Thanks for the offer!

A few things you should do when making such an offer
  - quote a price
    You may get many requests, so factor in
    - the cost of materials
    - your time and expertise
    - cost of electricity
    - wear and tear on the printer
  - set a limit on the number of prints you do for others (unless it's 
your business!)
  - make it clear what the result will be like
    - precision - is there a precision/speed trade-off?
    - can different materials be used?
      Maybe some materials are harder, quicker to print, different 
colours etc.
    - photos or videos of previous prints - even bring some along to the 
next tog!
    - physical limitations - can it do overhangs? Struts?

Just add any comments in-line and email it to the list.
