Design and 3D Printing for Classic Cars & Motorcycles
PrintSolid design and manufacture bespoke parts for classic car restorers and clubs, bringing no longer available parts back to the market. We design new and updated products to retrofit to older vehicles in response to demand from clubs and classic car associations and individual car owners.
We run multiple, large-format printers allowing us to ensure the most efficient printer configuration, be it for speed, quality, strength or all of the above.
Our printers run 24-hours a day 7 days a week enabling us to turn around orders in a relatively short time frame, but it's not all about the big stuff, many of our commissions are small one off brackets and clips.
From that elusive trim clip for a Datsun 240z to bespoke induction scoops for a DeLorean motor car, PrintSolid can design a solution and manufacture in low volume, extremely cost effectively.
We are located in Colchester, Essex but ship domestically and internationally.
A local car trimming company approached us to assist with a Datsun 240z which they were re-trimming.
PrintSolid designed and manufactured a cup and smartphone holder for the DeLorean motor car.
PrintSolid designed and manufactured a new induction scoop system for the DeLorean Motor Car to air flow to the engine inlet.
A contact at a local car club was short of 3 clips for his spare wheel cover in his 2002 Chevrolet Camaro. His only option was buying tatty looking used ones at great expense but PrintSolid were happy to reproduce them.
A small link arm in the air conditioning system of a 1980's classic car had become brittle and failed, we improved on the design to make it stronger and printed them for the client.
Out of production for many years, these simple little clips were re-drawn in CAD and printed in PETG and are used to secure the rear license plate on the rear of a classic car.
Owner of a houseboat required brackets to mount solar panels to the curved roof of his boat. Using a rough, wooden prototype supplied by the customer we reproduced left and right hand versions.
A keen local fishing enthusiast asked if we could redesign the back plate for his line sensors as his rod kept falling out of the original. It's not quite classic car, but we were pleased to help.
PrintSolid joined forces with thousands of UK printers to manufacture face shields during the start of the COVID19 Pandemic. These were donated free of charge to front line health workers, care homes and schools. Over 2000 units were dispatched from our Colchester hub.
