Filament

Interior vehicle components exposed to direct solar radiation can get extremely hot (up to 90°C per ISO 16750-4), so using a filament with high temperature resistance is recommended:

  • PETG/PC Blend (110°C temperature resistance).
    • Tip for this filament: print outer walls slowly below 60mm/s for a better-looking (uniform) finish.
  • ASA (100°C temperature resistance).
  • PC (116°C temperature resistance).

Print Settings

Here are the recommended print settings (settings not listed are up to your discretion):

  • Variable layer height from 0.2mm (bottom) to 0.08mm (top). See photo below.
  • 3 Wall loops.
  • 15% infill, except 100% infill from 17.00mm to 18.5mm (for strength).
  • With support:

The Transit Upfitter Auxiliary Switches are located between the passenger/driver seat, and they’re very easy to catch and accidentally turn ON/OFF. We constantly catch them with our knees when going from the front cabin to the living area in our van. It’s also a common complaint from people with dogs.

Our Upfitter Auxiliary Switch Guard prevents from accidentally flipping the switches and protects them from damage (notably when rotating the passenger swivel seat):

Installation


The Guard is attached with 3M VHB Tape (0.375 in width). Clean the surfaces to be bonded with Isopropyl alcohol, peel-off the release liner and apply pressure to the surfaces for 5-10 seconds:

Specifications


  • Dimensions: 4.2in x 2.4in (106mm x 60mm).
  • Compatibility: Ford Transit 2020 to present.
    • The contact surface is curved on pre-2020 Transit and therefore the guard won’t fit.
