Epic Print of the Week: The Ultimate Test
This week we saw a print float up on 3ders.com and it looks intense. With this one object you can test your printer's abilities for just about everything. Overhang, flatness, various shapes, fine details, holes etc. The print is intended to expose the printer's handicaps and as such, increase future success.
