      Anyone know if this would be feasible to print ?

      Basic dims are.

      76.2mm ID.
      78.2 OD.
      15mm high.
      step is 82mm OD / 2mm high.

        Yes you could print it but 1 mm wall thickness on most home level printers won't be super strong. Depends what it's for, material etc.

            Its a sleeve for a connector boot on a sports bar, cannot go into too much detail but our current attachment hardware for our FX4 sportsbar is being used on the new FX4+ sports bar and due to different connection point and angle the boot now has a gapping issue, the issue was known in December last year but the Ford Engineers thought it would magicaly go away but as it has not they now want to tool up and make a new boot but that will be a clusterfuck unless they ditch the FX4 sportsbar.

            I think the issue can be resolved with a simple sleeve and want to 3D print it to prove (or not) the idea, if it does I would then get the part injection molded.

              Yeah for a POC, a 3D part should be good enough - maybe a bit of hand finishing from a budget printer to get the dimensions down to 0.1mm. Looks like GSRman is printing you one right now...

                  Holy shit, thanks mate thats awesome.

                  If only ya was closer I'd get ya to print another, but seeing as it is possible I'll get purchasing onto it and get some printed locally.

                    After printing some things for my young bloke over the weekend of had a roll of red filament and had a quick look what to use it on, found a battery rack and some tool holders to suit my Milwaukee M12 gear, came out alright.


                    I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me...
