First to Try

There's nothing more exciting than taking a design on your screen and holding it in your hands for the first time. It's also a crucial step to ensure that what you had on your screen can actually be made. While we would love to turn any design into a 3D printed product, we've learned over the years that even 3D printing has its limits (we're not immune the laws of physics). To increase transparency and set the right expectations for you and your customers, new products in your shop that haven't been printed with a high degree of confidence get a 'First To Try' badge. Enlist your friends and fans to help you make the idea a reality!
