No two heated beds are the same – in this video, I test which beds have the best chance of getting your prints to stick!

I use a thermal camera to assess heatup times, temperature offsets and how even the 5 different heated beds heat up!

In this video, we compare photogrammetry with a real, structured-light 3D scanner! I look at Detail reproduction, usability, cost and everything else that differentiates these two scanning technologies to help you decide which one is right for you!
