    Just wanted to start a good repository of 3D printing ideas. Since we got one at work a few years ago, I've used it to make a whole ton of useful objects. I'm curious to see what other people think to make. Post your pictures and ideally, links to Thingiverse or otherwise.

    Today I finished up the design of my tape roll for my toolkit. I've never carried duct tape because of the very dumb reason of not having anything to wrap it around. And to me, the more useful tapes are 3M's VHB and 3M's Super 33 electrical tape. So I decided to put them all together in a handy kit. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2331366

    That is a brilliant idea. Gonna have to print one when I get our maker lab space built!

    Great thread, and I love the tape holder idea! I've printed several things, but only a few are moto/garage related...so far. None of these are up on Thingiverse yet, but can share if there's interest.

    First up is a set of new bulb housing caps. I upgraded to LED replacement inserts, and the new ones were longer/fatter than the old...making the OEM caps not fit. Cyclops offers new ones, but I accepted the challenge of making my own. They've been on for about a year now. :deal

    The next few are more garage related. In an effort to better organize my tool cart, I modeled and printed these holders for the oddball sockets in my cart.

    More tool cart bling. Not only did this free up some internal space, but it keeps any accidental discharges on the outside.

    It turned out that the additional magnet cavities weren't needed, but extras were added just in case. They're diamond shaped to prevent the need for printed supports, and the magnets are simply glued in place.

    I've also made a holder similar to the one above that will accept a box of rubber gloves, but I'm not finding a pic on my phone. If someone is interested, I'll snap new ones.

    Once during a fork rebuild, and not having the right size seal driver, I thought it'd be interesting to try a 3D printed piece. It worked, but turned into a one-time use tool. I'll have to find the pics of that one, too. :lol3

    One of our students didn't realize that the drill table had a lock, and somehow yanked on the adjustment lever until it broke. 3D printing to the rescue...:thumb

    Wanted to mount my Valentine 1 display on top of the gauges. Curvature in both directions, nothing to bolt to - 3D print to the rescue. Included sun shade and power plug cover. I'm happy.

    Just printed a fresh batch of BMW key rings last night. I try to keep a couple on me at all times for my fellow boxer riders (aka those of us who need to continually top off their oil but have a ridiculous oil filler cap).

    Not my design but does the job https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1113802

    There is a 5" GPS holder on thingiverse with a shade that I saw. Not sure what size your garmin is.

    Love the V1, had it on every bike since Gran Canyon. A little silly on the V7, but I'm used to having it.

    V1 is mounted on the rear case, to the side, in a weather tight case. Works dandy there, my usual is on top of a pannier but don't have that option.

    Milled this kickstand puck today using 3D Carbide's Nomad CNC machine. Yeah, I know it's not 3D printed, but it could be! Just wanted it in wood instead of PLA, ABS, or CPE.
