Got into 3d printing April of 2020. This is the result so far. Lol

I say it's a good idea. A lot of people underestimate 3d printing and thing it's really weak. The materials have gotten a lot better since when it first came out, and it's way cheaper too.At different times of the year I am requested to make AutoCAD 3D models of machine parts.
I send these out and presto parts get shipped.
These find there way to different CNC shops.
I've been only working on Glock slides thus far, of course not complete yet.
Maybe I need to broaden my horizons to plastics?
All good questions!Out of curiousity (I know, I know...it killed he cat!) how much does it cost to produce one? How much does it weigh compared to a stock unit? And how long does it take to complete one? I'm too old to do that sorta thing but it intrigues me..
That is really great...I have a P80 and thought it wouldn't be too long until someone made their own...I wish when I was younger this technology was out...But, I wouldn't want to be young again. Great job!All good questions!
It costs me $4 in material to make one. It weights similar to stock, I'd have to weigh it to get exact numbers. If I had to guess it might be a tad lighter.
And it took me about 36 hours to print!
