The print lines are nearly non-existant, nice work on both of them.

Cleaning them up should be a lot easier than the Nissan I did.

Do you have any pics from the side?

Hi fella's... I haven't had a look at getting into 3D printing yet, but it sure looks to be the way to go to get a model which is not available in any other way than scratch building it.

Can someone kindly tell me what's involved with getting the software for a model?... Has anyone generated this from a line drawing etc?

 

I have visions one day of finally building an EK sedan... as I have owned one for 48 years.... if anyone wants to give it a whirl, I'm quite prepared to do the filling and sanding involved then return the finished model for molding and casting... extending full owners rights to whoever does the printed model.

 

I am impressed with the work done in this thread... it certainly makes life a lot easier and more accurate than simply carving something out of clay.. 

 

frats,

Rosco

Cheers for the side pics.

Not sure about the 2 in the pic above but I do know that the Nissan was printed with the top half of the body completely solid.

Probably overkill but I do believe it was his first attempt at printing a body from file.

Those are looking good.  Is that some sort of matrix inside the bodies for structural support?

the "matrix" inside is called infill. stops the outside layers from dropping when printed

the mess next to the XD is the under side of the VK after i was digging the infill out.
