  • 3D printer ... off topic

    Because of some of the posts in the Small Scale Bowling forum, I purchased a 3D printer in December. The first order of business was to build my bowling pin release mechanism. I posted a video a few months ago. I had also mentioned that I'm in the process of building components for a home flight simulator. I realize this is off topic, but I wanted to share the photos of the throttle assembly for a twin engine plane. It's off topic, but it does pertain to the 3D printer discussions and goes to the core of accuracy, flexibility, usefulness and wide range of components that can be created on a 3D printer.

      Thanks, the 3D printer has opened up entire worlds of engineering and creativity. Parts that I would have spent hours and hours trying to create by hand, I can now design and prototype in no time. For about $300, this thing has been great.
