The Make-O-Matic from one our all time favorite shows, Futurama! Their "magical" 3D printer can be seen in the "Forty Percent Leadbelly" episode.
In this epic diptych odcast, we take an in-depth look at some common misconceptions with 3D printing, and discuss how its media and pop culutral portrayal influences this conversation. We also discuss many of our personal experiences with misconceptions, and how it has affected us as 3D printing community member and artists.
We discuss a number of video clips, images, events, etc. in these podcasts, so reference the links below to view any of the outside material we mention!
