Keyword - might - as we said, most of the cost is in material used, so if you plan it out skillfully it need not break the bank.

I see you got the hang of the curvy bits :D

by the way, don't forget that you can add a fancy texture or lettering to the surface and the cost will not change, actually it might go down if you remove material.

If you're wanting to model a real handle, you can take a number of pictures depending on how symmetrical it is and use them as sketch pictures. All sort of crazy lofting and surface work is possible with that.

Gents,

I saw a newly introduced 3d printer that uses a liquid polymer in a similar manner as the STL machines. It's progress will be interesting. Seems the 3D modeling curve is the steepest.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/b9creations/b9creator-a-high-resolution-3d-printer?ref=live

It is indeed a Kickstarter project. I noticed it while surfing around Ultimatespudgun Mike's project.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mikebond/ti2-pen

JSR, I wish all the best on the new endeavor. Any job we might come across will be submitted for your consideration.

BTW, Mike is making small molds for plastic injection machines.

Aloha

Since LeMaudit is made of stronger moral fibre than myself, we actually purchased licences for ours :roll:

We looked into this type of printer but what really sold us on the elite was the strength of the material, without really compromising on the print quality.

JSR, I wish all the best on the new endeavor. Any job we might come across will be submitted for your consideration.


Cheers :) anything we can help with let us know.
