    I don't suppose you're going to make the 3D printer file available are you? Not that I have one yet, but thinking about getting one and this is the sort of thing it'd be nice to have for! I understand if you're trying to keep it though so you can sell them.

    Sorry, the files won't be public. But! Once you get your printer this would be a good geometrical shape to design for your first try, if you haven't had any prior design experience.

    Is there a reason that you didn't print them out in black plastic? I'm just wondering cause I'll probably spraypaint mine black as well, and was wondering if there was any special reason for the choice of white.

    I tested several colors from the contractor that printed them and white turned out the best, both in asthetics and durability, from their printer. Even though all 3D prints have minor imperfections the other colors were not acceptable.

    Also I tried several different materials from different places including shapeways with no luck until now.

    And with that! We have sold out. Thank you everyone for ordering!

    For those that may still be interested I have another order coming but they will need prep work and assembly first. I'll update this thread when they are available.

    Hey Mike that design looks good!

    Who's doing your printing for you? From the look of those parts, there really shouldn't be any finishing work needed done? It looks like they'd be able to be taken straight from the print bed and packaged up.

    I'd assume you'd have your own equipment by now! ;)

    Yes it was. You should have received a tracking number via email from PayPal. If you didn't I can email it to you.
