Fix Your Ford With a 3D Printer





Introduction: Fix Your Ford With a 3D Printer

If you have a Ford truck you are prolly miss'n one or more of these silly caps. I run a 2005 F250 Superduty but these should fit F150 as well as other Ford models around that time frame. I designed them so they actually latch in; instead of gingerly sitting on the lip surround and just waiting for that next pot-hole impact to fly out.

You can grab my 3D model here: and use the free 123D app by Autodesk here: to mod if you like (add your initials to the tops of the caps) and then export to your preferred format for 3D printing; here is a sample workflow I have used  at home designing and printing with great results:

These caps take me less than 30min a pair to print and have been tested vigorously on fairly horrible roadway/fields.  I only had black ABS filament but you can source grey or beige plastic too if your after that near OEM look.

Make on!
