Eventually, we'll lose aftermarket support for metal parts, I imagine... the heavier pieces, like control arms and whatnot.

And eventually all electronic parts will be extinct, in which case nothing electronic in the car will be Volvo. Everything will have to be megasquirted and we'll be buying our relays from Target.

By then someone will have created a kit for an efficient electric motor swap. Its coming. Ive seen some crazy mods down at caffeine and octane. Various models with tesla drives.

Pretty much anything can do what's here.

It's important to have a couple things in your printer to make it easier though. A heated bed, a workspace that's at least 200x200 (if square), and a community to offer help with your specific model. A good starting point is a Creality Ender 3, which is unofficially the 'standard' printer. Parts are readily available, modifications are well documented, there are thousands of Youtube videos on every problem you could encounter, and the community is huge.

One thing to keep in mind is that the more exotic materials (Nylon, etc) require nozzle temperatures much higher than a standard printer can achieve, and are not a good idea for beginners. PLA is the default material, it requires no special preparations and is the best place to start because it's very forgiving .

Might as well post up my contribution to the cause. I have been rocking both of these items on my car since the summer, and there has been zero degradation or explosions. I HIGHLY recommend using TPU at 100% infill in order to achieve the proper hardness. The swaybar bushings were done with 95A and the endlink bushings were done with 85A. Flexibles are REALLY tough to print, so be warned if you've never done it before. You print the swaybar bushings and then slice them along the side in order to get them over the bar. That's another reason to use 100% infill.

TPU are thermoplastics, so they WILL soften with high heat. They won't melt, but they'll probably get softer. I live in Canada, so I was able to test these on days up to 30*C, and everything has been fine...considering they're hidden under the car. I don't know what will happen if you're stuck in traffic, in LA, on a freshly paved highway. I have NO idea what will happen if they're used in freezing temperatures (my car is a spring/summer/fall cruiser). Use at your own risk.

The second thing I made was an addition to the Blippy cupholder for 240s. I prefer can drinks to coffee, so a cupholder that couldn't hold cans was no use to me. I made a quick little can adapter that slots into the Blippy design to allow can use. It's removable too, just in case I ever feel like having a coffee or fountain drink . A hole is needed in the bottom to prevent vacuum lock (it fits very close to the can), and I didn't notice until after it was uploaded on thingiverse.
