Replying in a moment.
anyone able to print me 2 of these in black i guess..?
closer to murray bridge the better.. but can be posted if needed
No idea about 3d printing, but would assume this needs to be done with something fairly hard? If that makes sense..
So the options on hardness with 3D printing are:
Whether to print with sparse infill (a kind of hollow interior) or as a solid part.
And the plastic to use. PLA is the cheapest, but softens over 55c, and is rigid, and a bit brittle. PETG has more flex, and is less brittle, and softens over 80c. ABS has the same flex as PETG, survives impacts the best, and is the least brittle, softening at 110c.
I could do the two printed solid in PLA for $27, and $30 in PETG, and $35 in ABS. Postage included.
had a pm from another member that's more local
No problem at all! We're all just here to help out. Hope that saves you some dollars!
Great service you guys provide.
Hey cool, I'd never noticed this thread before.
I'm in Perth if anyone local needs something printed. Done plenty of ABS/PETG prints, haven't started with the ABS yet.
could someone print this for me? https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1016737
Looks like a nice print.
May i ask your location ?
Any preference of colour or matierial ?
Could someone tell me how much something like this would cost
Black or white, which ever is cheaper, material. I would probably need to make an adjustment to the top section and create bigger gaps between devices, just need to work out how.
EDIT: Spacing would be similar to this
Have you been sorted out by Mathuisella?
I have helped out dozer
yes thanks nibennett for printing this, and everyone who responded to help.
anyone able to provide me a quote on printing this in black with a white button?
I've sent through a private message.
Can anyone tell me how much to print one of these (3 separate pieces) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3448739
So, this is a pretty large print, if the file units are MM. The person who printed this might justify calling the mass manufactured version overpriced, because you could print it for a bit less than it seems to be getting sold for online, if your time was free, and you had a decent printer set up and calibrated. But I just couldn't justify doing such a large print for so little. As a base quote, I'd start at $110 for the three parts.
Yeah at the price I'd rather get the original. I think he mentioned it was printed at 20% infill ? does that mean it's hollow, and did you account for that in your quote?
Yep, as soon as anyone takes into account wear and tear on their machine, their time, the filament etc it becomes quite expensive.
It uses pretty much a whole roll of filament so anyone printing it will need to factor in some extra for if they have any issues. (No printer is 100% on every print)
So there is minimum of $30 of filament.
Its almost 48hrs of printing (At 20% infill), at my normal $2 an hour for PLA you'd be looking at $96 minimum + Postage.
