Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

3D Printed Parts was created by Etienne37

I have made a few 3D Printed parts for my 1976 Dt400c, although they are likely useful on other models.
These parts are printed on an FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) which is the most commonly available type of 3D printer type on the market. It uses rolls of Thermoplastic filaments for which there are may types.

These most recent parts I printed out of TPU Thermoplastic Polyurethane flexille filament which is highly chemicaly resistant to gasoline, oil and many others. It is also flexible and can mimic rubber compounds and is available in many different Durometers or hardness of material. 

Attached are images of a Grommet for the left side cover on the 1976 Dt400c. It has been convenient to be able to model up and print out functional "rubber" part replacements so I thought I would share it with the community I will also share the source files and model files so that those who wish to print some themselves can benefit from my time spent. 

Could not upload zip to forum for some reason so here is a google drive link for the source files

Can you make the grommets for the wires for the front turn signals?

The place where this kind of 3d printer has trouble with are overhangs. But I believe that it would be possible to print some if designed appropriately for 3d printing

Did you ever have any luck with the grommets for the turn signals? I haven't been
able to find even a generic grommet the right size. D

I wonder if the tail light and turn signal lens gaskets could be made from this flexible filament...

Short answer, Yes it will work for the light gaskets.
