HP Oscilloscope Issue

<< < (5/5)

james_s:
3D printers are for people that want to tinker with 3D printers. 3D printing services are for people that just want a printed part.

Wallace Gasiewicz:
I ordered and received "feet" for my Tek 475 scope. They are very nice and made with a 3 D printer.
I believe that the fellow who made them needed feet for his scope and then made a bunch to sell as they are known to deteriorate even with good care.

The empirical data I've collected seem to be that it takes a bit of doing!! Will try that online idea!

In my experience, well, I don't really mind it. Sometimes a part won't come out just right the first time, but I'm probably more at fault than the printer, especially when printing with more finicky materials such as ABS. Buying a 3D printer was worth it for me. For just the one part, though, I agree, looking into a printing service may be a better option.

Yes it does seem to require experience and trials. More than it is currently worth to me. I will see if I can dig up a online site as suggested!
