I have students that do the 3D printing thing and looking for a way to fund their Challenge car and associated expenses.  This is not a school sanctioned effort, just a bunch of 18 year olds that have no idea what they are getting into.

They can print custom badges, mold parts, brackets, small enclosures, or any small widget you can draw within reason.  Limited design work is available.  All proceeds go to fund their challenge car.

ETA: I will personally ensure that your either get your print or your money back.  I won't promise you get a useable print, just one that is a reasonable quality print of what you asked for.  Be careful exactly what you ask for.

Using quality-management buzzwords, that is the difference between "verification" (does it meet the customer's specs, or "did we make the thing correctly?") vs. "validation" (does it meet the customer's needs, or "did we make the correct thing?")

What type of materials can they use? I would be interested in some karting chassis skid plates.

As I understand it, someone has to convert the files into a 3D model and that can be used to create a file that controls how the print will be produced.  I don't do it myself, so that's my limit.  Controlling the layers (thickness, orientations, the infill, etc.) plays a large factor in how strong a print is and in what directions.

Can you send things in and let the students reverse engineer the part to provide a useable product back?
