  1. Easy work, my only problem is work gets in the way of time. Wont take long to fill up the windows. You reckon 2mm wall section, or do you want thicker Cheers Aposs
  2. & another, still a bit of tidy up but looks good
  3. Startig to clean up models, Cheers Aposs
  4. Ideally yes but in my shed no no such available technology but it seems to have worked OK the true test will be when I get the first product out of the mold Looking forward to it. This seems to be very different to how im use to making moulds how do you get a uniform thickness? I am with Rob, this is new to me. I am used to vacuum chambers, outer & inner mould etc.. How do you get an even wall section, is it just how thick the material that is used is when poured into the mould? Cheers Aposs
  5. Ideally yes but in my shed no no such available technology but it seems to have worked OK the true test will be when I get the first product out of the mold Good job! Cheers Aposs
  6. Yep, dead right, Once I scan it, I can scale it to whatever size required, all I need is the overall sizes & I will match them Cheers Aposs
  7. Hi Knoath, Doesn't take up alot of my time, scanning cars is all of half hour work, printing done while i sleep. Also, I am not on this forum to sell any products. Yes, i do sell printers, laser scanners, but also plenty of other industrial & measurement equipment. I am not on this forum to sell any equipment, price excludes all but big business' anyway, considering you need over $150K to get scanning, this is purely a love job for me. If i can do soemthing that makes the hobby more interesting, & gets people thinking, & others enjoy using what i have to offer to help there hobbies, then all the better. I am new to the hobby, & cant wait to start using my resources to create something that is a little unique. If i can offer my equipment for use, & to only cover my costs, i am more than happy to. BTW, no offence taken at all mate, just want to make it all clear i am not here to make profit, not here to sell equipment, but on this forum to enjoy the hobby, & offer my services, be it specialised, in much the same way as other guys on this site do. It just so happens my equipment is pretty cool (& fun to use) Cheers Aposs
  8. Yep, got the e-mail, did open but didn't have much time to play with it. Will have more of play this evening Cheers Aposs
  9. Watch this space, things are a brewing ............ More details later Cheers Aposs
  10. Hi Lav, I can read in a dwg, just depends on the version. I will PM you with my e-mail address & lets see what I can do Cheers Aposs
  11. Sorry BMR, Was called interstate, bl***y work gets in the way of fun things. Will PM you, want to scan those models Cheers Aposs Ok Adam catch ya soon - Monday night looks like a race night at my place you can meet a few of the SCSC people that have contacted you and have a play on the track , if they leave you alone long enough to actually play on the track instead of talking about the 3d printer all night. Theres plenty of spare cars and controllers you can use Sounds good, might even print off a sample body & bring up for you to see. Cheers Aposs
  12. Sorry BMR, Was called interstate, bl***y work gets in the way of fun things. Will PM you, want to scan those models Cheers Aposs
  13. The problem with printing is the expense, maybe OK for 1 or 2 offs, but anymore. its more economical to run a mould off. Knoath, I can shape the bottom, & add the posts to attach the chassis to the body, just need to measure the desired chassis, & add to the model. As for tidying up, just making the windows & any rough edges smoother, probably only 10-20 minutes work!! Ahh, the joy of technology, & industry is still slow to equip themselves with cutting edge technology. This took about 5 minutes, whole cars take me about half a day to scan! Cheers Aposs
  14. Guys, The screen shot of a scanned model. This can now be tidied up, printed, & mould taken off. I can also add thickness. Cheers Aposs
  15. Hi Phil, I scanned a 70's Ford Capri today & processed the data to a semi usable form in pretty much 1 hour. Scaling the file up or down is just a click of the button. Pritning will only be a few hours, so as a guess, i would say you could scan & print in a day. I will be playing with the data thi evening & post images later Cheers Aposs
