I defeated a long-broken fridge and became a household hero through 3D printing

Meh, maybe this 3D printing thing wasn t quite as thrilling as it had first seemed.

This challenge stared at me, daily, taunting me to find a solution—I d finally fix the broken plastic top cap on our refrigerator door handle!

So how do you go about creating an unbroken duplicate of an existing part?

Faced with an unfamiliar workspace and toolbar, I resorted to the online tutorials to learn this program.

Then it got more challenging as I added the curved edges, flanges, angled surfaces, and corners.

I scrapped the whole thing and started again from scratch.
