Mostly little trinkets. I made a stand for my vape, and a glow in the dark tray to put my glasses in at night so I can find them in the dark. I also made my wife a couple of knitting accessories, and printed a case for my Raspberry Pi that has an articulating arm to hold the pi camera.

Where to you get designs and do you use a cad-cam program for designing your own?

I get designs from thingiverse.com

I have made a few of my own using SketchUp but nothing too fancy.

Looking on Thingverse too and found some neat accessories for the Anschutz rifle.

"Worth It" is a wide open field. Yes this set up will make 3d parts. Fast? No. Semi-Assembled - meaning you will need to do some assembly and a lot of tweaking. It's a good printer to dip into with. They are fun, and I use mine for project cases, trinkets, mod parts, etc. The list of things you can print are almost endless.If you order, be thinking of a heavy, solid surface to set it up on. Needs to be deadnuts level to produce good prints.

I binged seasons 1-3 with my daughter last month.  Season 4 has been announced but not an air date.
