Yes I officially have the 3D bug. I still do all of the work I used to do in the shop, but now my Prusa assistant is making stuff in the other room.

Today’s finish line is two sets like this is spools to hold long range wind-ons- one set for fluorocarbon and one set for monofilament. There are individual spools for 20,25,30,40,50,60,80 and 100# test line. They were designed by me using Tinkercad software.

Next fishing trip is in October and I’ll be ready.

Technology innovation is awesome... (when we can get it to work) 🤣 🤣 .

I love seeing your fishing materials.

I bought a Prusa 3D printer because almost every review said they just work and work well. Mine did from the first print and has been wonderful every day. I’m into hundreds of hours of printing already. The first one was built by them and thoroughly tested. My next will be a kit so I can learn every bolt and piece.
