Got a Travers Tool Co. catalogue the other day. They are selling a 3D printer by Afinia that is accurate to 0.15mm (.006 in.). Not sure if this is close enough for 1/25 scale but larger scale might do the trick with a little finishing work. The price seems within reason at $1599.00. You could probably spend more outfitting a mini machine shop!

Not cost-effective (at $50k) for the home-modeler unless you just won the lottery, but here's a machine developed specifically for making wax patterns. Perfect for prototyping directly to molds or tooling.

If you can do this http://bangshift.com...campaign=Buffer I'd say things are looking up. I saw a 3d printer in the Microsoft store last week for around $2000. :o

Takes away the notion that you can just print something out and be ready to go.  There was a lot of work put into that model.  A couple of the processes (of which I had no idea existed), were also extremely messy!

 

It's a very cool model, though.

I'm guessing here,but it seems that once you make one model,all the programs are there to make as many as you want.

This could be interesting in a few years if the little 3 pick up on this. They could probably save a lot on pre production and mold making. Things that really cost a lot.    We shall see.

I would love to get some 3D printed figures in 1/8, 1/24, 1/12...to go with my cars....the possibilities would be endless

You can actually get a scale model of yourself! The detail is unreal! http://www.thisiswhy...res-of-yourself

Yeah, but I don't think they do 1/24 scale ... yet.  And there is the small matter of the price tag

 (like $1700 worth of "small matter"  :o  )

So, what have you done with it model car wise? I have. over the last year. build a reprap prusa I3 printer. I have less than $600 into it and can do anything your makerbot can do. That's not the point. In order for this technology to move forward in our hobby, we need more people using it to make advancements than the gee golly wizz wow posts look what it can do we see here.

my66s55 I don't know what your problem is but coming on here saying my printer is better than yours is exactly why I don't come in here anymore. I bought my printer with everything in the pictures for under 500.00. Works great and I like it . I've been building models for 30 yerars if not more, and Pro mod outlaw 10.5 chassis's for over 12 years from scratch. I got the printer for not only improving my skills and parts pile with this thing but if I can help the progress of integrating these with our hobby that's what I want to do .I plan to make turbos, engine blocks, heads and small items with my makerbot.

He was just saying he bought the printer and liked it, No need to be an ignorant p r i c k about it.
