In 2007, Ponoko
began offering a 2D laser-cutting service that let people upload their designs and sell manufactured items online. Today, Ponoko announced a 3D manufacturing service called Ponoko Personal Factory 4.
CloudFab has joined our global digital making network, giving Ponoko customers the ability to create 3D printed designs. All with no set up fees, no minimum orders, and a free 365-day replacement policy.
Ponoko Personal Factory 4
We’ve added five new 3D printable materials to our materials catalog including durable white plastic, superfine plastic, rainbow color ceramic, stainless steel and gold plated stainless steel.
Ponoko Personal Factory 4 will auto price, auto check, and auto fix your 3D designs. We’ve also got 5 new starter kits for 3D modeling softwares: Alibre, Autodesk 3ds Max, Blender, Google SketchUp, and Solidworks.
