Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

When you print it you select the color you want. Everything on thingiverse is digital. You cannot purchase printed items.







I printed one of those a couple years back. Doesn't fit my ash tray, too small. It's pretty dang huge.

I have been wanting to model the sun visor hardware in blender and print out with a 3d printer but just haven't gotten around to it.

Yes, I need both drivers side and passenger. The piece that holds the visor to the roof at the swing part closest to the doors. I keep thinking I will get around to it.
I have never really had a passenger side one. It broke right after I got the truck and the drivers side is cracked and falls out all the time.
Would be cool to just be able to 3d print the pieces.

Polymax is the only PLA filament I'd trust for that. Otherwise ABS or PETG due to how warm it can get inside the truck in the summer.



PETG needs a similar setup as PLA to print. No environmental control like ABS requires.

I recently picked up a new customer who has a 3d scanner. I'm hoping to get friendly with that guy so I can replicate some of the plastic bits for these trucks more easily. It's nuts how long it takes to model up simple parts because of all the curves.

I printed that exact model in black. It fits nicely in my '94, though it is large and will obscure the cigarette lighter ports.

I do not have a 3d printer. So i know nothing about this stuff. How much would the material cost to print one of these?
