Recently, I wrote that the 2016 Mazda Miata was all about connecting with the road. But, if I’m honest, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is, too.

If the Miata is connecting with the road, it does so in a familial, gentle way, like how your grandmother envelopes you in a big, soft and warm hug. The way the 4C Spider connects you to the road is like how a brain surgeon’s drill connects with your skull — in a fast, loud and brutal way.

That isn’t to say it’s bad, though; it’s quite the opposite, really. However, where you’d just need to be a driving enthusiast to enjoy the Miata, you’ll need to be both a driving enthusiast and an insane person to enjoy the Alfa. Thankfully, I am both those things. Read more…

3D Printer Review: the Afinia H800 Takes 3D Printing to School

3D Printer Review: the Afinia H800 Takes 3D Printing to School

By Davide Sher

Writing a 3D printer review can be complicated. On the one hand, you want to be as clear and straightforward as you can in your analysis. On the other, you don’t want to disappoint the companies behind the machines because you know that they are generally really hard working people with a great passion for what they do.

3D Printer Review: The Cube 3, an Amazing 3D Printer Desperately Seeking its Market

3D Printer Review: The Cube 3, an Amazing 3D Printer Desperately Seeking its Market

By Davide Sher

A posthumous review of 3D Systems’ now departed Cube 3 3D printer.
Thanks to 3DZ, one of Europe’s leading 3D Systems distribution groups, (covering Italy and many regions of Southern Europe), I had a chance to use and test a Cube 3 3D printer for a few weeks. The first impression is that, for engineering and part quality, this is, or perhaps we should say “was”, the best consumer desktop 3D printer (with dual jets) on the market.
The reason why I suspect that 3D Systems has not sold enough of them, other than the fact that the consumer 3D printing market is still a “Chimera”, is that it was too much of a closed platform.…
