Side Marker Lights - 3D Printed
I thought it was a good idea to split this off from "wanted to buy" as it will deal with getting this version off the ground and separated it from the group by from the molded lens source.
When it comes to 3D CAD I've always been a "right angle" kind of guy - more of the functional than the fashionable. The swept surfaces of bodylines are just not anything I've had a great deal of experience with, but I think I understand about half of what I know about that area of the software that I can make it happen. Kind of like trying to create a sculpture with a jackhammer - it's possible, but it ain't always pretty.
First thing I need to know is if anybody active on the forum has taken the lens off of the housing? If so, how did you do it? At first blush Mine appears to be solvent bonded (glued) or possibly ultrasonically welded. I ask because I can model the outside surface and estimate wall stock thickness and internal geometry, but I'd rather get exactly what is needed (or as close to it as I can get.) I have the driver's side lens and housing assembly off of my Solstice but I don't want to mess it up taking it apart because, well, the boss will be very pissed at me!
