Just put the file in a standard format (.STL, .STEP, .IGES). "I prefer .stl."

let me know the units used. Put it in the file name(MM/IN).

I don't know a link off hand. I've been 3D printing since 2005. I would just search MakerBot, or Shapeways(paid 3d printing).

Are you willing to do trading for prints, or pay for plastic and shipping?

Thanks, Scooter46290
