Yeah its just pla plastic. The curved rod i bent by hand.


Cut a form out of MDF of the desired radius minus half the diameter of the threaded rod.

Then just did small bends along the length untilit matched the curve. It was a 1mtr length to start. I checked the curve against a template and cut the best section out.

I would like to 3d print a rack and pinion gear setup but not sure it would be as accurate..
