About Bits3DandPieces

Sales 567
On Etsy since 2013

From my very first job at the age of 17, I was fascinated by the computers that were in our office, just sitting there collecting dust. When I was given permission to work on it, it was the start of my rise into geek-dom.

Fast-forward 3 decades (yikes) to 2013 when I saw a 3D printing demonstration at the New York State Fair in Syracuse, and I was hooked. At the time, I was working in my own technology center, fixing computers, and providing tech training.I now have TWELVE 3D printers in my home - running them almost 24 hours a day. Check out my shop, website, facebook or instagram for items I've printed. ("Favorite" my shop and receive a coupon. Look for coupons on my other pages too!)

I live in Saratoga Springs, NY with my teenage grandson and puppy Sparx and am surrounded by my children and granddaughter nearby.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

3D printed items are not heat-resistant. Although PLA plastic can withstand temperatures up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 Celsius), it can become soft if put in dishwasher, hot water, or even left in a car on a warm day.

Wash 3D prints with a cloth of warm water and mild soap. Most prints are not water-tight.

If a part breaks, you can glue it back together with superglue, Loc-tite gel, epoxy, or any other glue safe for plastics.

Can 3D printed objects be sanded or painted?

3D printed items can be painted with acrylic paints or any other paints that are safe for plastic or PLA plastic. It is recommended that they are primed first. Use of model car paints or spray paint for plastics work well.

If you want to remove visible layer lines, you can sand prior to priming. If sanding removes the natural color from a print, it can sometimes be restored by rubbing olive oil on it. Note that most items are not completely solid and only have approximately a 1mm solid surface so be cautious to not sand down too many layers.
