3D-printed Toyota 'Motorsport' License Plate frame

Needed a plate frame for our SR5. Was tempted to run the TRD plastic plate that the dealer sells, but figured that wouldn't be right being that we don't have anything TRD on our 4runner.

So I drew this up and had ShapeWays 3D print it. If anyone likes the file/design, let me know. I'd be happy to send it your way.

Subtle but cool... I think anyway. lol.

Have a great weekend, everybody. Stay healthy and be good.

Thanks for the compliments, guys. Maybe we should look into adding color (yellow and orange) into the stripes? Or perhaps leaving as is in under-the-radar form?

Happy Weekend, all.

All black is nice, and Toyota in black with the 3 stripes in the old school colors would look cool as well!

Both are great (both for different tastes and from a design stand point).

Me personally, I'd rock the old school yellow/orange stripes 3D-printed Toyota 'Motorsport' License Plate frame

I always go frameless for the clean look but with this I might reconsider. Great job, clean and classy!

Thanks for all the compliments, folks.

Tomorrow I'm going to bring the plate to work and see if I can have some decals made for the stripes. I'll have Shapeways.com print out a few more plates so we can do a side-by-side.

The only downside is cost. Believe it or not, but each plate is $50 to print...Plus shipping. 3d printing from a 3rd party just isn't cost-effective. Bummer is that it's just millimeters too tall (Y-axis) to have printed by my own 3d-printer (which would make it only a $20 print). I will ask Shapeways if they do offer bulk-pricing.

I'll update the thread in a day or so with pictures with colored stripes and also the costs to do this. Hope everyone is having a good week. Talk soon.

There are other vendors that may be more affordable than Shapeways and may offer additional options. Check out Craftcloud by All3DP – Your one-stop 3D printing service partner and Local 3D Printing Service Near You

| makexyz.com
, or Online 3D Printing Service | FDM, SLA, MJF, SLS & DMLS | 3D Hubs

Looking locally I used to have a link to a site that put creators in touch with local 3dprinter/CNC router makers but I can't seem to find the link. Both the UPS Store (3D Printing Service Locations | The UPS Store) and Staples (via Sculpteo Online 3D printing service ) offer 3d printing at limited locations.

Another option would be to laser cut/engrave using a service like https://www.ponoko.com

Thanks Boort! That's great. Very helpful sources. I will definitely shop around to help make the plates cost as little as possible (without sacrificing quality of course).

Today I worked on the files for decals for the Yellow/Orange/Red Motorsport stripes. Hopefully will have this pinned down in the next couple of days.

Hope you guys are all well. I'll update soon.

Thanks again Boort!

Does it have the clips on the backside to attach and hold the license plate? Like it for the front to keep car washes from tugging and bending plate.

So I did stuff today. Drove to a Vinyl shop across town and bought a few yards and had them cut to fill in the stripes. I wanted matte vinyl but they didn't have it in stock. Perhaps something to order for the future? Let me know what you guys think of the Vinyl in-lays. Wondering if we leave the 'Toyota' alone? Would love it in gloss black but that would require a lot of installation time... lol.

Reypac24 - I just took a picture of the backside. I made the retaining tabs larger than most plates. It's a perfect snug fit with your plate in there. I'm happy with the way they turned out. BTW, very cute sharpshooter on you avatar ;)
