I 3D printed a hexagon shelf for my game room and I love it

I've come a pretty long way with my 3D printer, now 3 months into using the beginner-friendly Anycubic Kobra 2, and with a much better understanding now of how it all works than I had during my first 3 weeks with a 3D printer initially. 

There are still a few areas of 3D printing that I have yet to experiment with, such as creating lithophanes or a HueForge print. But for the most part, I've managed to troubleshoot a fair amount of issues using YouTube. Even the best 3D printers will run into some trouble, for example, I learned that you can use hairspray as a quick fix to help with bed adhesion (a very frustrating problem) and that stringing can be minimised through tweaking your retraction settings in your slicer.
