While 3D printing is sexy, headline grabbing, and ever changing, we must not forget about its 2-dimensional counterpart. Yes, I’m talking about old-school 2D printing, the kind of printing which was invented by Johannes Gutenberg back in the 1400s, and has continued to be one of the most effective ways of communication ever since. While […]

Typically when you think of the tradeoff between 3D printing speed and the quality in which the parts that come off of these printers exhibit, they have a negative correlation. You increase print speed, and this will almost always decrease the quality of the printed parts. Likewise, if print speed is slowed down, the quality, […]

Taiwanese Presidential Candidate Tsai Ing-wen Presents 3D Printed Piggy Banks to US Congresswomen

One of the biggest complaints we hear about 3D printing is that the only items that are easy to make are little trinkets, and that it’s too difficult to make anything of use. While I personally disagree with this assumption, there are certainly lots and lots of useless trinkets out there lying around, which people have made […]
