Hey gang!

I’m currently working on a duel RX/TX license plate 3D model and wanted to hear what you guys think, I measured and diagonally the RX sensors are about 7-8 inches apart from the TX sensor so I believe I’m solid on spacing for functionality. I’m planning to do a magnetized IR Acrylic cover to conceal the sensors from prying eyes as well. This is my first draft so please feel free to give me any thoughts!

Accidentally uploaded the wrong photos… here’s what I have currently! Roughly 13.5 Inches of space between RX to TX sensor with a total span of 28.5 inches. Working on adding magnet mounting points.

Great start! What software are you using? Can you use a parameter for the angle of the sensors? This would let you easily generate versions that level the sensors on a variety of different vehicles…

Also, what size printer stage would be required for this? Other plate mounts have been split into multiple pieces, in order to be easier to print on a wider array of printers. Could you split this design?

I’m sure you’ve seen it - but just in case, check out this thread (and I see I need to update my printable parts index…)

Using Fusion360, and wow! I didn’t know Cogolden already built exactly what I need! Right now I’m working with my engineer on the viability of adding in magnet mounts to his design for a IR Acrylic cover, and figuring out what adjustments to the angles to fit my accord so the heads will sit level with the ground.
Now to hunt for a printer!

Can the pods on the wings be seperated, the backs rounded, and made in such a manner that they are a slip fit into the wings? As in a slip fit plumbing fitting. Then a set screw to lock them in position. This would allow for angle adjustment and fit multiple vehicles.

Continuing work on how this will come together. Printing it as a single piece isn’t as viable as I originally thought due to it’s span. Cogolden’s design seems to be the most effective for printing, and robust as well. It seems like I might be building off that frame, and adding an IR Acrylic Cover, via magnet mounts.
