I received my UM3 in December and I've been having a great time with it so far. It's an incredible machine with incredible support. Although I'm new to desktop 3D printing, I've been designing for SLS printing and sending parts off to i.materialize for output for a few years now. Here's a link to my YouTube Channel that has videos of some of my previous stuff. 

 

A year ago or so I designed and built a wine rack out of aluminum for our kitchen wall. I always intended to have some sort of storage on the middle shelf, but didn't know for sure what to do. Once I got the UM3, I came up with a design for a set of 5 removable storage containers that snap onto the aluminum shelf. All of the printed pieces for each of the containers also snap together. Each one has a hinged door for access. Some of the storage containers have hangers for keys, one has a scotch tape dispenser. I used parts from battery operated work lights for the lighting. The scene that lights up across the front depicts a scene from the upcoming alien invasion. 

 

Printed in black and transparent nylon. Each container, made up of 8 separately printed pieces, represents about 4 1/2 days of printing. Created using SketchUp Make, sliced using Cura. 

 

Lots of fun to make and I'm happy with the result.
