3D printing $0.50 /cm³
CAD design $25.00 /hour
Things I've Made
Charging by cm3 makes no sense my price is as follows:
material cost ($30-$50/Kg) + $1/print hour
I drive all over the Bay Area for work, so delivery is possible.
When contacting me, please tell me:
your experience with printing
are you more interested in quality or speed?
What are the measurements of your object? I will charge for any scaling errors that are not my fault.
I am not super experienced, so I will not charge for any failed prints IF they are simple. For intricate designs/poorly made models that I warn you might fail I will charge 50%
I started printing 3/14. If you want cheap, collaborative work, I'm your man. If you want super fast industrial perfection, check back in 6 months :)
I'm not an engineer or an artist. I'm a nurse who is comfortable on my computer and am able to design basic components. Since I'm an amateur, I'm not really comfortable with charging hourly for design - but I am looking for projects to gain experience. I CAN print ABS, but it was so much easier to work with PLA that I have not yet practiced much with ABS.
I am only just learning the limitations of my machine - the official build platform is 13"d X 14"z, but when you get near the edges the quality goes way down.
Check out my photo - the white corners were toward the edge of the print bed and the 45 angle warped a bit. the middle one is printed hollow but filled with hot glue - it's strong cheap and fast, but the slanted edge in the middle collapsed which i can fix. the black one is perfect printed in the middle of the bed. I also plan on experimenting with hollow, resin filled objects for fast, strong printing.
