Ring in the New Year, guys. It’s party time! And since we’re wrapping up another successful year, we decided to put together a blog post about most popular 3D Printing and 3D Printed Miniatures that dominated this year.

It’s not an easy task, we must say. There is too much cool stuff that has been shared during these 365 days. You managed to awe and surprise us every time. It is a true joy to see you enjoy 3D printing and share the result with other people as passionate about the technology as we all are.

2017 has truly been a successful year for all of us at Gambody. We were thrilled to learn that one of our models entered Gen Con competition and won Silver. You can read more about it here.

But let’s not deviate from the subject too much and dive into the subject matter.
