What 3D-Printed Cake Tastes Like

Sugar Labs substitutes extruded plastic for sugar, and makes a new kind of dessert.

The Invasion of the German Board Games

The Real Reasons Why the Government Shut Down

The Entirely Rational Basis For Turkeys Move Into Syria

3D-printed cakes and cake toppers display themselves. The one on the left was made in collaboration with Duff Goldman, otherwise known as the Ace of Cakes.

LAS VEGASCall them Cakerbots. Adding to the growing list of things you can 3D print (toys, human organs,pizza that will be eaten on Mars, etc.) is a machine promising that, with it, you can print yourself some dessert.

In the 3D Printing section of the Consumer Electronics Show, one of the consistently busy booths has belonged to 3D SystemssSugar Lab. And to, in particular, the booths display of elaborate cakes and candies whose confectionary components have been constructed inside a 3D printer.

The ChefJet and ChefJet Pro print, basically, sugar: They work byapplying a mixture of alcohol and waterto wet and then harden the sweet stuff.The devices focus on crystalline sugar, combined with the capabilities of the printers themselves, results in forms that would be next to impossible to construct with human handslittle sculptures that double as dessert. The printersstart at more than $4,000for models that print with black-and-white food coloring; color modelswill likely retail for closer to $10,000.As Sugar Labs co-founder, Kyle von Hasseln, told me, the target markets for the machines are bakeries, restaurants, and event planners.

So, basically: The plastic couple that sometimes tops wedding cakes? That can now be edible. The princess atop little Jennifers birthday cake? Same. Architectural confectionery isenjoying a renaissanceof late; you could see 3D printing fitting right into that trend. Indeed, the towering cake you can see in the picture at the top of this post was made in collaboration withCharm City Cakess Duff Goodman, ofAce of Cakesfame.

The construction components are fitting: Von Hasseln and his wife, Liz, are trained architects. They actually stumbled onto the Sugar Lab idea when they were experimenting with 3D-printer-friendly materials (sawdust, that kind of thing) for fabricating architectural models. We tried sugar, Kyle von Hasseln told me, just because it was cheapand then we realized that if we modified it, we could eat it.

And what about making the eating … actually pleasant? How do you make construction materials taste good? We got into the material science of it, Von Hasseln says. A chef probably could have gotten it really quickly, he laughs, but it took him and Liz several tries, he says, before they got a formula that would combine structural integrity with good flavor.

So then whatdo3D-printed confections taste like? I sampled Sugar Labs chocolate offering. And the stuff tasted pretty much like traditionally manufactured chocolate doesexcept a little less sweet, a little bit drier, a little more crumbly. You know how chocolate, after it melts and rehardens, has a slightly different flavor and texture than it did before? The 3D-printed chocolate is like that.

But what it lacks in tastiness, it makes up for in prettiness. Imagine being served this towering thing for dessert.

Eels use electricity in more complex ways than anyone had imagined.

When cities compete to attract big employers, the country as a whole suffers.

Since Amazon announced last year that it is going to build a second corporate campus, cities238 of themin North America, in three countriesquickly started courting the company. They scrambled to propose the most generous package of financial incentives they could muster, in hopes of luring the online-retailing and cloud-computing giant.

On Thursday, Amazonannouncedthat it had whittled its list down to 20 finalist cities spanning the country, from Los Angeles to Austin to Boston and Miami. What does the future hold for the lucky winner? In Amazonsrequest for proposals, it dangled the promise of hiring up to 50,000 full-time employees (at an average salary of more than $100,000 a year) over the next 10 or 15 years, and spending $5 billion in the process of executing the project.

Their peaceful premises and intricate rule systems are changing the way Americans playand helping shape an industry in the process.

In a development that would have been hard to imagine a generation ago, when video games were poised to take over living rooms, board games are thriving. Overall, the latest available data shows that U.S. salesgrewby 28 percent between the spring of 2016 and the spring of 2017. Revenues areexpectedto rise at a similar rate into the early 2020slargely,saysone analyst, because the target audience has changed from children to adults, particularly younger ones.

Much of this success is traceable to the rise of games that, well, get those adults acting somewhat more like children. Clever, low-overhead card games such as Cards Against Humanity, Secret Hitler, and Exploding Kittens (A card game for people who are into kittens and explosions) have sold exceptionally well. Games like these haveproliferated on Kickstarter, where anyone with a great idea and a contact at an industrial printing company can circumvent the usual toy-and-retail gatekeepers who green-light new concepts. (The largest project category on Kickstarteris Games,and board games make upabout three-quartersof those projects.)

