A few projects i have started or are in the works, since acquiring the printer ...............

The XM turned out really well, nice flowing lines

51157953104_e51c4d30cf_c.jpg

The mini i have printed out to near 24th scale, Slot-it HRS Chassis fits perfectly under it

51158286080_fcf9cc6d04_h.jpg

Also have a Resin printer which i'm starting to play with as well

51157179086_db38d257ab_h.jpg

Bought the XD elsewhere then i found the 3D file.

51158268660_00754f8280_c.jpg

Saw the Aston and just had to have it

51157946204_3e75fbb92d_z.jpg

Same with the Jag

51157937784_0e4e035906_c.jpg

RS200 with the flare kit was also a must, tweaked the print setup so it now fits the standard Scalextric chassis and interior

51156493982_8881b3f8a8_z.jpg

Tweaked the A9X as well so the standard Scaley interior and chassis fits it or use the Slot-it chassis as the body is a couple of mill wider

51157179296_8cb4a70e0a_h.jpg

Made the Phase 3 look like it should as well, a little wider

A lot of sanding + a few coats of spray putty + more sanding, first coat of undercoat and they are starting to take shape

They look great! Well done! Are the last ones (white) PLA or resin?

What program do you use to modify the body files?

Awesome Garza. Need the Capri to do Seton’s car, XD, Monaro to do a Jane car and XT all in resin. Will drop around one arvo to check the progress.

The ones above are PLA, the Blue Mini is resin.

The slicer program that comes with the printer works well.

I've done a close ratio using the dimensions of the 1-1 car to the Scaley version, the length is about the same as the 1-1 but the width is always narrower, with the the slicer program you can adjust the width without changing the length, the HQ is the right length but i've made it 60 mm wide, same with the HO, they both can take the Slot-it chassis.

@gazzathey look trick. I'm looking at getting a 3D printer but unsure of which way to go.

What printers have you got?

What's your preference PLA or resin  to print with?

 

Cheers

Looking good gazza, you don't do an FJ front end on the FX do you? I'd pay an arm and a leg to get one ..... or maybe not quite that much.

View of the extra width of the Phase 3

51159316468_8a6bdef940_b.jpg

Standard is 55 mm, i widened it another 5 mm to 60 mm, the HQ  is also 60 mm wide from outside wheel arch to outside wheel arch

Also in the process of printing some trackside accessories for my great nephew

Do you print your car bodies laying flat, (like in your photos) or angled on an incline with either the back or the nose in the air?

Most have been printed flat, the yellow mini was printed nose up, i've done a couple of early F1's from Vlad that turned out very well, just depends how good the supports are to keep the thing rigid while printing.

Great fun to play with, there is a lot of slot car stuff out there as well, and as i say "you never knew how much plastic crap you needed until you bought a 3d printer"

Bought a Pioneer Legends white kit and did a different paint job on it, hate turning up and having 20 of the same car on the track.

Got to thinking while i was building it if anything else would fit the chassis

Luckily the slicer program lets you adjust the dimensions of a object to anything you want to print

So here's a rough draft of a XD Falcon Legends

Oh, I dream of retirement- Preferably lotto induced!

That's the only way I have any chance of ever getting through my "to do" list! :P

I'm in the process of moving as well, but due to covid we can't get to where we want to to buy, but preparing to move still goes on, trouble is that i'm running out of room to store things, so a lot of my larger projects are scaled down or on hold, luckily the 3d printed projects don't take up that much room. :) 

Added a bit of colour and a bit of trimming, still very much a work in progress, but looking promising
