Need someone who has a 3D printer

Hi guy's, I have 3D data for two brackets for a Commodore C64C computer. These brackets allow a Ultimate64 board to be mounted inside a C-64C. I will pay you for the material and time and the cost of shipping to Calif. I can email the files (readme, stl files and photo's.) In the Readme doc. has the following info.:
# Print Settings
Printer Brand: XYZprinting
Printer: da Vinci Jr. 1.0 Pro
Rafts: Yes
Supports: Yes
Resolution: 0.2
Infill: 30%
Using 0.2 at 30% seems rigid enough for me.

Granted, the local 3D printing houses here in southern California are exorbitantly expensive, but the overwhelming majority of home 3D printers produce rough, unappealing objects.

There are many 3D printing service bureaus that will produce solid, good looking pieces in a variety of materials.

Take a look at these places and get quotes for your STL files:

Check with your local public library.  Many have 3D printers for public use.  There may be a time limit, such as print jobs need to be under 4 hours.

Thanks for the info. Will check them out. Not in any hurry.

Things are changing very rapidly, Jeff, and I've had recent experience with a number of models from the Chinese manufacturers Anet and Creality, who produce many of the inexpensive fused filament consumer printers used.  From that experience, I don't agree with you.    For those that I've tried, geometry (how the part is oriented within the build envelope, divided where necessary to limit overhang and the need for support structures, infill pattern and density [some combinations cause vibrations at resonances that amplify problems]), and settings make the difference, not the brand or the notional "grade" that their price indicates.  Very many, probably most of them, are derived from the makerbot style that was in turn derived from reprap.org open-source hardware and software.  Here in Sydney, we've found enthusiastic owners who'll collaborate through owner groups, small-scale online vendors (even local ebay sellers) and war or fantasy gamers' groups, and others.
There's also a relatively new DLP printer called Anycubic Photon that's reduced the price access point for very high quality UV-solidifying SLA-style finish to $500 and less.  Smallish envelope but because it does layers at one time instead of drawing paths, relatively fast.

I have a 3D printer which can produce good results as I have made a few now.
A lot is down to setting it up and configuring it to get the results required.
Many issues are down to trying to print to fast so patience pays off.

If you want I can print it for free! I live in Norway but I dont think shipping is much.

I'd also be happy to do these for you, no charge. I live in Louisiana. I have a Creality CR-10 printer that I feel gives good results, with layer thicknesses as low as .1 mm. I only have PLA for printing in blue, black, dark grey, silver grey and white.

Thanks guys for the replies. I was able to mount the keyboard using existing shield. But now I am wondering if doing this is causing a problem. I email the individual in the Netherlands about this, but haven't received a reply as of yet. Jason I might take you up on your offer. Dark Grey or Black would be OK. Yes this is the website. Live near Fresno, CA. Here's my email address, uffdaken@comcast.net. Just curious Neverstop, what part of Norway are you from. Been doing my family genealogy for 22 years. My mom's Grandmother was from Mosjeon. Also ancestors from Hol and Ringabu areas.
