One of the great things about the platform is the choice it offers the clients it serves.

We recently brought on-board the big 3D printing service MakeXYZ, and they consider our API a fair investment because we saved them a lot of time and effort.

MakeXYZ still has a unified business platform of their own, but using some of the tools available through they were able to fill some of the holes in the features they offer. They also used to get ahead of competitors with powerful tools to replace MakeXYZ tools which may have become outdated, since the 3D modeling market is constantly evolving at a rapid pace.


Thumbnail Generator

One of the big pain points for a company like MakeXYZ is keeping up with all the developments in 3D modeling, 3D printing, and additive manufacturing. They were brave enough to ask for’s help in acquiring a few tools that really help their customers make their purchasing decisions.

The Thumbnail Generator is a perfect example, allowing customers to see a snapshot of their 3D print in a still image.

Thumbnails save a lot of frustration for users because you can see the color and general dimensions of your print, without the annoying open and closing of your 3D model editor & visualizer.

By simply giving customers a thumbnail of their 3D model, MakeXYZ is helping customers make 3D prints in way that’s smarter and faster.


3D Model Viewer

Visualizing a 3D model from every possible angle is a challenge, especially if you want to make the visualizer efficient and quick.

A 3D model viewer cannot be cumbersome and slow, which is why is currently using the most powerful visualizer available on the market. Our team has been working in 3D printing for 5 years and have put together a visualizer which gives you unprecedented control over your models.

One feature that helps our visualizer stand out is the ability to scale inside the 3D visualizer. This gives you the ability to fine-tune your print, on top of the typical visualizer features like rotate and zoom.

Not only that, but the stunning beauty of the visualizer helps customers make better decisions when ordering their 3D prints.

Final Thoughts

At the end of the day, is offering advanced tools that have saved MakeXYZ years of development on visualizers and thumbnail generation, all of which they were able to quickly implement through the API.

MakeXYZ trusted the toolset because they’ve already been proven and tested by thousands of customers and are easy and inexpensive to implement. What’s there not to love?
