Anyone know a good place to have a part made? I'm thinking 3D scanning fabrication or mold making. This is the part I need along with a mirror image duplication. It is a mirror mount found in the PowerSport Corvette mirrors made only for the '81-'82. This part is the passenger side. I need another passenger side and 2 driver sides

You could probably have that thing recreated by welding up a few steel pieces. Any pictures with it installed so we can see how critical the overall shape and thickness is? I assume those 3 protruding bosses are threaded on the inside.

I think a nice piece of alumunum angle, a band saw and a welder could have them done in no time. Lary

Well, the piece is metal. I think a durable resin or fiberglass type material would work (at least for awhile). The piece is mounted inside the mirror housing and holds the mirror motor and mirror. I doubt the plastic from some of these 3d printers would last very long. I was hoping someone knew of a place with 3D scanning and then create by machine process, versus making molds. I'm sure this will be an easy, routine thing in the future. Just hoping the future is here
