This is an electrical connector used in automotive where a series of pins are potted to mate with the corresponding sockets in the control device. This is an aluminum part with significant CNC machining involved. I recreated the model to see if the part could made robust enough if it was 3D printed. Sadly, the printed version of this part has limitations in terms of strength but is actually faster to print than to machine.
