index.php?t=getfile&id=72018&private=0That's interesting. I'm a designer in the automotive field specializing in interior trim. I have designed endless parts like these. I'm curious if you tried the junk yard or a dealer to find the part first. I'm asking for a few reasons. The size of the part you are looking for might make pursuing the 3D print option way more expensive than buying the part. If I were going to get a 3D print made to repair this vent, I would carefully cut out only the broken portion of the vent and having only that printed. That's the only way it would be cost effective I think. See image. This material is likely some kind of polypropylene and not that easy to cut. If you get Shapeways to print it you would have to send a 3D model of what you want printed.

See private message.

A few models arrived today via UPS! Two of my printed spheres:

Coral Globe

Neutrino Sphere

The Neutrino sculpture was inspired by the work of Korean artist Yongsun JANG.

Hi Everyone!

In honor of the first 3D Printer making it's way to space and our partnership with Future Engineers, here is a thread to discuss tools you're designing or want to design for space!
index.php?t=getfile&id=72024&private=0
As mentioned in the announcement, while the #MissionPrint contest is for K-12 students, we will be featuring space tools designed on Shapeways and tagged #MissionPrint now through January 30th when they announce the winner of their challenge.

What tools do you think astronauts need? Have you checked out the Made In Space printer?

Hi Savannah

Could you give us a link to more info about the 3D printer in space?

Thanks,

Hi ShelM,

Yes, of course :). Here's the post from Friday, and stay tuned for another in a few hours ;). I'll post when that's live here as well.

Cheers,
