When you join makeSEA you get a set of online tools that let you:
Catalog & Organize
Your makeSEA account includes a 3D asset library to store, organize, version, and distribute your 3D print designs publicly, or privately.
Use your account to curate your private library of assets.
Create a metadata model for your catalog that is meaningful to your audience.
Protect designs automatically for download and generate "web safe" distributable versions that cannot be used without your knowledge or permission (great for catalogs that require a file upload vs. download link).
Make them freely accessible or limit access to authorized users.
Use version control to track changes and rollback.
Sync your catalog with multiple devices.
Showcase Your Work
Create a Personal or Community Profile and showcase your protected work; create a social presence and community that caters specifically to your 3D design audience.
You choose how to distribute your assets: publicly, privately from your personal makeSEA Community, via the makeSEA Showcase and Mash Market.
You can also distribute your protected designs via other marketplaces like Thingiverse, 3DWarehouse, Amazon, eBay, and more. You choose how to distribute your work, while makeSEA ensures you can track it, regardless of the point of distribution.
Version Once, Update Everywhere
When you share your registered assets, you can create new version updates in your makeSEA catalog. Versioned assets are immediately updated everywhere that your makeSEA assets are shared. You can share version specific copies, or always point to the latest version at your discretion.
We have much more in store! Your participation is key. Become a part of makeSEA with no cost or obligation and help influence the future of 3D printing today.
makeSEA is FREE to join. makeSEA members get access to exclusive collections of object designs. The Mash Market is comprised of hundreds of useful parametric objects, documentation and other supporting collateral to make quick work of modern 3D object design including fasteners, boxes, lids, motors, generators, wind turbines and much more! Curious about what exotic materials actually work? We've got you covered.
When you are ready you can share or sell your makeSEA Assets and Object collections and link them back to makeSEA for deep analytics and access control of your intellectual property. Or, keep them private and share only with select audiences.
If you choose to let others mashup and re-use your designs, makeSEA helps to ensure that you get attribution for future generations that evolve from your original work.
Important Hint!: The more re-mashable your designs are, the more likely they are to be popular in the Mash Market.
Attribution for the long-term: let your designs evolve. Get credit.
