<span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing — faster and cheaper than Amazon or shops downtown

Any­one who buys a 3D print­er knows the start time in which one prints all sort of nec­es­sary and unnec­es­sary objects. After a while this amount decreas­es and you print more prag­mat­i­cal­ly and focus on util­i­ty (the thing 3D print­ers are actu­al­ly made for). In this blog post we walk you through a prac­ti­cal 3D […]
