We are happy to welcome the designs of Eastman, aka David Östman, to Angled.io. David makes fan art 3D busts of superheros and characters for 3D Printing. David is a Norwegian 3D modeler. Using Angled.io his designs are now accessible to those without 3D Printers.
We did something unique with David. We licensed his designs outright, then made some modifications to make them not just fine artistic pieces but also functional. Several of his designs have been turned into busts for headphone stands.
Putting his models on Angled, not only gives David another way to fund his work but also ensures that his work can reach much of the world. His designs have been made products, and he does not have to deal with manufacturing or logistics. He is entirely free to create.

With Angled we have taken the product development process and reduced its cost from 10,000's of dollars to make it free.
Bringing a product to market has always been a gamble. A big one. You would see an opportunity, and then you would go through a months-long process to prepare the design, purchase molds, ship in inventory, design packaging, get distribution, figure out marketing, and then finally launch.
That process of manufacturing a new product has always been very long and very expensive. Most products cost 10,000's of dollars before they ever hit an amazon listing or store shelf. And that process is also very complicated. Entrepreneurs have to navigate design, supply, sourcing, shipping, and marketing just to name a few.
This is silly. Zuckerberg was able to start Facebook from a weekend's work that was uploaded for free. Influencers post content on Instagram and Youtube for free but can make fortunes. Ebooks are published for free whenever an author is ready. But physical things still have an enormous cost and expertise barrier to entry.
That is why we made Angled. We have taken the supply, distribution, and manufacturing, and made it invisible and digital. So now manufacturing and selling a product is like uploading an EBook to amazon. You submit it, it is listed, and you get a royalty when someone buys it, but you pay nothing up front.
The reason this is possible is because we use digital manufacturing processes. We use 3D Printing farms instead of molds and warehouses. Products are made only when they are ordered. And to make them all we need is a 3D model of the product. This means none of the cost of traditional manufacturing applies. There are no molds, no transport, no inventory requirements. Just an idea and a laptop. Just as the servers that run the internet serve up your YouTube video when you want it. Our 3D Printing Farms serve up products when you want them.
We hope that Angled.io will make is possible for ideas to be created that were never possible before. A kid in a dorm room, with a weekend's effort, can now create something and deliver it to the world with nothing more than keystrokes and an idea.
Manufacturing used to be be a rich man's game. Now anyone, anytime, and anywhere can create, anything for free. And we can't wait to see what you create.
We are very excited to announce the release of Tippi Tree from our latest Angled Designer Devin Montes.
Tippi Tree is an awesome new construction game which is unlike any other that has ever been created. Not only can it be played alone the same way you would with blocks or legos, but it is a dynamic (and sometimes intense) multiplayer game as well, comparable to Jenga.
But Tippi Tree is not a 1-off. No it is just another week for Devin Montes. Each week Devin posts a Youtube video about creating something. (not always 3D Printed) His channel is wonderfully crafted and a great education for makers that just like to see cool stuff.
Devin is prolific. Even though he has been posting videos for the last 4 years and has a subscriber base of over 500,000 he goes above and beyond on each project and has a MyMiniFactory Page with over 400 models and 9000 followers. Tippi tree is just the tip of the iceberg,
Now with Angled, Devin is able to post new products that come directly from his videos. It was free for him to startup and he retains full control of his designs. But now community members can purchase the awesome new things that he creates. And since Devin receives a portion of all sales of his products, such as Tippi Tree, every purchase can go towards supporting his channel.
We're very excited to have Devin on the platform, and can't wait to see what he creates next. If you are interested buying the Tippi Tree Game, you can check it below.
Angled is proud to announce that we have started implementing designs from one of the best 3D Printing product designers around, Clockspring. Clockspring created weekly designs using the 3D Printing process. We love all of his work because it always takes full advantage of the 3D Printing process, which makes them perfect for Angled.
Check out his designs on his new designer page.
Clockspring historically has sold his 3D models to other 3D Printers in order to support his work. But now those products are accessible to the average person without a 3D Printer. As an Angled designer Clockspring will be receiving 25% of all sales of his products. Angled takes care of the 3D Printing and the fulfillment. So it is an entirely passive means of income for Clockspring.
If you would like to submit your designs to angled to can send them over for evaluation on our submission page.
The 4th generation Echo Dot has started shipping. That means that it is now possible to provide accessories for the leading smart speaker. And Angled is getting it started with a few basic accessories and some resources to other designers that would like to create accessories for the Echo Dot 4th Gen.
The first thing we decided to go ahead and fix was the stability. The 4th Gen Echo dot is, after all, a ball. It is not that stable. So we made a very simple stand that it can placed in that just keeps it from rolling off of your nightstand if you are using it as an alarm clock.
We then went ahead and created a few more basic stands from that platform. Each adding a different style to the Dot. All different shapes and colors. If you have an idea for an echo dot stand please submit it to us. We would be happy to add it to the site. And the designer receives 25% of all sales.
Swirl Echo Dot Stand (4th Gen)
Give your echo Dot a bit more style and keep it from rolling away.
The new echo dot is not one of the cheapest smart speakers anymore. Unlike the original puck design the new sphere costs 49-60 dollars. If you would like to create accessories for the echo dot. But don't want to pay for an actual new speaker. We have created and dummy model of the 4th gen echo dot. It is dimensionally accurate and can be used for the sizing, testing and photography
At Angled we are trying to make the creation of new products as easy as the writing of a blog post. You just create the design and then we take care of everything else. We hope this has inspired you as to what is possible. Any product that can be 3D Printed can be sold on Angled.io. No cost of setup no fees. We take care of printing and shipping, the designers are able to monetize their creativity by making awesome products. What would you create. Look around the site for ideas of what is possible.
One of the huge powers of 3D Printing is the ability to create an individual design without any sort of startup costs. Uncommon is really leveraging this by designing 3D Printed lamps.
UnCommon Lamps takes any image and create a custom lamp from the artwork. They then photograph that lamp and upload it to Angled.io. When an order is made, Angled prints the custom lamp and ships it to the customer. This leaves UnCommon to focus on marketing, design of new artwork for lamps, and licensing. They no longer have to maintain a 3D Printer farm and the logistics around manufacturing.
Now UnCommon does have components that are not 3D Printed in their designs. Namely the Lightbulbs and wiring. These pieces are warehoused by Angled and assembled when each lamp is made to order.
We are very excited about the products from UnCommon. They take advantage of the 3D Printing process to create truly unique products.
And here is the best part. We have partnered with UnCommon to allow other designers to create custom lamps based on the UnCommon Design. More details will be coming soon, but for now basically think of being able to make Lamps part of your custom merch, rather than just T-Shirts.
With the United States election on-coming, designers are in full swing creating Trump and Biden merchandise. Whether is be ballcaps, shirts, or toilet paper of the opposing candidate, Print on Demand is busy producing new items.
But it is so limited. The vast majority of election merchandise just clothing. Clothing that is rarely ever used beyond a rally or two. There is so much more that could be made and be used for longer periods of time to show support for your guy or gal.
At Angled we are actively looking for these types of political products from both sides. To be fair Donald Trump has a much broader presence than Joe Biden. We want to represent both equally if possible. So Consider this a shoutout to designers from the Biden camp. Let's see some more stuff from that side.

