Here’s a little behind-the-scenes: Some of you might already know this, but I script all the videos where it’s reasonable to do so, for example for a review, I do my testing, write down notes, and then write a script from those. It just makes for more compact and easier-to-follow videos, I’ve found. Writing this review for the Anet ET4 “Pro” has been the most challenging scripting process I’ve had to do for a while because the things Anet are trying to get away with here are making a mockeryContinue reading

Reviews of 3D printer components and accessories
Creality CR-6 SE vs. Ender-3 v2
The Creality CR-6 SE. It’s an attempt to catch up to the big boys and to finally have something that’s not going to be labeled as “just another budget 3D printer”. But here’s the thing: The Ender-3 v2 is their actual budget 3D printer and it is actually doing a much better job at just about everything the CR6-SE tries to do. It’s more reliable, it prints better, it looks like a more professional machine, comes in 1/3rd cheaper and it’s a printer you can buy right now without havingContinue reading
Slice Engineering Copperhead Review
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed just a 3D printer hotend without also looking at the printer around it – but that’s exactly what we’re going to do today. This is the Slice Engineering Copperhead, and I think it’s the first time a company is really serious about competing against E3D’s de-factor standard v6 hotend and ecosystem ever since that came out. But the Copperhead isn’t just a single hotend, it’s actually more of a set of hotend building blocks that you can use, adapt or leave out asContinue reading

Prusa Y-Axis upgrade
The MK3 is a really easy platform to upgrade – but does it need a 200€ HIWIN linear rail kit? Watch the video to see the process and results!
Interview One Click Metal
Let’s 3D print… with metals! There are a ton of options available now for producing 3D metal parts, but the most straightforward one involves laser-welding pulverized stainless steel directly into your final shape. No de-bindering, post-sintering or other steps necessary to get a fully functional part. And One Click Metal is working on making that technology a lot more affordable*!
Testing 5 different heated beds!
No two heated beds are the same – in this video, I test which beds have the best chance of getting your prints to stick!
Photogrammetry vs. “Real” 3D Scanner
In this video, we compare photogrammetry with a real, structured-light 3D scanner!
In-depth look at the Einsy from Prusa’s MK3! #TCT2017
Prusa’s new MK3 comes with a ton of new features, many of which are made possible by the completely re-engineered mainboard! Learn about why the switch away from the Ultimachine RAMBo was necessary, what makes the new Einsy board special and why 8-bit is still totally ok!
