    Has anyone else started doing this? I am having the time of my life, being stuck at home, and playing with my recently acquired 3D printer. I have just finished designing and printing a bunch of parts for my car, and anyone else who would be interested, by the way. I have designed a 64 Dart GT emblem for the hood trim and the trunk piece. I have designed and printed a center ring for the 64 tail light, that I will either be painting with chrome paint or sending out to get vacuum metalized. I have designed and printed an offset reducer coupling for modern defrost hose to go on 64 heater box. And I have designed and printed dozens of useful gadgets and hangers for the workshop and home. And as a result of making the trunk piece, I tweaked the design and I am making guitar picks for my kids and grandkids! I think that if anyone that has any sense of squareness and proportion, tried working with one, they would love it. Just sayin

        Would you tell us what software you are using and what printer you have?

        Sure, I am using the newest version of CURA Ultimaker 4.6 for the slicing. I am designing on Tinkercad online (free). And my printer is a Anycubic i3 Mega. Hey, you spell your name wrong. lol I spell mine Clay.

          Hey, Cley
          Do you have a 3D printer?

          The 3D printers keep getting cheaper too.
          It seems those are only limited by your imagination.
          I thought about getting an Ebag CNC Router (6040) to play around with and make some cool aluminum parts that would take forever and a day on my mill.

          You should, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Any tool that you can make things on is an amazing thing for the average guy, or girl!
