Re: Want something 3d printed?

Right now I have no spare capacity, seems everyone was waiting until after christmas to order and now we're swamped, going to be at least a month until I can take on new orders, sorry.

Re: Want something 3d printed?

Thanks for the update. A month could fit my time frame pretty well. Do you have any information on the strength of materials which could be used for printing? I have a couple small projects upcoming and may be able to print the prototypes instead of making them by hand on lathe/mill.

I don't have an established 3d printing workflow. Can you work with Vectorworks STL files or is something else preferred??

Thanks.

I use PLA which is pretty strong depending on the size of the object, really depends on the intended use.

STL files are fine

Re: Want something 3d printed?

no capacity again at the moment, while the printers are busy earning their keep I've been busy finishing something I started printing a while ago

at the start of the bank holiday weekend it looked like this

Well, I'd like a 4cm tall replica of the Basel basilisk, but I don't have any files to go along with this wish....

Re: Want something 3d printed?

busy with commissions at the moment so no free space for large projects, if you have something fairly small I might be able to squeeze you in

Re: Want something 3d printed?

bigblue2, maybe an idea for you.

"Some 1,400 3D-printer owners have pledged to use their machines to help make face shields for the NHS.

Started by palliative-medicine doctor James Coxon, the 3DCrowd UK group is now looking to recruit more volunteers.

It says thousands of its 3D-printed masks have already been made and donated to hospitals, GPs, pharmacies, paramedics and social-care practices."

Finally something useful to do with our 3d printer I always thought is wasted money and a source of dust. They've been trying to do the same in CH, glad we would be able to help soon... (I hope)
