3DPrinterOS and Sketchfab have partnered to add multiple new features into 3DPrinterOS. 3DPrinterOS users now have access to an entire search engine powered by Sketchfab’s rapidly growing 3D content database. Additionally, using the Sketchfab to Facebook application in 3DPrinterOS, users can now share 3D models directly from 3DPrinterOS to Facebook.
As a primary tool in schools and universities, adding the Sketchfab search engine into 3DPrinterOS opens up a constantly growing library of content for teachers and students alike. With already over 34,000 files in 3DPrinterOS, users can now share files and projects with ease to Facebook. Everyone can then browse shared content in 3D without ever leaving their Facebook feed.[caption id="attachment_1307" align="aligncenter" width="547"]
