+1 to hackaday though it was already there under community resources. But love to hear a few more suggestions.

re: 3D Model Resources
Thingiverse.com isn’t really a marketplace, in that all the models there are free. Some of the models are “teaser” models with more extensive selections available via Patreon.

Patreon.com - many 3D modellers have Patreon accounts set up which allow access to their library of models.

You could add MyMiniFactory.com, which includes both free and paid models.

TurboSquid free STL models
https://www.turbosquid.com/Search/3D-Models/stl
(For-pay models and other file formats available as well, including rigged models for animation - extensive library)

https://www.yeggi.com is a meta search engine for 3D models. Shows models from many other sites. Use “Search Options” to the right of the search box to limit searches to free models, if desired).

TinkerCAD.com shows models made by other users as well as an online tool for making your own. Note: does not play well with some AV software.

3DHubs.com is the Uber of 3d Printing - it is a clearinghouse where one can get their part printed by others. Some are professionals, some are hobbiests. Includes both additive (FDM, Resin, powder printing, SLS) and subtractive processes (e.g. milling).

@uglyknees… personally I’d rather we don’t go there in favor of everyone is just as equal as the next person but since we’re going to include the usual #SJW positivity focused racism/sexism discrimination then…

https://girlstart.org/

Couldn’t find anything for the #thick/#fluffy aka body positive crowd; doubt it exists but since the maker movement doesn’t identify based on age, race, skin color, etc… we really shouldn’t be discriminating at all.

added the better ones.

Take your message here: info @nationofmakers.us because you’re talking to a wall with me - I just copied and pasted what they sent out

Here’s the organization: https://nationofmakers.us/index.html
Good people, everyone should join

great and we already had nation of makers on that list. Any additional items that are an actual resource like tools, equipment, supplies?
