3D Printing for Profit will empower you to start printing, discover the best products to sell and keep those sales growing. And you can accomplish this all from the comfort of your home, garage or virtually anywhere in the world.

So you first have to choose the right 3D Printer and understand the technology behind it, then set it up safely. You’ll need to decide which five products you’re going to print, maybe an interest or passion of yours and then “market test” those products.  After you have the best performing product, you will set up 3 online vendors to sell them. You will need to set up a shipping system including making shipping labels; then it’s critical to develop the habit of daily shipping by using an online service to make it super easy. After that, it’s time to drive traffic with Social media tools and taking care of your customers and using a referral program.  And the final step to take it to the next level and sustain your side hustle in 3D Printing you have to learn how to Design in 3D with Fusion 360. That’s a 30 journey alone but worth it. I cover all this in this course.

Course Includes

  • Professional Produced Course Videos
  • 6 Activities
  • Includes Ready for print 3D Print Fusion 360 Digital Models you can customize and sell now.

3D Printing for profit is focused on selling useful products that people want.  And it’s not just the bull shit like “the theory of printing”, you’ll gain the valuable skills to design and prototype your invention and either make income or become employable in the 3D printing industry or to optimize your home design and printing projects.

So how does Fusion 360 tie into this you ask?  Well, of course, it is the tool of choice when coming to 3D design, especially in the field of 3D printing.  During the first lesson there will be a live session demonstrating how Fusion 360 can be using it for your unique designs, and then show you how quickly you can make those models a reality with 3D printing.
