    Thanks for reminding me that I need a 3D printer Jeremy :) I want one so badly. I wonder what our viewers are using for 3D printing. Any recommendations?

    Very nice episode, again! Would be great if you added the actual printing as well to the show.
    My project is building a 3D printer. Not from a kit, but from components I selvaged from old matrix printers (stepper motors, controller pcb's), even designing my own switched power supply now: each stepper motor has it's own voltage requirement... Long way to go before I'll be using Fusion and GrabCAD. But this video is a great motivation to go on :)

    @ActiveNick:I use a couple of MakerBot Replicator 2 printers for my larger print jobs, have a couple of MakerBot Replicator Mini printers for mobile events, and a FormLabs Form 1+ for things I need greater detail on. The FormLabs printer is by far my favorite.

    Great. I really learned alot. Initially I was very excited to watch this episode but was very disappointed in the end when got to know that you wont print it.
