Any 3D printer wizards on here?
#1
Just wondering if any guru’s that are 3D printer buffs as I’ve got a couple small items that I’d love to have someone attempt to print.

1.) Those little covers that go over the weep holes on the windows.

2.) The covers that go over the nut that holds on the wipers.

Need to figure out a way to get those two items made out of anything but unobtainium!

I use my 3D printers all the time. I'd be happy to try it out for you.

Do you have a way to build the file to print or purely printing from a completed CAD file that someone else creates (or however that gets done)? I'm missing a few of those weep hole covers around the windows that I'd like to have made. May have a work around on my wiper arm caps as the company that made the arms may have replacements, we'll find out next week.

Creating an .STL file can be easy or quite challenging depending upon your skill set and facility with various types of drawing/CAD software. I'm not much of an artist, but can modify and setup a print job.

There are MANY easy to use 3d printing CAD-style freeware products out there. Do a search for them and try them out....

Got some good news from the folks at AM Equipment that supplied the wiper arms on 653. They are sending me out a replacement cap to cover the nut at no charge. Found a local company that does 3D print/design that will take one of those weep hole covers and create a CAD drawing of it for a printer. I'll let everyone one once we get it drawn up a couple prototypes tested.

Brad, keep me posted on the weep hole covers. I think I need 6 or 7. If you find someone to make them, I'd be interested in getting some as well.

If you guys manage to get a 3d file (any format) I can easily print up a bunch.
Be seeing you,
