We recently started raising chickens for eggs. Ended up buying 21 chickens, long story, but we were only going to get 10 of them. Anyway, we are getting up to 16 eggs a day!  So I quickly knew I needed to get a small mini fridge to keep the extra eggs in.  My dad had one, but the top hinge was missing. So I quickly designed this part, put it in and the fridge is fixed!  Who knew I could save a few hundred dollars by 3d printing a 5 cent part.

We ended up needing some more storage space for our Nintendo switch games. I decided to print this off. Although I didn't check to make sure the bed was level and it definitely was not. But I didn't have any issues with it printing, just didn't print as nice as it could have

@123toid - making your own components helps to show how much can be saved (and at times how much things are marked up; although it also helps give appreciation to when there isn't that much of a markup and you realize when you are truly getting what you paid for).

I completely agree.  Although, I was sup stoked to make that part for the refrigerator.  I could not find that part for sale anywhere. It was actually my dads idea to 3d print it.  I was thinking, "Why didn't I think of that?" But I am so glad he thought of it and I was able to implement it.  It took about 10 minutes to design (including getting measurements). Then only about 3 minutes to print.  And if it should ever break, no worries.  I'll just print it again.
