    If you have a Cricut machine they are fantastic for cutting gaskets from gasket material sheet.

    Thanks Elizabeth. I do not have a Cricut but I do have a laser that I will be trying at some point. These videos are just a proof of concept for 3d Printed. Thanks!

    I use my Silhouette Cameo 4 for making gaskets. Overhauled the carbs on my Evinrude and the kits didn`t come with two gaskets I needed so I downloaded a pic of the gaskets and cleaned them up and made them out of manila folders.Heat treating 3D printed gaskets-float-gauge.jpg The kits also did not come with a float gauge so I made one of them, too.Heat treating 3D printed gaskets-gasket.jpg

    Awesome! I needed a thermostat gasket so I put the housing on my scanner along with a quarter for scale. In fusion 360 I imported the image as a canvas, scaled it, and made the sketch from that.

    I could have bought the gasket for a buck, but I enjoyed making it instead.
