3D printing; wheelie useful!

Nephew Robin needed some custom brackets to display road wheels at his business Cycles Galleria; 3D printing to the rescue! Here's a render of the models...

And here's the real thing:

As you can see the brackets are printed in two colours, with the Cycles Galleria logo built into the print. Printed from ABS plastic, they are remarkably strong. The printer used was a Makerbot Replicator 2X - a fantastic printer once you have customised it a bit! You can find other things I have made for it and with it at Thingiverse.
