Hi All,

@Stumbley & ZeGas - I'll have it to you over the weekend.

@WKM - I've heard a lot of very good feedback regarding Fusion 360, I'll give it a go this weekend, Thank you for sharing the info.

Cheers
NimROD

I've just finished building a hypercube evolution (HEVO) 3D printer, I still have some tuning to do but it should be ready to go soon. I have also been working on a v8 supercar chassis for the Holden and Ford but with all this body printing going on, I may have to make it suit the Nissan.
Curious as to what filament you are printing the bodies with and the print setting layer height and nozzle size etc

Hi All,

@WKM - I use the following:
Aururum PLA (Same company that sold me the WomBot Exilis)
Hot End 195-200 Deg C
Heated Bed (Glass) 60 Deg C
Speed 35
Flow 100-102%
Fan 100%
Z-Layers 0.05mm

I think I have the Nissan body somewhere ;)

Cheers

Hi Nimrod

That must take some time to print at that layer height, what post process do you use to smooth out the finish?
Ill take up your offer on the Nissan.

Regards
Wayne

Hi Wayne,
It does but you get a very nice print in the end, the ridges here are easily covered by primer, plus you get a nice interior to the model.

You can barely see any lines on the miniature, the space ship behind her was at 0.1mm

The taller one is 25mm and smaller 15mm high

No prob's about the Nissan, just give me a week as I have promised other models first.

Wow good effort
Was the car printed standing on its end or is that just the layer transition creating the lines across the body?
No need to work on the Nissan, I can repair myself send what you have.

Thanks Mate
Yes both cars were printed vertically, yep that's the layers showing, one coat of primer will cover it easily.
No prob's, about the Nissan, PM me your Email

cheers
NimROD
