How We’re Growing Pinshape’s 3D Printing Community!

How We’re Growing Pinshape’s 3D Printing Community!

Our CEO Lucas Matheson wanted to send a message out to YOU— our community! 

It’s been a HUGE year for Pinshape so far and I wanted to send out a quick update. Here’s the thing: what makes Pinshape different is our community, and they’re the reason why we’re growing 147% every month. Boom!

For everyone who’s been supporting us, thank you! Thank you for being a part of Pinshape and growing our community. Together we’re building a world class platform, attracting the best 3D designers in the world, and helping each other to print better models. At the end of the day, we all want to print great models, but Pinshape is much more than that because of you. Collectively, we’re making the future of 3D printing better!

Thanks to you, we’re growing A LOT. The last 6 months since we’ve launched publicly, we’ve seen 147% growth every month in our downloads and we see hundreds of new people join Pinshape every day. Our community now spans 70+ countries and it’s growing! Our forum is picking up, and we’re seeing many of you offering up helpful comments and suggestions on design, prints, and post processing.

We have A LOT to do in the coming months to make Pinshape even better and our team is working around the clock to bring you the best service we possibly can. If you’re on Pinshape regularly, you know we’re improving the site and the experience every week. Over the next few months, we’re going to improve Pinshape even more. We’re bringing on more exclusive content, contests, adding in requested features, and working with Partners to bring you deals on filament and printers. To help make that all happen, we’re raising another round on to hire more talent to bring even more value to our community.

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be working with our community to make things even better. We’ll be launching an ambassador program, and looking for forum moderators & guest blog posts to share with the community. We’re significantly expanding our partnerships and bringing in licensed content to Pinshape.

We’re more excited than ever about Pinshape and the future of consumer 3D printing. Content is king, and 3D printing is no different. I can’t wait to see what our community prints next!
