In the Type 3 mailing list someone asked about the heater vent flaps so I decided I would CAD them up and post them here. I will print out the parts tonight and see how accurate they are and I will sell them if they come up good. Any other parts that are NLA that could be 3D printed that there would be interested in? Here are some pictures and dimensions. First the metal flap, I just realized I forgot to put the curve on the one edge

if i could get my hands on a center plastic dash vent for 68-70 I could probably model it up in solidworks

Ya, those three dash vent plastic tubes would be really nice to have..
Almost always rotten and crusty by now.
I have some i could send you.


Except,
Like with that heater flap,
Best be sure it will survive the heat.. Wink

I’m going to the junkyard this week and there is a 70 Squareback I could get the vent tubes off of. The ones on my Square are also in good shape.

When I installed the piece after 3D printing, it fit and worked well, but I’m definitely wondering if after getting the heater up to temp if I will have a melted blob Laughing I will ad some pictures. Either way there is at least a good CAD file now for the part.

I printed with PLA plastic I think. I will double check though.

Here is the new parts. I drove the car today and I forgot to move the flap and check to make sure it didn’t melt. I will look at it tomorrow. Here is the new part

I took it for a drive on the highway with the heater on, it didn’t melt so I will get some more printed out!

Here is a model of a brake reservoir seal I did for my type-3 fastback. The seal is the same as for the beetle of the same year, but I didn't know it at the time.

There appear to be companies out there that will print your model in silicone rubber which would be just the thing for such a seal.

I used OpenSCAD

This is the actual seal:

You could make money selling new plastic squareback rear seatback grab handles!

Seat belt material works so much better for that Mike. It folds flat, and doesn't get brittle in the sun.

When making patch panels and metal parts like that, I do them in CAD (Cardboard Aided Design). Wink It works for a lot of smaller flat stuff. Cool

Seriously,
I was just up in the attic looking for other stuff and found those three plastic heater duct pieces that go up under the dash.
These being from the beginning until 71 or so..

If you’re into doing this,
I’ll send you the set of three.

They are going to be pretty tricky with hollow and curves and all.

These are getting precious, so be for real..

You game?

Yikes. Shocked

I imagine back in the day they made those in clay first in order to create molds.

I searched for 3d scanning and printing and came up with ...

Photogrammetry?

There are a lot of ads looking for them on facebook!
I'd never sell mine.

It would be interesting to see if you could scan the heater duct parts. For printing them I would think you would have to thicken up the wall of the part so it could print easier and not break.

For the Squareback seat handle, ISP west has them for sale, but they are NOS and would likely fall apart quick. But I don’t know if a hard plastic handle would work great.

I like to use a section from a 1" tie-down strap. Same idea as yours, just a little narrower.

How would you scan the inside surface? Maybe take the scan of the outside and scale it down slightly to represent the inside?
