Cheap 3D Printing Service

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Does anyone know of a really cheap 3D printing service? They also have to be able to print something big, because this project is huge, otherwise I would print it myself on my printer. I just don't want to pay $500, which is what I got quoted by 3dHubs, for a cylinder 303mm by 457mm. ITS HOLLOW. Thanks!

If you already have a 3d printer, why not just supersize it?  It would definitely be cheaper than $500 to double the size of a Prusa i3 for example.  You already have the motors and controllers, that's the most expensive part.. You can build a frame twice the size for pretty cheap with extruded aluminum.

I don't think I could do that with mine. I have the monoprice select mini.
