3D printers are awesome, I thought about buying one, but I don't have enough reasons yet to get one.......yet.When I bought it I only had a few things I wanted to print out but as time went on I kept finding things to print. It can be frustrating at times when something goes wrong and you have to hunt and hunt and hunt endlessly to find the solution but that is the name of the game in anything.
I got the impression that you didn't realize they offered those. Yes, if it works just as well or better and you're saving money that's great. Maybe you should think about offering them up for sale.When I made it they did not have it available. It has been great for me. I too wish all those goodies were available when I bought the scale from Adam. I have Area419s powder cup, adjustable base, master funnel kit, and now ordered the clear Lexan top. They are all top notch stuff. I just keep finding more and more things to make with my 3D printer.
Just a quick search indicates your printer costs somewhere around $750, I guess if you have other reasons to own the printer then fair enough. It must also take some time to design something like what you did (very impressive BTW), I know what my time is worth, $85 to have everything done right and delivered to my home is a bargainIt cost me around $1200 assembled and delivered. I have since made and sold 4X that amount in products produced by it. This is not a business for me but some people want certain things and I try to make them. It helps me learn more. Some projects are very complex but the centering jig above took around 30 minutes to design and about 1 hour to print.
For those of us that don’t have 3-D printers, some UPS stores do have them and print using the customer’s files. Their prices also surprisingly easy on the walllet too.Didn't know that. Thanks.
Check with them to see which format is preferred.
Youe centering plate looks good gorilla. Which 3D printer are you using?Prusa MK3

I believe you can order the parts separately and I think everything you want is available from them.
Once you get a Giraud everything else will just collect dust.That is a 1000% fact. Since getting my Girard I trim before every reload.
Curious if anyone got a 3D printer who can print a taller A&D wind box pillar? and print the wind deflectors too? Or anyone sell them?I was thinking the same thing. Would like to see it about 3 inches taller.
