Episode 1517

Paul from Ventura, CA

Paul wants to get into 3D printing as a hobby, but he doesn't want to spend several thousand to get into it. Thoughts? Leo says it depends on what you want to do with it. What Leo recommends is finding a Maker's Space near you (usually at a local library or junior college) and learn how to use them before you invest all the time and money. It's a great way to get the basics down.
