Hi there,

I'm handy with 2D graphics, but 3D sculpting and printing is a total mystery to me; it looks like what's possible here is pretty exciting.

I got on to this whole thing last Christmas when I was looking for a place in Toronto that could laser-cut designs out of sheet metal to make a necklace for my girlfriend on a university student budget. And... no.

I've looked at other sites like Ponoko, and just today I discovered 123D, so I'm wondering if anyone has an idea if one service maybe suited better to someone like me given that I am:

1. Most likely to do one-off, small designs in 2D and 3D
2. In Canada
3. Cost-conscience
4. Happy to take a bunch of time learning any kind of software if it expands my options creatively or lowers the cost of printing.

Thanks for your time!
