    Hi all.

    Just a quick one. I have a want for something that is 3d printed. Would anyone be able to print it for me? I would of course cover materials, shipping and other costs.

    If you think you can let me know and we can sort something out.

    Thanks
    Pete

    There's a couple of maker spaces in Manchester that you might want to investigate:
    Hackspace Manchester - has an open evening every Wednesday
    A couple of Manchester libraries also have 3D printers available
    MadLab also has a fab space.

    I think these might be a better bet - it looks like it takes about 3 hrs per unit, which might be a bit much for some. I'd offer to help, but my printer is in the middle of being upgraded (again) :sigh:

    In failing all of the above, I use shapeways for my 3D print requirements. Loads of material choices, not terrible prices (IMO/IMLE) and reasonable shipping.

    I've not had a bad print from them yet.

    Posting in the Modding forum might attract replies from people with the kit. Some only post there.

    For cheap prototyping, MakeXYZ are usually the lowest possible printing price, but you get basic-reprap-quality prints rather than professional SLS as you'd get from Shapeways (for most plastics. Ceramic, metal, and sandstone use different processes).

    Hey, happy to help for reasonable cost (We can work something out)

    But I'm away from this weekend, so probably wouldn't be able to get it printed for a couple of weeks from now.

    Each set of three parts would take me about 4hrs to print on my Prusa Mk2. 3D Hubs rates are about £12 for a set of three. I could probably do it for about £10 a set.

    Let me know if you're interested and exactly how many of each bits you need, then I can run the numbers properly.

    I would want 2 of the File named mount as these are the rack ears and then 14 of the other 2 parts as these are the 2 parts that mount to the Pi's and for the main structure

    If you're in city centre, and are happy to wait until I get around setting up my autoleveler (and assuming something else doesn't break this time), I could possibly save you the shipping cost. Don't want to step on Guinevere's toes though.
