Thingiverse—the world's largest and by far most popular 3D printing community—offers more than 1 Million designs. For the most part the available designs are recombinations of existing ones, so-called 'remixes'. We analyze remixing within Thingiverse, visualize remix-relationships by a family tree of 3D designs and present common remix patterns.
