My First (Good) 3D Print!

3D Printed Quake Logo

It has been a long time coming, but I finally bit the bullet and purchased a 3D printer. I have always thought 3D printers were some of the coolest technology out on the market, and to finally be able to try it out myself is almost a dream come true. I picked up a PowerSpec Pro which is MicroCenter’s generic model, which features dual extruders along with an LCD/firmware that is somewhat similar to a MakerBot. I must say that I have been pleasantly surprised so far. It definitely does take some tweaking to get the settings right for your particular application, but once dialed in this printer actually does perform quite well. My first decent print ended up being a Quake logo. 😀 Check it out!

Have your say
