I own a Tiko.
3D printing is a method of creating a object.
Just as a printer paints ink onto paper, a 3D printer paints a plastic-like substance into a surface and then builds layers on top. Think of it like a pastry bag but in three dimensions. So instead of a gingerbread house with icing being painted on top, think of the entire house being made of that icing.
This is just to house some 3d printing/scanning-related notes.
This isn't the full extent of my notes, which are scattered across who knows where. Oh well.
Project Titan - A Recycling Desktop 3D Printer is a nice idea, except nobody should be using plastic bottles in the first place.

- Wow, their website looks like it was designed by engineers.
- Oh gods, another terribad website.
Websites with models ∞
A "model" is the 3-dimensional digital picture that is used to print the real object.
Online stores which sell materials ∞
A surface -- Probably unnecessary.
