a few weeks ago I went on fiverr.com to get a 2nd opinion on a hardware issue I had with a printer I was repairing.
I noticed that while there are many "i will print/ design for you" offers, the "i will fix your printer" or "i help you find the best slicer settings" offers were much rarer.
Just for fun I put up a gig myself titled "i will help you fix your 3d printer" and first nothing happened, but then with the last month I got 8 DMs from which I was able to convert 5 into jobs. 3 of them just concerned bedlevelling and the other ones took a bit of time in a video call but I was able to help most of them.
I priced the gigs at 10$ which doesn't make this a cash cow, but if these jobs come in steadily it could be a source to finance the hobby.
**Of course I would love to post my offerings to other freelancer platforms and there are many, but most of them (like upwork) are very focussed on software dev or marketing and design.
I wonder of some of you have tried something similar or can recommend other freelance platforms where one could post 3d printing help as a gig?**
