So I'm busily designing up a set of 3d printed fridge slides to suit some unusual requirements in my 4 x 4. What I'm struggling to find is a suitable filament! The filament has to be UV resistant so I kind of narrowed the list down to ASA, PETG and Nylon. I have a preference for Nylon because of its low co-efficient of friction means I won't need any bearings in the slide (hooray!!). This isn't essential as I can print a rebate into the slides so I can insert nylon in as the contact surfaces. Now, because it is in a vehicle, it needs to be resistant to heat whilst supporting the load. The fibre (glass or carbon) versions of the filaments seem to have a much higher HDT but I'm struggling to find any useful design information on creep resistance. I'm leaning towards ASA at the moment as I can use interference joints between slide segments (max length I can print is 225 mm and the slide lengths are around 675 mm) and acetone to glue the segments together. However, I cannot for the life of me find any fibre reinforced ASA available in Aus. I'd like to keep the cost down to around $70/kg roll too which I think is gonna be a hard sell. Anyone got any ideas? Anyway, a quick and dirty analysis of the slides. I'll turn it into a proper analysis later on but you can see the loads are quite small (about 15% of the yield strength ASA). The slides are curved and not straight as shown either (part of the requirements to make the fridge fit.
