Uses for a 3D Printer in the Machine Shop!

When 3D printers first made their consumer debut, they were marketed as novelty machines.

This video shows numerous 3D printed parts, fixtures, organization tools, and more that are actually useful! In addition to our own examples, Jan Roetz (TIE Fighter Builder Extraordinaire) also has several awesome ideas to share. A huge thanks to him and Tyler Reid for reaching out to make this video jam packed with great ideas!
