3D Printed gear

I just got a 3D printer. If anyone needs something built (custom gopro mounts, cupholders, custom brackets) let me know. You just play for the shipping. It gives me some practice designing. Im not trying to sell anything.

How strong is the plastic those printers use? I thought they were more for conceptualization of parts as opposed to making functional parts.

How good is the detail? Could you make a mini remix, or mini Werner Sho-Gun. or mini hand paddles. Would be cool to have something like that.

Resolution: 2.5 micron on Z axis 11.micron on XY axis. Pretty durable but I wouldn't trust my life on it. And STL would work.

I don't need one, but a threaded drain plug might be a fun challenge.
