When 3D prints go wrong they become garbage, or simply art.
Design Architect Jeremy Boggs in the Scholars' Lab uploaded a serie of "Plastic Debacles" made on a Makerbot Replicator with dual extruders. "Things happen in the course of tinkering with models and print settings. Temperature fluctuations, drafts around the printer, the level of the build plate, the speed of the print, all kinds of stuff can affect the outcome."
Some makers showed their prints failure on Flickr and tell what went wrong to allow other users to comment and discuss how to avoid such mistakes in the future.

Bernat Cuní of cunicode posted his "beautiful failures" from his 3D printing experiment. A good photographer and some stretching of imagination have turned these 3D prints failures into pure arts. Sometimes creation is just a process of noticing, imagining and interpreting details what many people don't see.
