WOW Karl. Being a painter by trade I thought I had some mad caulking skills I have meant my match.

Seriously though. I looked but didn't really catch what the material is thats coming out of the machine?

It's simple plastic and there are a couple different types/colors available.

It come's in spools like weed whacker cord, and it is melted by a hot tip similar to a hot glue gun...

Actually I think that using a 3d printer to make motorcycle fairing molds designed in CAD could be a pretty lucrative business...

Oh yeah. The chatter is getting fun today. I like the crate and fairing options. My DR650 would love one that looks like it is going to do the Dakar Rally.

@GSAPilot, put me down for $1/bridge, plus another $1/bridge after the next Richmond FF kicks in.
