Default 3D Printed Seat Belt Holder

Previously I made a seatbelt bracket out of foam and then covered it with fiberglass. Took a long time to smooth and make nice (~6-8hrs of labor).

Used the same dimensions and printed one for another RV-10. Took about 30 min to draw on Solidworks and then about 4 hrs to print but I just walked off and picked up the finished part later in the day. Much easier.

You can make one from here

I like it. Seat belts are always a hassle.

Lightbulb Here's a thought...

Are you going to make them available to folks who don't have the luxury of having access to a 3D printer? (For a nominal fee, of course!)

You don't have to have a 3d printer. If you have the source file there are places that will print it for you.

a quick search of google 3d print services and you will find a few ups stores have them. Don't know what they charge...

I'd be willing to make everyone that wants these a deal.

I have a 3D printer at school.

Let me see what it will cost me in material to print these, and (with the creators permission) I will print you a set for a donation to Tango Flight, our non-profit that is funding our RV-12 build (www.tangoflight.org).

I'll have to check pricing for material on Monday, but I think I can make these for quite a bit less than any of the online services, and you would be helping out my program!

Dan, feel free to use the thingiverse file if donations go to your school project.
