I started 3d priting 2 years ago by buying a cheap anet a6 from China.
At first design things in 3d was something very abstract for me and I just bought this 3d printer to print things designed by other people.
I also like as hobby build custom furnitures and things.
For one of my project I had to design a piece that doesn't exist. I got in my hand a piece that was just in my imagination one hour before.
This day I understood that the powerfull of 3d printing is the possibility to create very specific things for very specific needs. All that by myself !
So I started to learn to design things with tinkercad and then 123d design and now Fusion 360.
I also upgraded for a Prusa mk3 because I prefer spent time in creating things that in upgrading cheap 3d printer
3d printing totally change the way I think:
"Where I can buy that thing ?" has became "Is it on thingiverse, if not do I can design it ? If not, where I can buy that thing?"
Today I start to share my models on thingiverse (not the too specific).
Some are usefull other useless but fun.
I hope you will enjoy them !
