    Default Ender 3 S1

    I have not got a 3D Printer, but have been feverishly trying to justify buying one to tinker with. I just can't think of anything 'specific' I want to print.
    I'm sure I will think of something, but.....nothing yet.....lol
    I didn't want to do constant upgrades to a original Ender 3 until it had the features I wanted, so now, this might be the time to jump.

    I was sort of in your shoes about 5 years ago when my son gave me a printer kit and completed about 99% of it before giving it back to him to finish as I didn't really have anything I wanted to print. A few years later when I needed something printed he would (eventually) print anything I could send him the plans for. Eventually he got slower and slower at responding to my requests and I decide to bite the bullet and last year got my own

    I assume you have looked/searched through thingiverse.com for plans and ideas for projects. although I already had a need, a look through thingiverse will at least give you some ideas.

    I assume you have seen some of my posts on this.
    I use it mainly for my electronics projects, boxes, fan grilles, cable feedthroughs, etc but there are heaps of things that can be printed for any workshop.

    Even if you just print blobs they are still fun to tinker with. I'm in the process of upgrading the heater bed on my printer so that I can print nylon - hopefully

    If you want to take advantage of printing to your specifications you will need to learn some form of CAD.
    I know a bit about computer programming so I've started with SCAD (software cad) as it suits programmers.
    There are other more graphic type CADs around that may suit.
    The learning curve can be steep but it should be worth it.

    Thanks Bob.
    Those sorts of things would probably the sorts of things I'd make.
    Have some CAD experience, but not much 3D.

    Might have to wait for the the 'bad' things to come out on this printer before I jump....
