The first print in my own 3D printer is on its way! ☺

@MrHenko Is it done? I’d like to have a 3D printer some day, wonder which one you’ve got, and if you’re satisfied with it.

@odd I got the FlashForge Adventurer 3. That photo was from the very first print I did with it so thus far I don’t know if I can recommend it or not.

Generally speaking I haven’t done much 3D printing but when I started trying it out for the πFi Music Player I also started thinking about whether to get one for myself or not and when I started looking around I found this one on sale. The machine I’d used previously to that is the printer that we have at work and that one is a different FlashForge model so I figured getting a similar but smaller model for myself would be a good decision.

@MrHenko Thanks for your reply. It all looks very interesting to me, but I really shouldn’t get another hobby. Even so, I think there’s a lot of little things that I could fix using such a machine. I’m terrible at 3D construction though, so maybe it’s not for me…

@odd Yeah, that's how I keep rationalizing the purchase to myself. "Imagine all the things that I can make that makes life easier." 😀

But it is a very fun toy to have! And the web is full of free things to print while you build up your own 3D modeling skills.
