Out of curiosity, could you give us a very rough swag as to how much we might pay to print this via a commercial printer? I want to buy this for a friend for Christmas, but neither of us have a printer. I’m happy to go to a service, but as I am pitching it to our circle of friends as a group buy, it would really help me to have a ballpark figure for how much it might cost to print the thing.

I know you can’t give us exact figures, not asking for that, but an idea of the general amount would really help.

    This is really hard for me to say. Materials may cost around $100, so it is whatever they might charge on top of that. There are 250 parts, and I would estimate you might be looking at 2-3 times those costs. BUT I should warn you, that a Beowulf could likely not be printed before Christmas, the third party would need a printing farm of half a dozen machines to print out the ship over, say a couple of weeks. Release will be early December.
