    Here's the first one. Turned out pretty well, not without a slight flaw though. Where the coupling comes out of the main part, gravity made it a bit rough. I'm half way through printing the 2nd one, but if it will impact the use of what you need it for I'll get some support in there.

    Looks great, i'm not too worried about the flaw cosmetically, as long as that part is still strong and is not weakened, should be fine. :thumbup:

    Stoked! Thankyou so super much

    Just had to tap the shock mounts out slightly and then put the screws in under pressure and the voila!!

    I’ve put in a few images to show how butch these are compared to stock.

    Awesome,

    I've been in your shoes where you're eagerly awaiting stuff, i figured a couple more bucks for express and wooo :D


    Yeah looks a lot more beafy, as well as having the curves there to alleviate stress in corners :D I do wonder what material the stock one is/was hmm.

    with 9 of the buggers you should be set for quite some time :)

    maybe in 10 years from now you'll find a random glimmer of purple in the bottom of your parts container and it'll remind you of your days in isolation playing with your RC car :)

    P.S any chance of a video of it in action :D

    3D printing is one of the greatest things for enthusiasts that has come out in ages imo.

    I keep forgetting to look for options of 3D printing stuff to suit what needs i have as i'm still not quite used to it, but one of the fellas here did a gopro helmet mount and PS4 pro feet for me and they're perfect.

    I've been quietly looking for reasons or things to get that i can get someone to print for me. It's jsut so cool.

    One of the many reasons i love OCAU is for threads and communities like this.

    Hey folks. Have some 200mm x 200mm fence posts that I want to put caps on. Found this which would be nice.

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3919727

    Model will obviously need to be stretched to 200mm x 200mm internal sizing. Looking for these in black. I'll need 6 in total. Pm me if doable. Cheers

    Hi,

    Just got a modmic - and finding it not sticking on my AKG 712 - found these prints:

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2725334

    Anyone able to print a couple out - prefer orange or black - but tbh any colour is fine.

    I have no idea about 3d print - so whatever material you suggest is fine as well.

    I'm in Sydney if that makes any difference.

    Cheers,

    20cmx20cm fence post cap?
    yea i can i have two printers that can print these. HOWEVER it wont be cheap- that potentially fills the build plate of my second largest printer 300x300x300... meaning it will be time consuming and use a fair bit of plastic.

    IT could cost over $20 a cap, would u still like me to quote you on this?

    Lets quote it up. We can start with two and go from there! Needs to be in black, in a UV proof material if possible? Cheers

    3D printing is cool but there's better options to this. Printed plastic won't have a great longevity you'd be better getting these.

    Post code?
    What I assume is a automatic feeder funnel (3690988) the original version without the lettering would be a cleaner looking print without overhangs.

    Yup, that is a automatic feeder funnel. just trying to stop the food from falling all over my aquarium lids. Just saw this version and it looked like it would sit ontop of my existing eheim feeding station pretty well (and stop food from spilling out), with/without the overhangs doesn't really matter to me.

    There are a few more lads in Sydney that might take this on. I'm reluctant due to Auspost at the moment. Could be a long wait.

    Yeah, i opted for express post when i sent stuff interstate, arrived quickly, but standard post is a crawl at the moment.

    Suspect the smaller express packages are still getting on the limited air cargo. The rest are probably now by road and hitting the non airport sorting facilities.

    Not many know that under your feet on your flights it's not just your luggage but freight as well. Once we all run out of money and good to ship it'll be fine.

    i think fdm can do the job- but it would need to be somthign with great interlayer bond- and printing at a fine layerheight- so nylon, petg, etc maybe pla at 220c, def not an easy print]

    would you like me to try and print a couple to send ?

    How durable is resin as a mouse wheel given the Razers are known for snapping off the drive tip
    And what sort of price would resin be ?
