    This one's just slightly too big for my printer. I won't be cheap due to its size, parts, time to print. I'll leave it to others to quote.

    $12 plus post. Colours available: black, blue, white, clear.

    not to steal anything, so i'll offer the same price of $12 plus post, the only difference is the colour, i have dark blue.

    I've had a bit of a closer look, It'll take a whole roll of filament it seems, but that's okay, I'd do it for $120.

    I only have Dark blue at the moment for colour

    Not even 500g worth of filament there, i reckon about 350ish. I print a shitload of stuff, latest being mpcnc parts 3 layers with 60% infill.

    ah okay, i took a look, it's got quite a few pieces 14 if i remember right, and figured a smidge under $10 a piece. shrugs. I'm new to the 3d printing stuff.

    If you use S3D i think you can work it out by using preview, i've not tried that yet but i see in the options you can add filament cost and all that kind of stuff in one of the menus so i assume it would be able to tell you how many meters of filament in preview per job.

    Cheers mate just came across them and was curious is all no idea about 3d printing cost or time involved.

    How much would you be asking for a 50 round block them made from acrylic?

    Thanks.

    I believe I have this Balco now sorted. Have done 3 x 16 hour prints with success.

    Anyone in SA that's in need of some PLA prints happy to give it a shot.

    Have some ABS here but not yet attempted.

    Would need to be printed in TPU flexible for it to work, I don't have any of that sorry nor the correct extruder to suit printing it.

    Is anybody able to do a few (12ish) items for me? Basically they're tiles (to make a real dungeons and dragons interact map) ahaha. They're only like, 100mm squared?

    Cheers

    Postage would be great, unless someone that does it is based in Albury or Wagga (I go there frequently)

    Cheers :)

    how high do you need to go? if its not too high and there is no overhang cnc routing some wood, wax or foam might be cheaper and easier

    Each tile is about 5mm. Well we've started with 3d printing already. Unfortunately the person that started it has lost his 3d printer (kaput). So we wanna try and keep it all the same. I know it uses jack all material. And if it was all done and posted at the same time postage costs wouldn't be much

    Plastic lasts longer and is more durable, plus the fact we'll have walls/stairs and stuff. It gets complicated. Haha
