| Duplicate Keys Needed [message #56360] Mon, 05 November 2012 23:17 UTC
I'm unfamiliar with the 3D printing community, but I'm hoping this could be a solution for my problem.|
I recently moved into a condo that has predominantly Chinese-made fixtures. As a result, the local locksmiths and key-cutting shops are unable to create duplicates of my house keys, both indoor and outdoor locks. They told me that there are so many sizes and shapes for Chinese-made keys that they don't find it practical to carry the blanks. They also don't have the machines to make the grooves and dimples on the keys.
Please let me know if there's any way 3D printing could somehow be utilized to address this issue.
P.S., the landlord has the other set, and is unwilling to provide duplicates.
