    Hi John, welcome to the community! 

    How long have you now been into 3D printing, what type of 3D printer do you have and do you have any interesting projects you can share what you have made already? 


    Is there anything in particular that you would like to learn here? 


    Have a great day!

    Hello SandervG, thank you for your welcome,

    I have been interested in 3d printing for quite a while now , but only bought the printer 4 months ago [ ANET ET4 ], i went for bargain basement , just to make sure i could get into it. Before that i paid for models to be printed.

    As far as projects go , i have a good collection of militaria 1914 - present , nothing to show as yet as the filiment i bought was bargain bucket and the finished object is really bad.

    Learning , i am reading the board with great interest , especially the problems , and would like to learn as much about 3d printing as possible.

    Again thank you for the welcome and i will see you around the board
