3D printing design marketplace MakerShop offers designers flexibility with new subscription plans that let 3D printer designers customize shops with embedded HTML.

Charlotte, NC based online 3D printing design marketplace MakerShop lets 3D printer designers set up shops to monetize their designs. Now designers can setup subscription-based shops for a small monthly fee ($5~8 / month) that let them customize many of the shop pages by adding videos, donate buttons or special graphics through the HTML embedding feature.

The basic shop can be started for free and also allows embedding videos or other content in some parts of the layout, but in fewer locations. MakerShop integrates with PayPal but transactions are directly between the buyer and the seller via PayPal.

By letting designers embed video, MakerShop is expecting users to make better and more personal connection with their fans. Michael Spivey, SpiveyWorks CEO says "People want to know who the designer is when they create great work. 3D printing the work of a person is one dimension of connection and video is an additional way for designers to differentiate themselves in a growing marketplace for 3D printable models."

Spivey created the MakerShop.co website earlier in 2013. According to the company, the website crossed the 5000th download mark earlier in June as fans flocked to extraordinary designer Fantasygraph's 3D printer designs.
