Hey all,

This is my first post here, and I just wanted to thank you all for being so helpful. What a truly amazing community.

Anyway, I have something exciting to announce!

A group of us are putting together the biggest, most up-to-date and comprehensive report about the state of open-source 3D printing technologies. It will give the community a lot more exposure and also help people who are just getting into 3D printing figure out where to start. It will be a big benefit to experienced people too.

It's part of what I'm doing to give back to the community. I already have some pretty cool channels lined up to distribute the report once it's complete.

I need your help.

Even if you only have 5 minutes, would you mind visiting http://3dprintingsurvey.org and putting in your 2 cents?

It will make a huge difference. Your opinion is really valuable right now!

I'm really looking forward to hear what you have to say:




Thank you very much to everyone that has contributed so far, keep them coming!

Add options for the MakerBot boards, firmwares, host & slicing software!

I've added some more, thanks for your input.

Also, the questions don't really make any sense, as they treat software, machine design, and different electronics boards equivalently.

There's still quite a fiew of us on here that are using Gen3 electronics with our Cupcakes. You may want to add that option in for electronics.
