Patreon is an Internet-based platform that allows content creators to build their own subscription content service. It is popular among YouTube content creators, webcomic artists, writers, podcasters, musicians, and other categories of creators who post regularly online. It allows artists to receive funding directly from their fans, or patrons, on a recurring basis or per work of art. The company is started in 2013 and is based in San Francisco.

We got registered there a few years ago to try it out. What strikes us the most is that it is extremely user-friendly and definitely well build for 3D printing community content creators. It is possible to upload all sort of materials video, text and other files. It is especially good for 3D printing designers as they can park their STL files for a giveaway or get an opinion from the dedicated fan base prior uploading it to STL sharing website. Patreon is working in the same way as any other social site. There are the dashboard, notification system, mail system, and engagement statistics – all you could ask for. Patreon helps video makers to stay unbiased.
