      The more I read about 3D printing, the more enthoused I get about its possibilities for reproduction parts.
      Does anyone know if and who is starting to use this for making Sunbeam and other old car parts (plastic and/or metal) ?
      Just wondering, Robert

      This technology would seem to have endless possibilities for us in the old/rare/obsolete car crowd, will be very interesting.
      I am still wondering about the costs? …and will anxiously await results!

      3D printing is fine for making things like positives for castings and some low-stress plastic parts which are actually usable.

      That’s where services like these come in for making parts out of metal. If you can draw it in CADD then they can build it. I’ve used the eMachineShop software and its actually very easy.
