I've realized there are lots of times where we're printing something and may not want to start a whole thread on/about that item.
I also thought it would be fun to have a thread for us all to contribute to so we can see what people are printing... regardless of the type of printer. I know I'll...

Well, we've been working on this new homepage for a while and we're SUPER excited to launch it!
What started out as a way to accommodate our awesome POW (Picture Of the Week)...
I often print holes into my 3D things in order to either attach them to something, to each other, or attaching things to them.
So, I purchased a kit of metric "screws" / nuts and bolts:
They work great, but sometimes I don't want to use a nut with the bolt. So, I've...
A quick update on the missing POW situation!
I've taken a couple of the challenges around the loss of the Picture Of The Week + our upgrade to the new forum software and turned them into a great opportunity!!!
Last night I just hired a developer to create a "homepage" for all my sites. It will...

There are also a few feature additions and changes to discover ;)
My Mazda 6 didn't come with any good options for a coin tray. Originally I printed one of these:

FINALLY found a fun solution to an age-old problem!!!

I'm pretty sure everything that I've printed over the last year-and-a-half has had some degree of functionality. I'd say the most useless things I've printed so far have been some kind of toy or trinket that shows off cool things that 3D printers do, like this favorite...
Recently, I decided to completely redo the wall above my workbench in my garage. I took down a cabinet and horrible tool-rack and installed pegboard from Home Depot.
Of course, I could have purchased a bunch of pegboard hooks, etc., but what fun would that be.
Next thing I knew, I was spending...
My date for a party wanted to be "Red Riding Hood". I had two choices:
A Woodsman in the SF Bay Area would have just looked like a Hipster. But I didn't want to wear a mast or makeup for a wolf.
I was going to just buy a costume, but decided to get creative.
First I designed...
I stumbled on this and immediately bought it!
I used it to print these whistle bottle openers: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2192066