When truth itself feels uncertain, how can a democracy be sustained?

In God We Trust, goes the motto of the United States. In God, and apparently little else.

Only a third of Americans now trust their government to do what is righta decline of 14 percentage points from last year, according to anew reportby the communications marketing firm Edelman. Forty-two percent trust the media, relative to 47 percent a year ago. Trust in business and non-governmental organizations, while somewhat higher than trust in government and the media, decreased by 10 and nine percentage points, respectively. Edelman, which for 18 years has been asking people around the world about their level of trust in various institutions, has never before recorded such steep drops in trust in the United States.

Immigration isnt the only sticking point.

When the government shuts down, the politicians pipe up.

No sooner hada midnight deadline passedwithout congressional action on a must-pass spending bill than lawmakers launched their time-honored competition over who gets the blame for their collective failure. The Senate floor became a staging ground for dueling speeches early Saturday morning, and lawmakers of both partiesas well as the White House and political-activist groupsflooded the inboxes of reporters with prewritten statements castigating one side or the other.

Led by President Trump, Republicans accused Senate Democrats of holding hostage the entire government and health insurance for millions of children over their demands for an immigration bill. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators, the White House said in a statement issued moments before the clock struck midnight. In a series of Saturday-morningtweets, Trump said Democrats had given him a nice present for the first anniversary of his inauguration. The White House vowed that no immigration talks would occur while the government is closed, and administration officials sought to minimize public anger by allowing agencies to use leftover funds and by keeping national parks and public lands partially accessible during the shutdownin effect, bynot shutting downthe government as fully as the Obama administration did in 2013.

Nearly a century of mistrust of America and an obsession with defeating the Kurds sparked its operation in Afrin.

In the 19th century, Britain, France, and Russia occupied or fostered the independence of Greece, Serbia, Romania, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Tunisia, and Egypteach one part of the Ottoman Empire. In 1920, the victors of World War I forced the Ottomans to sign the T
reaty of Svres, which detached what would become Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Israel from the House of Osman. The agreement also granted the French a zone of influence in the southeastern portion of Anatolia, adjacent to its Mandate for Lebanon and Syria, while the Italians were ceded an area that included southern and central parts of Anatolian territory, including Antalya and Konya. The Greeks established a protectorate in Smyrna, now known as Izmir.

The U.S. vice president promised peace in the countrys newly recognized capital, but his itinerary showed that a deal is far beyond reach.

JERUSALEMMike Pence was greeted in Israels center of government on Monday in the way of a dear friend. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu beamed as he stood with the American vice president in his offices. I have had the privilege over the years of standing here with hundreds of leaders and welcomed them, all of them, to Israels capital, Jerusalem, he said. This is the first time that I stand here where both leaders can say those three words: Israels capital, Jerusalem.

It is my great honor, on behalf of the president of the United States, to be in Israels capital, Jerusalem, Pence replied, similarly emphasizing the wordcapital. But also, I look forward to speaking with you in detail about the opportunity for peace. When President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israels capital and vowed to relocate the American embassy from Tel Aviv in December, he did so convinced … that we would create an opportunity to move on in good-faith negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Pence said.

The Senate struck a deal to reopen the government on Monday morningbut without any help from President Trump.

If ever there were a time for a dealmaker in Washington, this weekend was it. Friday, as a shutdown loomed, it seemed as though Republicans and Democrats would be able to reach some accommodation to fund the government, but in the wake of that failure,the mood turned bitter over the weekend.

With leaders in Congress at an impasse, the most logical person to step in and broker an arrangement was the president of the United States. Thats usually the case, but its especially true now, with a president whose name, thanks to his first book, is practically synonymous with deals. And yet, Donald Trump remained strangely absent. Oh, sure, the president was tweeting, but he offered mostly uncharacteristically bland restatements of the White House line that it was all Democrats fault. After meeting with Democratic leader Chuck Schumer on Friday, Trump stayed largely on the sidelines.

Advocates are tracking new developments in neonatal research and technologyand transforming one of Americas most contentious debates.

The first time Ashley McGuire had a baby, she and her husband had to wait 20 weeks to learn its sex. By her third, they found out at 10 weeks with a blood test. Technology has defined her pregnancies, she told me, from the apps that track weekly development to the ultrasounds that show the growing child. My generation has grown up under an entirely different world of science and technology than theRoegeneration, she said. Were in a culture that is science-obsessed.

