MakerBot's Thingiverse is a thriving design community for discovering, making, and sharing 3D printable things. As the world's largest 3D printing community, we believe that everyone should be encouraged to create and remix 3D things, no matter their technical expertise or previous experience. In the spirit of maintaining an open platform, all designs are encouraged to be licensed under a Creative Commons license.
The Thingiverse app lets you browse Thingiverse from the comfort of your phone. See what we’ve featured, what’s new and noteworthy, what the community has made, and what’s popular. When looking at the things themselves, scroll through beautiful slideshows of photos. Like items, add them to your collections, and quickly share them to your social networks or email.
Since photos are so easily uploaded to Thingiverse from the app, it’s super simple to share images of your prints with the community. Update your profile and cover images from your phone, too.
Make. Share. Discover.
What's New in Version 1.1.9
- Bug fixes
Easy to use! Great sharing App
This app makes it easy for me to take pictures of my 3D prints with my phone, then quickly post them with a short description to the thingiverse.
Allowing me to get my designs online quick, easy sharing to all my social accounts, & gets me right back to 3D Designing/Printing!
Another thing that is awesome is you can view everything on the site and save it to a category you can specify. When you change what your looking for you can change the category it is saved to then when it's time to print the models are easy to find!
All from my iPhone, Love it!
So Close to Being Great
So, the app actually works well but the devs have left out or hidden a few REALLY important features. Main frustration? You can't go BACK. That's right, if you've scrolled down a bunch of designs and open one, there's no way to just go back to where you were on the list. You an see a compressed version by hitting the options button but it doesn't load any more than where it was before you opened the current design. Insanely frustrating.
Another huge oversight; when you hit share there not an option to copy a web address link! So if I want to share a design with someone I'm texting I have to use social media or email.
As other reviews have noted, the search option is in the most confusing location possible.
Fix those few things and this would be a practically perfect app.
Unable to "open" or click on posts in my feed. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and the whole bit. Search feature is lacking especially if you want to continue or "go back" to a search after clicking on one of the results. It works just enough for me to want to keep it but not enough for me to really want to use it. Also the ironic part is the "Feedback" feature to obviously send feedback about such issues doesn't even work... Frustrating.
