    Howdy

    I need to get a part 3D printed so I can fix some broken gaming headphones, I have an STL file for the part.

    Any recommendations?

    Cheers

    I used Shapeways a lot in the UK, they weren't always the cheapest but I always got something I was happy with.

    I've only ever used Shapeways once, I think it came from the US as it was printed in stainless, but the service was excellent.

    I used DirtyPCB's service, 'cos it's super cheap. Part quality was excellent, but it did take a few weeks to arrive from China.

    Came out good. I’m assuming you only needed the right side casing and insert?

    Or did you need the matching pair?

    I would say just needed the casing but maybe the matching pair would look better.
    Let me know how much and I'll get you sorted.

    Much appreciated
