3D printing marketplace Threeding continues to improve the platform's functionality with new features. Today the company introduces two new features: 3D preview and an online 3D printability check.

The first feature, 3D Preview will allow users to get a 360 degrees view of the model. The 3D preview feature will be available on web and certain mobile devices such as iPad. It is an addition to the 2D images currently available to each model. The texture of the models will be visible, so users will be able to explore model's geometry in details. The feature will not be available for large sized models due to technical limitations.

The other one, called "3D Printability Checker", is a software that checks the uploaded 3D printing file and automatically creates a water-tight mesh. The software checks automatically each 3D printing model, fixes missing polygon meshes, rounds non printable edges and fixes other issues that may disrupt the process of 3D printing. The models that have gone through 'Printability Check' will be certified as '3D Printability Checked'. "3D Printability Checker cannot guarantee 100% printability, but it significantly improves models quality." says the company.

The new features are designed to improve user experience for successful 3D printing. "3D preview of 3D printing models and 3D printability check are functionalities will give users better experience and additional security while shopping or selling via", said Stan Partalev, Co-founder of
