    I want to take a moment to thank you for stumbling upon the MatterHackers forum and contributing to the betterment of 3D printing. This space will grow and develop into a place for people to gather and learn more about 3D printing. The hope is that this becomes knowledge base and a broad platform for all involved in 3D printing (and those looking to get into the technology) to share your experiences with the intent of providing information for others to succeed with the technology.

    Anything at all we can help with please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
