Hello fellow makers!

I'm an Industrial Designer that specializes in Product Design.
I'm SolidWorks certified and I work from home in a live/work loft.

I do 3D printing, CAD, and Product Photography on the side:
http://rapidwhale.com/

Printer:
I own and print with a finely-tuned 3D printer. The quality I can achieve with this 3D printer is on par with some of the professional FDM machines.

Materials:
I am only able to print in ABS and UltraT (a mystery polymer that is stiffer than ABS). ABS is my default print material.

3D Software:
I own a (legitimate) seat of SolidWorks 2013, and that is my go-to CAD software.

(STL or Parasolid (.x_t) file types)


Notes about pricing:
- $30 minimum -

I will be quoting based on machine-time and human-time.

Machine-Time:
$10 - $18 / hour

Human-Time (if you request post-processing):
$40.00 / hour

Human-Design-Time (if you request design work):
$50 - $100 / hour

Because makeXYZ requires a "cost per volume":

I have tried to estimate my machine-time costs relative to part volume, and it comes close to $0.75 - $1.50 per (solid) cubic cm depending on layer height (or $12 - $24.00 per (solid) cubic inch). Your CAD software should be able to tell you the volume of your part. This should allow you to get a very rough estimate. For a proper estimate, please just take the steps listed above.


Note about rush orders:

If necessary, I allow rush-orders for a $100 fee. My typical turn-around time is within 24-48 hours, but if you have a large-job or there are other jobs lined-up before yours, then I can't make any promises to deliver so quickly. For $100 I am willing to bump your job in the Que, and wake-up at odd-hours to tend to the machine.

Thank You.

Shockingly efficient and excellent! I found Josh while searching for 3D printers to PURCHASE. Yep, I was prepared to fork over thousands of dollars and commit to the hassle of hardware. The big commercial 3D printing bureaus had nothing but headache for me. So if you come from my experience, this MakeXYZ marketplace is a wonderland. And Josh is the bright beacon bringing a breath of fresh air. Josh exudes efficiency, knowledge, care, accountability... with price and convenience that's DISRUPTIVE to the 3D market (a magic word for entrepreneurs and bonus for end users). Print output has true accuracy proven with a micrometer (hi res 0.1mm but no doubt same for all res levels). Production with support material indicates a superior process. The possibilities become endless for what we do as we're all here for similar purpose. I'm gonna swamp him with all my 3D printing jobs. No mo' buying my own machine! Catch him while you can!

I live in Fremont California and there are many 3D printing services in Fremont, but I choose to let Josh in Emeryville to do my project. It took me around 50 minutes to reach him. Many people will ask me why? It is simply because Josh is an Industrial Designer who also provides CAD design on SolidWorks, I do trust his knowledge and experience can be helpful. After we met, he provided me many valuable recommendations which significantly enhanced my design. During the first prototype build, he also tried many options which allowed us to pick the best one to go. He is also flexible and supportive in expediting the build schedule to meet my urgent needs. His service is far better than I had expected. If you want to have your job done right the first time, Josh is the man for you. I highly recommend him without any hesitation. Johnny Chen.

Josh was great! To start off he was very quick in getting a response and quote back to me. In addition to getting me an estimate, he also addressed some problems with my model and pin pointed them out with some details images to show me exactly what needed to be fixed before printing. He also printed a few additional parts in case I needed them. The part quality is excellent and I recommend Josh for doing any print job. I am definitely working with him again.

First of all, i just want to say that Josh is really knowledgeable and a really cool dude. He did an excellent job printing my project, and gave me really good tutorial on finishes. My project was huge in size and josh was able to help me split up the parts for printing and gluing them together. The print quality was professional, clean, and delivered quicker than anywhere else. I will definitely work with Josh again in the future! Thanks for all your help!

Josh is recognized as helpful and thoughtful by reviewers for good reason. I found him to be more than willing to make my project come alive in 3D while solving a few technical problems with printing tricky parts, and making it in record time. Josh is a great resource.

Josh ran a family of three mechanical parts that were right "on the money" and were cosmetically far better than I had expected. He also went the extra mile in offering helpful suggestions regarding some construction issues that were puzzling me. Highest recommendations.

Josh gave excellent feedback on the nature of 3D printing, including the grain, which never occurred to me. His experience with CAD made a huge difference with my design and made it more robust than what I came up with. Excellent experience.

Josh was super fast with the project, the print came out exactly how I wanted and he was super informative with everything during the whole process. I would give Josh 10 stars if possible! Price was really good too! Thanks Josh! -Cliff

Was such a smooth process, would definitely use Josh again if we decide to print another model. Very speedy, and was more than willing to give free quotes, and advice when asked any questions. Thanks for the good work Josh!

Great service. Quick turnaround. The part Josh printed was exactly what I had hoped for. He provided free advice and took the time to tell me about his setup. Will I use his services again? Count on it.
