4 X Toyota Prius G3 Wheel Center Cap -Power Symbol

4 X Toyota Prius G3 Wheel Center Cap -Power Symbol 3d printed Accessories Spare parts
If you have a Generation III Prius (2010-present) with 15 inch wheels, you can pop off the UGLY wheel covers to release the alloy beasts underneath. Except - you'll have a hole in the center of the wheel that begs for a decorative cap. These are based on precise measurements of Toyota part #42603-52110.

This has the iconic power symbol embossed in the top of the wheel cover, just like the power button in your Prius. More info: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_symbol

Also fits Yaris, Vios

Nylon is NOT UV stable. For maximum longevity and downright good looks, you will want to paint this object. Acrylic paints with a glossy topcoat are a proven method of painting objects printed using Selective Laser Sintering.

I very much appreciate your help. My order number is #378856. Thank you for raising this to Shapeways. Jeff

@redkid I have sent a request for some help to the Shapeways folks. I don't expect a response until Monday at the earliest. I have sold a number of these recently - what is your order number? I can't tell you if this is a glitch in printing of if there is now some issue with my source files. Thanks for your patience. Todd

@redkid Firstly, I apologize. The caps are designed, as you expect, to be one solid piece. I haven't made any changes to the source files since posting them, and I (and others) have ordered these without this issue. I'm sure that they can be glued together (superglue, prior to any paint), but if you prefer, I will pursue some satisfaction on your behalf through Shapeways - preferably proper caps in one piece. Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience. Todd

@schlem at least we're both in the same frame of mind. Yes - I ordered this product: 4 X Toyota Prius G3 Wheel Center Cap -Power Symbol, $66.16. I received 4 x wheel caps that have flat surface on the exterior facing side and a slightly raised border AND 4 x thin power symbol discs (8 total pieces.)

@redkid Now I am confused. Did you order a set of caps? Are they NOT in one piece? All the caps I have ever ordered came out manifold and in one piece.

I'm a little confused - I expected the caps to be in one piece - what is the best adhesive for this material to afix the power symbol disc to the wheel cap?

@bartv I'm pretty sure the PiP (as folks call it) has the same 15" wheels as most Prii. Double check your trim level - if you got the fancy version, you might have different / bigger wheels.

Ooh, I just got myself a new Prius Plug-in. Maybe I should get these :)

@schlem I love the future too! Where are you promoting this by the way. I'm intrigued.
February 8, 2013, 2:22 pm
@ChristianA Thanks! I am totally stoked about how it came out and how it fits. I am trying to promote this to Prius enthusiasts, and the dialogue has juuuuust started to spark some interest. I think everyone has been waiting for a finished product. I love the future! Todd
