Wouldn’t anyone like a boss like Phillip Torrone’s? The drafter had access to a Spectrum Z510 3D Printer at work, and his boss let him test the system in an unusual way:

Whenever we had to reset the system or replace the print heads, we would run a test file through. My boss at the time, a science fiction fan like me and a general all around cool guy, let me run some .stl files of my own as tests.


Phillip then printed out numerous science-fiction objects from 3D designs he cobbled together from others, or made himself. This illustrates the importance of having a ready-to-go library of 3D models, one of our wishes for 2008. Great work, Phillip!
