Fabrication: 3D Scanning

I didn’t mean for this little project to get so out of hand, but when there is a will… there is a really long winded way of solving a problem.

Firstly, my fuel injection conversion needed a swirl pot. A swirl pot is an intermediate fuel tank in between your original low pressure fuel tank and the high pressure fuel system. It is not always needed, depending on whether you swapped out your old low pressure fuel pump for an in tank high pressure pump or not. Seeing as I already own a perfectly good Facet lift pump, which is feeding my carburettor, I decided to install a swirl pot.… Read More

Fabrication: 3D Printer Round Two

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Before I begin I would like to state that I did not leave the fuel pump bracket in plain old boring white, but painted it in a stealthy matt black colour (see right). Needless to say I’m bloody happy with how this turned out, especially for my first 3D printed design. However this was a very simple print, with minimal overhangs and most of the printing motion was through the z-axis. Although I think it’s gorgeous it doesn’t push the envelope of what my printer is able to do. Moving on…

I needed a throttle cable bracket for the throttle bodies going on my daily driver.… Read More
