We're going to be testing this new forum idea out because we have seen an influx of 3D printed and handmade aquarium item selling. In the past we've really had no place for this (as far as sellers go) but in order to not stifle creativity we're testing out an idea to welcome this type of commerce to the community. We ask that if you are a seller that you honor our rules for this forum and if you're a buyer you make sure that the sellers are honoring our rules as well.

1. Only 3D Printed and Handmade items are to be sold in this forum.

2. All 3D printed and handmade aquarium products must be sold in this new forum only.

3. (Due to thee site upgrade, this rule is not currently in effect. Please don't worry about this for now.) A new for sale thread must be created for all sale items that are different. If you have 10 of the same items then you can sell all 10 in one thread. Just enter the correct quantity.

4. This new selling forum is for hobbyists who are making items on a small scale and not commercially. Just like sellers who sell coral trimmings. If you’re making items as a business then you will need to contact me for sponsorship details.

5. We reserve the right to restrict certain items that are pieces of equipment commonly sold as commercial ventures (i.e. most acrylic equipment items such as sumps, algae scrubbers, reactors, frag racks, or other types of industry items that are commonly found in the hobby produced by manufacturers or other businesses) or items sold by one of our sponsors.



Again we are testing this out so please help us by honoring the rules for selling! :)

Very interesting turn of events! I don't foresee personally using it as I have enough stuff to print for myself to keep my printer busy, it is nice to have an option. Thank you from the 3d printing community.

For clarification, what's the line between using this for selling printed designs and selling commercially?

I am banned from the marketplace and using PM because I'm considered commercial for also selling outside of this forum. This isn't being applied equally....

I have also been trying to email and send messages but have yet to hear back from anyone over the past month. I am willing to be a sponser and would like to get more information as it is also banning me from posting anything in the 3D marketplace.

Awesome!! You'll definitely want to be in touch with @revhtree. Email is usually the best way to reach him about sponsorship. For sponsorship inquiries, email info @reef2reef.com.

How would you guys recommend handling "multi" orders? The buy now button on my thread is for only one of the covers I produce and often people want to order 2 or 3 or 4. I could have people just keep clicking the button and processing several transactions but this clutters up my paypal and makes orders difficult to track and is tedious for the buyer. I could also make several threads with different order quantities but this may clutter up the sub forum and be confusing. Just wondering what you all think/recommend for handling this :)

The new market will handle multiple orders. It’s almost ready to test.

Stoked! Can't wait, will threads be migrated/updated or will we need to post again?
You’ll need to post again because it’s going to be so much more detailed!

Would I post custom artwork here? Or would I use the dry goods forum?

My artwork is custom for each buyer; I don’t make prints unless the buyer is ok with that and most of the time, since my work is usually memorial pieces, I don’t ever ask.

As a point of clarification, the following rule has been added to the guidelines above:

We reserve the right to restrict certain items that are pieces of equipment commonly sold as commercial ventures (i.e. most acrylic equipment items such as sumps, algae scrubbers, reactors, or other types of industry items that are commonly found in the hobby produced by manufacturers or other businesses) or items sold by one of our sponsors.
