Someone to do some 3-D printing for me
« on: 28 April, 2021, 01:09:14 pm »
I'm trying to sort out some alloy wheel centre caps for my "winter" car wheels.  I've bought some wheels with centres, but they're from a different car to mine, and the centre caps are a different size and diferent logo.  I can get the logo off the "wrong" caps, and fill/smooth/paint them, but I'd like to add the correct logo.  This logo, I have discovered, can be 3D printed - so is there anyone with a 3D printer who can produce a (reasonably) smooth logo for me?

It's the "Cupra" logo on this page:

They'd (for I would like 4) be sized to fit in a 50mm circle.

TIA

I'll try printing one to see how it goes but I can't promise to produce an acceptable finished item.  Watch this space!

Edit:  looks like it needs scaling to 44% to fit into a 50mm diamter circle.

Thanks Russel!  :thumbsup:   I can always sand it down to give a smoother finish.

And many, many thanks to Russell for his generosity in printing the required logos for me.  Brilliant!
