I'm Baschz, an omnimedial visual artist, designer and curator from Rotterdam, with a profound love for hand made things with a mass production look and feel.
I have played around with 3D printing a little bit in 2010 when I was invited to join an exhibition about 3D printing. Loved it, but couldn't afford a machine at the time and even though I could go to several maker spaces in the area, I knew I should have something like this right next to me, not outside and on (semi) appointment, so I could tweak and play 24/7. Also I didn't have a lot of 3D modeling experience and the idea of learning new and technical programs wasn't something I was looking forward to.
Then, end January 2017, while shopping for this fantastic modeling clay, I stumbled upon a video of a kids 3D printer. This made me curious about what prices were for these mini printers. To my surprise and joy they went for as low as €200 and they were supposed to be good as well? Nice! Knowing a little bit about the big evolution of more intuitive modeling programs, I started to become very interested.
So I looked around and quickly found out the Monoprice Select Mini was the thing to get, so I did. And I haven't almost had a day not using the printer and learning a bit of modeling. The clay I haven't touched yet ..

Mandy; my first 3D printer. I have more, but for some reason Youmagine doesn't let me add them and gives me an error ..
