    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!
    Also, thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Since you are using solid pieces with no cooling fins... Why not try solid metal covers with no cooling fins and see how long they last

    3D printing is fascinating. Even more so since I never expected potential uses in engines. Who knows what may come. Great video!

    VW and BMW engineers are watching this video furiously making notes. The lack of durability of these plastic parts is particularly appealing to them

    But, there will come a day - if not already here - where not only cylinder heads will be printed, but all engine components.

    The answer is - 3D print the part with "Carbon Fiber Nylon" filament material - it handles 350 degree heat and its stupid strong. I make car parts with it.

    Itd be cool if peter brown could make you some various epoxy parts. Possibly a clear intake to watch the fuel atomize

    I could make those same cylinder head molds at home. Might have a hair or two in them but I could make em.

    Someone should provide you with thermosetting polymers or different types of glass, maybe they could last?

    i don't know if this would work at all but you should try a 3d printed piston

    Hmm wonder how well 3d printed metal would do. But those are more expensive.

    ik this is old but they make metal 3d printing filaments Should try one of those out rather than plastic that isnt meant for high temperatures

    I don’t have a 3D printer sry but you should find some one Who does have a 3-D printer and you should make a 3-D printed carburetor

    I believe that you can 3D print metal now. That might last longer as a cylinder.

    It might be just me, but I quite didnt get the reason. The head is made at 3d printer therefore from plastic easily melted by heat. So take it from there it is just no diferent whether the head last a minute or two.
