About Denise Bertacchi

I’m currently the 3D print reviewer at Tom’s Hardware, but before that I was just a gal who loved making miniature dumpster fires with her CR10s. I love crafting and see 3D printing as the natural evolution of my hobbies.

Since I’m neither an engineer nor professional graphic designer, I approach 3D printing from the vantage point of a pure hobbyist. I’ve soaked up every how to tutorial on perfecting my prints and now I’m ready to show others that NO, you don’t need to be a geek to 3D print. You just need patience!

My personal printers are a CR10s upgraded with a Microswiss and PEI flex plate and an Ender 3 Pro with every mod I could throw at it. I’m also guardian of a rotating fleet of Tom’s Hardware printers, ranging from a tiny Ender 2 Pro to the massive Anycubic Kobra Max.

On any given day, I could have 10 printers running in my basement…and I don’t even have a farm.
