So you have had your product approved for Angled. Congratulations. Welcome to the community of youtubers monetizing their 3D Models and content and creating great new ways of connecting with their audience.
At Angled we work to promote all of our partners and what they create. But ultimately the success of your products comes down to you. You need to understand your product and your audience. Once you know that you can promote it and increase your sales. Here are a few simple ways of promoting your product to increase sales through your youtube Channel
When we are working with new designers here at Angled we are constantly asked about surface finish and overall appearance. There are also the questions about material and function.
The short answer is that 3D Printed product can function as well if not better than any other process. As long as the design designs with 3D Printing in mind.
As far as appearance. 3D Printing will generally have a texture. But you can lean into that. You can use the 3D Printing layer lines like the grain in wood. Or you can apply textures to you part that cannot be created without normally have to paint of post process the piece.
But if you are just looking to know what comes off a 3D Printer without all the special design. We highly recommend you check out WildRoseBuilds. This great youtube channel prints all kinds of objects and gives you a good way to see what can come off a printer.
"The difficulty and value of manufacturing is underappreciated" -Elon Musk
There is nothing more difficult to do than manufacture a product. The idea is literally about 1% of the work that goes into bringing a product to consumers. The rest is actually makint the thing.
After the idea there is the design, from the design there is the optimization. That is dependent on the manufacturing process. If your product has more than 1 part then you have to deal with sourcing from multiple suppliers. The logistics and cost associated with that. Then there is the packaging. Once a product is in the box you have to deal with the fulfillment. But that is only after starting a marketplace for your product. And then there are taxes, potentially employees, rent, more manufacturing. Need we go on.
Designers are creative. And we need them to be. So many creative people are limited because they are only able to take one idea every few years and bring it to market. This is because everything around the product takes so much work. Imagine what could be created if the creation of a physical product was just like the creation of an app. A Kid with a laptop works up a digital design, and then posts it and people anywhere in the world can get a copy.
That is what we are creating with Angled. A marketplace, manufacturer, and distributor all in one. So designers and inventors can create products and just upload a digital design. Then it is available to the world. All with no up front cost. And the designer can sell 10 or 10 million. All with the same startup cost.
We are doing this with 3D Printing. As part of Slant 3D we have access to the largest and best 3D Printer farms in the world. These printer farms are able to produce 10,000's of parts every week. All with no molding.
Angled is the culmination of years of work at Slant 3D. Now we are able to make the creation of physical objects as easy as the creation of a website or a youtube video. You create the thing, and then it is available to anyone that wants it. And you, the designer, do not have to worry about the logistics of how that thing is delivered to the customer. Leaving you more time to create.
Angled is a manufacturing backend. But instead of servers delivering websites, we have 3D Printers delivering final products.
