My name is Richard Cleveland, I’m the mildly eccentric and overly caffeinated host of The First Layer, a show that explores the world of 3D printing. My passion is helping people with their journey into and through the 3D printing and making hobby. On this channel, you’ll find reviews, printer tutorials and software tips videos. I also do weekly live stream where I engage with you regarding issues you may be having with your prints or printers. I believe there has never been a better time to get started in 3D printing and making! Ready to learn more about this amazing hobby online faster? Make sure to subscribe and leave a comment on a video saying hello. The First Layer is your foundation to a great print! P.S. Want to work together? Maybe you have a product or service that you would like me to featured on The First Layer? Then contact me @
