    So about a month ago I decided my 1/8 RC Ferrari needed an exhaust, so took the SBR4's quad exuast and sent it to my local library which has multiple printers. I ended up paying $0.75 USD for the whole thing and it turned out amazing. Here's some pics:

    Zortrax printers have insanely good quality. Not cheap however.

    Looks very good! I’m assuming the car is the Maistotech 488gtb? Thats the only big scale ferrari that comes to mind.

    Maybe you could print a whole SBR4 model piece by piece?

    I could, but it would take a while and probably cost $20 or more

    $20 would not be expensive, imo.

    Few years ago I did look 3d printing a bit and online service gave quote of over 400 for quite small RC part, your exhaust is bit smaller, but considering price difference I would say your library has really good pricing!
