The do-it-all 3D printing filament: PETG! Learn what the differences are between Copolyester and PET and how to best print the materials.
Next up in this series, ABS! Ok, let’s start out with probably the most important bit about ABS: There’s not just one ABS, there are dozens of different versions that are all ABS-based or even just ABS-like. Let’s actually start with just ABS itself, which already isn’t just one thing. It’s acrylonitrile butadiene styrene,

Just post a photo of yourself and throw Instagram filters on it until all your Internet friends forget you’re still the exact same person as last year. Well, this one’s not getting any better…
What is the cheapest possible, real 3D printer you can buy without making one compromise after the other? That’s the question we’re asking by building a Prusa i3 MK2-style 3D printer that comes with most of the important features of the original one from Josef Prusa and requires a bit more work for sourcing and building the machine, but most importantly, we’re going to build it only with the most affordable set of parts.
As it turns out, copyright has a lot less power in the 3D printing space than I thought… Intellectual property has many faces – if you don’t know about them, it’s trivial to infringe on someone else’s rights. Here are the most important things to know about Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and how Open Source fits in.
