Seems many 3-D printers in the $500-$750 (US) range can do ABS
plastic now. Or not?

Thanks.

Aren't they slow? I've read of interesting shaped parts taking days to
print.

Not sure what you've heard. Something like the visor bracket would
take some time, but not ridiculous amounts like days. For the most
part construction time is related to the amount of material required.


I as far as I can tell it takes about an hour to print the visor bracket,
in contract to that I saw some factory with a single injection molding
machine is making 5000 similar brackets a day


Sounds about right -- but given the problems with distribution we're
tending to have right now, it doesn't really matter how fast a factory
halfway across the country can produce visors.

Sure, a (single) printer may only be able to make a few dozen of these
MacGuyver shields ... but if the option is "a few dozen / day" or
"none", it's not exactly a difficult decision.
