Crash Course Diagrams: The diagrams, videos, and photos in the Crash Course were designed to be fun and educational. Our spokes-bot Dudlee shows off the correct way to orient a model for 3D printing.
One of our favorite videos in the 3D Printing Crash Course is this whipped cream demonstration to help illustrate the difference between 2D and 3D printing - learning doesn't get any more fun (or delicious) than this!
