3D Printer Projects

3D printing is a hobby of mine and it has come in very handy a few times in the last couple of months when it comes to mods in my Sunstar.

The four projects so far:
1. Added a dedicated sound bar to the tv over the dinette
2. Added a bluetooth sound bar on the ledge behind the jack knife sofa (uses existing cup holder holes)
3. Stabilise the jack knife sofa arm rest & add a cup holder
4. Digital clock bracket for cab

The cup holder is prototype #2. I used it on our last trip and it worked out fine. Really helped to prevent movement of the arm rest. I already have a better one in the works (it will include a tv remote storage).

Cheers,
Wayne

Where are the STL files located? Or do you not publish them?

Hi mdnntblu,
To date I have not posted the STL files. The license agreement on the software I use for the 3D models/STL file generation is quite strict.

Cheers,
Wayne

can I purchase two of the cup holders? Those look great and would help fix both my arm rests that broke off.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Hi Eric,
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. I'm still working on an improved version of these cup holders and wouldn't be happy selling the design I currently have.

Cheers,
Wayne

I used two printers for the prototypes so far (to speed things up). A FLSUN QQ-S-Pro and a QIDI X-Smart. My Creality Ender 3 would have been quite capable for the task, but it's been acting a little strange lately.

I've been using PLA+ filament so far and the parts have held up well (even through a South Carolina summer). When I finalise the design I will probably switch to ABS/ABS+. PETG would work, but it's too shiny for me.

Cheers,
Wayne
