I know this might seem a bit premature since I haven’t even received the printer yet but I am going to throw it out there any way.
I would feel really guilt if my new printer were to sit idle so I am trying to see if anyone is interested in 3d printing services in the Annapolis, MD area. I have spoken to a few friends and they are also as excited as me to get some printing done.
I am trying to work out a payment scheme but I suspect that I will not be able to calculate the true cost of printing until I start printing things. My initial thoughts are to charge a set rate on the final material weight plus a set rate on the time it takes to print the item (to offset wear and tear on the printer). I would also be willing to add mailing cost to anyone wanting delivery.
I do want to reduce the cost of the printing service to a bare minimum. I want to build interest in the 3d printing world and besides, I don’t think that I can actually make any significant money at this anyway. Best case scenario I can think of is that I would partly subsidize the purchase of the printer itself.
At any rate please post below if you would be interested in a low cost printing option in the Annapolis, MD area.
