I've been making some modifications to my grinder, namely removing the doser and adding a small hopper, which seems to be a fairly common thing. Especially for those using ex-commercial grinders in the home. After hunting around for parts to do the mods, I ended up drawing what I needed in CAD and have started 3D printing them. I've only got around to printing the hopper so far, aiming to do the doserless funnel this week. Got me thinking, would this be a useful service to offer around? And if so, how much would people be prepared to pay? The cost of materials is not too much, but the electricity to run the printer adds up (my hopper took 6 hours to print), and I would need to consider my time to draw up the pieces in CAD and set up/maintain the printer. I wouldn't be looking to turn a profit as such, but equally I wouldn't want to end up out of pocket. Thoughts?
A few pics were asked for in another thread, I started working on this polish a long time ago and then had a very busy year and it just took a back seat. I finished it recently and also finished a printed motor cover. I had planned to make a PF holder for it as well, but just never got around to it... maybe I still will. I may sell it on however if I decide to purchase something else.
