    The OX router build section has a list of members who will make plates and parts for OX (and variants) builds.
    Are there members in this group who are willing/able o print parts for various printer builds?

    I would like to start accumulating parts for a printer, but do not have access to anyone locally who can print the parts for me to get started. I suspect I am not alone. Does anyone on here do this? Does the printer to be built matter if the stl files are openly available?

    If this is doable, perhaps we should put a list in a "sticky" for new builders.

    3D print in Quebec, Canada

    I will! I have a Prusa i3. I can print in PLA and PLA/PHA (much better, but twice the price...). I can print ABS too, but I hate it so I prefer not to...

    Thanks for starting the list. Perhaps you might explain the difference in the properties of PLA and PLA/PHA for those who are considering builds. Are there some parts that will benefit more than others from the PLA/PHA combo?

    PLA/PHA is simply stronger, less brittle and has less warping, but, as I said before, twice the price :p

    Once I get Bumble Bee running you can put me on the list too.
