I would wholeheartedly support these purchases and am quite interested in buying some of these custom molds from you.
The custom metal shapes possible alone would make it worthwhile, even if they are one time use.
I say go for it.

My primary interest ($ to repay the loan) in all this hooplah is to create architectural models to overcome permitting objections. 3D printing enhances my other businesses. My customers would use models to gain community support for building projects. Also.....returning to my roots, my former life in subsea, I will create models for the subsea biz which love this form of communication:
Those two white things? Capras. My babies.
Using 3D printing for my spudding interest is simply for the pure fun of it and advancing the spudding hobby. I have a few ideas for long term big buck projects I just can't pursue right now. I really believe there are gaping possibilities for air cannons not even on the verge of being marketed. I hope to change this.
Those of you with 3D capability......means..... I would need.stl files that "hold water".
For spud related printing only, I would seek a fee that exceeds my cost of printing by 15% plus shipping provided there is no conflict with other printing..
Anybody that has a 3D program has probably already figured out the program is useless unless you can do something with the file.
3D stl sent to me via CD or over the net are great.
Therefore a file that leaks and will not print is a huge PIA.
I'm not interested in fixing files. $60/Hr.
The build chamber is 10 x 14 x 8. You can nest, duplicate and play with shapes until the build space is full or maximized. If parts touch, they will fuse.
There is no wasted space or expensive medium used for support as the part is suspended in unused medium. Parts can be built by combining multiple patterns or gluing RP parts together. The resultant structure is then stronger at the joint.
