In – Game Items vs Consumer products

   Whether one owns a home or business in second life or have a google sketch up account. Whether one posts cue ideas on miniclips pool blog or design concept vehicles for driving simulation games. Whether one is exploring strategies and ingame items for Mobile Strike or simply planning to build a flash based chess game to increase website traffic. Whether one is building an app or sharing emoticons on Flickr. Whether one is sharing images on Wikipedia or Flickr under creative commons. Whether one is writing a blog or research essay or testing for facts from Wikipedia and google sources, three dimensional objects have applications in all these scenarios. Their use comes in form of images, game imports and 3-d printing. With 3-dimensional printing becoming increasingly popular around the world, the websites and services associated with this business are becoming more user friendly. Many websites also share images of 3-d objects on the internet via google or google images. Though, these images may look similar to those of products on Amazon, E bay and DH Gate, there are some key differences between consumer products on 3-d print sites and the ones on E Bay and Amazon.

   First of all, 3-d print products are relatively new to the market with many of them uploaded by designers rather than people who manufacture products for a business. Though these products may be tested by designers as shown in most product and material demo’s on the site, they are relatively entrepreneurial products compared to consumer products in trend on E bay, Amazon and DH Gate.  Next, the print materials available on most 3-d print service based websites are relatively newly discovered or in use while the ones on E bay and Amazon have been used in the consumer products over and over again. Though, these websites have fact sheets and product safety guidelines on most if not all materials, the materials are mostly for prototypes and samples rather than for mass production. These prototypes and samples may be used once for projects, games, business or mass produced by manufacturers for business. Compared to E bay and amazon, which have relatively standard and one-liner product description, 3-dimensional products need to be described in more detail for entrepreneurs. Most of these are designed with a specific property or function in mind which is not a trend in the consumers market of E-bay and Amazon. Research products or products based on research may even have links and references to the fashion context (eg. movies, music videos and you tube videos) and applications. Many toys and educational products based on research are designed to check for material facts from material samples. Finally, some of these 3-d print products may simply be a part of blog or websites that sell essays and academic research papers while consumer products on E bay or amazon do not need an application essay or a blog to target a specific audience. Overall, there are some major differences between three dimensional products and consumer products on Amazon and E bay.

   In conclusion, despite the differences between 3-dimensional products and consumer products, the quality of the print materials offered by most 3-dimensional printing service based business online and business that simply sell these materials is as good as a finished consumer product and a functional one too! So, whether one is a entrepreneurial home owner looking to print new materials or products for home renovation and increase real estate prices or a car mechanic looking to solve rusting issues in most used vehicles, 3-dimensional print services may be the solution. With 3 – dimensional printers and materials available all over the world, the consumer demand has escalated mining for metals and precious metals wherever these resources are available. Product invention and innovation for applications like construction, consumer electronics, auto industries etc may start from ground up with new materials.  Not to mention, the platform 3-d printing may provide software and apps developers for consumer applications.
