Cabin Air

Okay cabin air a little posh, I’m on about the air intake for the hot/cold air into the land rover for the comfort of the passengers etc. This intake is the side of the wing, and it’s the same wing I dented a number of weeks back and also broke this plastic part.

I contemplated just ignoring it and living with it broken, but then I fixed the 3D printer. Then I modelled this, but minus the text as per the below pictures. I had a conversation with my dad and he suggested I didn’t need to duplicate what was there originally, so I hit on this:

I set it printed last night, but it didn’t come out well, so here goes again:

Air duct adaptor

Today I printed out an updated design of the air duct adaptor that I have for the drivers side of the land rover.

Printing… see the edges of raft lifting though.
The lift didn’t affect the large part, but ruined the smaller part.
Re-printed this bit..
The parts held together by me. I need to buy some abs solvent glue.

The completed part needs fitting to the dash of the land rover somehow in a manner that allows for the removal of the lower dash but yet allows for the air to blow were it needs to.

3D Printing

Having borrowed the 3D printer, I used it to print out a cup holder for a Fiat Spider 124:

This next video was taken at too low a frame rate, about 1 frame ever 15 seconds;

This was a successful build:

The finished product:

Needless to say the print didn’t come out perfectly scaled… so the bit that is meant to snap into the car was too small and didn’t work.
