To speed up the 3D printing process, print through one of our listed 3D printing service bureaus. Print through Shapeways which provides a broad range of 3D printing material including aluminium and strong and flexible plastics. Or send your file to your 3D hubs account and locate the closest hub near you.

"We've been working with the MakePrintable team to create the best experience for our 3D designers. When it comes to repairing 3D models for our customers, they crushed it."
"We've tried dozens of 3D print cleanup solutions and pipelines but the results have always been unsatisfactory. We have been very impressed with what we've seen and tested with MakePrintable and we look forward to following their progress as they enter public beta we have high hopes for this tool."
"MakePrintable is by far the easiest print-prepping mechanism I've had the pleasure of using. I've thrown some really complex intersecting geometry at it, and gotten back something I can slice and print without having to spend hours running boolean operations."
"I’ve been testing MakePrintable to repair errant STL 3D models and found that its capabilities are quite unique among the many model repair options available to 3D print operators. This product uses different approaches and can make repairs to 3D models not easily done with other tools. I’m adding MakePrintable to my toolkit of 3D printing utility software."
