"I've had pretty good luck filling the gouges and priming the part.  Sorry I didn't get a pic of the flaws, I was too eager to try and fix them.  After this dries good I'll sand it a bit and one more coat of primer should…"

"So there was a little mix up with the 3D printer service.  They thought the units were inch, but it was cm.  So my cap wont be done until Monday/Tuesday, but I get a free one that is 2.54 times bigger than it is supposed to be. …"

"You could post the file on Shapeways.com and then share the link here. I think you get a kickback every time someone buys one of the objects they print. They do all kinds of material too, even metal."

"Well I'm glad there is a demand.  Some folks might just get lucky that a convergence of resources and skills aligned with a niche problem.  I'm pretty confident it will work.  I can compare my CAD to the actual scanned…"