Activists like McGuire believe it makes perfect sense to be pro-science and pro-life. While she opposes abortion on moral grounds, she believes studies of fetal development, improved medical techniques, and other advances anchor the movements arguments in scientific fact. The pro-life message has been, for the last 40-something years, that the fetus is a life, and it is a human life worthy of all the rights the rest of us have, she said. Thats been more of an abstract concept until the last decade or so. But, she added, when youre seeing a baby sucking its thumb at 18 weeks, smiling, clapping, it becomes harder to square the idea that that 20-week-old, that unborn baby or fetus, is discardable.

Corporate goliaths are taking over the U.S. economy. Yet small breweries are thriving. Why?

The monopolies are coming. Inalmost every economic sector, including television, books, music, groceries, pharmacies, and advertising, a handful of companies control a prodigious share of the market.

The beer industry has been one of the worst offenders. The refreshing simplicity of Blue Moon, the vanilla smoothness of Boddingtons, the classic brightness of a Pilsner Urquell, and the bourbon-barrel stouts of Goose Islandall are owned by two companies: Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors. As recently as 2012, this duopoly controllednearly 90 percentof beer production.

This sort of industry consolidationtroubles economists. Research has found that the existence of corporate behemoths stamps out innovation and hurts workers. Indeed, between 2002 and 2007, employment at breweries actually declined in the midst of an economic expansion.

Allegations against the comedian are proof that women are angry, temporarily powerfuland very, very dangerous.

Sexual mores in the West have changed so rapidly over the past 100 years that by the time you reach 50, intimate accounts of commonplace sexual events of the young seem like science fiction: You understand the vocabulary and the sentence structure, but all of the events take place in outer space. Youre just too old.

This was my experience readingthe accountof one young womans alleged sexual encounter with Aziz Ansari, published by the websiteBabethis weekend. The world in which it constituted an episode of sexual assault was so far from my own two experiences of near date rape (which took place, respectively, during the Carter and Reagan administrations, roughly between the kidnapping of the Iran hostages and the start of the Falklands War) that I just couldnt pick up the tune. But, like the recentNew Yorkerstory Cat Personabout a soulless and disappointing hookup between two people who mostly knew each other through textsthe account has proved deeply resonant and meaningful to a great number of young women, who have responded in large numbers on social media, saying that it is frighteningly and infuriatingly similar to crushing experiences of their own. It is therefore worth reading and, in its way, is an important contribution to the present conversation.

For rising models in one of the largest favelas of Rio de Janeiro, fashion is an opportunity for self-actualization.

Though it may seem like a dystopian TV series, this is a documentary, and its message is clear: We are all being watched.

The overbearing queen bee boss stereotype is a toxic feedback loop.

Husband-and-wife architectural designers Kyle and Liz offer a3D sugar printing service, and create rather beautiful geometric shapes out of sugar.

The Sugar Lab started when we were graduate students. We wanted to make our friend Chelsea a birthday cake, but we didnt have an oven, so we decided to try to 3D print a cake instead. After a period of trial and error that lasted well beyond her actual birthday, we managed to print Chelsea a tiny cupcake topper that spelled her name in cursive sugar. She loved it! We thought other people might like 3D printed sugar, too, so when we graduated, we started The Sugar Lab officially, in our studio here in Silver Lake.

I was disappointed that Kyle and Liz didnt share any details of their printer. If youre looking for a more open (if far less active) sugar-printing project, be sure to check out EMSLsCandyFab. [viaHacked Gadgets]

Joshua Lankfords 3D Cake Printer Could Become the New Paradigm for Elaborate Cake Creations

byEddie KrassensteinAug 24, 20143D Printers3D Printing

Weve seen several 3D printers hit the market with the goal of printing food. 3D SystemsChefjetcan print extremely detailed sugary objects at great speed, whileNatural Machines Foodiniis capable of printing entire meals. Then there are several 3D chocolate printers that have recently hit the market. Without a doubt, 3D printing and food are coming together faster than most people had originally believed they would. The reason? These machines are capable of fabricating almost perfect food creations that both look and taste great.

We have only just broken the surface though. In the coming months and years we will surely see more specialty based 3D food printers emerge, as more and more individuals and business see the potential that lies in the computer aided production of food.

One man named Joshua Lankford, has come up with an idea for what could turn the cake baking industry upside down, if successfully brought to market. A 3D printer that he calls the 3D Cake Creator, would be able to print out entire decorative cakes with a push of a button. While the idea still has not been turned into a reality, Lankford seems pretty determined to make it come to fruition. Im very low on resources in terms of finding ways to execute this project, but I thought it was important to put it out there where more experienced minds can collaborate and make it a reality, Lankford told .

