    Nice! Is this just going to be on Etsy or also on Shapeways? I don't own a 3D printer...

    Also very nice that its designed for PE and not the classic ones. I hate the HFGs.

    Thats would be a big no. The joints are tight enough on Deadend but the PE hands are extremely loose and they handle wont work with the CW hand. that be said it wont be hard for me to design a CW compatible handle

    Its a lot cheaper for you if i offer these from Etsy. They may not be as good a quality but will be $40 dollars cheaper. Dont worry I will offer international shipping soon.

    No. I use thingie verse to down load stuff but i dont up load yet. Etsy is for hand made or vintage items. Since i print at home i can sell on Etsy. If you ever feel adventurous enough to try 3d printing. The Monoprice select mini runs for $220 here in the US i own two of them they work awesome(one slightly modded)

    That's actually a great little printer, was my first. Still use it, albeit highly modified... Be great to see some of this stuff on Thingiverse, but I get people not wanting to release designs if they're selling on Etsy etc.

    That filament actually looks like a good match, info? Nice job on the rifle split as well, could see that being tricky to print as a single piece, regardless of supports/adhesion methods. That said, if you want someone to test... :)

    MPSM is still running, but pretty much only for PLA. Hypercube is doing the bulk of my printing right now and can handle PETG a little better than the MPSM. It'll print with good quality at 60 mm/s vs the 30 I need with the Mini and this filament. Then just waiting on my extrusions to do a Hypercube Evo up and then after that we'll see. Toss up between finally doing a desktop CNC, a DLP printer, or building a giant DBot. Dual extrusion would be great.

    I actually think I like building the printers more than actually printing stuff on them...

    Thats actually pretty sweet. Honestly I love to build one my self and have thought about building my own. I just dont have the know how to do so. it took me over a month To fix and replace the hotend for one of my Monoselect Minis. all i can say is i was surprised that it worked after i was done. I am thinking about increasing the build plate and add a few internal cooling fans for circuits and stepper motor but it requires a bit of a learning curve.

    If you can do the Maximus/Brutus upgrade you could build a printer. They're a lot simpler than you think. Stick to well known controllers and you're laughing.

    Looks like you have your Minis pretty dialed in. What settings are you using? What slicer?
