This little guide should help newcomers to find some practical tips and the right technique for 3d printing projects.
3D printing isn't expensive or hard to learn when you are able to operate a PC(no, not a playstation or xbox) and repair it by replacing a motherboard or it's components.
It is very useful to produce something that does not exist on this planet and you can't buy for money, like clip for your tablecloth(yeah, I've printed some for my table).
Also it can be cheaper to print spare parts rather to buy new producrs. I've printed a steering lever for my sons RC car for example whcih was broken and wasn't able to drive stright on anymore. So it sost me ~less than 1$ at all to fix this rather to throw the car away and buy a new one - safes the planet!