Lankford, a market researcher by trade, came up with this idea about a year ago, when he and others held an ethnographic study with kids aged 9 to 11 years old, about their views on health, wellness, indulgence, and most importantly, the question of what would make a birthday party special? Students were asked to bring cake ideas with them, that they had either come up with on their own, or  that they found by searching around the internet.

What we saw is that about 90% of the cakes they wanted for their next birthday were 3D. No one brought in a sheet cake with a picture of Clash of Clans on it they wanted a Clan Castle made of cake with little soldiers fighting alongside the castle walls.

Most small bakeries, like the ones you would typically find within grocery stores, do not have the ability to create such elaborate cakes. Their employees are usually not professional confectioners, and their equipment is not of the highest quality. Having been intrigued by 3D printing, I had a moment where I realized that grocery store bakeries could Have their cake and eat it too, explained Lankford. What if a student only had to load a design, and allow a 3D printer to do the rest?

When the idea popped into his head, Lankford proceeded to scribble down a quick design for what he thought could become the future of cake creating (a more detailed design can be seen below).

I realized that batter as a medium is incredibly cheap, and compared to filament, it could be the cheapest 3D printing material available yet, said Lankford. Sure no one is going to prototype in cake, but it could be a practical way to get crazy with cake design.

The 3D Cake Creator would work by utilizing an X/Y plotter, similar to one you would find on a Cartesian FDM 3D printer. It would be sent instructions from a PC, and instead of printing in filament like most 3D printers, this machine would print using standard cake batter. This batter is extruded and plotted onto a build platform, which slowly moves into and out of an open oven. As it passes through the oven, it is cooked, and then the cooked portion slowly moves out of the oven to cool, while the upper (newly laid down layers) are still baking. Once the entire cake descends fully out of the oven, it will automatically shut itself off.

While the idea seems quite brilliant, Lankford does point out several weaknesses in his concept, which he hopes to account for soon:

If the cake batter bakes in layers, one might end up with a crunchy cake, rather than a soft, moist cake. This may be resolved through batter formulation, but this runs the risk of alienating people who prefer low ingredient count, natural desserts.

The open oven would output a lot of heat, and due to the moving platform, it might not be consistent in baking each layer of cake

Some sort of design validation is required to account for the physics of cake as a material. One couldnt put a large item on a thin base.

All in all, the idea sounds pretty legitimate, and we will certainly keep an eye on this project, which is currently listed onhackaday.  If this project does come to fruition, the decorative icing could be printed on withthis recently launched 3D printer.

In the coming months and years, we will begin to see more and more 3D printers that take a specific profession or hobby, and in turn provide a way of creating a computer aiding method of creation. This certainly wont be the last 3D food printer idea that we see, catered to an individual area of culinary arts.

in september 2013, 3D printing company3D systemsacquiredthe sugar lab, the husband-and-wife start-up micro-design firm of liz and kyle von hasseln dedicated to creating bespoke, 3D printed edible confections from real sugar. working together, the two parties areredefining and expanding the possibilities of creating sweet indulgences at home, as well as for commercial applications.

the overlap of technology, food and art is so rich, and the potential for customization and innovation is limitless, saidliz von hasseln, cofounder of the sugar lab. existing commercial applications for printable sugar include complex sculptural cakes for weddings and special events that are made possible only with 3D printing, and customizable confections for bake shops and restaurants. continued von hasseln, we see our technology quickly evolving into a variety of flavors and foods, powered by real food printers for professionals and consumers alike and we could not think of a more qualified partner than 3D systems to help make that a reality.

the ChefJet Pro will deliver full-color 3D prints of sweet treats

on the occasion ofCES 2014, 3D systems has revealed two food printing appliances that will allow you to produce multidimensional consumable shapes of your sweet culinary creations from custom candies, cake toppers and novelty treats. the development of the devices is the result of the sugar labs long term goal to create a 3D printer that catered to the food and service industry.

the ChefJet will deliver single-color prints; while the more advanced ChefJet Pro will dispatch full color prints. both can produce either sugar or milk chocolate confections, in different flavors that include cherry, mint and sour apple, and will be available to the market later this year.

