ShareMy3D is an Oslo-based company that was recently founded with the aspiration to fill in the void that exists in 3D files communication between businesses. The company launched an online platform that enables anyone people to transfer and view large 3D files with unmatched speed and security, two elements that hold critical importance in the 3D business world.
ShareMy3D uses a special compression algorithm that was developed in-house, allowing files up up to 5 GBs in size to be easily handled and shared. The algorithm works with over 40 different formats that are widely used in the 3D printing industry, so it can serve a wide spectrum of potential communication and collaboration needs.
While some high-res 3D printing files can reach large sizes, ShareMy3D is especially useful in the area of 3D scanning, where files can quickly become very large and count millions of polygons. This is a problem that currently remains unaddressed as many companies still use outdated methods, such as sending of physical media from 3D scanning centers to 3D printing units. ShareMy3D is finally proposing a solution that incorporates modern technologies and programming ingenuity.
Of course, internal business and B2B communication must be always underpinned by maximum security and ShareMy3D takes this into account as well. The platform saves all files in a proprietary format that is locked down to a certain extent, as set by the original creator and distributor. The model file can be password protected so that only authorized people can access it.
Other possibilities that arise from the use of this service include sharing viewable 3D models on social networks in order to promote business, downloading the models for 3rd party printing, embedding interactive, online 3D model viewers on a company’s website for augmented product promotion. The platform viewer works directly from the browser and the responsiveness is incredible for such high-quality models. You can give it a try and see it for yourself.
The pricing for the service follows a subscription-based model. Depending on how many models you want to upload and what is their total size, the price ranges from $9 to $100 per month. However, there is also a freemium option that allows users to upload up to ten 3D models for free. A convenient online price calculator is also available in order help you determine the cost to cover your needs.
