It's awesome.

When you have an idea and make it happen.

Having a 3D printer makes it even more awesome because it can happen in a matter of hours.

We use a GoPro to create time lapse videos of our 3D prints here in The Gnomery. Well, it wasn't the most perfect set up having it sit on the edge of the glass we use as our print bed. It vibrated. It wiggled. It was unstable.

Justin had an idea. He decided to make a GoPro mount that fits on the printer itself.

Even better, he decided to combine that mount with the filament guide he had previously printed.

To TinkerCAD he went. To the Community Garden meeting I went. By the time I was back, he was done with the design and printing had commenced.

Here's the finished product.

Seriously. It's amazing to have the capability of idea to object in an afternoon.

If you don't have a 3D printer, it's definitely affordable to work with the LaserGnomes to get an idea rolling.
