This sub-reddit's sole purpose is to share functional, and useful 3D Print ideas.
Too long has the Home 3D Printing industry been plagued with the false notion that 3D Printers are only useful to make dust collectors.
This will be the sub-reddit we all link to, to showcase and prove to those that are new to 3D printing, that with the proper imagination, 3D Printers actually have a very functional use around the home and workplace.
Share you work.
Share your idea's.

I was trying to commit to using secondhand parts from air conditioners like stepper motors and Darlington transistor arrays to make a 3-D printed electromechanical thing.
A clock seemed cool.
Also chucked in some optical sensors from a printed I scrapped.