Once your create your new design go ahead and submit it to us for evaluation. This process usually takes about a week. But, as we said, we are looking for election merchandise to add to Angled. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
We are very excited to be adding this XBox HOTAS Setup by Akaki Kuumeri. This is the reason we started Angled.io so that anyone can create useful products and immediately get them into production and reap the benefits.
Akaki will be receiving a royalty of 25% of all sales of this device on Angled. We are taking care of the 3D Printing and fulfillment. This way the designer is able to focus on creating more awesome product it is possible for the average person to get access to the great 3D Printed products that are being created everyday. Check out the original article from the verge about the project below

Microsoft Flight Simulator has got a lot of people hankering to take to the virtual skies. But for many the experience isn’t complete without a flight stick of some sort. With lots of these now sold out that can be tough. But here’s a solution: 3D-printed parts that snap onto an Xbox One controller for a DIY conversion into a hands on throttle-and-stick or HOTAS.
This amazing little mod is the work of Akaki Kuumeri, a 3D printing tinkerer who maintains a YouTube channel showing off some of his creations. Kuumeri has made a video for this mod, too, and it’s well worth a watch, just for the groanworthy selection of puns alone.
If you want to made the mod yourself, Kuumeri has uploaded the plans to Thingiverse to download for free. You’ll need to have access to a 3D printer, of course. Everything just snaps together, and there’s even the option to fit elastic bands inside the linkages to adjust the spring force on the stick and throttle.
Some caveats: responding to questions on Reddit, Kuumeri notes that the parts don’t work with the Xbox 360 controller or PS4 controller (though he says he may work on the latter if there’s enough interest). By his own account, though, the whole setup works surprisingly smoothly. “I expected the ball joints to have some slop, which [on] the scale of a thumb stick would be too much to play accurately, but they’re absolutely perfect,” he told one questioner. “It also helps that the Xbox thumb sticks are on a very smooth hinge themselves.”
So if you’ve not been able to grab yourself a flight stick, this looks like the next best thing.
Amazon recently announced a whole new lineup of Amazon Echo Products this week. The echo dot became spherical and their cameras can fly now.
But the new designs mean that there is a whole new opportunity. The chance to create unique accessories for the new spherical form factor the Echo Dot
This is not new. 3D Printed accessories for the Amazon echo have been around for as long as the echo. And Angled has been a distributor/manufacturer for those accessories since we got started.
These accessories have allowed the Amazon echo to be hidden, placed in a more useful position, or just for decoration and fun.

The Bakers Cube was a sensation when it was first posted on thingiverse. With over 20,000 downloads it held the #1 spot for months.
Seeing the interest its creators (IOMAA) attempted to fun the mass production of the product with indegogo. But unfortunately they were not successful. It was just too expensive to get a product manufactured.
This is why we partnered with them when Angled.io was started. We knew that they could take advantage of the on-demand production capabilities that we had. A Cube is not made until a customer orders it. Just like an app-store all they had to do was upload the design. Then Angled printed, photographed, and deliveres the Bakers Cube to customers. All the while the creators are able to reap sales royalties every month from the sale of their product. And what a product it is.
The Baker's Cube is just awesome. It combines all of your measuring cups into a single piece. Making it easy to always find what you need when you need it.
Contains cup measurements for:
It is a great addition to any kitchen. You are no longer scrambling to find your 1/2 cup or rifling through a ring of teaspoons. They are all right there. All you have to do is rotate.
The Bakers Cube is made from eco-friendly bio-plastic which can be industrially composted. This ensures that it is not adding to the worldwide plastics problem. Though it does require that you wash the Bakers Cube in soap and cold water, and dishwashing heat and chemicals can cause it to break down.
The Bakers Cube is best for measuring dry goods like flour and sugar. When measuring liquids make sure to wash the Cube after use and allow to dry.
We love the Bakers Cube here at Angled. It is a perfectly designed product that solves a problem for everyone. And we are especially excited that the guys who created it are now about to monetize their invention without having to manufacture it themselves or sell off their intellectual property.\
If you have a product design that you would like to submit to Angled.io, send it over. We would be happy to take a look and would love to add it to the site.
Baker's Cube Dry Measuring Cups in a Single Cube
