Why are you giving advice for Total 3D printing?

Mastering 3D printers is a constant journey of learning, exploring, trying, failing - and I've had a fair share of all. What always helped me the most when I got stuck was the wonderful online 3D printing community. It is an endless source of knowledge and support. I hope to be able to give some of it back now.

What is the coolest thing you've seen someone make with a 3D printer in-person or online?

Whenever I see someone printing real functional prosthetics on a 3D printer, I am in absolute awe. Even my most ambitious projects seem like a child's play compared to that.

What is the coolest thing you've made with a 3D printer?

Last year, I printed a bunch of artsy, colorful planters with abstract geometric designs. I still have them on my terrace, and all my friends and relatives compliment them, so I guess I can be proud of this project.

What is your favorite 3D printer?

I am currently exploring Dremel DigiLab 3D45, and it looks like my new favorite. It is perfectly user-friendly and very flexible. It's the type of machine that genuinely inspires you to enhance your creativity and improve your skills in every regard.

Where do you see 3D printing 10 years in the future?

In every household, of course! This technology has so much potential in our everyday lives. Moreover, I am confident 3D printers will also soon find their way to space. They should certainly be part of the Mars journey.

Anycubic Photon vs Wanhao D7: Which is Best?

Our Anycubic Photon vs Wanhao D7 comparison is going to put these two DLP resin 3D printers against each other.

These printers are a bit different than some of the other 3D printer models we have reviewed in the past. Resin DLP printers use liquid resin to produce detailed prints. They use a process called Vat Polymerization to print objects and the Anycubic Photon and Wanhao D7 are two popular printers in this category.

So, let’s find out how these 3D printers compare against each other and discover which one is the better model to buy.

Main Differences Between Anycubic Photon vs Wanhao D7

The main differences between Anycubic Photon vs Wanhao D7 are:

  • Anycubic Photon has its own dedicated software, whereas the Wanhao D7 does not have one.
  • Anycubic Photon has a build volume of 115 x 64 x
