    Only reason I mentioned printing to start with was because I thought Bazzer was looking for a one off which would make injection molding very expensive with the cost of a mold.
    On small quantities & prototyping then yes printing is probably far cheaper than injection molding but not on large volumes.
    Agreed, I just wanted to see how well I could make the part. Ive seen what it is - not complex but yes, unlikely to print 1000's even on my larger CM1 'el monstro' printer ...
