Man this is very cool, I think I might have to jump into this.
My buddy just got his 4th 3D printer that can do almost 16"x16". He sells stupid tchotchkes on Etsy that funds all of them. I put in a GPSMAP 8610 a year ago and there are still some mounting holes from the previous setup that I was eventually going to put Starboard over. Now we are working on printing a faceplate to go between the mfd plus my newly installed VHF (not shown) and the console. He is going to integrate a Phone mount we can feed a phone charging dongle to it as well as updated hanger bracket for VHF headset. Using UV resistant filament. Project will cost a few bucks
I’ve been entertaining making a custom console for my next MFD since there’s no place it’ll fit in the dash. I’d like to gel coat over it to match so it looks like a planned addition. I’m wondering if there are examples of these out there that I can use for inspiration as I design this thing. I might even design them for other folks if I get a workflow down.
What about jumping into one of these?
Here it is completed.
I would go for a ride.
This is just a thought. But I would consider printing a structure that you want and then layering it with a sheet or two of fiberglass covered with gelcoat. I don’t know what getting the fiberglass to stick to the plastic would entail though.
This goes to the left of the helm where the radar was on a 1997 400DA. The original is mounted straight up and down. This angles the unit up toward the user. I can’t find a picture of it installed. Maybe this will help give you an idea for your project.
Trying to design and print some new vent hole covers. If they turn out okay, I'll add some pics of the install.
You could sell those!
You can buy those pretty cheap in SS
I've looked at the ss ones, and am concerned that the slat design would overly restrict airflow. The oem inserts have almost no slats which I assume was done to ensure max airflow for the engines. As I've upgraded from the original 7.4s to 8.2s I'd be concerned about putting anything on there that could inhibit airflow.
Is this for your horn cover? If so I can send you the file I made
Wanted to replace my “in hull” horns with a new set. The new ones are louder but mount differently so I made a new mount that will direct the horns out and seal off the rest of the hole. Not sure if this will hold up but here it is.
just need to seal the gaps with some sealant.
Making some progress on a new version of vent diverters for the forward berth AC. Not completely happy with these but it’s a big improvement over my previous one.
Did you mount the horns yet?
No I haven’t been to the parts store yet. I want to put a piece of rubber between the mount and hull.
