Before this week I had two impressions of 3D printers. You have the huge, expensive machines that take days to print and cost more than I'd earn in a year. Then you have the other printers that, whilst affordable, print fuzzy and poor quality items. When I was tasked with using a cheap 3D printer I assumed it would be the latter, and I'd be lucky to make out feet from faces. It would turn out that this assumption couldn't have been further from the truth.
"So I hear you have experience with LEGO." This sentence marks the day where I realised I had reached my peak of happiness. I had spent every moment of my childhood building and constructing LEGO, so when I was handed a huge box of not only robotics, but LEGO robotics, I was overjoyed.
