Quoted from liorillusion:
AS I SAID!!!!! ITS NOT 3D PRINT ITS HAND PAINT 8 HOURS AND CASTING WITH RESIN! WHAT WITH ALL THE MONEY I SPENT AND MY TIME TO PRINT IT AND TO DESIGN IT? OVER 1 YEAR AS YOU CAN SEE. I REALLY HATE PEOPLE LIKE YOU
when youre buying a dvd with a movie you pay 20$ 20$ for a disc?!?!? wow so expensive!
5$ FOR THIS PRINT HAHA YOURE FUNNY. IF ITS SO CHEAP DESIGN YOUR OWN IDOL. GOOD LUCK
AND YES FREE REPLACEMENT I SOLD OVER 40 RAMPS AND NOTHING BRAKES IM DOING LECTURES FOR 3D PRINTING AND CASTING FOR 5 YEARS AND I HAVE OVER 26 PRINTERS. HAVE A GOOD LUCK TO PRINT IT UPSIDE DOWN
Wow. I was simply asking if you'd consider selling the 3D model file, not the model that you are making the castings with if that's what you were thinking? I completely understand you put a bunch of work into what you've done. I've made my own parts many times, both doing it the way you're doing and also 3d printing them. A 3d print is NOT what you're making. I get it. I disagree with you that it won't break at some point, but you're making them so you do what you want. I have no idea why you got so upset over my comments, they were not meant to be inciteful. All you had to do was say you weren't interested in selling it.
And yes, I would 3d print it upside down. I'm familiar with the part. I don't need it to look like a complete custom job as you're doing. And if you have 26 printers and you can't print that model for $5 of plastic, then I don't know what you're doing or plastic is extremely expensive. Plastic here is about $15 for a whole spool, and I would estimate that part to take maybe a third of a spool. I sell 3d printed items and I have designed many parts, so I have a good idea what I'm talking about. If you want to print it right side up, that's a lot of support. I don't have the game in front of me, but I don't believe there is much in the way of overhangs to that part, but even if there were you would use far less supports supporting the outer edge than the entire inner area. Otherwise you could also slice the model in half and print it vertically and it might even need less support.
Whatever. I guess we have to agree to disagree if you don't think what I'm saying is true. I wasn't trying to get you so angry, and I was complimenting your part design.
