Introducing Honey Badger, our new partner

It’s been a long time coming, but finally, we’re ready to announce our long-term partner.

 

Honey Badger 3D Printing. We are honoured to power Honey Badger in their future printing endeavours. If you haven’t heard of them before, allow me:

 

In their own words, Honey Badger is:

 

“Just two normal guys trying to figure out how to get the best from their 3d printers without spending a fortune on them.

 Mike is an excellent painter and has tons of hint and tips on how to get your prints looking great and James is very Sarcastic and will show you the quickest way to break your printer and how to fix it again with a paperclip and some duct tape.

We will be doing some reviews of the equipment we have, and the prints we do on them and some instructional videos on upgrades we have done.”

 

For the uninitiated, Honey Badger is, like us, small but passionate. They use powerful PCs to design and print some of the most incredible models we’ve ever seen, ranging from the latest Marvel movies to classic video game characters. We got chatting and discovered we could help each other to create even better products if we worked together, and after several zoom calls and emails, we put together a perfect build for Honey Badger, which you can find on our site and even buy for yourself right here.

 

 I’ll give you a run down of all the tasty specs right here:

 This machine is capable of some mighty heavy lifting in terms of its performance. It’s designed to keep the speeds at blistering levels, even whilst doing extremely taxing tasks such as rendering. We built this PC specifically for use in 3D printing, but there are others custom built for tasks such as photo editing or editing, so if you’re in the market for an upgrade, we’ve got you. Plus, I have to mention, the Honey Badger features one of our favourite GPUs out right now: the RTX 3080. If you saw in our earlier blog [link], we touted this one as one of the best you can buy right now. On top of all the other juicy specifications, this machine can handle Cyberpunk 2077 at the highest settings even with ray tracing. We heard first hand from James at Honey Badger that It runs both his renders and even his high-end gaming buttery smooth. For a full breakdown and comparison to their older hardware, please check out his video!

 

 

In the video, James gives the complete run down of the specs and why they’re so important for the processing demand of 3D printing. We do not sponsor or partner with people on a whim: we think ling and hard, and make sure that person or small business is the right fit for us. In this case, Honey Badger was a great fit, and likewise, we make a great fit for them. In business speak, it is a perfect synergy: we promote them, and they promote us, and it creates a nifty feedback loop for their viewers to find us, and our customers to find them.
