The website ottosaf.com was set up in July 2021, as a modest catalog of 3d printed objects created by NewmanX, aka Bob Newman. The motivation for setting up the web shop was to give the objects a place to be, to show and to be accessible to acquire.

The name OTTOSAF is an acronym for On The Topic Of Solids And Fab[rication].

Currently the operation is kept simple and experimental. Not offering delivery or streamlined payment options is a choice to keep a lid on things. That may change, but for now the priority is to create.
