    there are lots of online printing services, and they're generally cheap. You just need to provide the file.

    What are you willing to pay then for design work? Typically, that can be outsourced at about $120 to $150/hr. Printing fees are the cheap part. I have a couple 3D printers, but do not have time for design work.

    thats pretty much what i figured.. there's this bit of kit a friend of ours was showing me,
    considering his time to design and perfect said 'tool' i can now understand his asking price..

    its not the printing i'd be paying for

    technically speaking, at 90 bucks a pop.. he's throwing in 'said' printing

    was hoping to get it all done for under 100.. or there abouts.. i'd assume it's pretty easy for someone who can do it.. but it's been a long time since ive used 3d shit.. in highschool.. so i could be wrong i dunno..

    pretty much what i want.. basically a ring with a ledge in it to hold a sheet of carbon

    If you can do a proper dimensioned drawing like that, then I encourage you to take a look at modern CAD software.
    I use Fusion360, you would start by making a sketch just like you've done, then just extruding it.
    Fusion360 is free for home use, and is incredibly powerful. Many many youtube videos to get you started. I particularly like Lars Christensen.
    I will PM you a link to download the STL file you need to get what you've drawn 3D printed. It's about 5 minutes of CAD time. I don't know where you are located to get it actually printed, there are maker spaces popping up in lots of places that might be able to print it, or as mentioned there are online sources.

    Some public libraries have 3D printers, FYI.

    Yes, Richmond had some last I was there. It's a slowly growing thing, gradually we will see them in schools and community centres. *
    There are various "maker" spaces around, in Vancouver there's the Vancouver Hack Space and Makerlabs, the latter certainly has the printers but you need to become a member to use them AFAIK. There are some professional services in Vancouver, not sure if they're more tuned for professional/commercial use.*
    Shapeways is the online one I've heard most about. That's where I'd start. https://www.shapeways.com/

    They're already in schools in the interior. My kid's been 3d printing me stuff for a couple years now.

    It's not commercial grade or 3D metal but he knows how to program and run them.
