Off-topic: Mailing-lists, Forum or community better suited to designing and guidance for 3D printing.

I did note the following comment in a recent thread:

Maybe we need a new section, entitled 'Gene's Blog', or something. The

fact remains, although this is now not about openscad

I will provide some guidance regarding appropriate usage of the Mailing-list separately.

I also note Gene's comment:

This thread is getting way off-topic for OpenSCAD Support!

No argument there. But I've done several net searches for a mailing list

for such conversations without getting a hit yet.

And since OpenSCAD is so well suited for building something we can slice

and make, here I am.

In an endeavour to reduce some of the off-topic content I would like your suggestions for sites
better suited

to 3D printing, designing for 3D printing, printing problems, specific issues with or comments on
particular printers,

sharing projects and of a more community nature.

When I first started a long time ago, with my first printer, an original Kickstarter Printrbot,

the printrbottalk.com Forum was a wide ranging community of that nature, I hadn't been there

for quite some time, it now seems defunct, not much traffic and technical faults with the site.

I don't have the time to live on such community sites, so haven't been looking for them.

So, could we have suggestion for such, with bonus cred for those with some OpenSCAD flavour.

I will endeavour to curate the results to add to the OpenSCAD.org web site, somewhere.

A brief description of each would help.

Since getting my Ender 3 V2 in March and installing OpenSCAD a week or
so later I've had help in a few places as well as here.

I have in mind the adage 'horses for courses'.

Low traffic. UK dominated of course. For miscellaneous conversation it
has a thread 'Random 3D printing chatter'.

Reddit

Very high traffic and large number of experienced users. US dominated.
Despite its adverts and other distractions I've warmed to it. Categories
allow foucus, e.g:

Ideally I'd like a Usenet newsgroup. Although I haven't searched yet, I
think they have fallen out of favour over the last decade, with forums

Usenet groups became Google Groups.

There currently aren't many OpenSCAD groups, but it's certainly easy to
create one.

My reply this morning (10:15) is still not in my 'OpenSCAD emails'
