    my only concern is that it is made out of paper, so how durable would it be?

    For prototyping purposes, strong enough. Don't underestimate fibrous materials. :wink:

    I suspect not strong enough for repeated use on a toy, but more than strong enough to make a mold of the part and recast it.

    Not for a residential owner..... they want to make it around the $10,000 range in 2 years, and $5,000 in 5 years.

    But keep in mind these could be more affordable to local print shops or something similar so you only would need to make the model and go there!
