I recently ordered some parts printed through Print-A-Thing. There were three parts that assembled into one component and all were to be printed in Blue ABS. Well, my three parts arrived. Two pieces look freshly printed and retained good detail. The third piece looked faded blue and looked like someone had pulled it out of their junk bin. In my opinion, the third piece was a bad print. I ordered it printed instead of doing it my self because I was having problems with my old extruder and I needed the new part to mount my new extruder. Each of the two smaller pieces could probably be printed in 30 minutes to an hour, while the final large piece would have taken a number of hours to print. It seems the person printing was hurried to get the parts in the mail so they just grabbed an old printed part. I am quite disappointed with the quality of this third part.
