    My printer setup

    OK, I'll start it off. I am using a little Monoprice Mini V2 printer. A pic of some of the things I have made so far.

    I'll play. I've got a mildly-upgraded Ender 3 Pro hooked up to an ancient laptop that doubles as my reloading PC.

    In the last year I've printed a lot, but the things I think are most impressive-looking are:

    COVID faceshield holders for local medical workers (OK, they're not impressive looking but they were important)

    My wife has given me a to-print list... which is really a design-this-in-CAD-then-print-it list. I feel like that's a victory in comparison to her eye-rolling attitude towards casting.
    I'm a big fan of data-driven decisions. You want to make me smile, show me a spreadsheet! Extra points for graphs and best-fit predictive equations.

    Back in the day I was damn good at Mech... We even played in the pods at DaveNBusters -- the Battle Tech.

    Y'all know the rest...
