    Vent rings are great - and the chime stopper is a wonderful small wizard (for off road situations). Thanks Tom!! [And excellent customer service as well!] Highly recommend.

    Morning crew. All remaining shipments are going out today. Thanks for your patience While I got them done. I am shutting the printers down for a bit for some maintenance and calibration. I thank all of you for your orders and it’s been a fun run.

    Hey guys, I just had a buddy print these for me from the file in the original post. I’d like to hit them with some SEM trim paint to match the other painting I’ve done on the interior. What’s the best method for painting these? They are a little rough textured. Here’s how they turned out from the printer. Thanks for any help!5139A5B0-2C93-40D2-8B00-B78E2FE9DAA2.jpg

    Yes ask. If they are printed in PLA they will not hold their shape so don’t bother painting you will waste a lot of time. Have them printed in petg or abs.

    Ahh ok. He printed them in PLA.

    I don’t know anything about 3D printing. Is PLA just too flimsy?

    It will shrink in the heat. I’ve been printing in petg and it has worked out great. I have also had success painting then with fusion paint.

    Ok thanks for the heads up! If I can get them printed on those, what’s the process for prep and paint on that material?

    Has anyone used a vent phone mount with these? I have the Hondo Garage vent mount that I’ve been using. I was doing some test fitting with these today and it doesn’t seem like my mount will now work because it tries hooking into the plastic, which isn’t strong enough to hold it.

    What PETG filament brand are you using? I have an ender 3 pro and have only done PLA. Want to start w/ PETG (screw ABS!!) for truck parts. Thanks!

    Had a buddy print the vent rings for me. The first set I sanded down I thought well enough and painted them with some blue Rustoleum. Really liked them over the chrome but thought there was room for improvement. Just got done with my second set, did some things differently and used a paint that essentially color match to my truck. Really happy with the result.

    I guess I can hahaha so I sanded down the majority of the ridges, I didn't want to sand them completely smooth since these aren't the thickest items. I then sprayed a few coats of fill primer, made the rings thick so I sanded most of that filler off until only the low spots had it remaining. Because I'm paranoid, I sprayed and sanded with fill primer again (probably not needed). I then did a light coat of primer (not filler) and then a few layers with duplicolor. I didn't like how the glossy clear looked on the last set so I used matte clear this time. Really happy with the result.

    I guess I missed it since I was viewing on my phone. Just sent the print job to the Mark Two and it should be done in an hour and fifteen.
