3D Printed Replacement Parts

I am sure that you have been there: you owned a product or device that you ended up throwing away since some small, insignificant looking plastic part had broken.

Tripodmaker Review – A Large Delta 3D Printer Put to the Test

Today we are celebrating a first here on the blog: while we have reviewed several 3D printers before, the Tripomaker review is our very first delta 3D printer review. Ever since I started visiting 3D printing fairs a few years ago, I have been intrigued by delta 3D printers. Their architecture looks exotic and they clearly still constitute a minority in the desktop 3D printing market.
