3D Printing Collaborative Prototyping

If you could 3D print anything for your 4Runner what would it be?

We all have different wants and needs for our 4Runners to make our lives content. Do we not? Let's collaborate our ideas and design some things that would be useful and share throughout the community!


About me: I'm a Mechanical Engineer with experience in mechanical design and 3D modeling. I currently own a FDM (fused deposition modeling) 3D printer that has a 6 cubic inch modeling space.

Design requirements:
- must fit inside a 6 inch cube or be able to be assembled with multiple pieces
- operating temperature less than 150°C
- feasible obviously
- minimal load capacity

PLA specs:
http://reprap.org/wiki/PLA
ABS specs:
http://reprap.org/wiki/ABS


Best uses are brackets, mechanical housings, electronic housings, etc.

All ideas/questions are welcome.

1. A visor for my Garmin and Ultragauge.
2. A mounting bracket for a GPS to take place of the factory clock.
3. Auxiliary fuse block that attaches to a factory mounting point near the OE fuse block in the engine bay. (possible temp issue)
4. Removable flat plugs to put in the cargo area as I'm Bedlining the whole cargo area.
5. Rear aftermarket speaker housing for bigger speakers.

I'm sure I'll be able to think of more.

I cut a steel bracket for my aux fuse block (blue sea systems 12 circuit). I think the temp might be okay with PLA. That'd be a good project. Let me pull some measurements.

Front mud flaps for 2000 T4R LTD (with flares) so it doesn't look weird when the running boards come off!

Too bad it's only 6 cubic inches.

I need something modeled was thinking this would be the answer.

Yea that threw me off, I assume OP means 6x6x6? Not like 1.8x1.8x1.8 since that's insanely small...

Any chance you'll sell those? I kinda hacked mine together using the stock speaker mounts, a universal kit, a dremel, and a shakey hand... Kinda rattles with enough base.

I print them at work because we sell the 3d printers and repair them. I would not feel right taking someones free design and selling them printed from a work printer since I am the supervisor. NTM I dont want others on the forum asking me to sell them.

Your going to put a 3D printed PLA part under the hood? Your going to have a melted pile of goo within a few minutes of driving. Even ABS can't handle under hood temps. There are a few exotic plastics that can handle 400 degrees plus temps and be fine. You get over 150 degrees and PLA starts to get soft and warp. You put PLA in a black sealed car on a hot Arizona summer day and the interior can hit 180 degrees inside the vehicle. Goodbye PLA parts. PLA will start to shrink around 130 degrees(can shrink up to 5%), warp at around 150 degrees, and start to melt/severely deform right around 170-180 degrees. I know this from personal experience when I first started 3D printing a few years ago. I started making cup holders in PLA. I had to replace almost every one I sold with an ABS version. I only print in ABS now for interior car part applications. PLA is only good for prototyping and not functional use. PLA also breaks down and becomes very brittle very quickly when out in the open. It will definitely not last the test of time. ABS will go 20 plus years before it starts having structural issues. Develop your skills with ABS and you should be good. If you need some pointers shoot me a PM and I can help you out.
