I have designed various 3D printed tools and items to help me out during my Mini restoration and since 3D printers seem ubiquitous, I thought it would be great for the community to have a thread where we can share links. If you have your own, or find any designs that you'd like to share, please post them.

Some of my designs (from my Printables profile https://www.printables.com/@Mearcat/models) :

Just finished this up tonight.
Its to replace a mark 1 speedo needle.

Guestimate the size from the remains, put it in CAD and printed a negative to be cast in epoxy, since I didn't have any filament in the right color.

Needs a polish but came up well I think.
