    I can do it for you. based in Melbourne
    I have all the colours as well.
    I can do the case in ABS or PLA (as above abs is a far sturdier material, especially in warmer conditions)
    the buttons will be PLA however
    ill probably modify the screw holes as well and use some of these

    at 20% infill the main structure will take about 1.5 days to print and use 340g of fillament
    a fair price is 25 for that structure if printed in pretty run of the mill material like ABS or PLA

    thats insanely cheap lol 18hrs with 0.4 noz and 0.2 layer height here so yeah.

    id ballpark 80 bux for 400-500g prusament pet-g

    imo at 25 $ theres no room for failure and the time spent driving to post office or packing materials isnt even covered

    youre probably printing with the CCTREE ebay special lol to make it worth wear and tear/time/materials

    id take raven up and chuck em extra coin if they're local

    Looks like about $30 of resin, and would need to be split into pieces first unless the person printing had a very large printer.

    (for the main structure)
    343 grams at 20% infill 36 hours print time
    printed on a prusa and using esun pla or abs.
    10mins of post processing
    10mins of sending to printer
    no cost of wear/tear on printer but i did work this out to be $8.50
    .2mm layer height quality settings


    my costs are $8.58 filament + $10.50 in machine wear + $0.69 electricity
    so close to cost price but a fun project, im not on here chasing profits (its a community) but also not looking to lose money (which i won't)

    very good price, shipping/bubblewrap /delivery too?
    id still chuck you some coin ontop for your time /failure / future pei sheet fund <3 legend

    hahahha true that. i tried ebay special abs- somehow it randomly snaps like stale PLA randomly along the spool stuff gives me the heebie jeebies for reliability

    confused abs doesn't know what material it is

    I've had good experience with eBay ABS. Maybe one or two bad experiences out of the 20-odd I've bought?
    The worst I've used is old Aurarum. Knotted and kinked (albeit this roll was apparently when they were still in Keysborough - about 8 years old?) and I've had a few times inconsistent diameters causing a blockage unable to pass through the extruder.

    First time putting up a request here (been considering getting a 3D printer myself but I'm already down into too many rabbit holes!).
    Last night I finished my new SFF on a SSUPD Meshilicious and need a GPU bracket adapter and feet for it. Someone already had the feet done last year.
    I'm in Sydney if that's any help but with the size of these shipping should be easy and cheap.
    What I need:
    - 1 x Gpu bracket: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4904851
    - 4 x feet (2x25mm_A_1 and 2x25mm_A_2): https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0504/5652/7032/files/Feet.zip?v=1620142305
    I believe they materials used for the feet last time were TPU? The bracket on Thingiverse is using PETG, I don't know much about materials but the bracket will be wholding a 3080 which is akmost 2kg heavy. You guys are the experts...
    Oh, and need the feet in black, bracket color doesn't really matter.
    Thanks in advance!

    Nope, no takers so far.
    In the meantime I'm "geting by" using some rubber door stoppers as feet for the case but if someone would be so kind as to print these out for me I'd really appreciate it an wil pay accordingly.
