I'm not talking about "I played one on TV."

I have two little projects I'm working on.

On one, need a little advice on the "key words and tricky phrases" for having something (A GA-8 Airvan) 3D printed someplace.

The other, looking for someone who can create a 3D model of something for either full-size mockup creation, or a scale reproduction. 

Punters (as they say in the UK) need not apply.

Maybe I'm not an expert but I am an engineer and have done my fair share of 3D modeling and can create just about any part from 2D drawings. (Inventor is my choice of software)

About a year ago I bought my own printer and have been trying out different designs and materials, one of my first projects I did was recreating a plastic gear in a belt sander that I couldn't source anymore. Worked pretty well. I've been through a lot of trials with my printer and have learned a lot about what works and what doesn't (heated bed temps, nozzle temps, travel speed, fill percent, etc.)

Not for the price, Phil. Geez.

As one that is far from a "punter" when it comes to 3D printing and modeling, go the Shapeways route. Looking for a freebie or a discount is just insulting those who do it for a living.
