PrintNow supports 3D models created with Boxshot software or other free software like Blender for instance that can export OBJ models. A common product in PrintNow that can benefit from 3D is print packaging products like boxes and other folded dimensional products but there are many other potential uses for 3D models with web-to-print software like PrintNow. See Boxshot software documentation for full instructions on how to make OBJ/MTL files prior to upload into PrintNow.
