After mulling over various solutions for a while now, I have finally taken the plunge. Rather than maintaining two separate websites, I have merged the 3d.robives.com website into the main site. All the laser-cut and 3d printed projects from the original 3d site are now available within robives.com. This has the added advantage for members that they can also download these models for free. Not a member yet? You can still purchase the downloads for a small fee as before, or you can become a member here.

Visit the site shop and you can choose to view all the downloads, or choose from one of four categories to see the models you are after.

Paper | Laser Cut | 3d Print | Junk Models
