Do we have a good 3D printer in the mud community for small custom jobs? I’d like to make a few custom knobs that look similar to the early LIGHT, ROOM, and WIPER switches. Particularly for a fog and heater switch. If there’s anybody out there that would be interested in taking this project on please PM me. I know there was a guy doing this on Facebook a while back but his project fizzled and he hasn’t responded to messages, but i thought it was a pretty cool idea. I can probably find a 3D printing place locally but this seems like a job for a mudder, if possible...

Thanks!

I thought @Krondor was doing this at one time.
I believe he's just molding knobs rather than 3D printing so he wouldn't be able to make something custom. Just re-create it.

I did ask him about this as a potential project not very long ago though and he's pretty busy.

Woah wait, you’re already making them??? That’s literally exactly what I’m looking for!

what’s on the back, is it a threaded insert or just a hole like the OEM ones (or is that customizable)?
I can go OEM threaded insert, or if you have an aftermarket switch, I can customize it.
This is a hobby at this point for me. Just doing it for fun.
I can recreate just about anything.. ;)

Is that a 3D printed Vader hood too? Super cool!
Yep...

They don't mount the same at all though.
Only for the look of OEM.

I designed them to mount with a 6mm hole. They use an LED bulb and you have to figure out your own wiring and switch.
I can get a switch that looks very close to factory though.

Hello. Can you make 2 pieces of the lamp heads? Problem is I dont have one in stock for the 3D print and not sure if anyone will lend us one so we can print a few from it. Would you have any in stock? Please let me know

Great Work, keep it up..

Thank you.
