Default Tmcp #404 engineer dan cheveralls – using 3d printing for one-off reproduction parts

This weeks show is with Dan Cheveralls, an engineer at a tools company and a fellow Dukes of Hazzard fan. His experience as a product development engineer brought him into the fold of using 3D printing for the development and evaluation of new products, and he has successfully integrated this into his personal life by creating “one-off” parts for his own restoration projects. Since the viability of 3D printing has been a common question as of late I asked him on the show to share the process!

Dan grew up in Boston Mass and admits his family was not into racing or cars. He says he is a “second generation” Dukes of Hazzard fan as he grew up watching the re-runs on TNN and fell in love with the General Lee. He also fell in love the idea of the Duke boys on the “NASCAR circuit” and it eventually formed his career in cars and racing. The show changed his life and he became an engineer working on a NASCAR race team and living in Charlotte NC. These experiences gave him the fast design and manufacturing skills to build accurate pieces for his side project, a 1969 Charger General Lee clone. He is a stickler for details and is using 3D printing to build replica parts that look and work better.
