pls recommend cheap local 3d printing

I have two plastic pieces I'd like to print
one I already have, just want a different colour so it needs to be scanned.
the other I have the file

any recommendations for shops that offers this?
cheaper the better, material doesn't have to be super durable.

I use 3D Hubs quite often. You can source from a number of private printers in the area. It's actually convenient enough and most users seemed priced well enough that I've held off buying my own 3D printer, and instead use their service.

https://www.3dhubs.com/

It basically links you with some private individual who owns a printer and is willing to do jobs on the side. I've had stuff made by UBC students living in West Van, an engineer tinkering on the side and a guy who's slowly working towards making it his primary income.

I am a member of Makerspace Nanaimo and we have a number of 3D printers. If have the file I can print it for you. 20 cents a gram plus shipping. Max size we can do is 6x6x6 inches. Hit me with a PM.

I recently got David 3D scanner software which works with a webcam and projector to scan objects into a 3D file for the printer to read.
Im still preparing though.. my object needs to be spray painted matte white because reflections ruin accuracy. To keep my object clean, I purchased latex rubber fluid from Walmart which would peel off at the end and keep the inside sealed.

Dave, my experience with 3D Hubs since starting this thread has been great. It's easy to use and print jobs available were reasonably priced. The staff are also helpful if you have questions.

Appreciate the recommendation...cheers.
