Some of you asked for kits of the printed pieces so I contacted the owner of bitfab.io (a 3Dprinting service), who is a nice person, in order to get a tight budget for all the printed pieces of Thor. He sent me this info:
Layer height: 0.32mm
Top and bottom: 0.8mm
Infill: 20% ;
109 printing hours
2.25 kg of PLA
Price: 448€ + VAT
Shipping not included, we ship to the European Union
Thanks for the post, Ángel!
I am Diego Trapero, I run the Bitfab 3D printing service. We did the Thor quotation to help users that don’t have a 3D printer or that don’t want to do the 100+ hours printing job. It will be printed with a Volcano hotend, which allows faster printing (and thus lower price) and better bonding between layers (for more strength).
Now I am suscribed to this thread, feel free to ask any question about the parts.
Honestly if you’re willing to pay for professional 3d printing I would think that going for a better material then pla. I see PETG as the minimal for functional prints like Thor. It no longer costs significantly more than PLA and has much better mechanical properties.
