    How long will a 3D printed cylinder head last? In this video, I test both PLA and ABS plastic 3D printed cylinder heads (made by Terry from Southern Manitoba Canada--thank you Terry!). The cylinder heads and gaskets look amazing and they were designed with great precision. Thanks to all who recommended this video idea!

    Need glass fiber reinforced plastic ! Try that on head gasket! Or try a thin layer of aluminum foil than plastic..

    Great videos as always and I was curious what do you think a cylinder head made up of the 3-D printed plastic like that would do with a thin layer of metal over it? Perhaps even a layer or coating of J.B. weld,gasket material,high heat paint or finishes,or any other materials that could handle the heat from the engine?

    Pretty sure at the BMW lab they did the same tests yet theu said "that should do it hanz"

    PP can hold way more heat than PLA and ABS

    what about if you just put a piece of aluminium foil over the cylinder head before you mount it.

    Can you make a cylinder head out of bread ? Make sure to use the good stuff like full grain.

    Now you know why BMW don't last while using plastic for all their car parts, and that is why they are massive money pits.

    Now use lost PLA casting and make a cast aluminum one.

    PLASTIC DOES NOT WORK AS ANY CYLINDER COMPONENT!! period!

    Thanks for proving that 3D printers (with plastic) are good for only mock up non functioning designs and avoid designs that might put you at risk for danger.. Been trying to tell some of my buddies for 10 or so years. Same ones that bought expensive computers to Crypto currency Mine.. a contradiction in terms.

    Does anybody else click "like" before one of his videos starts because you already know that you will ?? I do !

    You should do a print with a high heat tolerance. I have a printer at work that will use the onyx material from Markforged, I've used it for printing plastic molds exposed to a couple hundred degrees, now I'm curious how they'd hold up. I can also reinforce them with continuous carbon fiber or kevlar filament.

    note: petg will hold up much better than PLA.

    I've heard ironwood is very hard and dense. It actually sinks in water. I wonder how that would hold up.

    Dip the plastic heads in Zirconium or other ultra heat resistant coatings and see how it does

    BACK IN THE 80'S THE JAPANESE WERE EXPERIMENTING WITH CERAMICS ENGINES. FORD KILLED THAT TECHNOLOGY WHEN THEY DEVELOPED A PLASTIC ENGINE THAT ACTUALLY WORKED RIGHT DOWN TO USING A PLASTIC CRANKSHAFT. FORD WAS DEVELOPING HIGH STRENGTH THERMO PLASTICS. WHICH IS GOOD INSIGHT FOR THE FELLOW WHO SENT YOU THOSE PLASTIC HEADS.

    If you could make a heat resistant plastic, this might actually work

    You should try to make a head gasket out of heat resistant acrylic! I don’t think it costs any more than normal acrylic

    Is there a plastic that's not sensitive to heat or a type of plastic that's mixed in with carbon fiber or metals that don't conduct much heat ?

    Hey mate I have a Musso 2007 2.9turbo diesel I want to upgrade the turbocharger to bigger one without heroic modifications to the engine, plz note my engine is based on a Mercedes benz Om662 I need your advice as u one of unique science based personnel that I respect, thx mate keep it up
