Answer Those 3D Printing Questions!

By on September 8th, 2012 in Ideas


If you’re like us, you’ve often fielded many questions about 3D printing technology. And they’re the same questions almost every time. It would certainly be nice to simplify the questioning – and that’s exactly what Thingiverse user Shawn Grover of Calgary, Canada did. He produced a pre-made “brochure” that answers the most commonly observed 3D printing questions. 
The brochure is available for download at no charge from Thingiverse in multiple common formats so that you can change anything you like. 
One question we’d add, however, is the inevitable “How BIG can you print something?”, usually asked by someone staring at the build chamber of a 3D printer. The answer, of course, is: “You don’t. Printing big things takes forever!”
