Since you can print a lot in the Homecockpit area yourself, I write a small contribution.
Why do I need a 3D printer?
There are a variety of uses to use a 3D printer in the field of simulators. Since we are already exposed to high costs anyway, you can save a few Euros here and there!
buttons and switches are gladly printed. But you can also print larger things, such as whole Yokes and panels!
Under this link I have selected a small assortment of 3D printable objects. But even designing yourself is no problem!
Which printer do I need?
If there should be something bigger this is the top choice!

I also bought myself an Anet A8 and do not regret it. It is indeed a printer that you have to build yourself but if it runs then with perfect print results!
The most important thing about this printer is the print size which is 220mm x 220mm x 230mm. So you can print almost everything you need for your cockpit!
For about 160 EUR this is also a fair price.
Here are some pictures of my printed things!
