Not all 3D Printers are equal

Just because the Specifications may be the same or similar does not mean it will print well

This article discusses a number of important things to consider when deciding what 3D Printer to buy. One of the biggest misconceptions with 3D Printers is that specification is what produces great prints.

There have been many reviews and 3d printer shootouts over the last couple of years that confirm this and other differences between various 3D Printers.

We have created a summary of information that we believe separates our UP 3D Printers from your average 3D Printer.

3D Printed Valentine's Day

Surprise your loved one with unique 3D Printed gifts for Valentine's Day
3D Printed Valentine's Day
I thought I would add some 3D Printed fun to Valentine’s day for my wife this year.

First I started with our favourite 3D Thing website. As expected it did not take long to find a whole range of things in the Valentine’s Day theme.

I had done some Valentine’s Day shopping where I purchased a nice Necklace that I thought she would like so I had some idea of what I was looking for on thingiverse. 

I searched for gift box to suit the necklace. I found this really nice 3D Printed Box that opens with a Heart inside. To display the necklace nicely in the box I quickly designed a platform for the bottom of the box. It was perfect.

While looking through thingiverse I could not help myself and printed out a number of other things.

Some Kiss Flowers and a single rose and of course a nice vase to put these in.

Oh and why not a personalised 3D Printed Love Mail Letterbox to leave nice things in during the year.

You have just got to love www.thingiverse.com and the UP Plus 2 3D Printer

Hope you all have a great Valentines Day.
