I have an Ender 3.  I made lots of stuff early on.  Probably the most made things are items to make the printer better! ;)  Thingiverse is great.  I made a set of drawers that fits into the base to hold all the tools and spare parts and some stuff to manage the filament handling.  I made a lot of 3-D puzzles, articulated animals and even an ocarina (sweet potato) instrument.  Works really well and fun to play.  I made that out of transparent PETG in red.  I like using that.  I've used PLA, PLA+, PETG, and ABS.  I think ABS was the hardest to get to stick and once stuck, the hardest to get off the bed!  But, you can't beat it for being tough, though PETG is pretty tough as well and adheres well to itself.  When the bad weather set back in, I'll fire it up again.

ljohnson, have you done any cold weather testing on those filaments? Unfortunately I have a cold shop and a bunch of the printed stuff stays in the shop like my MPCNC. I know the PLA gets brittle cold but not sure about the others.

None yet.  I did make a replacement part for a straight edge clamp/guide.  It lasted a while but broke at a thin spot.  Made it from PETG, IIRC.  I just need to re-engineer the drawing and make another when the weather shuts me down outside.  So far, this winter is not looking so good for water/snow.
