We have decided to stop facilitating the sales of the Nightstand and the Amplifier accessories via 3dHubs network. This has to do with a number of operational issues we are encountering in facilitating the process between our customers and the printing hubs of the network. We love 3DHubs and we are still very close to their goals, so don’t see this as a final good-bye but more as a stand-by of our action together.
But hey, since we started our relationship back in 2013 our community has printed more than 1900 products! What an achievement! We have been pioneering the possibility of getting on-demand manufacturing for a product category that is normally flooded with products that are produced but not sold. We also know we have triggered some awesome relationship between people in neighbourhoods, introducing them to the world of 3D printing and connecting them with an awesome network of makers. Much of what we do, here at Fairphone embody that maker vision of doing things better whether it can be 3d printed or needs a visit to a mine.
When the time comes we will explore new opportunities together with 3D Hubs, and we are sure we will come up with new inspiring stuff.
In the meantime we are checking if we can release the design files so you can print your own, we will keep you informed!
