Hi, I'm Dan, I am a newbie when it comes to 3d printing and want to pick your brains on choosing the best material for recreating a part from a record player.
The part is small in size and it is made out of a hard, non flexible plastic. It has to be quite precise as it sits mounted on an axle.
The old part has become brittle over the years and does not stay in position as the screw in it doesn't hold any more due to the cracks in the plastic.
My gut feeling is to go with ABS as its rigid and strong but it seems that it is prone to shrinking, so I wonder what to do when it is printed and doesn't have the correct inner diameter to slide over the axle it should sit on.
ps; I do not posses a 3D printer myself, I'll have to outsource.
