Yeah, I wouldn't trust a 3d-printed block to lift a car.
Just cut the appropriate notches into a piece of 2x4.

Nissan Leaf Accessory 3d Printer Models

Mon Nov 09, 2015 1:05 pm

I am going to see if I can get someone to crush-test it. I've had the car up on it for 2 weeks (Nissan parts is VERY slow), and I will take a look at it afterwards to see if it is cracked or deformed.

Force is between 200-400 lbs/in2 depending upon whether you use a jack or jack stand. A single 2x2 lego can support 950lbs (around 3800 lbs/in2) without infill (ABS).

And there is really no reason to get under a Leaf, so not the same issue as jack stands on an ICE vehicle.

Old thread, but here's a Leaf keychain I designed/printed. If anyone wants one that can't print them, I can do a run of them. Mine is flexible TPU so it's pretty much unbreakable.
