Small diorama update

Added some lights to the diorama last night.  All light in the photos is from the LEDs as the room was pretty dark.  Put it in a decent display location in my new office too 🙂

What started my 3D printing craze?!

Sometime in the winter of 2017 I decided to buy a couple car models to spend time on while the wife and I were watching TV.  I put a couple together and found the time very relaxing.  I wanted a way to display my models when completed and using the clear cases just seemed boring.  I decided to build a diorama or a service shop and began designing on paper and in my head.  I found an issue locating any garage doors in the scale needed and my buddy Pat convinced me to buy a 3D printer and make them myself!  I bought a printer(2 actually, first one was insufficient and I returned it) and started designing the garage doors in SketchUp.  I got them all printed but then stored them away for about 8 months, when I started working on the diorama again.  In between all that time, I printed a crap ton of other items, i.e. misc household items, Christmas and birthday gifts, anything I could think of!  I was hooked!  Anyone that wants to buy me a Prusa i3 MK3 you’d be my best friend for life!

Here is a small list of some of the items I’ve made: Bandit’s Makes
