Our journey so far - 2013-2021
It all started in early 2013 in a small office in Brick Lane, London. At the time, the MyMiniFactory team was designing, testing prints, 3D printing, publishing and promoting every single STL file on the platform.
8 years later, MyMiniFactory continues to help creators, makers, painters, illustrators and writers share extraordinary creative content.
8 years empowering an extraordinary community because we love you.
8 years of listening to you because we respect you.
8 years nurturing our values with you because we trust you.
While building unique and exceptional features that have helped creators and makers alike, MyMiniFactory has remained true to its core values; namely Sustainability, Purposefulness, Inclusivity and Freedom.
These values continue to be the lighthouse that guides us in the storm. They guide our tech, marketing and design road maps and all internal operational decisions.
These values are our backbone, our Raison d’Etre.
Our values embody our trust in the community
Because an ecosystem where creators can be financially independent supports a sustainable community - MyMiniFactory distributes 90% of sales to the store creators in line with this value.
Because originality built with a purpose supports superiority in the quality of content - MyMiniFactory offers guaranteed 3D printable content in line with this value.
Because everyone in the community, from beginners to professionals, can find a place to express their own identity through MyMiniFactory’s unique features.
Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains. Those who think themselves the masters of others are indeed greater slaves than they.
