    Have any of you printed your own parts? Jennifer bought me a 3D printer almost a year ago and it is still in the box.

    Hiya,

    This has always confused me. How can you print a part? Aren't they made out of paper or at best cardboard?

    There is a guy on Facebook printing dual and single holders for mounting Vortech drivers. Pretty cool, almost any color you want.

    Can you 3D print me a new sump? :cool:

    no. I almost did LOL, I spent a few days playing around with ideas but I never pulled the trigger and hit print.

    I have a 3d printer and a CNC. It has been great fun learning to use, redesign and tweak it to get better quality prints. I have some designs in mind for the reef tank, but I just be printing other fun stuff!
     
  10. A couple of guys I work with have 3D printers.

    I may have a holder printed for my ATO switches. I have also found files for needle wheels and skimmer parts.
