For the love of god. If someone has a seat, scan it and post the scan on thingiverse. You could 3d-print it in sections if you had to, join the sections, paint it, and be done. No it's not the simplest project, but it's extremely doable and there's no other source. And scanning doesn't sacrifice an original seat! For that matter, ALL the parts of ALL the bots should be scanned and available as 3D print files by now.

That link doesn't seem to be for the GM/Century Infant Love Seat. It would be nice if there was a design on thingiverse.com. Hell, if someone had a seat sitting around I'd be more than happy to whip getting it scanned and posted.

He did tell me that the new gypsy's head is 3d printed.

You donít say...

Are you kidding me?? Got a link to the closed auction? I just checked like two days ago and didn't see one!! Ugh! I would have GLADLY paid that. Dammit!

It would just be a matter of getting the seat to someone with a scanner. My daughter took an art class at her university last year and they had a complete fab lab available, along with a nice 3D scanner that they let her use. Not saying the university would be happy about cranking out 3D printed car seats, but it wouldn't have been a problem to get the scan done. After that it's a matter of finding a fabricator who can either do the whole seat at once or do it in sections that could then be joined together. My kid just transferred to another school, and the new school has a scanner. I'll just have to see if she can get someone to let her use it.

If I can get access to the scanner, I'll let you know and see if we can work something out. I'm in northern VA, btw.

For those of us who don't have a seat blank, original or repro, there aren't many other options. Expensive or not, I'm guessing some of us would pay it. Even if you didn't print it, with a scan you could CNC a mold out of foam or something and then lay up some fiberglass or whatever. Regardless, anything would be better than what we have now, which is nothing. If repros were available, this discussion would be moot. But until then...

Anybody out there want to loan out or sell a seat to get it scanned? I'm betting there are enough creative people out there to get something working if we had an image.

It would be great if someone who HAS an original seat would scan it or loan it to someone who could GET it scanned, and then distribute the scan and let people 3-D print that sucker. Be a lot less hassle that trying to cast it or make molds for fiberglass, etc.
