Some 3D printed Moped stuff

I got bored and decided to design and print some cool moped related goodies.

1.) PUCH MAXI fork speedometer bracket eliminator thingy

Comes in both text and textless flavors (stock bolt hides part of the U and C, may fix, might not).

Installed Text Version:

Non text is the same, except without PUCH lettering. Here's the underside of both:

This covers the holes that would be filled by the stock speedometer bracket, in case that wasn't obvious.

2.) Magura Right Hand Switch Base:

This was reverse engineered from Ryan (DEADPED)'s right hand switch base that's currently available on Treatland. The files are original and created by me, but based off of his design (which in turn is based on Magura's). I'm giving this away for free, so if you have a printer save some money, or don't and support a fellow maker. Maybe I'll make the left side too. Anyways, print in PETG or ABS for best results. I'm currently printing a test piece, so I'd wait a couple days for all the issues to be worked out of my design before printing.

Once again, I'll add photos when it's done.

3.) Swanky UPJET stencil (plus more!)

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4012511

I'm out of attachments, so I'll put a picture in the replies. I made this stencil out of the UPJET logo, since NYC is epic, but I'm happy to design one for your branch, just send me a message.

P.S

I got bored and made these so don't be greedy <3 but if you're nice enough and I'm bored enough, let me know if any of you need some obscure plastic parts designed. Or heck, maybe you've got a super rare bit or bob that you want preserved, I can probably use it to throw together a 3D file. Much love,

Guthrie Mass.

As promised, heres the stencil:

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

Just finished printing. Doesn’t fit quite right, a couple little adjustments need to be made. Other than the fact it doesn’t really work, it looks great! I’ll fix it tomorrow if I have time.

Thanks for making this!

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

I need one of those!! Cant wait to see how it turns out.

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

No problem. I did a round of revisions and am currently printing, it’ll probably take at least 1 more go before it’s perfect, so hold off on printing unless you’re ready to do a lot of sanding.

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

Hi I printed the right side, painted and attached, seems like it holds great.

Could you do the left side?

Ill let you know how it holds up on the road, thanks for the up load!

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

Hey I need a one of those. How dense is it? Are you able to tighten it down good?

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

its tight

The switch base should be snug on the bars, but not over-tightened. That’s why they break so easily in the first place.

Nice work!

Put em on the wiki! https://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/3D_Printed_Parts

Update: I see someone already has. :) (edited)

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

Those look pretty good! The fit and repeat-ability is everything though, and that's what you get for $9 on treats. I highly recommend to anyone with a printer to try making some - it'll give you an appreciation for what goes into *JUST* 3d printing something! I iterated those a lot to get them right to get that satisfying "click" every time you pop a switch top on. I also have about 30,000 hours of printing under my beld on SLS, SLA, FDM and MJF. If treats starts machining them from aluminum, I'll upload my files, but not yet. I'm working on an edit to have these machined, just haven't had time to sit down and compile all the stuff I want to send and do engineering prints.

There's also something you've missed in the part geometry that you don't get with the switch when you get it from treats that helps the prints come out GR8. Try drafting some supports and printing them the other direction on the build tray. The auto supports aren't good enough and messy.

A good part of it is also having the printer adjusted correctly, nozzle flow calibrated, recognizing when layers haven't laminated, and gantry is tight. A lot of what I print doesn't pass QC and goes in the trash. Even if you have the STL's, there's a lot more to it for repeatability. Check out some of the stuff on 3dlabprint... impressive shit.

Glad to see some more of y'all designing and printing shit! One day maybe I'll do something more interesting than an intake spacer as a machined part lol.

Which begs the question... any of y'all good at surfacing? Looking for some people to help with some organic shapes in 3D scanned point clouds and meshes. I'm currently wrapping up a Magnum tank, which will NOT be 3D printed. Depending on how that goes, might be looking to have some help processing mesh and point cloud data for other scan data.

Top is cleaned and repaired scan data, bottom is the from scratch surface rebuild symmetric about the world space. That swept groove down the side was a bitch, and I've still got to play with the radiuses at the front.

Re: Some 3D printed Moped stuff

Here's those fanned supports. If you draw them 0.4mm and print them with a 0.4mm nozzle, they'll be 1 layer thick and easy to remove. Also, have the printer skip the last layer between the face and the fan - it'll help it break away. This is a great trick for printing overhung surfaces. The result of doing this, is no support material exposed when these are installed, so they look nice on the outside.
