3D Printed Interior Trim

Fri 30 Dec, 2016 10:50 am

So one of my hobbies is 3D printing, and I have a GTO full of broken and disintegrating interior trim. Seemed like a perfect holiday project!

Here's my first attempt at making something for the car, so far I think it has worked spectacularly! I definitely need to get some charcoal coloured filament if I do any more, but this will do for starters. It will be interesting to see how it holds up in the sun, a Hawkes Bay summer ought to be a pretty good test I think 8-)

It's a home built delta style. Much larger than your average desktop printer (350mm diameter print area), though there are a few compromises that come with the large size. I am currently designing an even biggerer betterer one which I'll be building this year.

I run a small business on-the-side doing 3D Printing and CAD work, so I'd be more that happy to do a run of rear shade brackets if a couple of people want them. And I can look into doing other interior parts too.

In the near future for my car I'll be making a 7" tablet mount to replace the OEM double din head unit, and a phone holder to replace the centre console ash tray.

I reckon you could make 20 pairs of those rear blind holders and they would all be out the door in no time.

Another big one is dash vents, but they might be too big.

Yup they are on my list too. I may have to make them in sections but it should be doable. The problem with the dash vents may be price, large items take significantly longer to print so tie up the machine for longer. That means I have to charge a lot more for them or its just not viable. Ill get round to taking mine out eventually and see what I can do.

Ok Ive tweaked the shape a little bit and made a couple more pairs of rear blind holders in Charcoal ABS. The colour isn't a perfect match to the factory interior (depending on your level of fade) but they should be pretty easy to paint if you really want to.

$35 for a pair, flick me a PM if you are interested :)

I'd say they will probably match the black interior on the gen2 and later cars perfectly.

I'm keen for a set, but maybe in a month or so when I get back home.

Lol, didn't even know there was a facebook group :lol:

All of the first batch of blind holders are now gone. I'll wait for some feedback from my beta testers before I advertise them anywhere else, but thanks for the heads up!

Ah yup, I see where you mean. Mine were so crumbly I had to guess a few bits and the rest of my interior trim is so loose it didn't really matter on my car. Are you happy to sand yours to fit or would you like me to send you a new set?

As for the colour I'm limited to what 3D printer filament I can get so exact colour matching isn't really an option. At the moment there is 'charcoal' which is what you have and 'black' which is, well, blacker.

I currently have 2 more sets available the same shape as this which will need the light sanding as Scruffy has noted. Ill knock $5 off if anyone wants to take themĀ :)
