For Filament's 2nd episode, we talk about the number one question we get about working in the MLK Fab Lab: what's the coolest thing you ever 3-D printed? The answer lies somewhere between crowns and tofu molds.

We also brought in special guest Miguel Zavala, whose quest to 3-D model every creature in the "Dungeons and Dragons" monster manual began with our 3D printing service. His project has since gone viral, and you can check out his models on Shapeways.