Just because technology makes it possible doesnt mean its a good idea

Technically this is printing 3D edibles. Printing food is still Jetsons territory. Its cool though and I am very curious if organic brown sugar and vegetable base dyes would work with equal bonding and color intensity as the presumably GMO cane sugar and artificial industrial food dye food shown here.

First, it prints in chocolate. Last I checked that was a food. Second, you can print whatever can be designed. I think that having the ability to print insanely detailed structures will interest any designer.

TierTime UpBox 3D Printer Review

Fully enclosed design makes printing quieter and less stinky

Detachable print bed is a little awkward and takes a long time to heat up

occasional printing glitches on some objects.

This powerful, high-quality 3D printer offers a huge build space and excellent software. For those who need to produce large, high-quality prints, it will be a great pick.

Who it is for:Designers or others who need large, high-quality prints.

The $1,899 TierTime UpBox is a high-end 3D printer that offers a lot of features for the serious user, without some of the more off-putting aspects of other printers. The device has a larger print area than most 3D printers, and an enclosed design that makes printing quieter and produces less of the popcorn or burning-plastic smell that other 3D printers leave hovering in the air. It also comes with great software that is simple to use. The UpBox does have some quirks, though: It struggled with some of the fine detail on some of our test prints, and the removable print bed is sometimes awkward to remove and replace.

A square box thats more than 19 inches wide and deep, and 21 inches high, the UpBox is certainly an imposing printer. With a black plastic exterior and orange details, it looks like a modernist sculpture. That certainly ties in with the industrial approach to printing that this device offers: The UpBox is all about professional quality printing in quantity.

The case features two doors: one on the top and one on the front, providing access to the interior. The front door includes a tinted plastic panel that allows for a view of the inside, but only when the LED lighting is turned on. On the right side, a round panel covers the filament spool.

The magic happens inside the case, with a large print bed measuring just over 10 inches wide and 8 inches deep. This provides one of the largest print areas we have seen in a 3D printer  the maximum print size the UpBox can handle is an impressive 10 x 8 x 8 inches, for a total of 640 cubic inches. Compared to the 456 cubic inches that the current (and more expensive) MakerBot Replicator offers, the UpBox feels positively spacious.

Most printers use a glass or metal print bed. The UpBox takes a different approach, with a metal print bed covered by a detachable sheet of perforated plastic. Rather than having to remove a print from a fixed print bed inside the case, you can detach the perforated board after the print is completed, and then remove the print from the board outside the printer. The approach works well, though we did run into some issues when replacing the print bed, which well detail below. The UpBoxs single printhead is located at the top of the case; the print bed rises up to meet it when printing.

One definite plus here is a HEPA air filter built into the UpBoxs case, which cleans and recirculates the air inside the printer case. This definitely helps to get rid of the smells often associated with 3D printing: We didnt detect any of the usual melting plastic or popcorn aromas from printing using ABS or PLA filament. The UpBox is the only 3D printer that we have tested that uses a filter this way, but we wish more did so.

The UpBox can use any 1.75-millimeter filament on a standard spool. There are no chips or special spools that restrict the materials you can use for printing. This means you can use the supported materials (ABS, PLA) or experiment with the new filaments that are now available to simulate materials like wood, stone and others, as well as flexible ones like NinjaFlex. Currently, TierTime supports only PLA and ABS, but it plans to add support for other materials in the future.

The UpBox turned out very-high-quality prints in our tests, consistently producing 3D prints with excellent detail, smooth surfaces and very few glitches. We test our 3D printers using three models: a geometric sculpture, a set of gears and a scan of Rodins The Thinker. The geometric sculpture model is a tough one to print, as it involves a lot of overhangs and sharp edges that test the printers ability to control the movement of the printhead. The UpBox struggled with some of the fine details on this print. The edges and tips of the sculpture were not sharp, with some edges looking more like saw blades than smooth planes. And some of the sculpture surfaces didnt form properly, leading to a few missing parts, like the pointed tips of the sculpture on the bottom of the print.

The set of planetary gears proved to be no issue for the UpBox, though. The 3D-printed parts that form the gears were printed without hassle, and we could assemble them easily. Because these parts have to screw into each other for the model to work, this is a tough test; the prints that many 3D printers produce require a lot of trimming before they will fit. The UpBox produced one of the cleanest prints of this complex model that weve seen, with only a few whiskers of plastic needing to be trimmed from the printed parts. The printed parts fit together easily, including the often finicky screw bolts that hold the final mechanism together.

Rodins classic Thinker sculpture proved to be no challenge for the UpBox: It produced an excellent print of the sculpture from the 3D scan. This print had excellent levels of detail and clean, smooth lines that mirrored the original.

