  1. 3D printing

    The supports are needed to ensure the correctness of the print. Without them, there would only be a glob of cured resin in the vat. It's slanted that much because the print wouldn't have fit on the build platform. Ideally, you want to use as few supports as possible. To sum up. The supports are removed and discarded.

    He did't print it.
  3. 3D printing

    If you want to know about desktop 3d printing and printers, ask someone who's been there, done that. Here are my current printers that I have purchased over the last 4 months. I built my first printer in 2013. Downloaded Blender, an excellent software and started the process. December 26, 2014 saw a post I made on this forum using a uv resin curing dlp printer that I made. November 2017, I bought my first led lcd printer. A Wanhoo D7 that cost me $620. The large one below came this last September and was $1275. The smaller one came last week and was $799. Through all these years and these printers, I had made posts on this forum showing what could be done with them. The Dodge 1954-55 241-270 hemin in my avatar is one of my current projects. Larger Stl. file pictures are below.
  4. Fat Finger Fix

    Great idea. Just what I needed for mirrors, door handles, etc. Now I need to take that bad inner tube off my bike.
  5. Wheel Arch Moldings

    I'm with you Niko. I dread foiling. I was just getting ready to foil the side trim on my 64 Cutlass when Steve posted this. I have used tape under the foil, now I'll use it over so that I can better see what I am doing. Great tip Steve.

  9. Mopar A series 318 "Poly" V8

    Your son's car was a Dodge hemi based poly and the A block is the 318 and an entirely different engine. Hemi based poly Early A engine 1965 318 A engine
  10. Mopar A series 318 "Poly" V8

    The early A block engines valve covers had 3 bolts. If I remember correctly, Chrysler A engines went to 2 bolt valve covers in 1959 as they saw no need for the center bolt. My 58 engine has 3 bolts and duel Carter wcfb carbs and my 59 engine has 2 bolts and 1 afb carb.
  11. Iso Grifo kits.

    This one should not be real complected. Turbosquid is the last resort for files. They are the middle man"s middle man. Expensive.
  12. Desktop Manufacturing, Part 1: 3D Printing

    You get the best background images you can find, line them up in sync in as many sides as possible: right side, back, front and if your lucky, the top. Like this. Then start outlining and filling in referencing as many good references as you can find.
  13. Desktop Manufacturing, Part 1: 3D Printing

    The internet is already loaded with hundreds of 3d cad car files . Some are free This 37 Buick 4 door sedan has been exploded to show how the cars are created in pieces like the real one's. Makes it easy to put together parts for printing. Then of coarse, there are the ones that cost money. My F&F Delehaye is one of those. These are others in my collection. I got in on a Black Friday sale last month and paid $108.09 for these 3. In order- 57 DeSoto Adventurer, 40 LaSalle convertible coupe and 39 Olds 80 Convertible. Regular price-$75 each. 3.
