Impressed would be an understatement.  As a content creator and maker I work with many different 3D printers and additive manufacturing technologies.  When I had to make the tough decision to choose one printer as my “Work From Home” printer the choice was clear: the TAZ SideKick. It is reliable, has a small foot print, and provides amazing print quality without making much noise at all.
