3D Printing and Printers (in Retro Computing & Gaming)

- Ω -

Recommended Posts

For now, I'm posting this in the OFF TOPIC area. Over time my hope is that it grows and becomes a self-sustaining draw on Atari.io.  Until then, I can see this coming under multiple headers...

1) 3D Printers - Timely Discussion about which models are "currently" hot, the best deals (as in bang for the buck) as well as affordable sources for supplies, etc.

2) Clearing House -  A subheading for "linked lists to pre-designed parts from all over the Internet under each platform like Atari, Commodore, TI, etc.

3) Personal Stories - Discussions abouts how 3D printer tech has affected your retro computing or gaming hobby.

4) Virtual Mall -  Since not everyone will own a 3D printer, people can show what they've made for themselves and are currently offering for sale to help those without.

5) Who knows...

How has 3D printer technology affected your retro computing hobby?  Were your able to re-create a broken part?  Were you able to make or obtain a new case for a newly designed item?  Were you simply able to jazz up your retro-computing platform or game room with art or accessories?  What else?
