Here is a video made by another new member to TechSpace, showing how 3D printing can provide a nice simple solution to a real problem. In this case, Dianne needed a connector to attach chalk to a telescopic stick that she has. She had not been involved in 3D design or print before. However she found she could work out her solution with some research over the internet. She used TinkerCAD online, our Slicer and Pronterface software and a Reprap 3D printer at TechSpace.
3D printing is great for producing low volume or one-off products, especially where odd or multi-faceted shapes are needed.
