Again, do-able, just going to need finishing to hide the seams and a lot of time to test fit and re-print prototypes because of the size. So I'm willing to work on one and make it happen, just be aware of the limitations. Probably run about 1/3 to 1/2 of a zoom console based on the rev9 prices for design, prototyping, finished product and shipping.

Leafy,
Agreed, mine has to be slowed down quite a bit to produce quality prints and I still get ghosting and other issues. It's a little surprising how beefy they need to be for consistency.

Might be best to make some sort of "set" where is radio + mid console and price for those together since most would want full set i suppose and see how many would be interested in that before you start using your time and money making prototypes. Im really interested in those anyway but i live in Finland so would need ship those. Lets see when youve done your ongoing plans and discuss more about that after

I'd like to see some brake duct inlets like you have in the first post. Those would be awesome if they would fit around the inlet in the front spoilers (like an r-package one).

How about a low profile dead pedal, the OEM is a bit intrusive to my foot space, but removing it doesn't work as my foot can't rest. Also, Air Bag switch Delete Cubby, like the OEM JDM part, but available.

Ok updates:
Got the custom parts finished and shipped out
Today is a big printer maintenance day, if I can finish early I'll get some cruise plugs printed up. They'll be $5 plus shipping (probably padded envelope, so cheaper) or $3 added to any other order.
Then I'll print the first of the extended version of the gas/trunk lever for mrmonk (tomorrow morning tentatively)
Finally back to the drawing board for more designs until more people want things printed (so come buy things.)

Leafy, shoot me a picture of that when you're done, that sounds like it's going to be an awesome machine.
Sember, I'll get working on a design at minimum
Science, Nope unfortunately, but I can design one and have it printed by the end of the week. Nobody really expressed interest, so it got put on the back burner. Do you have an idea of where you'd like one? My idea was a replacement for the ash tray.
Boost, bring me your car or have someone in the Seattle are bring me theirs, I'll make it happen.
Brain, Like this for the cubby? Are NA and NB dead pedals different? Still need an NB to prototype on, my RHD NA is honestly not the best prototype car

I'd love to!! How much would it cost to have a cupholder made that would be able to hang from the passenger side from center console? Kind of like this: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/13/87...575f5646ce.jpg

I was thinking maybe it can latch on the plastic where the end of the shift boot is?

Brainz, dead pedal is easy enough, I'll get started. Can you pull me some measurements and angles and **** for the cubby?
Science, $15 for the cupholder, $13.65 for shipping, medium flat rate box. That would probably work as long as the shifter wouldn't hit it or push the boot up so it falls out. What size do you want the cupholders themselves? soda can/energy drink, coffee mug, gatorade bottle, etc? I'll need some measurements:

Not to hijack potential sales but, the "Corvette" style cupholder moss sells is the best thing since lucky charms. Pricey at $40 but one of the top three "mods" I have done. It sits low, very sturdy, deep, large cups, no mounting needed. Removes, or moves in seconds. Doesn't interfere with driver or passenger at all. Oh and it is the best looking cup holder you can put in the car(especially an NB).

How about gauge pod housings that would sit flush against the gauge cluster cover? Either to the left or right side of the cover. Mainly because it might be nice to have the gauges there since I don't want to do A pillar gauges unless I have to 😅

I'd be interested in this made of abs or what ever won't melt in the heat like my current one did.

Thanks for the detailed diagram! I will try to get exact measurements for you as soon as possible. I was thinking maybe you can attach 2 cupholders? Also, I need clarification on the radius of the cupholder so I can get these exact for you. I see that the end points of the measurement lines intersect with the top and bottom of the cupholder circumference?

I would like them to fit those McDonalds sized drinks -- medium size. Probably the size of a water bottle would be okay?

Actually, 3D printing Corvette Travel Buddy cupholders is a brilliant idea! OP, if you develop such a beastie, I might be in for one.

Mad Scientist, take a look at the link i provided. Im trying to find someone to 3D print that for me. it looks to be about the same size as my current cup holder, which holds any size drink from starbucks for reference.

Mrmonk, 25% as of a few minutes ago, looking like a solid tomorrow ETA, check your DMs

Drex, can do, any particular style or inspiration you're looking for? Probably be a double sided tape type install I'm guessing.

Shamrock, $10 plus shipping, PETG is holding up inside my engine bay, but I can give ABS a shot if you'd prefer. Do you have an idea of what temps your interior is reaching? Interesting to see anything melting in Mass, even PLA. All credit to the designer: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2501911 Creative commons yada yada, not endorsed by the designer.

As a side note for everyone: If you have a file you'd like printed (as opposed to me designing it) I'll stand by my print quality, but not by someone else's designs. I'll do my best to fix any issues, but at the end of the day it's not my responsibility to do so. Be cool and I'll help you out, be uncool and get sent down the road.

Science, super fancy diagrams haha. My bad though, I just need the measurements to the side of the console, not all the way out tangent to where the cupholder would be. Yeah 2 is no problem. I'm sure I've got some cups around here somewhere I can reference and there's a mcdonalds down the road if not. Any interest in the corvette style solution?

Hues, it'll take me all of 20 minutes to design, let me know if you're in, I'll try to get a design finished today. maybe.

Six, What generation? https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2218934 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2074590 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2018194 (not mine, can't print commercially)

What ever is easiest for you, and what ever will hold up better. Within a week mine turned into an oval and became usless, i can only assume it is PLA. Its not uncommon to get 90+ here, and a black on black car is worst case when it comes to interior heat. With the design i sent ill also be able to easily pull it off and toss it in the glove box so its out of direct sunlight. If i remember ill take a picture of my current one and how bad its ovaled out.

I can send payment when ever you'd like. I figure shipping will be like 5-8 bucks.

Corvette style prototype:


Shamrock, uuuuuunfortunately shipping is my biggest sticking point right now, I'm using flat rate boxes, so you'd be looking at $13.65. Still trying to figure out how to drop that, The weight is marginal, the size is the problem. Fedex usually does a little better assuming I have a box that will work, but it's still like 11 or 12. I'll get these current prints finished by late tomorrow and see if I can manage an ABS print. PETG can handle up to about 180F, but a blacked out car and 90+ might actually come close to that inside with no airflow.

For shipping cheaper their is a way maybe. You have to order boxes from the post office. You might be able to order them online too. They are free. The boxes are called Regional Flat Rate. They have like A,B,C or something depending on what state you are shipping too. They are about the size of a medium flat rate box.

“Offered by the USPSŪ, Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes are a low-cost shipping alternative for customers who purchase and print shipping labels online. Regional Rate Boxes provide shippers with a low cost mail class for packages traveling short distances. Pricing for Regional Rate Boxes is zone-based.”
