I bought a Makerbot in early 2014 and joined this site in February 2015. The first 3D model I ever printed was in 1994 on a million dollar machine; I am simply floored that now I have something sitting on my desk that can do the same thing.
There are a lot of very creative people contributing here and I enjoy browsing what others have done.
I do not earn money or receive any compensation from these files. Tips are not necessary (or even enabled), but thanks to those of you who have tried. Models/designs/IP that I've "copied" (such as the Star Wars vehicles) are listed as non-commercial to avoid potential trademark or copyright issues. Please (!!!) respect the original rights holder and don't do anything with them that could get me in trouble. :)
