    I recently upgraded to an iMac Pro to help speed up the 3D modeling work I do. Is anyone else here running one? What do you think are “must have” apps for it?

    3D Printers, anyone?

    I'm just curious if anyone else is working with 3D printers. I've got two that I designed and built that I'm having a lot of fun with. I printed this 8 foot long model of the USS Discovery from the movie, "2001: A Space Odyssey."
