Makerbot announces today a Verified Prints program for its 3D model repositories Thingiverse. Verified Prints program attempts to identity which 3D models can be downloaded and printed directly on a Makerbot 3D printer.

"We've been sorting through Thingiverse, testing and pre-slicing files to curate the designs that will give you an easy, high-quality print every time... We looked for designs without too many parts, too much hassle to assemble, any glitches or unexpected errors, and that don't take a lot of monitoring to ensure perfection when printing." notes Makerbot.

From now on, whenever you see a red check mark symbol and a black MakerBot Verified Files button on a Thing page, you can download the 3D files directly or click into the MakerBot Verified tab to download pre-sliced .x3g files.

A collection of all the Verified Files are listed here. Currently only Makerbot's own 3D design files, around 75 files are tested and verified. It will be a lot of work to sort through more than 100,000 3D models on Thingiverse, and test, pre-slice and verify them. But we like the idea, it allows users to quickly find ready-to-print files and start printing.
