Anna talks about the changes we’ve seen this year, touching a bit on some of the topics that she mentioned in the State of 3D printing earlier this week.  She then explains how we use the special models which were designed specifically for our 3D printer Shootout. Testing isn’t as simple as just printing a file and guessing which one looks a bit better. We have data collection methods and a team of experts that, in some cases, are going onto their third year of testing printers for us.
