I am ready to have some enclosures made via 3D printing. Where is a good place to go for 2-5 run prototypes? John, are you still here? This is something I really would like to get your input on! :)

Thank you for your time!

Of course I'm still here....a ghost rattling around in the closet! Although sometimes not too often.

You might search for 3D printing locally. My laser vendor also does 3D printing, and maker spaces abound with 3D printers (the biggest use of which may be to make more 3D printers!).

I believe iTead, Seeed and Elecrow also do 3D printing. I don't know what the cost comparision might be between local printing vs. cheaper overseas printing and shipping. Of course all of this is subject to change because of our idiot-in-chief starting tradewars with the world.

Depending on what you are looking for in an enclosure, something off the shelf may be the cheaper way to go.

Thanks for the info Jon! That helps, and yeah, nothing like tradewars to ruin ALL of our days. :(
