3D publishing concerns the production and distribution of content for 3D printers. 3D publishing holds out the promise of an industry for the creation and distribution of files for the production of 3D objects.
Any individual or organization producing files for 3D printers can be considered a 3D publisher. With the advent of specialist software, scanners and cloud based tools, access to 3D publishing is spreading fast. The development of online tools to facilitate and monetize publishing is bringing a new industry to fruition. Boundaries between value chains are disappearing, leading to new business models. While 3D publishing and 3D publishers is a fairly new concept, a lot of development is happening in this space alongside the breakneck development of 3D printing hardware and software.
