A quick post about a 3D printing idea for modern fab shop. Ways to use this amazing and inexpensive technology in more traditional trades.
And a quick shot at one of these blogs, just for the hell of it.
Designing the Locating Jig Slicing the CAD Model for 3D printing. The start of a 14 hour long print. And done. But we can do better. So we redesign to make the part use less materiel. 4 Hours, much better. Kick off the print. And here we go. The tail pipe is located in relationship to the output and I can play connect the dots between the muffler and tail pipe. Under the sway-bar at full droop, and around the fuel tank. Like I said, connect the dots with tubing, But this is much easier than how we used to do it, and so much more accurate.
Thanks for reading, I might do more of these if the bug strikes. Thanks for reading and I hope you've come up with some kind of idea for your own 3D printing project.
