3D printing is gaining momentum thanks to the wide availability of 3D printers for any pocket.

If, until recently, 3D printing was an activity that few could afford, it is now being used by people with various professional backgrounds. This is mostly due to the increased coverage it receives from online mass media outlets and big companies that specialize in 3D printing.

The additive manufacturing is still relatively new so people are curious to learn how to handle it and what can one do once it gets to the grips.

But before that, you’re gonna mess up. However, don’t despair. You’re not alone in your ‘misery’. Many have messed up before you as well.

Why Do 3D Printing Fails Happen?

Failures happen all the time. There are different factors that a 3D print can fail: the 3D printer settings, incorrect bed leveling, wrong build material for the 3D model, ignoring the 3D printer specs, and much more that a beginner or anybody for that matter should keep in mind before turning the 3D printer on.

But let’s look at this from another point of view. If everything went according to the book and everybody succeeded, would you still be so much intrigued by the technology? We bet you won’t. It’s human nature to test one’s abilities into doing something that others have failed, to see how the things will go in his case.

We’ve rummaged through the Internet and found 20 of the funniest and awkward 3D printing fails that you can see below. Take a moment to scroll down and see all of them.
