i only have two... but both havent let me down, even though i wish one of them was designed a little differently.
- 3d printed diffusers for my ai hydra 26HDs. no complaints on these.
- ato/dosing tube holder. this one, i wish it was shorter. it would be perfect for a rimless sump, but it goes a little too deep for my liking into the filter section of my aio, where the water level is much higher than your average sump, and the tubes are very close to the water, submerging them when i turn off the return pump for maintenance. i haven't had a backsiphon because of it due to the pumps preventing it, but... one day, that may not be the case as things age/wear.
3D printing is certainly very helpful. What printer do you have?I 3d print my own accessories for my tank and I love having the ability to do it, so I answered the poll that I love them. However, if I were purchasing the items from a store I don't think I would be happy with the quality that you get from a 3d printer. Although maybe it's just that my prints aren't very good so I don't know how much quality you can get from a good print.
True, but the main benefit of being 3D printed is the endless possibilities of things that can be created.3D printing isn't quite 'there' yet, if you know what I mean.
And this is just my problem, but why does it always have to be advertised as 3D PRINTED!! WOW AWESOME!!
it's just another fabrication method that allows people to make one-offs in their garage. it's cool for the first few times you use one I guess.
It's just a Creality Ender 3. I've only had it for about 2 years and I honestly don't use it much but I love having the ability to make something when needed, especially things that you can't normally buy. I've considered upgrading to a nicer printer but overall for the price it seems to be a really good value.3D printing is certainly very helpful. What printer do you have?
