The program will run the same as the previous 370z program. Workshop 12 requires 50 deposits of $60 USD to start the project. No credit cards are charged until all 50 slots are filled.
Once all 50 slots are filled, customers will be notified and credit cards will be charged so that the R&D work of laser scanning and 3D modeling begins. Plastic design typically takes about 5-6 weeks and climate control will depend on complexity of circuitry.
Customers in the deposit program will then get their $60 USD deposit back via PayPal after ordering the final kit. Final kit pricing will be similar to other Brainiac plastic kits.

Workshop 12 has partnered with Shapeways.com to provide 3D printing services for Brainiac plastics. Shapeways provides great customer service and quality printed products at a very competitive price.
Shapeways Versatile Plastic is a durable nylon plastic that can be used for a wide range of applications, both for prototyping and for end products. Printed using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), when thin, it’s flexible enough for hinges and springs and when thick, it’s strong enough for structural components.
The Brainiac custom fit plastics for the 2015+ Subaru WRX/STI will likely be designed to securely hold a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1" tablet in your dashboard creating a sleek factory integrated look. Tablet selection will be based on what will fit in the factory dashboard. Once confirmed, the starting point will be to acquire one of these tablets if you do not already have one.
In order to get an OEM quality fit for Brainiac plastics Workshop 12 utilizes 3D laser scanning to get everything just right.
After laser scanning, a 3D model can be created to utilize all OEM mounting points, clips and screws to make the plastics seem like they should have been there in the first place!
Workshop 12 aims to tackle the most important items such as easy screen navigtion and media control.
Tailor your system's experience the way you want through multiple settings and expand your vehicle's integration with Brainiac accessory support.
Brainiac Version 3 is now available!
A similar approach will be taken with the 2015+ WRX/STI climate control circuitry.
This circuitry is still in an R&D phase and therefore we don't yet have pricing details that we can share. Updates will be provided as more details become available.
