I got a printer courtesy of a credit card scam someone tried to accomplish on my youngest son. His credit card got compromised and someone ordered two 3D printers with it. The bank reversed the fraudulent charges and he thought that was it, not knowing what they were for. A few weeks later two 3D printers show up at the house from some company in Taiwan. He contacted the company and the credit card people, and both of them said to keep them as I suspect it wouldn’t have been worth it to ship them back.
He didn’t want them so I kept one and gave the other to a coworker’s dad who is a retired aerospace engineer. I think it’s an Ender 3 or something like that. You don’t really have to have any design abilities. Just go to Thingverse or any number of other web sites that host 3D printer files and start searching. The stuff you’ll find is amazing, and the materials to make them are relatively cheap. There are a bunch of Mercedes related things on Thingverse. I haven’t done anything significant with my printer, but it’s fun to tinker with. Most of what I’ve made so far are enhancements for the printer itself. -D > On Jan 13, 2020, at 6:35 PM, Curt Raymond via Mercedes > <email@example.com> wrote: > > I've often thought about getting a printer but I've got no skilz on the > design side making it fairly impractical.
