Thingiverse is an online community focused on sharing ideas and digital designs. The website is a creation of Hackers and Educators Zach Hoeken and Bre Pettis from Makerbot Industries. The premise of the site is that members make a profile and upload their own original designs for other members to download and make themselves.
The Thingiverse community isn’t only geared towards 3D Printing but incorporates many other personal manufacturing technologies such as Laser Cutters, Plotters, Hand Tools and many, many more.

My Personal Experience
I love Thingiverse as it’s a great way to not only share your ideas, but to get feedback on your designs. I’ve had my designs downloaded over 1,200 times and even had feedback from a Father and Son in France who built one of my more complicated laser cut pendant lights. I’ve also had a lot of fun and learnt a lot by making other members designs so get involved and join Thingiverse today!! Feel free to check out My Profile
