Shapeways Eliminating Frosted Detail, Introducing Frosted Extreme Detail

05 April 2015 - 08:32 PM

Someone mentioned in another thread that Shapeways is introducing Frosted Extreme Detail. They are eliminating the Frosted Detail, keeping Frosted Ultra Detail and introducing the new Extreme Detail. Pricing will most likely be significantly higher, but it is reported that the Ultra Detail is 29 microns high, and the Extreme is only 16 microns high, as far as print lines go. This is a huge improvement.

 

I took this picture from the Shapeways forums. This is 1:48 scale and shows the difference between the frosted ultra and frosted extreme detail

 

 

 

You can see the biggest difference in the legs

Scale of Lenco Transmissions In Revell Drag Kits?

05 April 2015 - 05:07 PM

I have a Revell Pro Stock? Tony Foti Camaro. I just bought the TDR 3D printed 1/24 Lenco tranny. It is way smaller than the kit tranny. I am wondering if the kit transmission might be a bit on the larger side, or if it is pretty accurate? I'm worried the parts I bought might be too small and look funny. I don't want to chop up the kit pieces until I can confirm. 


TDR 3D Parts Pictures

this is the best I could I could do, it's hard to take pics of these parts. I edited the photos

 

These are all 1/24, except the Webers and stacks are 1/20

It will take some work to get these smoothed out and this stuff doesn't come cheap, but all in all I am pretty happy with that I got. I am definitely looking forward to the future of modelling.
