The 3D printer world is an interesting place. Many commercially available printers start affordable but can quickly become a time and money suck as you add in all sorts of extras to improve the experience. Anker is jumping into the 3D market, making quite a splash with the Make M5 3D Printer; it will offer some jaw-dropping features right out of the box!
Last year, I bought a 3D printer. The first six months or so were pretty much spent churning out multiple Pokemon designs for my son, but we’ve branched out into more practical prints. Recently I’ve tried my hand at making lithophanes, 3D photograph prints, and the results have been so impressive that everyone in my family is getting lithophane photo gifts for the holidays!
Over the last five years, I don’t think I’ve gone longer than a week without hearing about how 3D printing is changing everything. Manufacturing, medicine, gaming, food, you name it.
I’m in the market for a 3D printer for many reasons, so when Monoprice offered to loan me their Maker Ultimate 3D Printer to review I jumped at the chance. It was easy to set up and use, but it is not quite ready for people who just want to press print. So, what makes it great? Let’s find out.
XYZprinting has announced an abundance of low-cost and adaptable 3D printers at their booth at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. Starting at $229.95, XYZprinting’s new offerings include the da Vinci Nano, da Vinci Junior 2.0 Mix, the Nobel 1.0A, and the Nobel Superfine. These new 3D printers run the gamut from beginner-friendly to professional-grade will be available starting January, 2017.
The Robo3D R1 Plus has been a ton of fun at our house. We found a bunch of models to print on Thingiverse before venturing out and designing our own models. Below is a showcase of the models we chose, some details regarding each print, and how they came out using the Robo3D R1 Plus 3D Printer.
The Robo3D R1 Plus is a 3D printer that’s simple enough for beginners, but capable enough to keep hobbyists happy. At $799.99, the R1 Plus comes with everything you’ll need to start printing right out of the box, except for a computer. 3D printing is a great way to get kids, or anybody, interested in STEM, so join the revolution!
I’m finishing a review of an amazing Robo 3D printer, an impressive device and I’m having fun. The company just announced two new additions to their product line, the Robo C2 and Robo R2 smart 3D printers. With Wi-Fi and a new Robo app, they make 3D printing smarter, faster and more convenient.
One of the newer pieces of tech that I’ve had a hard time getting too excited about is 3D printers. It’s probably because most of them look pretty complicated, and they aren’t cheap! Dremel, makers of the tool every hobbyist is familiar with, has their own 3D printer; it’s affordable, and it’s supposed to be easy to use.
It is nothing short of awesome when new technology is used to create traditional religious objects. Case in point, the 3D Printed Kippah that was given to me as a present last night. Members of my congregation saw this Kippah and knew I would love it. I do; it’s cool tech I can wear on Shabbat.
When our buddy Paul Strauss, aka TheAwesomer, told me he just heard a band playing instruments that were all created on 3D-Printers while walking the floor at CES 2014 I was a skeptic. Instruments that were printed? I thought he was pulling my leg. Then I heard them and (cue up the Monkeys…), I’m a Believer.
