We are back!

After an unexpected hiatus (details inside) the SimGeeks take on a topic they are both extremely passionate about... 3D Printing! What printer should you buy, how does it work, is it expensive, what materials do you need, where do you find printable files? It's all here in our longest episode yet. So grab a beverage and settle in or maybe jump in your car for a nice sunset cruise while the Sim Geeks answer your 3D printing questions.
