WHO WANTS TO PRINT MY 3D Printed Gifts? (Rephrased...)
December 4, 2012
Every year I make my future mother- and sister-in-law custom gifts (usually a horse and an owl, respectively.) This year it occurred to me that I could create them digitally and have another LMRtian with a 3D printer print them for me, giving me a chance to spread a few bucks around.
If anyone is willing to do this with me, can you give me an idea of what it would run me for pieces that would fit in a 10cm3 volume (the owl would actually probably be 5x5x10, the horse 5x10x7) and if you can work with files generated from open source warez available to Motorolla Macs (ie, can you print from a Sketchup file?) If those dimensions are just outside of your abilities, let me know how big you can go and I might be able to scale down.
Also I suppose it would be important that you could accept Paypal and have time to do it and ship it before the relevant holiday...
