3dhubs will find a printer in your area,all you have to do is make the cad file,in stl format.

Bob, those wingtips don't look all that hard to make from wood. Maybe it's time to expand your building skills.
I could give you some, er, tips.

If you spend some time with a software like SOLIDWORKS, you will be able to easily make the 3D model and save it as a .STL file

Solidworks may not be best. I would try Fusion 360.

I can do it. I work in FreeCAD and they're quite easy to do in 3D. But I agree with above statement - those tips are easy to do, way faster than 3D printing.
Buzz me if you need it.
Cheers,
Mark
