Excited to get mine in!
Look how flexible these are! I balled it up in my fist then just dropped it and it snapped right back into shape.Please post pics when installed.
This technology is awesome, just the right size for whiskers:... I can definitely see how moulding and fabricating can benefit the CS.com community, particularly with discontinued parts. Until 3D printing comes of age, old school methods still work with new-age materials. Maybe I was being a little overambitious, but my original thought was to have MkII whiskers done up in carbon fiber. Real carbon fiber and fiberglass have their performance perks and a certain cosmetic appeal, but unless fitment is dead-on, their relative hardness can be problematic.
I'd need at least 10 committed buyers before I consider pouring another set of moulds. I've spent enough already. Unfortunately it looks like this will be another project shelvedUPS or FedEx stores are going to have 3d printers available in the near future. Man, those look great! I'm in for the next set of poly whiskers.
Sorry, all gone...months of R&D, trial & error and hundreds of dollars spent - the last batch went out in a Fire Sale. :new_ukliaAre there anymore whiskers? Looks like I'm a day late and a dollar short from the other threads I've seen.
I encourage anyone to step up to the plate and I hope you have more luck than I did...I need a pair, but I'm really looking for a AutoCAD file to 3D print off of. If anyone has the time to give me a good file drawn up, and it works well I'll try to get you a pair or two. This obviously wont be nearly as flexible, but might be a an acceptable substitute. PM me please
^what he said :sarcasm:This technology is awesome, just the right size for whiskers:
I want this gizmo, but at $5500 it's still a little steep. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the Mark II version...
We tried printing whiskers, but the problem with current 3D printing technology is the overhang. The regular plastic cannot support itself and it sags or de-laminates.
