Is it broken? 3D print a new!

Our beloved but always overloaded laundry bag is held together by a string with a ‘clip’ (no idea what else to call it) on it. At least that is how it used to be, until it broke. Since I was going a bit nuts already with drawing things in Tinkercad, it was a perfect practice object.

    I truly think this is what private 3D printing is going to be. Not the fancy super designs. No, just like we use a “normal” 2D printer for. I need a document / picture / et cetera. Nothing realy fancy. In the beginning of 2D printing (dot-matrix printers) we mostly used the printer to draw super fancy 3D wave patterns. And super unimaginally difficult diagrams representung trendings and so on. But all that difficult stuf disappeared.
    This also looks a bit like what a dot matrix printer produced; “A bit rough on the edges”. But that will evolve in smooth and colorfull for 1/8 of the present price. Just like the pricing of printers did. Our first STAR-NL10 printer was over 800 guilders. Last year we bought a CANON MG6350 for just €100.
    Oh by the way: Nice job Niels!
