[closed] Would anyone be interested in paying BTC for 3D printed stuff?

I've got a 3D printer, and wouldn't mind printing some stuff out for BTC. Anyone think there's a market for this sort of thing (on a small scale, obviously)

Dude, yes. That is the best idea. And here I thought me selling some custom drawings for people was a good idea, but you just totally blasted that out of the water.

I am interested and am now doing a transaction with the OP. All is going well so far. The pictures of the item coming within hours is somewhat mindblowing.

I can't think about anything printed I'll need at the moment, but the idea is briliant. It sounds like we are in the future!

Add a small BTC fee of comparable value and eat the fees for now. Looking for better ideas.

I would, and I bet a lot of people would, but the business model for this is tricky in the absence of an escrow service since one of the parties would have to trust the other to deliver. 3D printed parts aren't typically terribly expensive, but there still exists the possibility for fraud on both ends. If you were willing to accept payment on delivery, or half before and after, I imagine you'd have no end of interested customers.

Depends on the price. If it's too high I might be more interested to find someone who will do it cheaper, but only accepts more traditional ways of payment. However, I tend to support Bitcoin and anyone selling, giving services in exchange for Bitcoins IMHO will have that extra appeal over others. Also, there are many people who don't want to sell their Bitcoins for cheap and rather would directly spend them for goods and services at their real, present value.
