wiring cover 3d print

I took the cover GreatBlackNorth designed and posted and created .stl files for the two main covers. Does anyone have a 3D printer that they can test these with? Mine is busted

My buddy at work printed the left side big cover last night. Gotta get the air box off and see if this thing fits ok and what other mods I need to make to the 3D models. I have a feeling this is going to be an iterative process

What is the density of this print and will the material withstand extreme temperatures for prolonged periods? I made mention in my VIBA thread that its poor construction is more than likely the cause of distress. Is it possible for the design for a detachable OBD slot/cover?

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

If you are printing your own then the longevity is a moot point at the end of the day.

Another question especially for those with the airbox removed cover fitted - Is 'plastic' the preferred material or just plastic as it's the easiest to have printed? Having a side job loaded into an SLS print job is much cheaper than it used to be and a nice choice of different metals these days?

0-60 in .......oh! wait.... I really don't care anymore (but it's still 1200cc of raw throbbing Trumpet so bugger off Mr.Scooter!)

How do you solve bends? Print is flat.

I neither own a 3D printer nor find a product that deteriorates after a short period to be worth investing in, regardless if you own a 3D printer or not. I'm just assuming almost all 3D products are for hobbyists and not seriously meant for consumer production outside of transferring to a CNC.

Kind of, hobby and professional are a whole different ball game.

Most countries Aviation authorities and motoring departments have passed many parts to be 3D printed most usually engine components.

Generally the PLA 3D printers you have at home are just a hobby machine, once however you start looking at the high end 3D printers, you are looking at using materials like titanium to build parts down to thousandth's of an inch tolerances. The difference between entry level and high end printers are a large box on your table in the kitchen and a small building with a power station attached.
