Hi Ian. I first had new cabinet pulls made. That worked out well, so when I had two good gear boxes with three broken covers (the plates on the top and bottom of the gear box), I had those printed, too. So far they seem to be holding up well.
I agree that 3-D printing will become a very helpful tool with items that aren’t too complicated. With multiple compound curves it requires a very sophisticated 3-D scanner that drives the cost up a lot, especially for small numbers.
I understand that 3-D printing can also be done with a variety of different metals, but haven’t had a need to try that yet. Materials can add significantly to the cost as well.

Which parts did you have made ? 3-D printing could play a huge role in replacing parts that are no longer in production.

I had some made by 3D printing in nylon that seem to be holding up. Contact Ronan at Pro 3D Printing Services +1 (410) 831-5891
They were $150 each with the cost of design work.
