This episode is full of weird 3D printers, starting with a 3D printing simulation from Spee3D. Tom and Stefan further talk about a new dynamic build platform concept to reduce the support amount and a Japanese project that converts a 3D printer into a production line plus the Thermorph concept that allows automatically folding 3D prints using a smart combination of PLA and TPU. Then they discuss the morality of selling a community firmware as their own and that the popular Dragon Hotends that seems to be wiped from the market as a result of SliceEngineerings patent on it. The Q&A section covers the question of when slicers will finally support real CAD data in the form of STEP or IGES files.
