That's a fantastic idea! Love it.
Would you be willing to share your RX sensor mount 3d files? I have no idea how to use cad software and the slim "barely there" designs you designed, would work perfectly for my application!Just got my car back from the shop and was able to test fit my prints. Very happy with quality and price of the Jaws ASA Prints:
Thanks for sending the link for those 3d files. I was talking about the extra thin mounts. Like in the pictures you posted. Here.Front and back ALP License Plate mounts for my Kia Stinger are here, everything has been printed and test fit, but it has not been tested against any real threats.
The back bracket tucks the sensors up under the lip of the trunk. The front bracket is made thick to keep the TX flush with the front of the plate, and it mimics the curve of the upper grill. It drops the RX sensors down and slightly behind the plate, into the lower grill.
Front and rear ALP mounts for KIA Stinger GT2. Rear trunk slope measured to be 15 degrees upwards. Rear RX tilted 15 degrees downward & Rear TX tilted 14 degrees downward to compensate. Rear TX tucks up into the left half of power lift gate release. TX fit may change on non-power lift gate...www.thingiverse.com
Your slim RX sensor mounts are look great and exactly what I was hoping to use for my install. I don't have much room for mounting my rear sensors... Would you be open to sharing these 3D files??Just got my car back from the shop and was able to test fit my prints. Very happy with quality and price of the Jaws ASA Prints:
He used SLA for this print, specifically this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07M8J8PCX/?tag=rdf0cd0c-20Given space constraints and the cable routing for my install (it's a big bundle of wire with 6 heads!) I didn't find the ALP control box holders to be very useful.
I had better luck zip tie-ing the CPU/GPS/BT units in place as I went, and also spreading out the units. GPS tucked high under the dash, BT closer to the driver. It also became very important to strategically position extra cable. I mounted the heads first, then the CPU, and then picked a spot along the cable run to loop and hide the excess cable. I need to do an install write-up this weekend.
It looks like the print has some bowing, you might want to double check that everything still fits, worst case print it oversize and use some padding.
Depending on the type of resin, SLA can handle the temp inside a car, and under the dash you shouldn't have to worry about UV stability.
Edit: Double check the resin used, and make sure it won't melt inside a hot summer car.
This one is rated for 160c, so I hope my car doesn't get that warm internally, haha.
