3D Printing Development Thread


Recommended Posts

It was talked about. I do have a V3 scanned that I will be making a mount for once these are done. I was planning on doing a v2 and v3 style mount.

 

 

 

Have you tried looking on any of the 3d printing sites that host all kinds of models?

 

Got some pictures of the single pod with wires in it. The gauge I had was from my truck and has really long mounting studs on it so it doesn't fit all the way in. Other than that everything fits awesome and there is a lot of room for the wires in the tube. With that being said I think the single one is good to go :)

Here's a picture of one of the older revisions of the dual pod with the small wire tube going to the middle of the gauges with the same gauge. Still looks like there is quite a bit of room for wires. However, the guy that has the current dual one said that there wasn't enough room for wires to both of the gauges which doesn't make sense. Waiting for some pictures from him.

Just wondering whatever happened with this? Was there ever a file shared for this gauge pod?

We made a few and sold them. HMU if you’re interested in getting one though.

Unfortunately, this file was not released to the public and there are no plans to release it either.

sorry man.

It should be pretty easy to design a pod that bolts to the original vent in some manner, unfortunately I dont have any gauges nor any dimensions

AlexShu - I just PM'd you for a potential part development.

 

If anyone else can help, I have a not so pretty bracket that supports my FPR which is mounted to the intake manifold. It's basic bracket using two pieces of bent aluminum that's been drilled and riveted. I'd like to explore printing a piece that allows a bit of adjustment and ease of removal.

 

See photos for reference on location. I don't have a photo of the bracket itself but I can send takeoffs of dimensions needed if I get some help designing and printing the part.

The material around the vent is pretty slim. I wouldn’t trust the weight of a gauge+pod on the outer rim. You could do one but it wouldn’t look good at all IMO. On the one I’m working on I’m at max 2 due to weight. If you look at the ones made by LAM (Legace additive manufacturing) the base pod is in the center with two on the outer edge. He’s got sizeable attachments on either side to help hold in place and support it. His base is completely different though, which I’m not a fan of. That’s just me.

I’d you’re going to make a 3D model to print, why not just make an anodized aluminum bracket instead? I get that printing would be cheaper and I’m sure under hood temps on that side probably wouldn’t be enough to deform ABS (as long as there’s enough material in/on it so it’s not flimsy) but if it were me I’d rather have metal under the hood. My $0.02.

The intent is to develop a printed part before moving to an aluminum bracket. I figure the cost to print one is much less than to use aluminum plate stock (which I already have). I'm accounting for revisions too before finalizing and getting the part made with aluminum to survive inside the engine bay. So you're right, I agree with you. You're just a few steps ahead of me. :lol:
