ok just getting this set up though I still have to get shipping figured out, but I am making and selling plugs for the hole left in the intake tube after a home plate delete. Due to the limitations of my current printer I can only do solid one color parts for now(I do plan on getting a dual extruder printer eventually) how ever I can try to paint the plugs for an extra cost, but can't make any guarantee how the paint will hold up.

I also have keychains

I have been running one of the plugs on my RMW for a short while now and so far have had no issues

Nice parts, good job. Now we just need you to get a powder metal printer and oven an we can get hard metal parts besides! cheers

well if I wanted to spend about 400 dollars on a 3kg roll of it I could actually print parts that after proper post processing are 100 percent stainless steel, biggest problem is that during the final processing the part shrinks so you have to figure out the shrinkage when designing the part.

The best filament my printer can handle are Nylonx and NylonG

Nylonx is Nylon with Carbon Fiber added to it, while Nylong is nylon with fiberglass added to it, but both filaments are more expensive then the PETG I currently have, but they are both better in both thermal resistance and chemical resistance. the problem with them is that they are both abrasive, so even with a hardened nozzle they will wear out the nozzle much more quickly then non abrasive filaments.

Have you looked into making the rear grab handle lenses? Also, what about some of the clips for the chrome moldings that are no longer available? Great looking parts by the way!

That's interesting for sure. I had always heard/assumed that the powder metal, and any other that did solid metals, were dedicated machines.

Shrinkage is always an issue with powder, and castings also if you are doing printed mold patterns. You may be able to fine software that has a shrink allowance setting in it. Similar to the very, very, old school "shrink rules" that pattern makers used in the distant past for making their wood patterns. Just were a ruler with the measurement markings adjusted to include the shrink.

At my last job I used a nylon 6/6 material that was filled with Kevlar that was touted as super high strength, very wear resistant, and also low abrasive on other parts. I still have a couple of old prototype parts laying around here that I use to make some small parts once in a while. The trade name for the material is Hydlar Z in sheets and rods, but I think the material is at least injection moldable, so may also be printable.

Nice, I have a pickle jar lid in my intake. Fit perfectly.

the material I would get is a filament that while it is mostly stainless steel powder, it has a plastic binding it so that it can be used in a 3d printer, but after printing the part it's like ceramics, you make the part and you fire it, with this filament you print it then send it out to be debound and sintered, then the part you get back is all stainless steel.

I will be posting up some images of the intake plug with the chevy emblems I have, and the impala emblem, I can also do wording on the top of the plug but only for the chevy and impala emblems, once I can get around to printing one of each, works busy due to the holidays

the best way of me doing any of that would be if someone could get me a 3d model of the part that is either already in .STL format and then I can use my slicing program to see if I could make it on my current machine or if it would have to wait till I can afford a dual extrusion machine so I can use dissolvable support filaments
