Here is something interesting and fun you can print on your 3D printer in order to get a good idea what is the level of quality and precision your device offers. 3DBenchy is a specially designed 3D model of a boat for testing and benchmarking 3D printers. It is a small recognizable object that you can download for free, make and share. There is a dedicated website with details on what should you use as printing settings as well as what the exact dimensions of the 3D printed object should be as well as some more details about the test itself. So you might want to give it a try and print the 3DBenchy boat on your device and see what you will get as a result.

Out team is a fan of the Kyosho Mini-Z small scale RC model cars and since they are our hobby like 3D printing is we’ve decided to combine the two, so we started making some parts for the Mini-Z remote controlled model cars to be 3D printer. Some of our designs are already available on Thingiverse for free everyone to try printing and using them and if you do you are welcome to share your feedback. We have also started a group called Kyosho Mini-Z for people that love 3D printing and Mini-Z RC cars, so you are welcome to check it out and join the group. Our Mini-Z 3D designs will be included in the group, so that can be an easy way to keep track of new things and communicate with other interested users as well. We are currently working on some more designs covering the Kyosho Mini-Z MR-02 and MR-03 rear wheel drive models as well as the MA-010/MA-020 AWD models, so stay tuned for more.
