A lot can go wrong with 3D printing, a rapidly maturing technology that many people are just now learning how to use. Here, someone's head is looking a bit lopsided.
"It may sound odd, but it's really essential that you fail when doing 3D printing," says RepRap, whose own blog post about 3D printing inspired the Art of 3D Print Failure Flickr group. "It tells you so much about your machine, the boundaries you can operate in, and how good or bad things can be. If all you do is print with safe settings or never play with the electronics or firmware, then you are missing so much of this wonderful project."
