    S13 3D printing Thread

    As I'm going to be designing and printing a few things for the SX, I thought I'd start a thread about it and collate them...

    Rather pleased with this design to sort out the mess that is the AVCR install, and getting rid of the gap around the aftermarket radio... and a snazzy little logo in the corner... Should have this printed and in by the weekend.

    Anything I do design for the SX will go up for free on Thingiverse when I've tested it so anyone can download for free. If anyone wants me to print stuff for them, I'll do it for cost of materials, provided I have time (some prints take many hours).

    All my things are available for free with a non-commercial license. Contact me if you want one printed, or modified and printed. It should cost no more than 10 + postage - anyone charging significantly more is probably in violation of this license.

    someone was making a cup holder that replaced the ash-tray which I thought was a snazzy idea.

    On my list We've just had a yellow vest stuffed in the gap where our ash tray used to be since the S13 went to Spa some... many... years ago

    if your printer is good it would be worth making R32 heater vents, as you would sell a lot.

    Monkey is doing this for a living these days I believe, might be worth dropping him a line

    I'd love extended mounts to raise the standard spoiler about 40mm more of the deck lid, for a s14a though

    Thanks for comments. I'm not looking to make any money, this is definitely a hobby, I just want to share what I do design. My printer is a Prusa i3 Mk3S/MMU2S so it's pretty good, without being "pro", and I can print off several colours or materials in one print (hence the SXOC logo on that first post is going to be red/white and printed thin with an LED behind so it'll have a bit of glow.)

    I don't have a 14a so I'm not going to take this on whilst the queue of stuff I need for myself is so long, sorry.

    Testing the diffusing of LEDs to light the SXOC logo. Pretty much exactly what I was after!

    cupholdercubby.jpg

    Tricky WIP model here. Had considered a cupholder ashtray, but there's only room for 1 cup there so doesn't satisfy our needs.

    Had considered getting the JDM cup holder armrest, but wow, expensive (if you can find it), so I'm designing a lid replacement with holders... Test print all functionally works (lines up right, hinge is good) but was a little off for dimensions. Not far off, though... hopefully not many iterations needed as it's a long print...

    I would be very interested in one of these if you can do them.

    Thanks

    I'll be able to print a few off, sure (there are 4 parts, Hinge, Latch - although the OEM latch fits and can be reused -, Arm and Armrest itself so each print takes a long time). Functionally it all works now, it just doesn't line up quite right yet with the compound curves needing a bit of iteration.

    I can vouch for the quality of the design and items.

    Stoofer made me a switch for my Z34 that illuminates when turned on and it is real quality





    These are from Stoofer sad I have yet to fit it

    That looks incredibly tidy! Once I stop putting money into my defender and back into the Nissan I might have to get this! Keep up the good work!

    Thanks Pleased with it. Started off as a DIN surround just to get rid of the "gap" on aftermarket head units on the S13 and then decided to tidy up the car a bit, then ended up with a backlit logo

    Are they integrated USB ports or something else?

    Even if there was a top or bottom blank plate I would be keen as I only run a single din and nothing else in there
