Too large for mine sorry.
You need someone with a Makerbot 2 to print those.

Edit - what I've done sometimes is slice the model into smaller pieces in CAD and print those out then glue them together later. Works well.

I'm in the process of modifying my Ultimaker to have a heated bed and temperature controlled build chamber.

I'm already able to get results like this (straight off the printer, no cleanup!):





So I'll let everyone know when it's ready and take on some requests

Ha i was looking at this, my printer is 2.5 times the build size of his, so i should be able to do it in much shorter time frame... still take a LONG time tho.

It'd be far easier, cheaper, and faster to design the body in CAD, buy a big chunk ( or two or three) of foam and get them CNC milled to the 3D shape you drew up. Then glass over them, etc.

How hard would it be to print a broken gear?




Would it be strong enough?

No hugely difficult and it would be strong enough if it's strong enough.

I'm interested in getting some very simple items printed.
I've got the measurements, but wouldn't be able to draw them up myself as I suck at that sort of thing. Anyone able to help out?

I might be able to do that.
I'm not good with 3D CAD but I can simple-ish stuff okay.

I need a bracket printed up (in ABS preferably) which attaches to the rails of my rangehood. years of abuse has finally destroyed it!

can anyone confirm if it can be printed easily and quote how much two of these would cost? they're a mirror image of each other, and measure 80x40x20 at most.

if its reasonable then i'll draw them up when I get some spare time...
