Replacement Door Lock Escutcheons Manufactured

Postby CallMeLegend » Fri 17.07.2020, 10:13

After a pretty fruitless search for door lock escutcheons that were a price I was happy with (£40 each is a bit steep) I took matters into my own hands.

I measured, modelled in CAD & had 3d printed in carbon fibre reinforced SLS a replacement to see if it was a viable proposition.

It is. A minor change to the profile is required to get it sitting down slightly better, but I happy overall. The best bit if I need another I just hit the online print button & it arrives in the post.

Nice.
Demand must be low if 3d printing is able to compete.
Getting the artwork right can take some time & effort.

Fantastic, it looks great! Would you be willing to share a link to your 3d model? It would be nice to start getting a collection together of unobtanium 3d printed alternatives.
