Rob - did you ever print the Sky version of the model I sent you? Just curious if it turned out alright.

Got a few of the Sky plaques printed. Painted one for a friend. Turned out pretty well.

Hey, here's an idea... remember those roof-open/close rub protection pads that a certain person ran a production of?

I wonder if they would work OK if 3D printed in nylon? Might they be too rough or not strong enough?

If I can fine my spare set (doh!) I could (maybe) make a print file using OpenScad, if it's worth the trouble.

Well, it's not a 3D printer, but in typical I-do-it-the-hard-way fashion:

(Warning: I'd turn the sound down before playing this.)


(Pardon the mess. With four kids, I can either clean, or make stuff. Though the mess has, I think, reached critical mass.)

If I had specs for the entire cup holder assembly, not just the part that breaks - apparently, the previous owner just took the whole thing out and tossed it - I'd make one. The plan is to make foam plugs for the hard top I have in mind, using the rubber and misc. trim bits from my old convertible top. The whole thing won't fit in the ~4' square cutting area, but I can cut in sections and include tabs to get the individual parts aligned.

Or I might go buy 3D printer and try and keep up with @Robtheelder.

The Corvette logo worked out better, but it's in MDF and pretty much 2D. The raised sections on the Pontiac logo are a little more challenging.
