How to find your silver SUV in a large parking lot full of silver SUV's

Posted · How to find your silver SUV in a large parking lot full of silver SUV's



A total of 24 hours for the 2 mounting brackets and 2 fin pieces printed in PETG.

The front of the fin has 1 pause to insert nuts and 4 pauses for color changes.

The back part has 1 pause for nuts, 6 pauses for color changes, and a pause to insert a 4mm steel reinforcing rod (to keep the model from warping in the Florida sun).  There is also a gradual change in Y accel on the back part as my Ender needs to slow down on tall skinny parts.  With the pauses, accel change, and my normal post processors running there was a total of 12 post processors in play for the rear part.

The stars were printed separately and are glued into pockets in the blue section.  The stars were printed "one at a time" (only because I had never used it to actually print something).  Cooling was an issue on the stars but fortunately another custom post processor I call "Very Cool" worked quite well.  It retracts, lifts, and then travels in a grid pattern across the top of the print with the fan running.  It works really well on support-interfaces.


Now, when St. Paula the Patient goes for groceries, she can find her vehicle in the parking lot when she comes back out.
