    Thank you for inspiring me to do something similar for my 990 SMT.
    This is a 2mm thick prototype to verify the hole locations. That's pretty close to the maximum size I can print on my printer.
    Now I have to decide how thick and how pretty to make it :-)

    As I said, I don't get to do the work, but it is done. She had the implant and all is well. Her recovery from the injury has been pretty much miraculous in level and rate. You'd never know she had the trauma.

    Here are the images of the actual CAT scans and the model done in CAD for the approval. The portion of bone removed shocked me. I didn't think it was that big.

    For a K100 project, I replaced the fuse block which protruded from a cut-out in the circuit box with a snap in plate with a pass through for the rear wiring harness. Modeled a Moto Guzzi G5 part that can't be obtained through ordinary channels of commerce, to replace the broken original part which came from PO without the other half. Yet to be printed.

    Created a mount for a 50 cal ammo box. After moving the rear turn signals rearward, I used the mounts welded to the grab bar as the lower attachment point. It is hard to see in the picture but there is a oval shaped piece that turns ones through the signal mount. The upper is the luggage rack.

    I found an old camp stove in the outbuilding when I bought my house and all it needed was a replacement knob for the gas valve. I designed it with an interference fit and slipped it on, and it works like a champ. It was designed using an educational version of Solidworks and printed using a Monoprice Select Mini that I purchased on Amazon.

    Started out as a new zipper pull, but turned into a key ring accessory.

    Hey, that's my part. Since it is for a Kyocera phone, that might have been a good place to look.

    Heh heh.

    The first time I printed it, it was in that orientation. It broke across the section that needs to flex to clip it in and out. I then printed it on its side and haven't had any further problems.

    thank you !

    I realized the other day, as I picked it up, that the stuff I read about as a kid was happening.

    my kids don't think it's a big deal.

    sheesh

    You mean, like having a wristwatch that can access the net, monitor your health, send you cues about phone calls, probably not far from a live skype feed for live caller video on your wristwatch,....ala Dick Tracy!

    Yeah, no big deal to the young, instant info, constant connection to the world crowd.

    My printer has been idle for a few weeks. I've been struggling to get my Cura settings fixed after switching versions when I moved from Windows to Mac after my Windows Bootcamp partition got corrupted. If anyone has a working Cura config for a Monoprice Select Mini that works well with the latest version, I would greatly appreciate it.
