I thought this was packed with lots of good info for those that are new to 3D printing and also wondering if anything useful can be done with them:

This is a fake video. He didn't print the quintessential toilet paper roll holder! ;)

I don’t know about been new to 3D printing, but I found this guy truly amazing, and I taught I was mad about 3D printing, :barnie thanks @Nifty for the video, O’ @stratman I haven’t made the quintessential toilet roll holder yet either.. Ops…:hu

P.S. I’ll be going through some of his printed parts because I’m sure there’s something I can use…:weee

Dear olde @The Hat

I reckon you are the Irish Norwegian - mad about 3D printing, although probably not as OCD as this brilliant guy (boxes and boxes and boxes that all fit perfectly together in drawer after drawer after drawer). :D

It is a fantastic video. :bow

PS I wonder how many versions he made of his camera arm before the final one we see. :th

I knew I’d find something I liked to download and print, but as usual I’m useless at finding and searching for things, so I couldn’t get the dowel jig thing that I wanted..

This wasn't the dowel jig you wanted?
