3D Printer

A 3D printer is a piece of technology that can create almost anything out of plastic. I have a printer myself and they can be very fun and useful. You can print a wide range of things including fidget toys, organizational drawers (to sort your LEGO bricks for instance), display stands (maybe for your LEGO sets?), or tools just to name a few things.

The way a 3D printer works is quite simple, a file is sent to the printer or downloaded onto a flashdrive that is put into the printer. The printer's nozzle then heats up and the plastic filament is pushed through it while the extruder moves around creating your object layer by layer.

My model is around 500 pieces and the arm can slide up and down and the bed can slide forward and back. I've also included a "3D printed" minifigure.
