3D printed console items

Hi all.  I am currently attempting to build a full sized Pertwee console.  At some stage I am going to have to start thinking about the levers & switches & such (I still have a way to go before getting to that stage though!), and was wondering, is anyone 3D printing any of these items, or know of any resource where people have made the 3D models specifically for these?  Those black rectangular "slide switches" come to mind as something that would probably be fairly easy to have printed, if someone suitably skilled has created the appropriate 3D model for them.

Hey,  yeah I am doing 3D printed parts on my console,   One of our members (13DoctorWho) has kindly been creating the majority of what I need and they are all available on shapeways to print.  I still have a few that I will be going to him for as I move through this process.

I want notes, lists and answers by the time I finish this here Juicy-a-Box! WARNING: I am Thirst-ay! And it is Fruit Punch! And it is Delicious!"

Ah yes... Okay, so you are getting the items already printed, from that Shapeways site.  Alas, it will all be a bit too costly for me (particularly once adding the postage here to Australia).  Ideally, if only I could get (buy?) the files of the 3D printable models, I can then get a friend to print what I need.

That 13doctor is a splendid chap :)
