Thought it would be a good idea for a thread with links to 3D Printed shwag for the Tacos. Here are a couple items I have purchased that have come in handy.

Tacoma Phone Mount: Great phone mount. I put a small piece of 3m two sided tape on the angled section to keep the mount from sliding around:

Great functional mount with excellent sight line.

Driver side pocket panels:

I have gone through three of these (had a hard time making up my mind) from Shapeways:

Redarc and blank (with drill indents on back):

redark with blank.jpg

Redarc w/ 2 switch spots:

Redarc/Switch/Blank (this is what I am running right now)

panel.jpg

I'm back to the original nob for the subwoofer.

Here is a complete listing for Tacoma stuff on Shapeways. Some really good stuff here, including switch panels for the overhead spot.

What do you have that is 3D printed?

Honestly I can't remember exactly where I ordered this switch mount thing from but I'm quite sure it was shapeways. Anyway, it's a small thing but it's useful for sure, and combined with the ch4x4 switches it helps maintain a more subtle factory appearance. Sits in the same spot as what you've got pictured

3D printing is still kind of fascinating to me. I don't have anything yet though.

I like it a lot. Check out my build thread, there's a long in depth post about towing.

post up more pictures
I haven't ordered a set from their professional grade printers only the Wanhao Duplicator i3 printer.

Edit: If you'd like some closer shots of them I can get them after work today but this is what they look like I printed a set for me and JusCampin and these are images of them installed in his rig.

Do they feel any different. I rarely touch the thing at all because I run everything off of my phone and the steering wheel so I’m not sure if it would be feasible

They are plastic with more of a rough finish and extend a bit further than the OEM knobs. So it makes it easier to use them. I also run most off of the steering wheel but i still use the volume on the dial as it is easier to make larger adjustments.

I got the same one from shapeways! very nice product.

I also made some "grommets" for the ME-SO mirror lights I made. I made them on Fusion 360 and submitted them to an online printing service and they showed up a few days later. They are very small but they work really well and provide a finished look.

I really want to get more into 3D printing but that is one expensive rabbit hole unless I'm selling parts or something.
