I see a lot of people here showing 3d printed items. Does anybody provide 3D printing services? I have the 3D files on hand.
I’ve been known to print things occasionally for people depending on size and complexity. If you want to send me a link to the files and your general location, i can give you a cost estimate.
This company does a lot of printing for our sister companies and they can do FDM, SL and LS style printing.
You can upload your files since you already have something and obtain a quote. I have not used them myself; however, I have talked with them about possible future projects etc. I work for L3 Technologies and we are not exactly a small company so we tend to go with better level services etc. Since I haven’t obtained a quote, I don’t know what your budget is like and can’t even comment on that.
There turn around is supposed to be average of three days. I was discussing having items machined too, but they can’t hold the tolerance requirements of parts I need. I was looking for some parts for high density subsea fiber optic connectors I deal with.
Quoting is free, so nothing lost.
Thanks Harold. I requested a quote. Tim here is the link. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:218230
We’ve often used Sculpteo and Shapeways for SLS 3D printing. Their prices are usually much more competitive than Proto Labs and others.
Guys, consider 3D Hubs. You can find people local to you and get great results and turnaround times. You also get multiple prices from different hubs. I started this way. Eventually I got to chatting with the guy I was using and got good advice regarding printing. Now I own 2 Printers and have my own hub. It’s a community. I am not going to say that every hub is great, that’s why there are ratings on the website. Also, not every commercial service will give you great service and results either…
