I may be alone in this thinking, but a lot of the parts people are asking for (99-04 anyway) are already being mass produced from injection molded plastic. I can't see how individually 3d printing pieces is going to be cheaper.

That being said, I would love some replacement door handle cups for my 04 that don't cost $70 each lol.
And an insert that would make the rear cup holder functional.

3d printing is generally cheaper than injection molded products (emphasizing the generally).

Being 1 person instead of a company that has to sustain an employment base of over 20+ allows me to have a greater margin at lower prices (so it's cheaper for you guys).

Also me being one guy, allows a wide range of customizations. I've already talked to an upholstery/vinyl shop here and were ready to go for body color (or other) vinyls for the door panels (front and back) as an example.

I've also talked to a body paint shop who've given me the green-light for painting said products (not just door panels).

So...I see there is value here, hopefully it'll be validated soon after my trip tomorrow.

I know you guys have been waiting a while strictly on my say, so I totally understand concerns.

Hopefully I prove myself very soon and we can get some really great looking parts going

Alright!

I bought over $200 worth of parts at multiple wreckers and I'm not even done yet!

They're going to ship them to my place by Monday or Tuesday the latest so I'll post pictures when I do.

I got door panels, rear panels, radiator cover, those fake side-air-intake things, knobs, instrument cluster cover and the cover that goes on the radio/AC etc.

Lots to do!

Sweeeet! Are you planning on doing custom editing to the OEM parts, or just making replica OEM parts? For example, the fake side vents, you could split them in the middle, making two fake side vent things of half the size that attach just like the OEM ones.

I was visiting a friend that had one. Well his son had it but we played with it and tried to make a new shifter knob for my 2006 v6 automatic. We didn't do so well at it.

I have to agree that the molded model cars would be a great idea.
I would think every member on this site would buy one, like Venom said who wouldn't want a replica of there car.

More pictures are attached.

Can someone please let me know if the panels can come off the door panels as seen in the pictures attached? (I think the last two).

I'm talking about the part that came covered with vinyl for some models and just hard plastic with others.

Does that come off semi-easily?Click image for larger version

Final Posting

So just a last message to cover this whole day up.

Everything you see here, I can replicate, color however/wherever as long as its reasonable.

I've talked to lots of paint shops around here and we've got some things going on but it seems like it'll add to the cost quite a bit.

Would you guys rather receive the part unpainted (which would be black) or would you rather have the option?

Also, as usual, I'd love some ideas from you guys to see what you think we can do with these parts.

OH ALSO!

I've got door panels from 2 different cars and rear interior side panels from 2 different cars.

I'll pics in a bit.

The vinyl doesn't remove as far as I know. They end up looking like **** and bubbling up over time. So if you print the vinyl piece as plastic instead, I don't think too many would complain. Haha

Just sell unpainted AND painted options. I'll be buying unpainted since I need black anyway. I can just clear em and be done with it. Haha

Our research department has a number of 3D printers, one of which can print titanium. Now that would be cool for interior parts.
