    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to have a 92mm to 120mm fan adapter printed.

    The adapter needs to be about 3 mm thick. All the off the shelf ones are about 10 mm.

    Can anyone design and print one for me ? Ofcourse I'll pay you for your time.

    Request for quote

    Hi,

    I would like to get a quote for the following 3D Model - I have drawn a rough sketch. The sketch is crude and I simply cut it out of a rectangular block, but the internal of the container is actually hollow.

    I am Sydney based and I would like to pick this up physically, so the printer owner should preferably be based in Sydney.

    (please download from here , https://www.dropbox.com/s/oj2b8pfbtrf26p6/LaBoBo1-1.stl?dl=0)


    I understand there is a limit to the size, and I am thinking of scaling down to about:

    Width = 240mm
    Height =311mm
    Dept = 140mm

    Or possibly scaling down even lower to fit people's 3D Printer.

    Your sketch has lots of errors and lots of overhangs i.e a it cannot be printed without support. The object itself is too big for a common 3d printer.
    On Cura estimated time to print is 48hrs!!!

    The object inside the block is also hanging in mid air it seems.
    I'd suggest to fix the model before asking for quotes, you'll probably get more responses...

    I think you should reconsider your design. You might find it easier and cheaper to build with laser-cut MDF or acrylic. You can then add 3D printed parts as needed.

    Even on my largest printer, the max print volume is 280x180x160. Nothing wrong with a long print, I've done over a hundred hours before in a single print, but it will cost you more...

    I've sent you an email via the forums! Not in Perth, but I can get it to you quickly.

    Hi guys,

    I need something 3D printed rather quickly. It needs to be in black ABS and has 79279.33 mm3 volume. I have a 3D printer but it not completely set up for ABS yet so I need this prototype done in the mean time.
    It is my own design so pm me for the files/details.

    TYA!

    It's helpful if you can post where you are located, so that we can quote for postage correctly, if necessary.

    I can do a print in "natural" (off-white) PETG for $13 posted in a "large letter" mailer.

    Those should be printed in ABS with 100% infill, on a specific orientation, or they won't work.

    I'm already aware of the printing orientation, but why would PETG not work? This isn't your grandma's PLA ;)

    PETG just doesn't have the right properties. Even low temperature (non-enclosed) ABS prints will fail.

    /edit

    I'm talking about the delid tool.
