Very impressive.
I hope they’ll built some NLA parts soon.

I'm looking for 107 835 06 21 which is the estucheon for the right HVAC slider. It is NLA.

Its just moulded plastic so perfect for 3D printing.

Think of it like additive manufacturing, one tiny layer at a time.

The image below is a good summary, you can build up an object by 'printing' the layers.



This allows you to build quite complex shapes, for example items that are hollow inside or are rather intricate



The cheap consumer ones are plastic but there are high end ones that do metals. There are a few videos on Jay Lenos' garage where he has printed obscure parts for his pre-war cars.

They might not have key parts available, but they are able to fulfil all needs for a nodding dog.
