Is the number correct or has the project been removed?

Thanks!

I've always been interested in Innovated Dynamics's FR-S brake ducts and but since I own a BRZ, I've never purchased them. But with contemplation of swapping to a FR-S front bumper, I've thought about those ducts again. Unfortunately Innovated Dynamics has now shut down. Of course, there are other brake duct kits on the market such as the one made by APR, and others, but in terms of design, I liked the Innovated Dynamics version.


Another one that I like, but has never been brought to production, are the ML24 brake ducts.

What I'm thinking is that maybe we can 3D scan or laser scan an FR-S fog light bezel piece so that we can have the edge shape as a 3D model along with the snap on edges.

Then we can bring it into SolidWorks or an equivalent program and remodel the interior part so that it has a nice concaving duct, similar to the ML24 one.

Afterward, we 3D print a mold for the piece and then cast our trim piece using that mold, and sand it afterward.

I would then skin it in carbon fiber using resin, carbon fiber fabric, and clear coat, and wet sand it.

How difficult would the process of scanning, and then manipulating the model, and then either 3D-printing the piece or 3D-printing a mold for the piece be? I reckon we can do one and then mirror the object for the other side.

I had just joined thingiverse to upload this. It showed up for me with that link, but it also tells me I need to wait 24 hrs to publish as a new member.

I went back and published it. Let me know if it doesn't work now - sorry for the hassle.

I can see them.

Has anyone made an .stl file for exhaust covers before? I feel like someone would’ve made one in the past by now.

What do you mean by exhaust covers? Most of the people in here are ringing and designing for plastic based printers, which I’m doubting would hold up against anything exhaust related

Block off plates for those that go single exit exhaust.

Also made a little block to go under the tie down bar to spread out the load on the top of the battery. Seems to work well.

Printed in ABS. I'd previously done something very similar with a Braille 14115 and it held up well. The ETX15L was a lot cheaper than the Braille and works a little better in terms of height IMO.





Would you mind sharing the file?

For those of you that are way more of a 3D print expert than I am, can you use a 3D pen (which is basically just a hot glue gun sized for filament) to "weld" 3d printed pieces together?

It seems like it should work either on its own or as a "spot welder" to hold pieces together while glue dries but I was curious to see if anyone has experience doing it.

It won't hold very well. If you're serious about "spot welding" either use epoxy or my favourite, friction welding. Put some filament in a dremel and put it on high speed. The friction and resulting heat will melt the filament on both pieces and essentially weld the pieces together.

I would practice on dud prints before you attempt something precious.

I've seen the friction welding done, but it seems risky if its for relatively small pieces.
