The summer months are a low season for students, but engineering and design professionals are as busy as ever. This is reflected clearly in the data of the Q4 Trends report.
The table below gives an overview of the Top 25 Most Used Desktop 3D printers, ranked by the total number of parts produced last quarter.
In this edition of the Trend report, the Most Used 3D Printing Colors category was not included, to create space for other charts. We understand that this information is still interesting for some so we've decided to publish it here.
