Damn i wish Tucson was a bit closer to me. Id love a front fender for Champ LC50 that I wouldn’t have to keep gluing to hold together:(

clay...do you do a lot of carbon fiber work?

i'm thinking of switching to carbon to replace all my older fiberglass parts..

i'm still using my 1964 meyers manx, and i'm using parts of a vw roof design to give me a basic smooth shape that i can draw out & mold...

carbon fiber is soOoO0Ooo much lighter & stronger.

the out gassing of glass work only lets me work for a short time, vented etc.

Few people know Kevlar is 13% lighter than Carbon and is often woven together to form a much stronger part because it has the properties of both. Don't ask how I know. It's too long of a story

QT50 speedo gears would be at the top of my list.

So I finally built a printer for larger parts and engineering materials. Specifically ultem ( pictured) but I can print any material at any temperature in this printer. Ultem is a magnesium replacement, that is self extinguishing, and has max operating temp of 250C.

The build envelope is 21" x 21" x 24" and heated. I haven't been here recently so maybe it's best to call if you want something made. 5203495444

You have to send me a part, I can't make a part that I can't measure.

Funny you mention that, I was looking through my parts yesterday and saw that all my vespa battery box cover lids are cracked. I glued one back together and have been transferring it into CAD so I can try 3D printing one.

Re: 3d printed hard to find parts

I second the request for QT50 battery boxes. White plastic. I need 2.

Just checked and got this :

Won't be able to print them with conventional methods, you'd need to be able to print in Nylon or something

Re: 3d printed hard to find parts

Yea, what is the best way to print that, it's a pretty great lil part...

Re: 3d printed hard to find parts

I part that complex would be more suited to an SLA type printer. Those are the ones people make like their teeny tiny game figures with. The resolution on those things is wild.

Re: 3d printed hard to find parts

Dirty30 Dillon /

The intake riser is literally just a chunk of material with offset angles, you definitely don't need the resolution of an SLA Resin printer to get that.

You'd need to do some study of the temps reached at the intake, but even PETG would probably be able to handle this for years.
