Cool, I'll definitely make you guys a set.

I think they'll cost around $40 a pair. If this works for you, send me a PM with the color you'd like (right now I can do black, white, or orange. Custom colors are an extra $15. Search PLA filament on Amazon if you want something different).

I'll need to know the size duct you want as well.

Shipping with be around $20. The rest will be covering material and print time (around 14hrs a set).

Also, it would take me a couple weeks before I can ship out. They're made to order and I'll be on work travel until next week.

Are you printing these in PLA? I think that plastic type dissolves in water.
Big thanks for sharing the design by the way, I'll might try and get it printed locally.

Yes, I'm printing them in PLA.

Shouldn't have any issues with it dissolving though. I've made PLA parts for years and haven't had any problems with it. Brackets to help with my splitter mount are made from PLA and have been fine for over a year now under the car, among a lot of other parts scattered around the car/house that are subjected to the elements.

I do prefer to coat them with a combo paint/primer spray can just to give it an extra seal.

I have a few parts in the bonnet that are ABS since they need a little more heat resistance.

FWIW, I installed the first Wasp duct configuration onto my AP2 back in late 2013. After a few track days, the ducting repeatedly slipped off of the end of the molded outlet. I had to put a retention lip onto the outlet using a "heat-to-shrink thermoplastic material. That cured the slippage. You may want to incorporate a "retention bulge" on the outlet to manage this sort of issue. You may also wish to incorporate a grill at the inlet side to prevent tire rubber bits from entering while you are on the race track. Highly recommended.

Both good ideas. I already added the retention ring to my model (more of an o-ring size for mine).

I'll look into the grill though. Both are easy to implement. I can print a grill easily.

Appreciate the ideas.

Also, I forgot to upload the different versions of the AP1 last night. I'll try and upload the 2.5" and 3" versions today or tomorrow.

I'm in for a set of AP1 ones, but I don't want you to get overloaded with orders up front so I'll be patient and wait.


edit: Oh, wait, I see you posted the STL files.

Nice! I've been trying to do this for my AP2. I used a Microsoft Kinect to scan the inside of the bumper, then I modeled up the duct to fit around it. I took the model and 3D printed it. It's my first time doing any kind of 3D modeling/printing so it's taken me a few months on and off to figure it all out.

I haven't installed the duct yet, but I'm planning on using an adhesive to attach it to the bumper.
