GearBest GeeeTech E180 – The MonoPrice Mini Killer

In this episode, we will be unboxing the GeeeTech (that’s right with three “e”’s) from GearBest as when picked the little guy to review, I was looking for a MonoPrice Mini killer! As the MonoPrice Mini like the Cerality CR-10 (of the large scale) has been the reigning king of the small scale printers. However as I have said with the Creality CR-10, the reaign of all kings mst come to an end sooner then later and the MonoPrice Mini has been a great printer, is there better now? Well we are going to find as we start messing around with this little guy and so far I have been impressed, but need a little time under my belt to say for sure.

3D Printed Project – The Magic 3D Printed Nut Thing!

Please visit ift.tt/1PJb2UK for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode, we will be taking a look at the “Magic Nut Thing” as a vision that came to me in a waking dream, well in reality I was driving or something but the “waking dream” I figured would get more views. However as they say necessity is the mother of invention and success has many fathers until they all go to the Maury Povich Show with DNA in hand. However this is one of those things that I did a “self” why didn’t we think of this before! As the neat thing is, it is ambidextrous so nut or bolt doesn’t matter as one model fits all. On top of the fact if you want to glue them in you can but don’t have to and the second (containing the nut) hides the bolt from the first adding not only a nice cosmetic feature but all a safety one too!
