Hey guys,

Anyone out there able to 3d print any parts?  I need someone to make me a retainer for my shifter assembly.   Id like to get a bunch of these made for the mazda/speed owners, as its a very common part to break when installing a short shift assembly.

Thanks!

      Probably not "mass produced". But if its something small (likely it is), I can't see it being difficult to make a handful of them. Something for a group buy.

      I believe @Colby has access to a CNC. Perhaps that can help you @dan

        Id like to get about 20 made and take it from there.   I've spoken with Igor, and seems to be a little more difficult than i originally thought.

          Have you looked into either DIY or asking someone at NorthForge, or a service like MakeXYZ? There are huge 3D printing communities online and a lot of people who will do commissions.

            Never even heard of Northforge.   I'll have to look into that.   Thanks @firelizard

              It used to be called Assent Works before. Awesome place.
