We have some good news to share! Snapmaker has joined TikTok, one of the fastest-growing and widely used social media platforms. In addition to our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube channel, we now have a new platform to engage with you guys! We posted our first video on TikTok on February 28 about our brand video.
Why Joined TikTok?
As for the platform itself, there’s no denying that TikTok has a huge impact to inspire people to try something new. Creators love making these short-form videos that are highly addictive for people to learn, explore, laugh or engage with, and there is no exception for the maker community. At the time of writing, there are over 7.6 billion views for TikTok videos with #3Dprinting, covering topics from 3D printing tips and tutorials, project showcases to even hilarious printing failures.
Besides the increasing trend of people sharing 3D printing-related videos on TikTok and the advantage of these short bursts of visual creativity, we are also inspired by the power of the maker community and how tech like 3D printing could help. This heartwarming story that happened in January this year melts our hearts. Former marathon athlete Jimmy Choi shared his daily struggles with Parkinson’s on TikTok that he had difficulty in picking up small pills because of shaky hands. Multiple strangers worked together and invented a 3D printed dispenser that can isolate a single pill within days. “Together we could do more.”
Aligning to our mission to enable everyone to create freely in the physical world, we hope to make a difference, even if it’s just a little bit, to connect with the maker globally on this platform. For 3D printing amateurs and professionals, sharing tips and tutorials, and cases on 3D printing to help them learn or get inspiration to aid their creative process. Though 3D printing is becoming more popular and accessible nowadays, many still haven’t tried it out, and we would love to engage with a wider audience and let them uncover the possibilities of 3D printing about it and the fun behind it. Or else, if we could make someone laugh or get something from our videos, it’s all worth it!
What to Expect?
More videos will be launched in the near future, including product guidelines, project showcases, reviews… We are new to this so thank you for being patient with us when we are building up our video collection.
