    In early stages of toy business and looking into how to manufacture toy figures. Is anyone out here doing this using 3d printers? Thanks.

    Hi - thanks for the message. I'm wondering what kind of printer this place is using. I want to find out if it's feasible to do limited production runs of a toy (about the same size as the site you mentioned). How long does it take to make one unit, I wonder. Thanks