There was little evidence of layering; the different layers of the print were blended smoothly, even on difficult areas such as the shoulders and head that tend to show the layer-cake effect.

It took us about 35 minutes to get the UpBox up and running one of the quicker setup times we have seen. Unpacking the printer and installing the filament is a straightforward process, with plenty of guidance in the manual. The only issue was some confusion over how the filament fed into the printhead. It feeds through a small hole on the right side that isnt labeled or marked. I did find it eventually (right below the fan that cools the printhead), but it took a little time.

MORE:How to Buy the Right 3D Printer

Once the filament is in place and the software is installed, you can run the setup routine. This automatically tests the UpBox, checking the level of the print bed and determining the distance between the printing nozzle and the surface. We had no problems using the automatic setup, which is certainly much easier than the manual process involving manual tweaks and screw adjustments that many similar printers use.

The UpBox has only three buttons, located on its right side. There is no screen here; instead, the printer uses the color of the LED light behind the logo and a strip of LEDs above that to indicate its status (blue for ready, green for heating up, and so on) and the progress of the print. Everything else is controlled through the included Up software.

This software is simple to use and provides the features that 3D printing requires, including the ability to import 3D models in STL format. Other formats are not supported, but there are anumber of online tools availablethat can convert those formats to STL.

Once youve loaded the model, you can scale it, rotate it, shift it on the print platform and easily manipulate it. The software can also combine several 3D models to print at once (a process sometimes called plating), and provides a preview of the model and the 3D-printing process. The preview of the model is cleanly rendered, allowing you to spin the model around and zoom in and out to spot any possible problems.

The Print button starts the printing process, with the software first slicing the model into the layers that the 3D printer will work on one at a time. Youre given an indication of how long printing should take, and how much plastic filament it will use. When you hit OK, the software sends the model to the 3D printer.

The UpBox is unusual in that it can run untethered. Once the Up software has sent the model to the printer itself, you can turn the computer off, and the printer will run on its own. That de
finitely makes it easier to produce larger prints. The Up software can also connect and monitor several printers at once a definite plus for anyone who wants to produce lots of prints.

The UpBox is a very quiet printer. The main noise that you hear while printing is the whoosh of the air filter and a quiet whirring from the mechanisms that move the printhead. Neither of these sounds is audible from more than a few feet away, and they are certainly less obtrusive than the sounds that come from most 3D printers. In fact, the loudest noise the printer makes is the beeping noises it makes when starting or finishing a print. You arent likely to miss those; my cats found them rather annoying.

The UpBoxs removable print bed did cause a few hassles, though. The removable perforated piece of plastic is held in place by a number of metal lugs. You slide it into place, but getting the board into place on these lugs is rather awkward. If you miss one, the bed wont be level.

The print beds distinct style means it needs to be heated to only about 80 degrees Celsius (176 degrees Fahrenheit)  most printers require temperatures higher than 100 C (212 F) and the printer took about 15 minutes to get up to that temperature which is a little longer than most printers take. TierTime told us that its upgrading the UpBox to use a larger power supply that should allow for faster heating, though it didnt provide specifics about the timing. Even with this lower temperature, the prints stick to the perforated board very well perhaps too well, in fact, as it is often hard to remove the prints. We often found ourselves having to remove the print bed and using a metal scraper to lift the plastic off the print bed. TierTime does supply four print-bed boards with each printer, though, so you can start another print while you hack away at the previous one.

The UpBox is a slightly faster printer than most, but the difference is not huge. It took 5 hours and 23 minutes to print our 3D scan of The Thinker on the Turbo preset quality setting and 8 hours and 48 minutes on the Fine preset, the highest-quality setting. Thats a good spread of speeds that compares well with those of other similar printers, like the LulzBot Mini (whose times ranged from 4 hours and 46 minutes to 7 hours) and the SeeMeCNC Orion, whose times ranged from 6 hours and 32 minutes to 17 hours and 32 minutes).

The UpBox is a smart, sophisticated printer that we recommend, particularly for anyone who needs large, high-quality prints. The straightforward software and untethered printing would make it a good pick for an office or design studio that needs to produce a large volume. Its also flexible, and capable of producing large prints and several smaller prints at once. The UpBox isnt glitch-free, though. The sharp edges of our geometric sculpture test proved to be a challenge for it, and the removable print bed is rather frustrating to replace. Still, these are small problems for a large, flexible and well-equipped printer in this price range.
