Anyone making grip panels?

I found this site a while back and bought some panels which work great for customizing
https://freshprints3d.com/shop/paintball/custom-grips

But for some reason they no longer offer blue, which I need. Making my son a spiderman themed .50 cal gun similar to how I made this https://imgur.com/a/0J9QzRx

Anyone else making flat .45 grip panels?

Ive got some blue ABS at the moment that seems to be printing well. If you have/find a model online of the particular grip panels you want, that would be quickest. I can take a look later and see what I find out there on the interwebs too.

I ended up printing these for Otnasir. It have me a chance to torture test my new printer with ABS. Man did I get a lot of warping at first! IMG_4034.JPG

But finally got it dialed in, and they came out pretty nice. On the final print, I ended up making the spider logo a little bigger, and rounding the corners a bit to help keep it from lifting off the bed mid-print print.

Will be shipping them today!

what printer are you using?
its all about the bed leveling and getting your first layer perfect, it is of course the most important. depending on you machine i can get you tuned up.
and depending on you software you are using for slicing.

the models from thingiverse you are getting a modifying, you are printing and shipping these to people for free correct?
i dont want to start helping and printing things for people if you already have this locked down.

edit i saw from another post your printer.
how many printers are you using?
