How we got Tangled Up In 3D Printer Filament

3D Printer Filament
To be honest I cannot actually recall the exact moment I decided to get into 3D printing, but I can tell you how I got bitten.

If I recall correctly, it was a post on Deviant art talking about how someone printed a model at Shapeways. Now I have been a hobby 3D artist for over 2 years and so it peeked my interest. Add to this a quarter century of role-playing games and then you have the recipe for a geeky dream – 3D printing miniatures and RPG accessories!

I bought my first 3D printer – an Up Mini! after seeing the results of two models I printed at Shapeways. My Up Mini 3D Printer has been a loyal friend and even though we have had some differences we will never be apart…

I have printed functional things for the home, toys for my daughters and presents for my wife and friends. I truly believe the possibilities are endless with 3d printing and soon we will have Star Trek replicators (we have phones and tablets)…

Sites like Thingiverse and My Mini Factory let you upload and download models for 3D printing which you can also do on our site here. This means you don’t have to be an awesome designer to get what you want.

And for designers, places like Shapeways and My Mini Factory let you upload your model for others to print too.

So where are we headed?

Like the CD Rom drive and Blu-ray player, it won’t be long until the 3D printer is a typical appliance in many households across the country and this is one of our goals at 3D Matters – to bring you cheap 3D printers and 3D printer filament so that you can print the future!
