I am a geek who has ideas on how things should work, and tools I need to make them work. So I print them. I really appreciate those that post STEP files that let me do my own tweaks/remixes to other designs. I have many high end hobbies (Photography, Motorcycling, Backpacking, RC Racing) and many Tech related passions. 3D design and printing makes them more fun as I have a problem, and design a solution. I've turned around problems and solutions in minutes and had them printed.
I use FreeCAD and OpenSCAD primarily as I love the parametric design concepts and ... the price. I print with Simplify3D
