Depending on price, I am also interested in buying one of these. Preferably black if possible

got my new printer driver software loaded and the thingverse file translated. Unfortunately, it is not coming out as a recognizable part. More like a large collection of spider webs. Something was lost in the translation.

I ordered some black PETG. So if anyone wants me to print them one I will. Say $12 shipped? Figuring 10 for the part 2 for shipping.

Just a heads-up. It will cost you ~$3 to send via USPS first class in a padded envelope, plus the cost of the envelope (50c from Dollar tree). Plus Canada folks will cost a fair bit more to send to.

Since I have the black material coming in on Thursday, would you rather me wait till I got that in instead of printing in white?

Riven,

Let me know when you get your black material, and your final cost shipping to 48422, and I'm in for one, maybe 2. Thus far I've never even used my cup holder because I'm afraid to....

Thanks...

I got to thinking that before I start making and shipping these I should confirm.... My car is a 2006, are the cup holders of all years exactly the same?

The 2009 cup holders are an improved design. They are designed with a retention screw flang missing on the earlier design. Also, they have a modified folding mechanism with a travel stop mounded into the end of the retracting curved part

Operator error. I had selected the support option but neglected to select support EVERYWHERE which actually lays it down. Sigh. Its printing now. It looks much better.

As I mentioned I get the black material in on Wednesday. I will do a couple test prints to made sure the roll is good. Then, I will start cranking out some of these for you guys.

I'd be okay either way, but would prefer black.

Thank you for this MUCH needed part!

This is the whole reason that I wanted to fix my cup holder.

I needed a cell phone holder and that seemed like the least destructive place to put it.
