Large format printing a customer’s own dashboard design

We recently showcased the new addition to our 3D printing service line up, a Raise3D large format machine capable of printing up to 305x305x610mm parts, and it wasn’t long before the first order arrived to test it!

A customer contacted us with their own design for a race car dashboard which needed to be printed in as few pieces as possible using ABS plastic.  We worked on the design a little to cut down on cost but also improve the printability of the design and the end result is both a great looking print and a very happy customer!  The pieces included a three dial binnacle and main section for larger speedo and rev counter with a smaller piece for warning lights to the right of the clocks.  The pictures show the dashboard trialled in place shortly after receiving them.
