This is where the entire process breaks down for me.
I have absolutely no idea how to even begin to find someone local to me (note that I said “local to me”!) to work with me on a print project.
Shapeways is absolutely out of the question. They want an arm and a leg (and a couple of fingers!) for what seems to me to be a very simple, less than 1.5" print, and I don’t have any way to discuss the project with anyone before it gets done incorrectly.
MakeXYZ isn’t much better, because I’ve sent out at least a half-dozen inquiries to people who are supposed to be in my area over the last two weeks, and I haven’t ever heard back from any of them. Ever.
Are there any other sources out there for people I can contact in my local area who might be willing to talk to me first?
Thanks, in desperate frustration…
