I used makerbot tough PLA, but I'm not sure it's the best option-- it gets a little softer than I'd like when left in very hot places.

Here's another, though somebody else is going to have to contribute at some point

This is a Qi charger to be installed in the door pocket. It's shorter than the side of the door pocket, so you can only see it if you're above the door pocket looking down on it.

It's sized to fit any generation of Qi enabled iPhone, with an Apple leather case.

The cut out in the back is for the charger (link below), the circle thing is to hold a DC plug maker. The square cutouts are for foam tape (linked) to keep the phone/case from getting scratched up. The missing center is to let you get your fingers under the phone for easy removal.

It's two parts-- the main unit and the back plate. I 3M double sided taped the backing plate to the inside of door pocket and it's plenty secure (and easily reversible).

Here's what both parts look like:

Things you'll need to use this:








USB cable capable of carrying 18 amps
Foam tape

Since this is a directory of parts to 3D Print/Machine, and I haven't seen any machined parts yet, I figured it was finally time to post this part. As you can see I machined it out of 6061 aluminum and Lexan, though I'm sure it could probably be 3D printed out of clear filament as well.

When I ordered my Avin headunit, I opted for the reverse camera part as well. Upon closer inspection I found (like many others) that it wasn't even close to being usable. From that point I designed this part to use the led and camera modules from the ill-fitting part and adapt them to the rear of my vert. From what I've heard, the coupe is different, so I'm not sure if it will fit the coupe.

I popped out the existing bulb, bulb carrier, and rear cover from the rear vert and this unit slides right in using the factory license plate cover gasket. The unit was installed fully assembled, with the two left screws (8-32 I believe) loose enough that the machined hook could pass by the housing, then they were tightened up.










Hot glue was used to secure the LED module into the Lexan window.







Below is a link to the files. I have included in the directory a combined STEP, separate STL's and the Fusion 360 F3Z file as well.

I designed a 3D printable valve shim tool as it was simple enough that I couldn't justify purchasing one. The thingiverse link is posted below, along with all files, photos, and required neodymium magnet.

Here is a key holder for our keys that I helped my daughter create. We have 2 E46's and an R52 and don't like to attach rings to the keys. This is a nice way to keep them organized.
