Yeah, I'm working on getting the stock wingstand gasket reproduced to exact specs. It will take some time since I have a 24 hour real job and this is secondary but it will happen.
That's great to hear, glad somebody has given this some consideration.
|Originally posted by IMSA GT:But to answer your question, I don't know of a 3D printer that can print in rubber yet and be an accurate gasket. By accurate I mean no print grooves or lines.|
I have not worked with a 3D printer myself, just throwing the question out there... as for a rubber material the Ninja-Flex is a flexible rubber-like
product (used to print drive belts, little tires ect..).
I agree that it seems 3D printing appears to leave ridges/grooves and a properly made mold for casting or injection would produce the best
Just wondered if this gasket could be made with a 3D printer with descent results.
