This is early to ask this question, but what would be the high point for pricing on what the community would want to pay for a 60% resin 3D printed SLA case?
The reason I ask is that I have some designs that would only work with something like the Form 3L that was just announced, but the amount of resin it would take to print them may make them into $150+ cases.
I had a unique design I saved from two years ago that is too complex to print on a standard FDM printer (I made one amazing print out of dozens of printing attempts), but I’d love to try a group buy one day if enough people are interested in a clear resin SLA printed case that would push the limits of 3D printing.
I created a macro pad version of the design for the NovelPad and haven’t put it up for sale because it would need to cost about $75.
I’d probably start first with finalizing my design for the NovelPad and running a smaller group buy to see how it functions in daily use and perhaps not sell the NovelPad case at a profit.
SLA is expensive, but it doesn’t have the same design limitations of FDM printing, so I could create some really striking Laserwave and Cyberpunk designs with RGB in mind.
SLA is also different from traditional injection molded plastic and even CNC machining - so you could create objects that were either impossible, or extremely difficult to mold or machine.
