I just recently purchased a 3D printer and was curious if anyone has started printing any Fiero parts? Although they are available to purchase I plan to scan the clips that hold the molding on the body panels and print my own. Of course I have to build the scanner first!

What else are you looking for? I don't mind doing what limited modeling I can.

Not to hijack the thread.... but it IS about 3D printing I would love to see the 3D designs on the site linked above, if you have printed any of them. Just see how well it does with the details and such.

I've printed a few parts now. Depending on the application, thickness, direction of loading, flexibility required, type of printer you have, material... you can find good uses for your 3D printed parts. However, they do have a lot of limitations as well. Your best bet is to experiment and see what works and what doesn't.

^^^^that's who I got the idea to do the center caps from. The remix of his 60mm center caps I did may not print well because I did not pay attention to the width of the lines in the emblem. The width of the lines need to be in a multiple of the extruder nozzle, especially on the top later or you end up with gaps

Personally I think printing the plastic clips that hold the body panels on would be a general waste of time as the plastic will be too brittle to be of any use. It has to be somewhat flexible.

It depends on how well the printer is calibrated, settings, orientation and the material used.

When my gas pedal broke I designed a new one from some pictures on the internet and printed it.
It fit and worked, but I only used it for half a day before replacing it with the one of my parts car.

Do you still have the file and would you be willing to share it?

I'm going to make a few changes to the model, and I'll put it up on thingiverse in the next few days.

I also have an idea for 3d printed cup-holders that I may try and sell in the future.

Well this is quite odd. I've checked this thread several times on my phone and never saw any of the replies except the first. Little did I know about the rest!

Anyway, I decided I wanted to print a shift knob. And I happen to have glow in the dark filament. JMBishop, I hope you don't mind that I stole the Fiero logo from your center cap and integrated it onto a shift knob I found on Thingiverse!







My next idea is to try printing replacement horn paddles since one of mine is broken. It might be tricky to design though. Still looking at building a 3d scanner, just can't decide which route to take!

Finally printed all the parts I need for the scanner. Hope to be scanning some Fiero parts soon.
