Mods-- feel free to move this as I didn't know whether it belonged in resin & aftermarket or not. These pieces may or may not be offered for sale at some point, and Shapeways could sort of be construed as an aftermarket supplier, so I put it here.
Here are a couple of pieces I received from Shapeways today:
This is a 1/25 steering wheel for the 2011 & up Dodge Challenger and a 1/25 20" tire to fit some wheels I made for the same model. I am working on the AMT version of the car, so the steering wheel has a socket on the back to specifically fit the column from the kit.
These parts were printed in Frosted Ultra Detail (FUD) and I have made a round of sanding & primer on them. They need some more sanding & priming before they'll be ready for molding. Details came out pretty well, including the button clusters in the spokes of the steering wheel.
Tread pattern on the tire came out well:
The texture on the tire's sidewalls is a little more than I would want, but for the price (roughly 1/4 the price of some of the other printing services), it's decent. I have some raised white letter tire models I want to print next, and the details on the sidewall lettering should come through in the print.
