Nick is just a 1st year Mechanical Engineering student at Imperial College London that was looking for a summer job, and was lucky enough to stumble upon one of Hakan’s ads on Facebook. He has been using Solidworks for 5 years but seretly adores Maya, and believes that people who like Rhino are crazy. Best advice he has to give would be to “Enable Solidworks Backup” and “Transparent filament is the best filament”.

Right from the start the printing industry has been at the core of how we keep ourselves up to date with the world around us. Print media as a forum has benefited us by means of bringing us the news day in, day out, it has entertained us by means of marketing done and many more avenues as well. Some today will remember the guzzling sound of the dot matrix – but that was only the beginning.

To some of us it became a necessity, to others it became a hobby and then some.


However today where technology runs the world, technology has evolved manifold and thus so has 3D printing. Its evolution has been from the days of the dot matrix to the introduction of color printing then finer laser printing, glossy art printing and now finally we see many applications of the same in the form of 3D Printing. And even though it hit the markets just recently the applications, advantages and uses seem never ending. Throughout industry it’s practical applications and even for the private individual 3D printing offers a world of uses.

So many that its users seem to want more and more information on how to effectively put to use their new lean machine. Materializing their thoughts, their designs and much more 3D printer users often go out on the lookout for more – well you’ve come to the right place.
