    3D printed key head

    Hello all, I'm new here but I wanted to show off the key head I built for my '72 R75/5 that I'm working on.

    Obviously it's a very new version, so I have some cleaning up to do, but I'm liking the style- it makes it easier to pull the key in and out, and all the keys I have for this bike have the original plastic broken off.

    I'm open to ideas on what y'all think would look cool, the possibilities are endless really. I just wanted to start simple. Let me know what you think and if you have any ideas for different kinds!
    Thanks,
    Wesley

    Wesley -

    Welcome to the forum! 3-D printing has many interesting ideas...it only takes some imagination as well as having the equipment. I presume you have a scanner as well as software to make the models. What is your key made of? Looks to be brass. I wonder how well that will hold up with the hundreds of times it gets pushed in and pulled out of the ignition switch.
