I have recently purchased a 3D printer, I have been doing a lot of printing and calibrating.  I love watching a Grumpy Cat made from nothing.


These printers work by extruding plastic in layers and can be very finicky as with all emerging technologies.

A  gift should be simple to use and not have a high learning curve.  What could have less of a technological learning curve than the first “pencils” of 3D printing than the hammer and a chisel.  No electricity or technology needed Just some tools and a piece of wood or stone and you can find the object hidden within.  Go to  You can find a wide range of products from the Basic Stone Starter kit at 28.95 to a professional Stone Carvers set at 260.00, for that special sculptor in your life.
