Hello everyone,

Any idea where I could get 3D patterns to print electric switch cover?

Thanks

Which "electric switch cover"?

I'm guessing drivers seat but I could be way off...

I’ve got them as STL files if that’s of any use?

Can't take the credit for them as I didn't design them
If anyone else needs these printed off I'm happy to run off the odd one

I need the center lever/switch one for my drivers seat (think its the seat height one) - would you be able to print one off for me? If so, how much would you want?

I'll need to estimate the amount of filament required to run these off, but shouldn't be more than £10.00 delivered.

In order to remain within seller/trader guidelines, I will do these on a not for profit basis and will only charge for the filament used plus postage.

OK a quick guestimate. I can do these for £3.50 delivered or £5.00 for the pair in Black
I will need to order in some black filament tho

Yes it is, but if one of our paying traders is offering these then its a bit cheeky for me to offer these at a cost they can't compete with and not have a traders account

They're no longer a paying trader. Image

I won't wade in to the debate about trading grey areas though...

It is a fine line but "I don't think"* the offer crosses it.

I would put this on a par with offering to help another member fix their car. Sure there are supporting and non/supporting traders that offer repair services but you're not going into business in competition.

* personal opinion.

I popped into see my brother at the weekend and he printed off one of the buttons while I was there using the filament I bought a while ago. It changes colour with temperature. But at normal room temperature it's a very nice shade of pink 😃
