    Just wanted to point out that there are a few files on Thingiverse for those that want to print out their own items.

    Center Wheel Cap Cover for 18" aero rims. 4 different designs. Two with Tesla logo (Raised and Recessed) and Two with the ☰ logo (Raised and Recessed) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2921407

    Also, there is a few coaster designs:
    Square Model 3 words https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2921407
    Square Model ☰ symbol https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2347643
    Tesla Shield https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2753261

    Taller Phone Dock attachment https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2797028
    Phone Dock with "arms" for landscape viewing of Note 8 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2904734

    This list will explode as more people get Model 3s.

    Someone here made a little drawer with a sunglass holder for the front cubby area of the dash. He even covered it with felt and it also allows the top cover to close.

    Chojn1...we're still waiting for his files :)

    I'm working on my own version. 1st prototype is printing as we speak. If I come up with anything decent, I'll share the files.

    Speaking of, if anyone can think of something they think would be useful: describe it here or draw me a sketch, and I'd be willing to give it a crack.

    Thanks for sharing! Even if your make isn't perfect, posting it in Thingiverse is a good starting point for others to remix your design for improvements.

    I have pretty much zero design ability but I own a 3D printer and am happy to print stuff for people who don't have access to one. I'm very interested in that sunglass holder from the other thread.

    Another item that I'd love to see if something that has very small clips and hands on the display to give you a little storage unit on the back side of the unit. I think this would be a great place for me to keep my sunglasses. I've even considered using mouting tape but I can't get myself to use mouting tape on my new baby.

    I may take you up on that offer Allan! I live in Florida and I'm interested in the Taller Phone Docks. My phone is too thick for the current dock and I'm not a fan of how it slips into the open space between the console doors.

    give me the link to that one and I'll start it printing. As you know, these things print slow but if I start it now it will likely finish over night.

    He’s probably referring to the one listed in the OP

    I've been thinking about that -- though there's no obvious mounting other than sticky. Any clever ideas? (A saddle over the display trunk would be possible, but bulky.)

    That’s very kind Allan, but I just learned that the UPS store near me offers 3D printing. I appreciate the offer!

    There's one within 2 miles of me that does it. Do you know if they can do the material like chojin used on his sunglass holder?

    I got a quote for "
    Phone Dock with "arms" for landscape viewing of Note 8 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2904734" from UPS, and they were going to charge $58 for just the main piece, excluding the arms! There's no way I'm paying that much. I'm currently looking at a website for a local 3D printing, but its getting a little complicated with the material choices and such. It's also indicated that for certain types of materials it has a "Hard to remove support issue", so it looks like I'd have to go with a more expensive material (nylon/sls) which will cost $30 bucks. I don't know if anyone else has any insight or guidance on places that may be cheaper.

    I can't wait to see your design. I would be interested in printing one and maybe modifying it to have a slot to drop down my trash into a small bin or pouch underneath the tray.

    Another idea would be this item that Evannex is selling called "Card rails". I considered buying it but I don't really use the keycard, but I like how it makes using the keycard a bit more user friendly. Here's a link to show what I'm talking about. https://evannex.com/products/cardrailstm-integrated-key-card-holder-for-tesla-model-3

    Allan,
    Have you printed any of these items for yourself? I'd love to hear a review or see a pic if you have. I'm interested in the
    Phone Dock with "arms" for landscape viewing of Note 8 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2904734 because it looks closer to the original design. I'm still looking into options for printing locally, but I'm finding the 3D printing world is more complex than I imagined with different materials and such.

    I've had good luck with 3dhubs getting things printed locally fairly inexpensively before. Lots of options but if you want a more polished look you want the smallest filament size that makes sense financially. Usually abs was too large in my experience, better option seemed to be pla.

    I haven't printed any of these ones myself as the files for the one I want (sunglass holder) aren't posted yet.

    As much as I was about to buy a MP 3D printer in the past, I went with a kit. The kit that I bought was the Anet A8 and it's on sale again for $125 which is the same price I bought it for about 3 months ago. Make sure you select US Adapter when adding it to your cart and use code "LITBA8US" to get $40 off and free shipping and you will only pay $125. I actually just bought another kit today for parts since buying stepper motors or hotends or heated beds separately will be much more money. https://www.lightinthebox.com/en/p/...lity-fdm-desktop-diy-3d-printer_p5081190.html

    Assembling the 3D printer requires someone to be slightly mechanically inclined but I think any owner of a 3D printer needs to be mechanically and technically inclined. This is much more complicated than an inkjet printer and needs alignment and adjustment and problem solving throughout ownership. Anyone put off by assembling a 3D printer kit will not be better off spending $300 for an assembled Monoprice and can't fix problems in the future.
