Creality Ender 3

…so, after a couple of years of trying to leave the idea aside, I finally bought a 3D printer.
I'm really amazing how good is a cheap printer (€217) nowadays, and how easy it was to set it up.
In the first concave prints I had lots of stringing, which I solved as suggested by CHEP.
So, yes, now I own a 118dB whistleand I don't even know why. :P

@lapo how do you make the step files? Do you simply download them? Or do you know some basics of cad or cad like programs?

@tartarosso I do know some CAD basics, but this was just found in the huge repository that is Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1179160.
(I try and put the links in the photos' description)
@tartarosso Maybe some slight mods, e.g. in the case of this fidget https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3495096 I flipped some pieces upside down to avoid needing support beams. Also for some (yet unknown) reasons one of the two bigger gears failed to print, so I duplicated the other one and mirrored it. Opensource Slic3r-PE https://www.prusa3d.com/slic3r-prusa-edition/ allows this stuff easily.
