Seed forms

By introducing the concept of a seed form, we hope to empower you to invent, share, and discover novel uses for the products you already use, creating the next generation of printables with far greater usefulness.

Seed forms are 3D models of real world objects you already use. They're not intended for printing, but having access to these seed forms allows you to create accessories and add-ons for them.

Create derivatives

Leverage the hard work of the community by using existing designs to create new variations that others will love. Get additional karma when others create derivatives of your designs.
