How much does it cost?

How much can you afford?

No, seriously. Name your price and I'll see whether or not I think it's feasible for me to do the project. Obviously I can't afford to work for $1/hour, and I don't want to hurry something and then try and sell you a piece of junk.

In general, the more detailed something is supposed to be, the more it will cost. Also, if something has to be 3d printed on Shapeways or Ponoko, that cost will be above-and-beyond the costs for my labor.

Most projects will also have a suggested price next to them for something equivalent. To take the mystery out of it, the formula I will be using is (number of hours it should take)*($10/hour).
