Does Anyone Have a 3D Printer?
I’m curious if any of you have a 3D printer. Graev and I have been talking about getting one for a long time. Greav is super creative when it comes to designing and making things, and I just like neat gadgets.
We’re trying to figure out which one to get. I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t done my homework. Graev has decided he wants to wait for some new one coming out in a bit that’ll cost like $600-700. I’m leaning toward one of the lower-end ones for $160 to see if it’s something I like, but I also don’t want to get a piece of crap.
For those of you who have one, what do you think? Do you like the printer you got? Do you use it to make neat things? Advice on what you’d look for in a 3D printer? Does it require a ton of 3D design knowledge to make something in one of those programs that design before you print? Heck, does that software come included? These are the things I need to know!
In my mind I’d print up things for board games and stuff around the house. For example, there are lots of really cool things you can 3D print for making board game part containers or even decorations for while you play. I would also want to try something crazy like the image of a 3D printed Catan at the top of this post (source). I’d also print a new back cover to my tv remote control because it broke. Stuff like that!
I’d love to see what you’ve made if you have pictures, too.
We’ll probably make a purchase in Q1 this year once we figure out all these details.
