    Hi,
    Thought I would share, this is another project I am playing around with. Printed in ABS plastic. At 98% I shifted from red to silver. I think it came out great. It took about 15 hours to print.

    Same printer settings 222 EAP and 105 bed temperature.

    Thanks for looking and happy driving.

    Looks great! Sliced with Cura? I recognize the scarring caused by the nozzle dragging over the print. Might try setting Combing to "No Skin" to eliminate that (2.3 and newer).

    Fantastic.

    If you make a bunch I would like to buy one : )

    Is it short enough that the arm rest would still slide over it?

    Thanks, not sure if I am going to get too into that part of this, but if you want one, I got the plans from thingverse and modified them slightly. you can request one to be printed from there, not sure how that works though.

    I know i can change the height to whatever I want. I'll reach out to you if it is something I end up getting into. Right now I am just printing to play with the settings and get a feel for what i can do.

    Have a great day, and thanks for looking.

    Nice job! Like the two color too. (I'll bet you waited patiently by the printer for 14 hours and 20 minutes to switch colors at just the right time. ;) )

    For this application, I wonder if you could go with 10% in-fill, save many hours of printing, and still have plenty of structural integrity?

    If you're into it, you could re-upload the modified thing to thingiverse as a remix. I did something similar for a charger handle mount I modified.

    Also, if someone wants to replicate the color change, ColorPrint makes it pretty easy. Then you don't have to worry about timing it just right.

    You made my day.. I knew it could be done, I just didn't look for it yet. I will add that.
    I will also upload my remixes as I have been playing with tinkercad to mix and match pieces and logos into various plastic parts.

    Excellent job! We just got our new MS and were talking about the no coin holder. Very talented!

    I use my Cubby Drawer for change, but this is really cool. I might worry about people breaking in to get the change. I think I will stick to my Cubby Drawer to hid it.
