Hi everyone!

Anyone know who's making reproductions of O2 / G7000 cartridge shells?

Cheers!

Thanks!

While 3D printing is one way, costs have come down considerably if you outsource to China. Does anyone know if anyone created cad files for the carts?

If anyone attempted this, the cost would most likely be thousands just for the mold. I don't see this happening, unless someone wins the Lottery or such. JHMO.

It depends..

Moulds can be done cheaply in China (<$1000) and the volume determines the end price. For homebrew cartridges, it'd be worth pooling money together and creating custom ones IMO.

No offense, but I'd like to see the proof on this. I've talked with a good amount of folk in the home brew business, and molds are damn expensive. If it can be done more cost effectively, I'm all for it, and would partly sponsor it too!

They *are* expensive if you get them done in the US. Mainland China is cheaper. I got my information from Piko Interactive, who's done runs before...

But yeah, it's only really do-able if you either have money to burn or pool money together.
