Functional Print: Product photography stand

I received some feedback recently that suggested I work on improving the photo quality of printed parts I use in reference to print quality etc. It was a fair point and one that I hadn’t yet put much thought into.

Functional Print: Grippy Doorstop

Functional Print: Soldering wire holder

Functional print: Peugeot Boxer headlight dust cap

Kirigami Bed by Funssor Review

Intro Have you noticed how much the stock z axis assemble flexes on your Voron zero? Whilst this never really affected my prints, it drove me mad when levelling the bed.
