Summary

This thing was made with Tinkercad.

If you have a Generation III Prius (2010-present), you can pop off the UGLY wheel covers to release the alloy beasts underneath. Except - you'll have a hole in the center of the wheel that begs for a decorative cap. This is precisely measured from the Toyota part number 42603-52110 (pictured).

This has the iconic power symbol embossed in the top of the wheel cover, as found on the power button of your Prius. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_symbol

Also fits Yaris, Vios

These and other center cap designs, for GenII and GenIII are available through Shapeways:

Instructions

I'm not sure how these WILL print on an extruder type machine- I am sure that they will need support. Experimentation is in order. The photographs are of sintered-nylon samples printed by Shapeways.

Disclaimer- you print and use this part at your own risk.

Painting ABS is fairly straight forward: just rough it up a bit with some fine sandpaper and hit it with a few light coats of your preferred body paint. No primer necessary.

Acrylic paint works best for 3d printed parts?

It certainly works well for the 3D printed parts I get from Shapeways. I also use a primer and a clear topcoat.

Thanks for the nice design.
