• Hey anyone from india.. Wanted to know the cost of the hand and forearm to be printed.

    • assuming you own or have access to a 3d printer material costs depend to a good part on your printing skills. After a few years of printing I still have around 30% failures in printing parts.
      You will need about 4kg of material for the “good” parts. This however is only a fraction of the total costs, think of a pc, arduinos, cables or nervo…[Read more]

    My printing guy said that the cost will be doubled if i go with 3 shells.

    P.s. I am a student so i just want to make the hand for demonstration.

    • Sounds like you need a new printing guy. 3 shells are necessary for strength. I did not even know you could print with one shell. Look around for someone better.

  • Hey ..!
    I am printing the hand and forearm and the guy who is printing said that 3 shells will mess up the dimentions and recommended me to go with one shell. what should i do?

    I am totally new to 3D printing…
    thanks

    • You need the recommended 3 shells for strength.
      Running with 1 shell will reduce the filament usage and reduce the print time.
      If the guy said the dimension will be messed up, then he doesn’t have his slicer program setup correctly.
      Most likely over extruding.
