    My son is anxiously saving his dollars and will soon be buying a Creality Ender 3 3D printer. He is 14 and has had exposure to printers through school and knows some basic editing tools. Just curious to see what pinball applications you have done that are fun and practical. Nothing to high tech. We currently have a Guardians and a WOZ machine. Open to any pop culture projects or fun uses you have found. What I do not want is a house full of plastic "junk". I am pushing him to challenge himself in what he prints and how applies it after the print. Even if it is not directly pinball, what are those of you who may have kids in the house finding the are gravitating to with these machines.

    Thanks to all.

    Endless number of projects around my house. Can't imagine life without it. Here is a GOTG fix I did awhile back to keep the ball from getting stuck. Still works great. Have fun!

    A friend us printing me some unobtainium Spinball drop targets. Luckily the file was already available, so not too much work for him.
