    I just recently got a 3D printer and would be willing to print parts anyone needs if they can send me the file.

    Just seeing if there is much interest in this type of thing. The Taco 3d gimbal for phantom 2 vision is 3d printed in china.

    What material(s) can you print with? And do you know the strand sizes or tolerances (how precise) you can print?

    Materials:
    ABS & PLA Plastic (Most colors if picky)

    Resolution:
    0.20, 0.25, 0.30, 0.35, or 0.40mm
    and 200,250,300,350, or 400 microns

    Depends on what you want? I use a Solidoodle 4, and am pretty happy with it. It was $999.

    The reason I guessed that is because it is one of the few that use 1.75mm media. A vast majority use 3mm. I have had a SD3 for quite a while now

    The newer budget ones hitting the market are about $500 and do a fine job. You can find models at any price going up from there, topping out somewhere in the ionosphere. A $500-2000 printer will do a fine job.

    Eh? I was under the impression it was pretty evenly split between 1.75 and 2.85. The makerbots and clones alone would skew the majority to 1.75 I'd think. Either way, plastic is plastic :)

    The objects most often printed would be: http://www.thingiverse.com/Motorpixiegimbals/designs but then again, there is a lot of prototyping going on there :)
    If you have a GoPro, there are a lot of useful things to be printed, and of course there is the always useful leg extension from Joakim Krassman: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:337486. To be honest, I prefer to draw my own stuff using Autodesk Fusion 360, since "precise" is not always what people be, when drawing stuff. My approach is to draw things precise, and then adjust the printer accordingly, most people though, draw things so that their specific printer(calibration) will print it to their needs...

    Hspain16; as the model is not available for those landing gear, printing or directly replicating it would be copyright theft. Maikelsdesign designs parts for us as a source of income. If you come up with / design your own landing gear, best that you do so in a unique fashion, preferably in a manner suited to your unique purposes.

    Nsrwholesale; I haven't had a huge amount of interest in my designs on Shapeways yet, but one of the things that people have baulked at is the cost, including postage. If you're in the US or Europe, would you like to become a producer / distributor of parts for me, assuming I get enough sales to justify it?
