Fabrication of new Bezel using 3-d printer..
I am looking at the possibility of making a dash bezel for my (yet to be purchased) 10" screen to fit it into my console in my truck. The current console is square and has a couple pockets. I am going to remove this trim piece, scan it in to my computer. (I am told there is software available with a kinect to do this.)
I plan to make the necessary adjustments to the file created and then print out a model and see how it looks.
The 3-d printer is something I would have access to because of a local Maker group.
I am curious about the materials that it uses. They told me the plastic it "writes" with melts at about 500F and I wonder if that will be an issue. I have also been considering coating it in fiberglass but figure this might melt the stuff.
Does anyone have any experience with this stuff? I am told they can use Acrylic but that stuff gives off toxic fumes.
