All-in-one 3D Printer Test File: The XYZs of Printing

 |  |  |  |  March 7, 2015


Thingiverse member ctrlV made a 3D model that can help 3D printer owners test their device and perhaps see if there’s something wrong with their software or hardware. Speaking with 3D Print, ctrlV says there are other similar 3D models, but his file can help check for different issues at once.
