Hi All

I am unable to find anybody that can print the Reset Buttons in Victoria Australia.

If anybody is getting the Tape Reset Button Printed I would like 6 Please depending on price sent to Australia.

Thanks Ray

Hi all,


I got the drawings back and also an estimate from the company I used to work for.
They'd outsource it to a 3d printing company.


They're quoting £7 each part and £40 set up fee.


Let me know your thoughts. I don't have a 464 that needs one of these (yet). I could take the one from my modded 464 to test against.


I'll go over the number of people that were asking about them and work out how much it would be for you all (before postage, as that'll depend where in the world you are).

Had a look over the posts there to see who was after some of these.


Looks like it was just two people:


Audronic :- 4       £28
00WReX :- 4 or 5 £28 - 35


Set up fee is £40 remember (which I was surprised about). So split that over the two and you're both looking at a pricey piece of plastic (£48 to £55).
Let me know if you'd like them and I'll get things in motion.
I'll understand if you don't fancy spending that on them and would rather look elsewhere.

Also, let me know if i've missed anyone.

@geebus
Thanks for following this up.
I will also wait for a more cost effective way.
Thanks

No worries. I was hoping for something around £2-3. Was surprised by that.
I might look for some other methods too.

hello everyone. after a freakish accident resulting to 17 stiches on my forearm and a severed thumb tendon I am back in action. If all goes well within the next 2 weeks I will be a 3D printer owner so after some testing I will be able to print some buttons up.I do not know if PLA is strong enough for pressing onto it or I should look at some other material but we are talking me being a total noob on this. If all goes well I will be able to print and sent out. Please note that worldwide posting with tracking from Greece is 5.3 Euros. Postage costs are ridiculus here as they charge 2.8 euros for 100 grams plus 2.5 Euros for the tracking number. From bitter experience something this small should be sent with a tracking number associated with it.
I do not know about the actual cost of the buttons but it seems to me to be really small as I have never run a 3D printer before. If oobdoo is ok with it I would use his files and of course I am not going to make a profit on this as I am not the original designer of the file.

Welcome to the club. The crazy new German postal rules means that nothing other than paper documents can sent for less than €10!

Expensive sending into Europe here, about 8 quid for a small package.  Maybe they've cottoned onto making loads of cash from all the parcels going back and forth   After brexit it will probably be even more expensive  another excuse to put prices up
