The joys of 3D printing

Normally I only post IT related stuff to this blog, but recently I was able to use my 3D printer to fix something that was very difficult to fix just a few years ago.  My Dodge Ram 1500 cup holder is made too weak in my opinion and was easily broken. From what I can tell you can’t buy a replacement anywhere so I  modeled it and printed a replacement. The part was a bit complex and has lots of curves, but this version is holding together so far in my truck.  It was great satisfaction to fix something in this way and to be able to share the part to help others.
