#3DBenchy is here!

So what’s the big deal you might ask? Well, if you have ever considered buying a 3D printer or had issues with the one you already own, 3DBenchy is for you! If you want to learn more about 3D printing or want to see how your 3D printer compares to others, 3DBenchy is for you!

This cute little boat reveals most all deficits your 3D printer might have, whether it’s by a flawed design, issues with your particular printer or settings that are incorrect.
In contrast to his jolly appearance 3DBenchy is a devious design of nooks and crannies, angles, bridging and circles that will reveal the true performance of any 3D printer that is trying to print him.

At you find all the information needed to analyse your results, compare results from different printers, see what results other skippers are getting – and of course, you will find 3DBenchy as a free downloadable 3D model in the form of an STL-file.
So why are you still reading this!? ; )

Download – Print – Analyse and Share your 3DBenchy so that you and the rest of us can become better at 3D printing and so that 3D printer manufacturers can get feedback on how to improve and make even better products.

Even if you do not have a 3D printer on your horizon you can still learn a lot about 3D printing by checking out
