What If 3D Printing Plastics Were Superheroes?

What If 3D Printing Plastics Were Superheroes?

Plastic is the most popular material used for 3D printing and the cheapest one. We decided to make this ordinary topic a bit funnier than it really is and compared qualities of different plastic types with qualities superheroes have. ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) – Superman We compared ABS with Superman because they both are strong, […]

This Amazing Conductive Buzz Trace Game Was Entirely 3D Printed

Two years ago, if you asked me what desktop 3D printers could possibly be used to create, my answer would have been very short. You would have been limited to creating plastic prototypes and other doodads which didn’t provide much functionality. However, two years later the entire landscape has changed, and thanks to the vast array […]
