A few years ago, we were interested in acquiring a 3D printer to allow use to print mechanical parts for our projects. We ended up buying a Makerbot Replicator 2X. To this date, we have not actually used it to print anything technical and instead, everyone at behindthesciences has been using it to print anything other than work related things 🙂
Here is a collections of things we have printed. Most of the models come from Thingiverse.com.
