    Try searching for a "Makerspace" in your area.
    Alternatively, some schools & universities have 3D printers.

    For something similar (but smaller), I did some research on this in April and the best value option I could find once taking into account minimum order costs etc. was RENND (https://www.rennd.com), and I printed with rABS

    I didn't try to haggle on eBay though, you might get better there (and for sure, cheaper if you can access the kit directly). Given I was spending <£20 including shipping I couldn't really be arsed with all that.

    I see RMC and The Retro Future advertising PCBWay a lot on their youtube channels. Might be one to check out.

    There are too many different offers on ebay, you need to search for yourself. Perhaps you can find a person not far from you. For example, I order 3D printing from the same person, even though he lives very far away. It turns out that I need to pay both for printing and for delivery.
