Started using tinkercad at work, it's awesome exactly what I need as a barebones let me get my brain working in 3D. once I feel I have outgrown using shapes to make stuff I'll jump back to fusion and utilize more of the tools available.

Recently bought a used QIDI X-Pro 3D printer and have been messing around with TinkerCAD.

Decided to revamp my trekking pole tripod adapter and made up a mount for my outdoorsman bino adapter along with a quick switch plate and lens cover for compact spotter

Also made a window mount for smaller optics (no 4lb spotters allowed on my windows)

Everything was printed with PETG so it should last for a long time and be fine with outside / rainy conditions.
Is this the one you bought?
QIDI TECH 3D Printer, X-Pro 3D Printer with WiFi Function, Dual Extruder, High Precision Double Color Printing with ABS,PLA,TPU Filament,9.1x5.9x5.9 Inch, does 470 new on amazon sound about right? HAHA darned you!! Now I may have to pick one up.

Yup that's the one, if I were buying new I would probably go with a different printer though. I got this one because it was used and local. The ender and prusa printers seem to be the ones that are more popular on a lot of the YouTube videos I watched. Also, when looking for spare parts in my area, no one seems to list the Qidi tech printers specifically but I think most of the parts are pretty standard.

gotcha, I appreciate it. I was messing around looking at them a month or two ago, curiously. Maybe I'll take this a step further. Thank you so much

I use an Ultimaker 2 and for designing I have Autodesk Inventor Pro. I use solid works at work on occasion but prefer Inventor if I had to pay for it....which I did.

A few other things I’ve designed and 3D printed. The chamber cooling fan is really slick for days on the rifle range. The arrow saw has been great. Probably cut 3 dozen or more arrows with it. Plenty of more stuff somewhere.

Alright, I'm about a week and a half into 3D printing. Here's my contribution:

bow clips.

I've been messing around on TinkerCad a little each day and drew these up with the intent of giving myself options for when I'm in a public land tree stand hunting whitetails (i.e. no spikes, hangers or hooks can be inserted into a tree).

My design will be revised slightly, but these seem to do what I'd hoped. I'll probably print at least 4 more so I can have them strategically placed on my packs' hip belt, and on the molle on my treestand pack.
