Well, finally got round to creating a coin hopper for a Bryans machine, measured an original mm by mm and produced the computer image to export the file to a 3D printer. The object is ok but it needs to print at a higher resolution for smoother finish, the hopper was not made as a replacement part, just thought I would have a go if a part is needed in the future.

Great for complex objects and an interesting project but I think I would rather find a good metal worker to make a replacement part.
