Hi guys, just thought is show a quick 10 minute idea. I installed a quick release boss for my mini in the process my old steering center boss no longer fits, so i thought id print myself one.

 

 

Existing wheel

Spoiler

 

Bezel ive made.

In the slicer software, yes... it will take 3 hours to convert from a digital design to the physical bezel.

Just a quick design its better looking than the horn pickup connections...

 

I feel like im going to print it black with the MINI in white glow in the dark inset. 

 

 

Setup :

 

  • Software - CAD - FreeCAD 0.16
  • Software - Slicer - Cura V2.1.3
  • 3D Printer - Prusa i3 Hephestos v1
  • Plastic - bq Black 1.75mm PLA  , 3DP glow in dark  1.75mm PLA 

 

 

 

 

Ill look at printing it in the near future.
