Re: The robox desktop 3D printer

Here is something that has been done with the Robox 3D printers 20 micron capability.

Re: 3D models created based on twitter user profiles

What quantity of 3D printer filament do you prefer to buy?

We would be interested to know what quantities people prefer to buy 3D printer filament in.

For example do you like to buy in 1kg spools or would you prefer to buy it by the meter or perhaps somewhere in between.

We would be very interested to hear your views.

Re: Test your 3D Printer

This is a great .STL file for testing your 3D printer. What is more it was designed with the idea that it should be used to compare both between different printer models, between different printers of the same model and also for testing the change in your own 3D printer on different settings. Its a ...
