Hi Dave and Tom
Forgive my ignorance. The material is definitely plastic and not powder. I don't know whether it's FDM or what that is (I googled it and discovered that it means Fused Deposition Modelling, but that doesn't enlighten me at all.
If they indeed got a commercial FDM machine then the plastic can actually be quite expensive, upwards of $70 per puzzle.
Well the fact that a roll cost $50, and they looked at a standard size cube and thought that a roll would make between 5 and 10 of them, I'm guessing it's probably a very low-quality printer
That said it's still an awesome opportunity for you to get some puzzles made.
I hope so. I've downloaded your 1x2x3 file, Tom (thanks!) and am going to try it on there. I suppose that's the best way to tell how it's going to be.
So, worst case, you guys think it might at least be good for giving me an idea of what a properly working puzzle might look like physically?
