My dad has an aluminum manufacturing foundry. Billet aluminum isn't cheap, but they have multiple 3D CNC's. Do you have the solidworks file for it?

edit... nm, apparently you've figured this out.

Good read. I love these things. There are so many things that can be done with them. Think about all the little items that break in our life every day and cause us to have to run to some specialty store to get an obscure replacement.

I should have his parts machined and shipped by this weekend. We waited until we could find a really good deal on aluminum since 7" round billet is really expensive.

I took a class offered at work where we did 8 weeks of 3hr/night/once per week machining work. It was a fantastic class taught in our biggest machine shop at our campus, yet taught by one of the local tech school teachers. Some of the most important stuff I learned was metal work is NOT easy, it is easy to make mistakes, and a 2 minute job for one machine can be an all day project for another. I have a new respect for folks that can crank those parts out. I suggest anyone that has access to a class like that take one because you will learn a lot. Now I can use the lab shop at work and crank out some simple parts on our Bridgeports and lathes. First on my list is my mirror knob that I heard is really expensive and easy to lose. I plan on making a few of them when I get a chance.

Ok, we finally got some left over aluminum that I was able to snag for free. Parts shipped out today. Hopefully everything fits good and we will get some pics up soon! I have enough left over for two more if anyone needed something similar.

I have a request that I'll bet more than I would want

I have a 2007 X2 and installed the wetsounds EQ in the lower right of the dash. The lower left has an aluminum piece with the trim gauge and switch. It would be awesome to have a matching one with the correct dimentions for the wetsound EQ
