Upholsterer?? Can't say I've ever considered sourcing some from an upholsterer.

I just buy 10+ of every style my car needs from partsouq at next to nothing and slowly burn through them as they get wrecked upon removal.

There’s a whole thread on legacygt.com where people have made random 3D printed bits.
 

I imagine if you can get gauge holders sorted for the vents and centre cubby for the 4th gen Legacy’s you’ll make a few bucks for sure.
The only other guy I know of making them 3D printed style currently is pretty rough so if you could improve on that there is a heap of potential. He’s gone with a modular approach where you clip more pods on which doesn't look all that tidy

the design stage is the tricky part to get my head around, even with 20+ years CNC / CAD experience, another dimension is doing my brain in, even though I know what I want to achieve TinkerCAD training is helping

I’m trying not to buy one as well. 
now they have carbon fibre and glass thread filament it’s tempting. 

 

also there are some slicer programs that can make print not 2D layered but real 3D but it’s still very printer dependent and not user friendly. 
 

wait until you find out things like 3D camera can be scanners to get rough models. Like Xbox connect etc for low cost.

hahaha wait till you find the uncensored group on FB or the naughties section on cub3d

 

Bout $5 an hour to cover costs eh, and these things are not fast

 

I'd estimate probably 15-20 hours in that aye depending on scale etc

 

thus not impossible but not cheap!

 

I might just do one of those one day for fun (and actually see)

I'm not an expert but depends how good your superglue is :P

 

mine is 300x300 (footprint) so not an issue (and 400 high build space)

I use Blacks Fasteners quite often, well priced and massive variety available. Not sure if there's one near you?

Just had a request for this from @DRFVDR

 

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2801502

 

Cup holder for Subaru Brumby/Brat

Summary

I was sick of having to balance my morning coffee on the way to work in between my legs so I designed this. It fits in the rectangular slot next to the hand break it may be a little lose but some electrical tape used to shim it works well.

It fits two regular 375ml cans or anything that is a similar size.

It also makes a prety good arm rest when there isn't a cup in it.

I'd say a fair amout of time @ around $5 an hour would be worth more than the $25 you can get a pair for eh (Plus shipping) inless there's someone near you on here

 

could just get these https://www.crazysystems.co.nz/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1550

 

or bug @matipo in Hamz (Car Stereo Shop

 

hecka they are even all of $3 if you wanna wait for these

I'm discovering yeah these machines are great, but can be a PITA to actually use etc)
