Do you own a 3D printer or have access to one? Has your experience so far been positive? And if so, do you have any related Windows apps to recommend?

These questions form the gist of an interesting conversation taking place in the Windows Central forums today. Forum member Kram Devil started the thread in our off-topic lounge, and it's already sparked some good back and forth. (Kram Devil also showed off some cool Game of Thrones related 3D-printed goodies, too, which never hurts.)

It would be nice to have a place to discuss 3d related stuff. 3d design, 3d slicers, 3d printers, 3d scanning and also 3d viewing on a windows MR and AR headset. Oh Yeah! I can't wait to get the Acer MR headset. It would revolutionize the way I create, view, and make 3d models. Yes, I know it's butt ugly, but it's cheap. Let's have a place to discuss and fix issues with our 3d models. ...

We want to hear your thoughts on the current state of 3D printing, and how it relates to Windows. Personally, I've never really used a 3D printer, though I sat next to a coworker at a former job who was seemingly obsessed with his 3D printer, and he constantly printed random trinkets (often related to Star Wars for some reason … ). So I had to get used to the noise of his printer, which pretty much never stopped. And he printed a really cool, very detailed model of the Eiffel Tower that stuck in my mind.

How about you? Do you own or have access to a 3D printer? If so, what do you use it for? And do you use it along with any specific Windows app? Hit the link below and let us know.
