Default What Did You Print Today?

Thought it might be interesting to see what others are printing either past or present - maybe RC related, maybe not? Feel free to post your model design as well to share with others.

Here is a B6 front wing fresh off the printer. Designed in sketchup and printed on a ender 3 pro

Posted to thingiverse and added a link to my post. I did some initial testing with it a few days ago and it help up ok but cracked at the end of the night. I am going to add some supports to make it look closer to the Mike Gay front wing mount. I will repost that once that is done.

Great parts tray/tool organizer setup as well. I think I might have to come up with one myself that hangs off my tool box!

I can't post pics yet until I have more posts, but I created a 1/8 truck body for a T-Maxx based on the MJ Megalodon after seeing it on a Big Squid "wish list" article last year. Built in Blender and Meshmixer. Did a ton of measurements and tweaks ahead of time to get the dimensions right. The idea was to create a form for vacuum molding purposes. The printed out version would be used to create a silicone form to do the actual vacuum forming.

Biggest issue was size, and cost. Few hubs even wanted to print it, and those that did wanted a small fortune. Some even argued that it was unprintable(even though I had printed out a scaled down test version on my little Davinci Jr 2). Finally I just decided to use my tiny printer to print out sections of it and glue it all together. Literally took 2 weeks to do this! It worked ok...I had to do a lot of filling where joints where, etc to get it reasonably smooth enough.

Eventually I created the silicone form from this(and that's were the real expense was, holy crap), and managed to get a couple of pulls. Still working kinks out on my former, but it looks like this technique will work out pretty well. You can at least see the front of the truck body in my avatar
