‘Pick of the Month’ posts is a series of blog articles that our editorial team will write once per month, picking the 3D printing miniatures that according to them are worth being showcased again.
We contact the artists, ask them interesting facts about the miniatures or models and bring these facts directly to you, our reader.


The 3D printing miniatures featured in these articles are those that manage to gain popularity in a relatively short amount of time. And if you’re out of ideas for your next 3D print, this is where you will find inspiration.

We will group the models by categories, for an easier navigation.
