We’re always pumping out new features here at AstroPrint HQ, but we’re especially excited about this one! It’s been highly requested and now it’s ready to roll.
As an AstroPrint user, you can now share 3D models through Facebook, Twitter, or a special link. People that you share a model with can view it, share it, print it, or have it printed through a printing service.
Here’s how it works:
1) Find a sharable 3D model in your AstroPrint File Manager. Sharable 3D models are ones that you have uploaded. If you imported the model from a marketplace (such as WaterTight, 3DaGoGo, or MyMiniFactory) you will not be able to share the model. (This is to protect the original designer.) Click “Share Design.”
