George Starcher wrote a very thorough review of the Micro 3D Printer from M3D.
I love my M3D as someone new to 3D printing. I have learned a lot and made some mistakes. Hopefully, if you are as new as I am to 3D printing you can learn from my experience so far. It will continue to be good for portable printing and small lower detail parts. I expect in a few months I’ll graduate to the Flash Forge Creator Pro unless something better comes out for 2016.
George goes over his buying experience, unboxing, using mac vs windows, the firmware, slicing software, compares materials, and using octoprint. It’s one of the most detailed reviews we’ve read from a beginners perspective. It’s really detailed, so if you’re wondering if the M3D is for you, George’s review is definitely worth a read.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
