    I am supposed to be getting access to a 3D printer soon, and I need some files to try it out with, preferably of TF accessories/reproes/add-ons.

    I have searched through Shapeways and they don't really have anything good that's downloadable.

    Does anyone here keep a collection or have access to some .stl files they'd be willing to share? None of this stuff is to be resold. I'm supposed to help test the machine and may as well make stuff I can keep :) 

    I'm not even sure what kind of stuff is available (or if this is the right forum...sorry if it's not!), so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I have a little hand gun model you can test with, but it's on my work computer so I can't get it to you until tomorrow.

    Really, I recommend downloading sketchup and making a few designs of your own. It's really easy to learn and you should be able to crank out some simple designs in an hour or so of trying it out.

    What kind of printer is it?

    Yup, I've got a few downloadable items on Thingiverse noteably tanktread sets from a few of my projects, Goryu's club, some other stuff.

    I'm "writerwolf" over there.
