    Hi Guys

    I´m a big fan of DIY, and recently bought a 3D printer.
    Does anybody of you have parts to share? I was able to download the Cover for the lights as I am on leds now, and the originals where to short.
    There are many other pieces that can be done, like GPS support, handguards, brake/clutch lever, etc. etc.

    Thanks.

    Hi mate. I'm in 3D printing too.

    I haven't made parts specific to the F800 yet, but I'm in the process of developping 3D printed BMW badges for my Givi cases.
    I planned to post about those when they're ready.

    Which printer(s) do you guys have?

    I guess I'm behind the times as I didn't think any of the "consumer-affordable" 3D printers could produce "stressed" parts like clutch/brake levers?
    Blue 2009 F650GS - H-B crash bars, TT luggage rack, Pelican top case, BMW Vario Panniers & bash plate, 20mm handlebar risers, LED voltmeter, Sargent seat, MudSling, a few other trinkets ... I may be just about at the end of the farkle train

    Here is a close up from my latest trial (with clear coat).
    It's not perfect from this distance, but you generally don't look at them so close...

    I have a heavily modded Tevo Tarantula. The original printer costs only about $150.

    I wouldn't dare printing security related parts either...

    HI.

    Im using an Ender3 Pro, less than 200€ and very very good quality.. I havent worked on any part prone to stress, but i will as soon as I get carbon fiber filament. I dont know if its worth to print standard parts like brake/clutch levers when you can get them in aliexpress fro 5€, and made of steel/aluminium.

    I have published my thing yesterday on thinkgiverse, but it has been flagged only a few hours after by the moderation team.
    It seems BMW is touchy on IP and doesn't allow the use of any logo or product name. I don't know if I'll be able to share "my" design...

    I want to get a new heat shield for the exhaust manifold, you know the one that sits right by your ankle.
    I wonder if 3D printing would be cheaper than buying a $50 OEM one. Or if it would withstand the heat.

    What is the material used for the OEM ?
    Is it a big part ? The bigger the part, the more time to print, the more money needed (if you don't print it yourself)...

    They just use plastic for it. It's not very big, maybe 5 to 6 inches long. I also have no idea where I would get the template for it.

    I have recently bought new wheels for my ST and wanted to take the opportunity to retrofit a TPMS system to it.
    Therefore, I have bought a cheap used RDC module. But I haven't paid enough attention and the module came without its support tray.
    Instead of looking for one or even buying a new one at the cost of caviar, I have made my own for around $2...

    I recently had a demo of what it takes to create the design. Massive kudos to you!
    Concrete remains undefeated.

    Over on the Short People group we were discussing the turn signal cancellation button on early F800s. There are no fixes available in the US. So I went out to my shop and cobbled out a fix from a piece of aluminum. The fix works perfectly for me and particularly with gloves on. After looking at my finished product, I decided that this part is a perfect application for you 3-D printer guys. I would think that this part could be made and be made much more elegantly for next to nothing. (The Euopean version is $54 plus shipping, if you can get it) It attaches directly to the cancel button via a 8-32 stainless screw. I have attached some photos. Free to the enterprising sole who wants to make them.

    Nice work, but you are going to be in trouble for using an SAE screw on a Beemer.
