    Default Got the grandson a 3d printer

    My grandson is in a STEM program in high school and has AutoCAD this semester and SolidWorks next. Seemed like a good time to see what 3D printing can do for both of us. Was hoping to set it up with him today, and he had to go and get sick! Don’t these kids know grandpa waits all year for this?

    Waits all year to spend time and get sick! At least that what happens to me everytime I have quality time with my grandkids.

    You know when he inherits your shop, he's going to sell all your old iron and fill it with those little things... don't you?

    Nah, I still have a bit and brace from my grandfather and a Yankee drill too- if I can I use them over the Makita every chance I get.

    I have left all my tools, the lathe and the CNC to him. He’s not allowed to sell them until after he graduates college if I am not around to see that. Then he is free to persue anything he loves to do.

    What brand did you get? My 12 year old granddaughter is starting her second year of Solidworks. I don't want her running a cnc yet so I am thinking about a 3d printer.
