DFRobot DreamMaker OverLord ProPlus 3D Printer Review
I’ve used a few different 3D printers over the years, and some of the biggest challenges I’ve had have been the level of detail of prints, the ability to print complex structures without lots of crazy supports, and the limited size of the build area.

3D Printer Error Detection Mod: Axistential
3D printers are prone to a problem called layer shifting, which is when the printer’s x- or y-axis stepper motor skips, causing layers from that point onward to be misaligned with the previously printed layers. That of course leads to a useless object and wasted time and materials.

Slash 3D Resin Printer Cranks out Eiffel Towers in a Jiffy
3D printers are cool because you can make stuff with them that you can actually hold and touch. I assume that the home or office of everyone who owns a 3D printer has stacks of tiny plastic whatnots that serve no purpose.

Using Disk Drives and 3D Printers as MIDI Musical Instruments
We’ve seen floppy drives and hard drives used to make music, but laurens.weyn’s Unconventional Instrument Orchestra can use “pretty much anything with steppers, or anything that makes noise on a signal pulse as percussion.” That includes hard drives, and floppy drives along with 3D printers, CNC machines and even doorbells.

3Doodler 2.0 3D Printing Pen Lets You Create Drawings in the Air
We have been talking about the 3Doodler pen since it first turned up on Kickstarter several years ago. This is sort of a mash up between a 3D printer and a hot glue gun. What it allows you to do is draw anything you can think of in full 3D rather than on flat paper.
