In the 3D printing landscape theres a great deal of hardware to choose from, especially Fused This rook is normally used by Make: magazine as a torture test for SLA resin printers, which would make it an interesting challenge for the FFF filament printers present at 3dexpo. All competitors printed this model at 50mm height without supports. This was the Torture Test used during the 3D Print Weekend at MAKE HQ to test over 15 different printers.
The model was designed by one of the testers during the weekend, Cliff Biffle, and is meant to push your printer to its limits!
