    Default WANTED: 3D Printing



    Does anyone own a 3D printer? I found some files to make a handheld radio dash clip for my YJ. No idea what the materials cost is but I have cash and beer

    I have a printer. I can help.

    Also, there are print-to-order services online and local libraries often have a printer you can use for free. Here's what Broomfield offers, as an example. -- https://www.broomfield.org/DocumentC...rces-Document- / https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...9vh_XqX6s/edit

    Wow! Can't believe Broomfield library will do small jobs for free like that. The clip is two pieces, but not very big over all. I'll see what they say and if not I'll send you the files for a quote

    They only print in PLA. You probably want to print in PETG or ABS because PLA can soften at temperatures your Jeep might experience on a hot day. I have some PETG and can print it.

    Hmmm... Do you have a photo? I might be interested.

    So the idea is to take the hanger/clip from this holder (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1148280/files) and glue it to this radio holder thing (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1886871). He originally designed it as an insert to modify his iphone 6 holder (the other part of the first design) but he said you could just glue the hanger to the radio holder with no issue.

    Trent: I can email you the .stl files if you would like?"

    I can pull the files from thingiverse. I'll try to grab them tonight and make sure I understand what we're after.
