Faced with the reality of having to make a complete set of extended wheel arches for our turbo charged, 4WD monster mini, a chance meeting with a mad Spaniard gave us pause for thought. What if we could get someone else to do it? That was the main motivation behind this experiment in creating a bespoke body kit from 3D printed plastic.

Yes - I was about to say... hopefully you making moulds out of them - having that done, it would not be too hard to make the part from composite, which would make lighter and much stronger part. Although 3d printed parts are fairly light and strong, the FFF 3D printed parts tends to split between layers, especially PLA. Sure ... Ivan probably knows what he is doing and with right settings, temperature etc. it is still possible to make reasonably robust parts. They will certainly survive rocks, but any more serious hit and I am sure they will be split in between the layers. Other thing to note - PLA absorbs water, so if you primer layer (sealant) is cracked or chipped the plastic will start soaking-up water, getting brittle and I assume the paint and primer will start bubbling around the damaged area.

wow some 1 who knows the correct way to install the brass inserts, the idiots in the 3d printing community just use a solding iron and melt them in

Definitely make molds of these for fiberglass before you do anything else with them. PLA is a great prototyping material but that's about it. As soon as heat is introduced those fenders will warp and conform to any surface they're on. I've had quite a few PLA prints ruined from sitting in a car on a warm summer day. I would love to see more of the 3D print to fiberglass mold process though!

I have a 3D printer and while it's a nifty thing, I don't think it would be the best approach here. The finish would need lot of sanding & filler. And aside from that most 3D printable plastics have issues that only magnify at scale, e.g. PLA is hard but super brittle (one pothole would snap it in half) while the likes of ABS, nylon are almost impossible to print without direct drive, super heated bed and hotbox. The proper & sane way to do this would have to be to finish the prototypes, create a mould from them and then make a cast out of fiberglass / carbon fibre and resin. Even accounting for the time to make the moulds it would probably be less time & effort than 3D printing them and either using them as-is or making another mould.

10:20 A quick FYI about the threaded inserts- for 3D printed plastics, you can use heat-set inserts rather than self-tapping inserts. You install them with a soldering iron and the ID does not have to be as precise. It might save you a couple steps on the next build. The heat-set inserts are also made of brass. And while you might say brass "doesn't rust" it most certainly does oxidize and my old, unsafe corroded brass scuba regulator would certainly disagree with that misleading assessment.

3D printing might have a purpose in printing motorcycle plastic covers for motorcycles where they are no longer being produced and the old stock is depleted for those that like to redo old bikes.

PLA parts for car fenders is known in auto communities as a bad idea. In long term it would be fragile, not to mention the way it explodes if u push it somewhere with that weight. That's why they make all plastic car parts like bumpers from ABS

You should have heated the inserts with a soldering iron and sunk them in, However this creates the problem of sinking them in straight. Still, it's a superior way to add threaded inserts to 3D printed objects.

PLA plastic will most probably tear at some point, especially under the elements. ABS would withstand much better. Furthermore, there will be some deformation during the two days of english summer heat for sure. Better to just gelcoat the prototypes and make molds for the real ones out of something very light and hard and fibrous.

I think is a good idea to add some sort of liner or insulation to keep them protected and not get annoyed by the rock sounds when it hits them.
LordOfNihil 20 päivää sitten
what you do to get good scans of things for 3d printing, is give them to some kids with a bucket of crayons and markers and stuff, and tell them to draw all over it. then the photogrammetry will work. also i wouldn't use pla, it usually seems tough at first, but leave it in the sun and it will liquify. its melting point is pretty low. get it wet and it will dissolve, its very biodegradable and rats would probably try to eat it.

That printer is fast... before they actually said 60 hours I was tempted to ask whether the print time had to be measured in months rather than days, having witnessed 36-hour prints that were much smaller than these.

I 3D print up to 400mm and it takes 1.5 days for a large print, that must have taken a few days each. At this point, they could 3D print a Binky and the 3 years it would take would still put it done ahead of schedule.
