There is 3d software like blender and onshape that is easy to use so you can easily put your ideas to a .igs file. Almost any library has a 3d printer and will print out your files for an small fee $5 for a decent size part. Some even let you use the machine if you bring your own filament.

I've had good luck with MakeXYZ.com. Sort of like 3d hubs but better in my opinion.

Hi Bill,

Sorry for the late reply, but I'd like to add to Andrew's comment. I too had a good experience with 3D hubs. I printed a customized cam holder with bearings and all. You only need to provide the STL file. Warning: 3D hubs will "optimize" the fill rate of your model. It tends to make it lighter, but might compromise structural strength. I don't know if there's any setting for this.

Hope this help. Cheers,

I have 3d printed clamps for carbon fiber tubes. I just finished a design that converts a standard DJI 450 to use CF tubes instead of the plastic arms. I have a printer, would gladly print some parts for you as I'm interested in doing the same thing - covering the printed parts with CF

Trying using the official 3D Printing Service of CADDrones.com which is 3DHubs.com! You should be able to find someone local using that.

I don't have a 3D Printer, but I would like to print some parts.  Rather than build a 3d printed fuselage, I am using carbon fiber tubes and plates.  What I would like to do is print the tube clamps and other hardware on a 3D printer and reinforce them with CF/Epoxy.  I have used Shapeways before, but I would really like to find someone local who can do the printing for me.  I need fast turn around which I don't get from Shapeways.
