“BASF BVOH is a new formula of water-soluble support and an alternative to PVA. It allows us to print the same complex geometry but the BVOH now dissolves 3-4 times faster than PVA and is a lot less sticky to the touch. We spend less time on post-processing and less dissolving prints laying around makes me happy!.” – Ken

“I usually use super glue to adhere my printed parts, but sometimes the bond is weak and my props will break along the seam. I love 3D Gloop! because it quickly gives my part a solid bond I can rely on.” – Sarah

“I want to get the Mosaic Pallet because I have a bunch of single extrusion printers at home like the Creality and Prusa. I’d like to have one of them capable of dual printing so I can do some PLA/BVOH combinations. I got pretty good at removing supports but from the testing we’ve done around the shop with BVOH and PLA, I want that at home! No more sore hands and disappointment when I break my minis!” – Felix

“When we got our Ultimaker S3 demo unit for the first time, I knew that this printer would be perfect for my 3D print projects. I would love the Ultimaker S3 as a Christmas gift because of its sleek design, touch-screen compatibility, beginner-friendly features, dual extrusion, and being the perfect size for 3D prints I have in mind. It is like having the luxury of an Ultimaker S5 that’s more “home sized,” rather than industrial-sized. It comes with a little door pre-installed on the front of the printer protects it from tampering, and it comes with all the tools necessary to get started on 3D printing. I’d say it’s the perfect 3D printer for intermediate users, such as myself.” – Laurelle

“I want the Dremel LC40 because it allows me to cut and create intricate designs that would otherwise take hours to cut by hand. Whether it's for presents or my own costuming hobbies, the laser cutter allows me to experiment with different materials and find new ways to combine it with 3D printing. It's also convenient to be able to have a desktop-sized laser cutter that I can set up in my home, with proper ventilation of course. ;)” – Shazzmin
