- Yellow trigger - 30 x 12 x 40 mm, 6 cm^3, 6.5 grams
- Orange horseshoe - 115 x 80 x 30 mm, 50 cm^3, 54 grams
- Green handle - 110 x 135 x 20, 90 cm^3, 96 grams
- Orange star - 70 x 80 x 40mm, 71 cm^3, 76 grams
Okay flick me the STL's and I'll have a better look at them.

Default 3D Printing Request

I have a request!! Can you please quote me prices (x10) for these TrackIR frames and posted to postcode 4814??? Color black plz -can you do glow-in-dark??

I made one for myself and a mate in Sydney printed it at work then sent it up, but I can't keep asking him to do that lol - just a prototype. Now my friends want some and I'd like to make them
Below is a file with the specs for anyone to use and quote on pleeeeeeaze
www dot thingiverse.com/thing:62827
This is my finished DIY TrackIR


*If you cannot get the file from the site please PM me and I'll email it direct.
Thanks to the originator of this clip for sharing it with me!!

Building your own TrackIR is explained in all its glory on Free-Track.net. Worth a look!

Cheers.

Yeah I can print that, but I'll have to separate the two pieces of that STL so I can do one piece at a time as it's a little large to do in one go. I'm pretty new to Solidworks but I'll give it a go in the next couple of days.
I also only have white ABS sorry but you can blow some black paint on it.

Awesome! No problems with color, I was just throwing it out there. Could you PM me with a quote when you can?
Anyone else do any 3d printing in color??
Cheers

I can print in a few different colours, but I have to fit a different colours roll of ABS into the machine. Not cheap for a one-off.
I'm having trouble cutting the STL into two pieces .... 'cause I have NFI how to work a lot of Solidworks yet sorry.

Don't worry about colour, white is fine. Mine is white and looks good. I just want to see what's available.
Can't you just print each half? I then glue it together when I've installed the wiring.. I've never even seen solidworks. I don't know what the file contains.
If it's too much pain I'll see if someone with some knowledge of solidworks can figure it out. NP. I don't want you wasting time and money on something you're not familiar with. Thanks for trying though

The problem is that the way the parts in the file are set out, they are too far apart and won't fit on the print platform. I can shrink them up so they fit okay but then I guess it won't be any good for you.
I just need to get each of the two parts separated into one file each so I can print one part at a time, that'll be very easy then.

Okay got a mate to separate them for me.
6 grams for each piece so 12 in total, so a mighty $7.20 plus postage.

wow that's a great price What is the finish like? Smooth like Crysis or grainy like Minecraft or in between like Arma the one I have looks smooth but you can feel the steps with a fingernail.

More like the latter.
It's a layer deposition machine - 0.15 mm layers - so it'll have a small grain to it. You can smooth that off pretty well by wiping the surface with a clean rag dipped in acetone.

A question guys - if I wanted to print a ring, with the following dimentions, how much would it cost me?

Outside radius - 70.8mm
inside radius - 58.4mm
thickness: 11.4mm

It doesn't have to be solid, but it does need to be thick enough to not warp / bend under a little pressure.
