Thingiverse Categories

The Thingiverse dev team has been busy lately, and today just launched its newest feature: categories!

To browse categories, click on the new “Browse” button in the top navigation, and choose a category.

You’ll see all kinds of awesome things from Thingiverse, sorted into categories for easier searching. Our team of highly advanced AIs has categorized over a thousand things to start off, and in the next few weeks will be categorizing everything on Thingiverse.

If you would like to categorize your things, click on the edit button on your thing.  On the edit page you will notice a new dropdown where you can choose or change the category of your thing.  Choose a category and save.  That’s it!

    I was wishing this for already a little time ago, however…

    – I would have made “Mechanical” a category by itself (instead of a sub-category of toys)

    – I also miss a “Robots” category (now I see some into models but… hmmmm…)

    just my two cents 😉

    Great job! thank you!
