You only pay the material, which for most prints is a trivial sum, and shipping.

Almost nothing. Should weigh less than 50 grams, so depending on the material, just a few dollars. Pick a case from thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=raspberry+case&sa=) and a material and Ill work it out, but probably less than $2 in material cost.

Yeah Ill ship internationally, at your expense.
Maximum size is 20x20x20cm. Im a bit hesitant to accept huge prints though, as Im working out some firmware issues that causes the print to stop. Not fun after a 12+ hour print.

How strong does it need to be? If I use a pattern infill with ~1mm perimeters (stronger than you would think, but still not unbreakable) its around the same as raspberry case, a few dollars. If I have to print it with solid infill for maximum strength, it will use a fair bit of filament. Guessing $10 worth, but cant slice atm to tell you exactly.


just noticed its a gun sight. Sorry, no guns, or gun parts.

It's not a gun, gun sight, or gun part. It has nothing to do with the operation of a firearm. It's a tool that works the same as C-Clamp

Im going to stay as far away from printing/shipping gun or gun related parts as I can. Even if its a cleaner. Thank you for understanding.

Why is it a free service?
You are paying for the electricity to run it
You are using your own free time for other people
Watchs the catch?

Cause Im a nice guy ?

There is no catch although clearly I cant do this for free forever and I cant accept every request. But Ive got a printer, and I spend kilometers of filament experimenting (and learning), I may as well use it to print some stuff people can use or want to have. Its not like I bought the printer because I really needed one, I just wanted one Smiley.

Electricity cost is a non issue btw. The current setup is powered by a 100W PSU and actually draws closer to 50W on average. With the new heatbed it will be more, but nowhere near enough for me to worry about. The spotlight I mounted on it draws more.

RasberryPI cases will not be worth it though.
You can get them for around 2$ from Aliexpress.

Which is true for all things that are made in large volume. With volumes in the 1000s (never mind millions for rasperry cases) injection moulding is infinitely cheaper (and faster) than 3D printing. The thing with 3D printing is that is can print one off pieces while still being affordable. Perfect for crazy experiments, own designs or things you come across on thingiverse.

I mean, can you buy this on Aliexpress?


Or.. this?

Hello, I am interested!

Specifically up for a Raspberry Pi case.

So I just pick one from Thingverse and you'll sort out the rest? I'm based in the UK btw.

If you feel like leaving me a tip: 1MhxTnB5onvEMqF53TDXxVseQZzYZetxw3

Yep, pick one and choose a material/color. Please pick something original Smiley.  Ill slice it and give you a material/shipping cost estimate.
Could be a few days before I get around printing it though, bit of a backlog, especially if you want ABS.

BTW, you can get a timelapse of the print itself. The camera is mounted on the frame, not the moving bed, so unfortunately for most prints the video looks like a blurry mess, but for some types of prints, using one frame per layer it can look awesome. Here is a recent print of some rocket parts:

Probably wont look very interesting for a typical raspberry case though Smiley

Sorry if you mentioned this already, but what do you need to create one of these?  A 3D CAD model, dimensioned drawings, etc?  I have two things in mind that I would be interested in getting. 

One last question, can this material be painted on?  I wanted to make a custom cribbage board and then detail it with paint.

I would need a (faultless) STL file, thats a standard 3D format for these things. A sketchup file might be ok too, but no promises, as sketchup stl export is sometimes a bit dodgy..

If you cant use these programs, but you do have drawings and the model isnt too complex, shoot me a pm, we might be able to work something out; unless the design is really trivial, it wont be for free, but Ill do it for a very reasonable sum.

As for painting; yes you can. Its recommended you use a (automotive) primer first, then  acrylic paints will work fine on both ABS and PLA.

Awesome, It would probably be around 20cm x 20cm x 3-4cm high.  I will work on the CAD file, pretty sure I can export Inventor to STL.  Any idea of shipping cost to US?

Hi, do you think you could print a custom letterpress block?  I have a small hand-operated letterpress machine that I would like to make some business cards on.  The product would look something like these:

http://partsoven.com/products/old-school-meets-new-3d-printing-and-letterpress

I just want one, business card sized (3.5in x 2in, or 8.75cm x 5cm).  I'm not sure how thick it needs to be, maybe 1cm at most?  I would have to do some research on exact dimensions.  Color doesn't matter, apparently it needs to be ABS though (and probably white would be best so that ink can be seen on it).  I can send you a PDF of what I need, as well as some dimensions (how tall the text needs to be raised over the flat part, etc.).  It would be pretty simple, just a couple of lines of text.  Might take me a couple of weeks for me to get everything lined up though, I'm pretty busy at the moment.

Actually, since you would need to put some time into designing the model, you could make a 2nd one for yourself, and I could return ship a batch of 100 custom letterpressed business cards.  Sort of a barter deal.  Your time + materials for mine.  (No guaranteed time frame, it might be months before I get around to setting it all up.)
