    Plastic parts

    Hi, does anyone on here know where I can get some parts made in plastic, they are door inserts from my old camper van they are getting very brittle, a few people have said the best way is 3D printing, where can I get that done, cheers, Mick .

    3d printing is time consuming and expensive BUT try a local college, many have 3d printers and may do it for you if you ask nicely or offer to donate to charity.

    What camper is it? Might be worth putting the word out to the owners club (if there is one) or on facebook to see if other people need them and you can get a batch done to keep cost down.

    that would be a straight forward 3d print... or you could use them to make a mould and cast them in resin....

    Mick

    Take a mould and make them in fiberglass It will be much cheaper, and if you have them 3d printed it will depend on what material they use, they could end up as brittle as what you already have.

    yep take a mould in fibreglass, easier cheaper and never ending supply, also easy to repair a GRP one aswell

    Maybe - No need for a mould ???
    If the rear of your parts are nice and smooth as the front then lay them face down and Gelcoat them and layup some resin and matting after prepairing the origianls with release agent. Only minor repair needed at the cracked parts
    The new panels would only be slightly larger but saves on a mould as the mew panels themselves could do.

    Or, if you're going that route, just lay up a single layer of fibreglass matt on the back, fill the gaps in the corners and you're good to go.
