3D Hubs, an Amsterdam-based startup which currently boasts the largest network for 3D printers, today announced the introduction of a new enterprise-grade API that connects creators and users of 3D content to its global network.

3D Hubs also announced that design software leader Autodesk will be the first company to integrate the 3D Hubs 3D print network API for the Autodesk 123D family of apps, and the 3D Hubs API will be fully integrated within the Autodesk platform in the months ahead.

Today, agility, time-to-market and innovation are the most important factors for manufacturers, and 3D printing allows for high-value, low-volume product production to be done close to home. The integration of the 3D Hubs and Autodesk 123D platform makes it easy for everyone to directly turn their designs into physical products. The average delivery time of products printed via 3D Hubs is less than two days, according to 3D Hubs.

"3D printers might not yet be in every home the way televisions and phones are, but that doesn't mean everyday consumers won't 3D print," said Samir Hanna, vice president of consumer products at Autodesk. "Integrating the 3D Hubs printer network will provide Autodesk users with more convenient access to 3D printing from fellow designers and makers located just around the corner."

In celebration of their new collaboration, 3D Hubs and Autodesk will host a free 3D modeling and printing workshop, and a networking mixer in the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco on April 11, 2014, for the Silicon Valley 3D printing, startup, and creative communities.
