Introducing the 3D Printer Discussion Forum

3d printer forum

Notice: We’ve closed down the discussion forum since posting this.

Here at, we get lots of people contacting us with all sorts of questions about such things as 3D printers, scanners, services, software, education and so on. We’re happy to help where we can, but we just don’t have all the answers. However, we’re sure that our many thousands of daily readers have the knowledge that could help others out.

In order to facilitate getting together those with questions and those with answers, we’re introducing a discussion forum we’ve just today installed on our site. You can click here to get to it, or just click the link you’ll find in the navigation bar above.

It’s a sophisticated piece of software with most all the bells and whistles you’ll find in other forums. The only thing it’s missing is you. Please head over to the forum and register, and then start your own topic, or join in on any existing conversations to which you wish to contribute.

Let’s get the party started!

Discussion forums are a bit awkward to start. It’s like going to a dance party…the floor is empty with most people not wanting to be the first to step out on the floor. But once someone does, the party gets started. Our brand new forum is empty too, looking for the first intrepid souls to get the party going.

So don’t be shy. Even if you don’t have anything you think is important enough to say, just head over to the Everything Else subforum, introduce yourself and say something about what you’re doing, or would like to be doing, in 3D printing. It won’t be long until you have many new friends.

And we’re sure many will be able to avail themselves of our free Classified Ads section. Do you have a used 3D printer you’d like to sell, is your company looking for an engineer…

I’m sure there are going to be some glitches in the forum software as you can only test so much without real users. So, if you see any problems, please contact us with the issue and we’ll get right on it.

Have fun! And I hope it becomes a great resource for you.

    Our thanks go out to our very first forum poster, Christian. He’s looking for a recommendation on a $500 range 3D printer. If you can help him out, go here.
