The 3D-Printer movement for me started by "buying" a Makerbot 5th Generation Replicator, but never got to the point to actually pay the bill. There were several issues and after three rounds of repairs I gave it up and the printer back. Moved on buying a Ultimaker 2.
The new usb type c external ssd has an adapter cable which should always be with it.
Lesson learned: Pretty nifty to fix small issues with your 3d printer and a ruber band.

Another round of pokemons, can't get enough.
Lesson learned: When it comes to very small layers (here: Pokemon ears) set minimal layer time to about 30s. Increases print quality.

First print with "wooden" filament: about 30% recycled woodfibres and 70% PLA.
Lesson learned: Woodfill needs to be printed fast and not to hot. Colorfab has helpfull "Tips&Tricks".

After giving away all our chains (great gifts to show off 3D-Printer capabilities), we needed new ones.
Lesson learned: The raft by Cura sucks. It sticks way to hard to the modell. Makerbot's raft is better.

In Progress Working on getting together with Büro für Architektur to print models of houses for their customers. Those models are supposed to help their customers better imagine the discussed prototype in the desgin phase.
After buying a Fairphone2 and not having a Landscape-Dock on the desk, I realized how much I enjoyed Beni's HTC One Dock.
So I helped myself and created this model.
Lesson learned: Its exponentially harder to make this for the Fairphone2 because the keys and camera stands out.

First draft finished.
Lesson learned: The devil is in the detail, which you only realize when you do it yourself.
This is an approximation of the Fairphone2 body used for all accessorie models.
