Changes To Thingiverse: Beautiful New Renders!

You will notice, starting today, that the Thingiverse team have updated the look of automatic renders of .stl files. And we think you’re gonna like it.

On the left is the old style rendering of a 3D model on Thingiverse. The picture on the right shows the updated version, using Blender as our rendering tool.

Not only do these give you a clearer picture of the Thing, they also reliably show the size of the Thing as modeled. Each square on this grid represents a 1cm square on a build platform. For reference, the build platform for our The Replicator is about 22.5 cm x 14.5 cm.
