Like many of you, I am a big fan of 3D printing and where that industry is going. 3D printers are not all cheap, but you will learn a lot from playing around with them. Many folks love to share their printer status or designs on their sites. The process does not have to be a hassle or time-consuming. These five 3D printing plugins for WordPress can handle the job:

3d

Sculpteo Plugin: these guys have a WordPress plugin that lets you integrate 3D files or your gallery into your WordPress blog.

3d

STL Viewer: enables Thingiview on your site, so you can share 3D designs with your audience. The script is not perfect, but it does the job.

octoprint

Octoprint for WP: uses the Octoprint API to display the status of your 3D printer in a widget or on a page using a shortcode.

makerbot

WP Thingiverse Embed: embeds Thingiverse.com Things and streams into your website. The plugin hasn’t been updated for a while, but it did work the last time we tested it. You could always visit its GitHub page to learn how to create a plugin like this on your own.

shapeway

Shapeways Widget: lets you display your designs or shop items on your own website. You can change title, columns, rows, style, shop info, and more.
