3D Printed Parts Thread

Would anybody have use for cad of the card in the back above the trunk? Mine is pretty messed up and I was thinking of making some cad for reference. The pictures in my previous post show that blue neoprene I used as a temporary fix.

Ohh. I actually have a scan request.

We all have the large clocks out of the dash. Can you scan that so we can model a housing for it to use as a standalone clock? A nice little Volvo table clock.

A little foot powder spray and I got this.

Yeah this stuff wipes off. But spraying on electronics or stuff that you don't want to get wet would be bad.
Do you know what resolution you scanned the clock in?
I’d expect a higher quality mesh from a $900 scanner.

Here are some of my scans from my Revopoint Range.

I had it set to medium. I don't think it really works the best with smaller stuff. I've seen other people using it for larger pieces and it seems to work better. It also loses positioning a lot.

It says online its minimum scan size is 50x50x50mm so it should be able to scan the profile of the clock easily. It has a working distance of 160-1400mm also so it’s more than capable.

There is a lot of setting to play around with though.
 
Just made cad for 3.5" speakers to be mounted in the front with the stock cover. I doubt anybody else wants to downsize like this but I had the speakers lying around and the old ones were starting to tear. WIP for now.


Edit: might end up using some speakers out an old boombox instead. Not quite sure yet if they'll be too big but turns out the 3.5" ones I had were broken.

It needs some clean up but I scanned a wagon handle cover. The software is rough to use and has a hard time aligning thin objects. You can make out what I scanned but it seems like it's far off from making something printable.

That came out nice. It captured a lot of detail.

I don't mean to be such a critic, I'm just trying to help out.
I'm a big nerd when it comes to 3D modeling and I spent hours figuring out the whole 3d scanning thing.

Scans are usually used for reference only. You can fill in the holes of your scan and print but the quality wont be the best.
Usually you import the scan in your preferred CAD program and align the part with your coordinate system. I try to align and sketch on the flattest surface on the part. Once that is done, all you do is trace the scanned part and extrude/ revolve your sketches.


This video helped me out a lot.

No I'm looking for the feedback. The only way I can get better.

You should look into getting a rotary table for scanning smaller parts. You can setup your scanner on a tripod to scan easier.

I’ve seen some that have a textured top that helps with feature based scanning. I also put markers on my table for extra help.

WIP 1986 240 DL emblem frame and diagonal line:


Also here's an update on the seat belt covers in the back, now painted. The color's a bit off, but it's good enough for me.Screenshot 2023-09-24 235500.png

I couldn't find a seal driver for the B230 crankshaft seal... and so I created a small tool.

This is for the B230 crankshaft seal and is intended to be utilized with the M16 bolt and the large conical-ish washer between the end of the bolt and the tool - the stack is pictured below. There is no inner lip which is intended to slide between the seal and the crank; I didn't have time to measure it all and make it that complex. That said, it works great. Just start the seal, start to screw in the tool, snug it down, and set the seal depth to what you require.

STL attached as a zip. Extract and push to your favorite slicer program.

How dimensionally accurate are scans like these? Is it worth it to take a couple "known" measurements to rescale the scan with or are they usually good enough?
 
Could somebody scan and make a STL/3MF for the part that always breaks in the lumbar support?
