During the Enchanted Objects design challenge I learnt quite a few things about 3D printing and OpenSCAD, I thought I'd summarise and share them here. My posts in this challenge were all themed with a running story hence the strange titles. My printer is the Cel Robox which I received earlier in the year for a roadtest, this was my first exposure to 3D printing.
