3D Printed Parts Thread

Speaking of which.


SU carb air filter housings for relatively cheap filter inserts (from a tri-power triple carb '66 Pontiac). Designed for HS6 carburetors, I can also modify them for Zenith Stromberg and HIF6 carbs if there is interest. I was put off by the $60 filter change parts cost from VP and I like paper filters.

I printed a finished set with ASA and a prototype set with ABS, both work well and don't deform under the hood. Even though it gets pretty toasty down there.
 
I have finally remodeled the center caps I made up for using Aries wheels on a Volvo 240. You can't use the stock hubcaps when running Aries on a 240 so this is one option for people. Pop one of Dave Barton's stickers on there for some customization. The front and rear caps are slightly different. I have been running these over a year without any durability of stickability issues.

Here is the link to the .stl files

I will definitely use this in the future :). Thanks!
 
So I'm doing stuff.

Those 4 at the top don't fit. Finally got one that does fit, but I need to tweak it one more time for a better fit for both sockets. They are keyed slightly differently, but I'm making the plate where it fits both.

First fitted part!

Will fit the 1156 and 1157 sockets I bought from superbrightleds.com. It's where I got the lamps too and they are great!

Did these ever work out, an would you be willing to share the file? I'm battling constant annoying taillight issues and I like this solution.
 
Obligatory did not make these but I used these speaker adapters to put 5.25s in the front of my later 740 front doorcards with the weird speaker size and they worked like a charm. Printed using PLA and just bolted right up and the stock covers fit right over them.

Just found the time to type it all out and upload the files....

 
Someone make replacement gears for the inside of the radio/cassette players! They all dry and crumble (like the odometer gears).
 
I never noticed this was a thread. I made the front panel on the triple 52 mm gauges. And a tool for getting valve spring keepers out. They should both be on thingiverse.
Nice, I need one. FYI - Someone on ebay is selling these (triple gauge trim piece). I noticed your photo from Thingiverse on their listing. Sellers seems to be in Italy, supposedly.

Would anyone know a person who works in a field related to 3D printing near the BWI area?
Our Skills USA competition needs a judge for the additive manufacturing contest.
It's a great competition for high school students.
PM me if you know someone.
The contest is March 25, I don't know yet if it is at CAT North or Severna Park High School.

Small gears don't print very well on FDM printers. You need an SLA (resin) Printer to get that superfine detail, and most resins aren't that durable. Although the new Formlabs printers have resins that range in durability from more flexible to more brittle (but stiff). It would take some experimenting, but I'm sure you could get quality gears out of the newest SLA printers and resin.
