Ive got a few random parts that I have printed throughout the years for myself and others. Anyone else find something fun to print and use?

Yeah man, I still get parts made from time to time... not so much as I used to when it was my full time job. But heck, in a lot of ways being able to print parts is what enabled me to start my business, so it'll always play a role even though I do more sheet metal than anything right now.

We use additive mfg for all kinds of stuff in all kinds of material (Ti, all kinds of plastics) for implants, prototypes, fixtures, tooling, fast molds for simple parts, etc. we have several printers at work and also we have a printer at home and use it a lot. Daughter knows what can be printed and often suggests it. Doll needs a new foot the dog chewed off… “can we print a new foot?” “Sure Mila”.

They now have "maker" licenses for Solidworks that drops the price down to $100 I think.
