Prusa SL1S Review

This is the Prusa SL1S – and it’s pretty fast! In fact, in most cases, it’s faster than every 3D printer I own, including filament-based ones. This is a resin printer, obviously. It’s also the smartest 3D printer I’ve ever used, to the point where sometimes it’s even outsmarting itself. And it’s also the most expensive 3D printer setup that I have, coming in at almost 2,000€ for the printer itself or 2,500€ for the bundle with the CW1S curing and washing machine, which you should definitely get if youContinue reading

Chitubox vs. Chitubox Pro

As of today, the Elegoo Mars 3 is locked down to only work with Chitu System’s Chitubox slicer – and any future printers from any manufacturer will be locked down, too, as long as they are built on the Chitu ecosystem. The firmware running on these printers is set up to only accept files that are signed off by Chitu’s software, and while there’s been a promise of an “SDK” being made available eventually, we don’t know which conditions, restrictions, and license fees, that eventually, you as the user willContinue reading

The BIGGEST 3D Printer I’ve ever reviewed: The BCN3D Sigma D25!

I love it when companies are doing something that is different, something that nobody else is doing, and carve out their little niche where if you have a specific set of requirements, then this is it, this is the best solution to that. And the BCN3D Sigma D25 that we’re going to review today is exactly that – it’s a large printer from a reputable company, and it’s got dual extrusion with two independent toolheads that each runs on its own X-Axis. Oh, and did I mention how frigging largeContinue reading

An (almost) perfect resin printing setup with one giant problem: Elegoo Mars 3 & Mercury X Bundle!

So this is Elegoo’s newest resin printer, the Mars 3. It seems like these machines are basically on an annual release cycle now, where it’s the same as with smartphones – new major release every year, and then a “Pro”, “A” or “C” version in between. But sort of alongside the Mars 3, they also released the Mercury X bundle, which is a set of a cleaning and curing machine that fits the Mars 3 and now finally, also the Saturn. The Saturn didn’t use to have any matching washingContinue reading

Elegoo Neptune 2 Review

Today we’re going to review the Elegoo Neptune 2. I didn’t even know that Elegoo had made a Neptune 1, I just knew them for their resin printers, but somehow, with the Neptune 2, they managed to make a competitor to the ever-present Ender-3 series and especially the Ender-3 v2 that is actually better in a lot of ways. But there is a tiny problem: Elegoo aren’t letting you buy the Neptune 2, which is puzzling, to say the least. This video does have a sponsor, though, and that’s ExtrudrContinue reading

Can you really trust my reviews?

Let’s talk about reviews. You know, they’ve been an essential part of my channel and of pretty much every other channel in tech, but there seems to be a range of interpretations of how a review should be done, and, if you’re not doing reviews yourself on the regular, you may not be aware of all the different factors that play into the outcome, the bottom line of a review including all of the twisted and intricate details of how reviewers earn an income by doing reviews, like for example,Continue reading

The next “BIG” thing: Prusa Mini Review

When you hear “Prusa” what comes to mind for you, what are your expectations for an original, genuine Prusa 3D printer? Okay, okay, hold on to those; for me, 1) A flawless user experience, so no guesswork, no messing around and tuning things, you just unbox it, set up the software, follow the manual, and get to printing. 2) Good print quality. Like, really good print quality to a point where I would say that, within the limits of current hardware and software, it’s going to be as good asContinue reading

Artillery Sidewinder X1 Review

Today we’re going to take a look at the Artillery X1. You might have seen a review or two of this printer on other channels from a couple of months ago, but this is the newest iteration, the v4. From what I’ve seen, the X1 supposedly has always been a printer that was really close to being a perfect low-budget machine and only had a couple of flaws that would need to be figured out, so what I really want to know is if Artillery or Evnovo finally managed toContinue reading
