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

@Bill,
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.
