I'm new to this forum but being an engineer I have been working with many different 3d printers during the last years. Together with some friends I have also started a web-shop with the purpose of striving 3d printing by supplying useful things (filament, tools, and accessories).
Now I would like to have input from you guys about clever tools and accessories that you think one should have for making the work with a 3d printer as convenient as possible?
This is a list of things that I like (and things that our site supply)
- Digital caliper
- Dial indicator
- Blue tape (for cold beds)
- Elmer's glue stick (for print bed adhesion)
- Kapton Tape (for heated beds)
- Cricut spatula
- X-acto knife
- Mini drills
- Mini files
- Sanding kit
- Zip bags (for storing of filament)
- PLA glue (loctite gel control)
- plier/filament nipper
- RIT dye for nylon coloring
Also some things I always print for using in the work are filament clips and filament spool holders.
Please feel free to contribute with great things that you use!
