- Ben Houston

July 3, 2014: Pinshape, the premiere online marketplace for 3D printing models, has just announced support for custom WebGL embeds in their product listings. You can now setup a scene in to showcase, in interactive 3D, your 3D printing models up for sale on Pinshape.

What is Pinshape? Pinshape is the premium online 3D printing marketplace that caters to the best 3D printing artists in the world. Because Pinshape is primarily a marketplace, it is a great way for 3D artists to make money from their 3D printing creations (that hopefully you made in!) and also to enhance an artist's visibility within the 3D printing community. It is worthwhile for everyone to check out what Pinshape has to offer. You can think of Pinshape as like Dribbble but for the 3D printing community.

Now instead of just a static photo of an object or a simple context-free 3D model, you can now let your users interact with your 3D models in real-world setups created in For example, here is an 3D printed octopus tablet/phone stand (by notcolinforreal) along with an iphone model in interactive 3D -- you can now see how the stand can be used, you can explore it, and you can see its scale: Officially Launching V-Ray Rendering + $1000 in Prizes.

It's ready for all of our users to try out right now (although you probably want to read the rest of this announcement first.) V-Ray integrated into is perfect for all types of renderings, including architectural and product renderings (including 3D printing models.)
