Haha these are cool ideas. Looking forward to the time when instead of spending most of our day in wage-labor, doing something we don't like, for someone we don't know, to get money to buy things, we are just able to make the thing

What's funny is I actually need an S13 washer fluid cap and one is listed in the thingiverse link you posted

youre never going to find a 'pot of gold' because people realize they can make money instead of put something on thingiverse for free. i do realize there is some cool stuff on there; although, most of the stuff that takes time and effort, the creator is going to want money for it (rightfully so).

i understand this thread is a couple of years old. but most of today's consumer 3d printers print PLA (polylactic acid). while its great for rapid prototyping it does not hold up to the heat (long term) that interiors see. i dont remember off the top of my head, but i dont think its UV resistant either. another deal breaker.

i can also tell you it will die a swift death if you try to put it in your engine bay. learned that mistake pretty quickly.

ive drawn various things and put them in my buddies tuck (for science) to see how long the PLA will last. the shift knob we did has only been in his truck for a month and the shape is already starting to deform. we havent even hit peak summer yet, and i live in the foothills where it doesnt usually get over 95-98.

id really like to try ABS, but it produces toxic fumes when you print. PETG is another great material for the right application but from what i gather, it would be best to have a dedicated PETG printer (based on how you have to set it to print the material). there is also polycarbonate and nylon that may work.

ive only done this for a couple of months, so im somewhat new to it (but not CAD or designing stuff in general). sub'd.

edit:
not car related but here is an ear pro clip i rapid proto'd. thought i would share. if you guys made anything you should post it. im doing a bumper bracket right now.




sorry the pics are so big. flickr sucks hard and for whatever reason, makes it incredibly hard to get the .jpg extensions on a phone.

^Good info.

So you mean we can't have printed turbo manifolds?

honestly you don't have to buy the "right" 3D printer. all 3d printers have their quirks and bits to deal with. you just have to learn how to play them to adjust them to your liking and make work. i'm running a Creality s4 and modified it to print a foot higher than it originally intended for. but then again i have experience in the 3d printing biz for 12-13 years already before 3d printing was affordable to consumers.


if you're lazy get a Prusa everything have been done for you. but if you like to tinker things and have a budget below 700 bucks then its your choice. nothing is the best. even $1 million 3M SLS to 3D printers have their flaws.

oh, so you can print titanium parts on your creality? please share your secrets.

theres a reason creality printers are under a grand. there is also a reason printers that print titanium parts with insanely fine titanium powder are 100k+.

yes they all have their flaws. mr kanye simply asked about printing turbo manis. i provided him with a link to a printer that could do that. sure you can print a turbo manifold on a CR10. how long do you think it will last? 30 seconds? i know there are stainless ones out there too, but the Ti one was the first to come to mind, and i knew i could find a video in a pinch. so i went with that.

you can buy whatever 3d printer you want. although addressing your needs to find the 'right' 3d printer for you will result in much easier and successful printing down the line. we bought an ender 3 because we wanted to start small.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you get a group buy or something before putting anything into 'mass' production. Make it worth your time. Stick to things that will sell versus something some dingleberry on a forum says they would buy but have no intention on actually buying.

P.S. This thread is old as shit. Figured this would be advise for those thinking the same in current times.

I've seen a few people on Ebay who sell 3D printed parts for our cars. Im currently designing some interior panel clips as i don't have any in my car or have any to use as a reference. Unfortunately i don't have a whole lot of time to work on it these days so the process has been fairly slow. If you are looking for something specific you can DM me, ill give you my email and ill do my best to help you out.

If anyone wants to pay for tooling (3-8k for each part) we can get cheap legit parts made no problem, ha ha.

i drafted some toyota bumper brackets this weekend and we printed them for my room mates truck in PLA. we printed them with a fair amount of infill (so theyre not hollow). pretty damn strong for the material used. i dont think it will hold up, but my room mate thinks it will. maybe im not giving PLA enough credit?

that being said, i will try to post a pic of it later.

PLA will give you a nice surface finish and produce a good looking part but it is very brittle and weathers poorly. For automotive components, you're better off printing in ABS. Post up some pictures of it!

I designed and printed a bracket to hold my sunroof in place without the tracks. Hard mounts the glass roof on the coupe s13. Its done in ABS with a almost solid infill. Has held up pretty good. I'll try to grab some pictures of it soon.

I'd like to see someone make replacement ducting from the heater core to the blower motor, eliminating the AC box in the middle. I could definitely utilize that space.

I have a preliminary model for this, but I no longer have the parts available to try this out with. I'll try to source a car locally for R&D and I will let you know what I come up with!
