348 3d printed ash try

My ash tray bar snapped and I have been working on this for a while now. But things have finally paid off. I also installed a USB port socket and removed the lighter. After printing for 16 hrs then using plastic filler and a lot of sanding then painting, it is worthy to put in my car and looks perfect. I even printed a new door with the 348 logo and carbon fiber dipped it to match the rest of my car.

The first samples where made with ABS and had some issues in the sun. The new one I made with a higher grade ABS. I will see how it holds up once the warmer weather comes around.

I've heard about 3D printing, but never seen something made that way. That is amazing!

Best wishes, John

I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of these. First was the prototype in and was again kindly sent the update ABS material version. I could not be happier with the product. I will report back on the durability after a few trips out in the Australian Sun. Its people like you 2mmuch that we need in the Ferrari community that spend time on developing products to keep these cars going and in as best shape as possible.

Once again, Thankyou

Thanks.

Please let me know how it holds up. I have a new design that will go between the seats and hold to cups, phone and other things.

Also in the middle of making the end caps of the rear grille of the 348ss for a guy in town. A little pricey, but the final product will be cnc cut in aluminium. I just completed the scan and will be printing a 3d sample this weekend to test if all is good, then I will put it on my cnc machine and cut it.

Curious on where you get the CAD files for these? Does Ferrari provide them or?

I have a high end laser scanner for reverse engine parts here where I work, and duplicate almost anything if needed. A lot of parts on older cars don't have any cad data so people send them to me and I reverse engineer them. It is vary expensive if sent out to get it done, but I have everything in house and at my disposal to use.

thanks

This looks amazing. My entire centre console has the usual sticky black problem but as I only just bought it I have not yet considered what I will do to fix it. Let me know how the new parts hold out in the sun. It was +38 in Italy with the roof off the whole console was just a sticky pain in butt !.

I have a question. I see alot of ash trays have an issue along the skinny piece braking. If I where to try to reproduce one in Aluminum would this be something people would like to see. I currently have a cup holder replacement for the ash tray and is currently being redesigned so I can hold it on a cnc machine to machine it out of piece of aluminum. I will start a different tread for the cup holder once it is complete.

Thx.
