How Not to Buy a 3D Printer

On the chopmeister's website, a guide on what to look for when buying 3D printers and definitely what you should steer clear of.

As with any emerging technology, it didn't take long for people to start inventing catchphrases, wrapping completely trivial features into mysterious techno babble, and generally exploiting everything they can think of to sway a non-suspecting onlooker into buying their product.

There's ample proof of this on almost any 3d printer product page on the web. If I could take a random sample of those product pages, it would probably take hours to find one which doesn't have any such stuff.

Time to call bullshit!
