Default 3D Printed STi Shifter Trim

I have wanted the sti shifter trim for a while but couldn't bring myself to spend $100 on it. So I decided to 3D print it. Got some images from the web, took a bunch of measurements, and whipped up a model in 3ds Max and just printed the bitch out. I think it came out great. Matches the wrinkle black dash console and ATI pod perfectly. Printed on a Rep 2x.

Designed to flush-fit 4mm socket cap screws.

Here are some pics of the trim and some of the rest of the interior.

Very nice.

Out of curiosity, do you own the 3D printer?

Looks good.

It's crazy that they're talking about building houses with a 3D printing crane for 10k each.

Very nice work man! Ive been looking for things to 3d print for my car. Just to practice solidworks a bit and utilize the 3d printers at my school. I like how your trim piece came out.

Out of curiosity, would you be willing to print another for a reasonable price?

Did you had to sand it or anything to get it that evenly smooth?

Default 3ds max?

Great job on the model using 3ds max. I would never attempt to create something so precise using max. How well has the part held up? Did you get any quotes from an online service like shapeways?
