I can be like, hey Teejay, here's money for a shift knob. He goes, ok, then emails me the design. I then print it out. No shipping involved. Woahhh, it's the future guys!

Then if you get overloaded - you can email me the design - and I can print it on mine!

You can subcontract the subcontract!

This thing is worth every penny. So freakin useful! I haven't even scratched the surface with capability yet.

(Xpost from MT.net)

So I've been toying around and printing random things I find on ThingVerse.com.

image

image

image

Then I decided I want to try designing something on my own. So Made a simple square that has a 52.5mm hole making it the perfect size for a gauge.

image

Then I thought I'd take a crack at making a entire center console piece. Mostly going off the design of this !nJoy gauge plate I purchased a long time ago. Except I angled the gauge holes 10 degrees toward the driver.

image

image

I discovered that a 10 degree angle was not going to be enough to make much of a difference in how the gauge seats inside the bezel. So i figured I'd try something more like a 30 degree angle.

image

image

image

This angle should actually work. But meow I need to figure out how to create a sort of rounded bezel for the opposite side of the gauge hole so it sits flush.

image

image

I've been learning as I go. Not to bad I think for only really getting into this for 3 days meow. I've been trying out a few different cad software and learning the differences. Some are super simple, some are super in-depth, so it's going to be a while till I get a hold on really designing something intricate.

Kudos to Makerbot for their awesome product and software. I really haven't ran into any issues setting the machine up and starting printing. There's been some trial and error figuring out proper print settings and sometimes my prints aren't sticking to the build plate which can wreak havoc as the print head tries to still keep printing. But generally, this thing is pretty fucking awesome. Printing is really the easiest part, it's the designing etc that's getting to be a little overwhelming.

I'm going to work on the design of my center console piece a little more and try a few more prints and hopefully iron out some of the roughness in the design. Once I get something that's workable I'll post up the download for my design for anyone else to try if they want.
