Hey every one I'm thinking about making a 3D printed Supersonic grill but I don't have any dimensions. Does anyone have any measurements/ dimensions and good pictures? I don't quite know if it's possible yet but figured I'd try and see how it turns out if I can get the specs.
Thanks

There was a guy casting his own out of plastic. He's gone now.. but there is another guy casting them out of metal for $750.

 

Unless you have a really expensive 3d printer, it's probably not worth the trouble. If you do have access to a really expensive 3d printer..... welcome!

So...who's "the guy" casting them out of metal for $750? Ratsun member?

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

Not a ratsun member. I think it was on instagram? Someone linked it here on ratsun though, that's how I found out.

I have access to a large "industrial" 3D printer at my university. I'd just need to pay for materials and studio time.

I saw that on instagram, looks good but kinda pricy I'm weighing my options, if it's worth the trouble trying to make my own or just spend the extra cash and get it already made. I do like that the one listed for $750 was metal not plastic.

Here's the other thread with the instagram link: http://community.rat.../?hl=supersonic

 

The guy making them also has a website, which I found on his instagram profile. Here's the direct link to the grills, allowing for preorders with supposed availability in October: http://love20bee.com...with-badge.html . He said he would update the instagram thread whenever the grills are actually available.
