    Not sure if the right section but does anyone know if there's an online service where you can order 3D prints, like give them the thingiverse URL and money and they send you the quantity you pay for? That type of thing.

    Shapeways off the top of my head, it's on the pricy side but quality and dimensional accuracy are fantastic.

    Depending what you are doing it's likely to be cheaper to buy your own.

    An Ender3 is <£200 and more than capable for most people's needs

    I need four of these: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2691439

    I'd be impressed if it was cheaper to buy the printer :p

    Yea, maybe not for those.

    I'll run you some off and bung them in the post

    Not a problem, they're a quick print and quite literally pennies in material

    Hi man, haven't seen anything yet, postage could be messy because of the virus/lockdown, that or one of my family took the mail in and hid it, it's been known to happen.

    Guaranteed it will be the post. I’ve been waiting for the postman for a week.

    The clips arrives today @Frozennova, many thanks, think they're even better than the originals too :)

    Good to hear.

    PETG is amazingly springy if you print it right
