Episode 019: 3D Printing

Personal 3D printers are the new hotness among nerdy hobbyists and tech-oriented DIYers. You’ve probably been curious about what they can do, and maybe even tempted to pick one up — but should you? We ask Tested‘s Will Smith to explain the current landscape, discuss budget and investment, and basically tell Dan whether he should get one for Kat for Christmas. Will also tries out some all-new You Must Choose options, and Chance Fortran meets his maker.
