We think @DocProfSky does a great job describing how amazing it is to own a 3D printer in his “Why I LOVE My 3D Printer” presentation at Ignite in Phoenix, AZ.

In front of a crowd of ~850 Ignite enthusiasts from the Phoenix metro area DocProfSky shares his enthusiasm of 3D printing and talks about the MakerBot Cupcake CNC printer. The crowd gives him a standing ovation, a first ever at Ignite Phoenix.
