MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Very nicely done. Your prints look clean and have good, sharp detail.
  2. Things are progressing nicely. I'currently working on the intake manifold for the 53 Eldorado. The 35 LaSalle is coming along nicely and should be done sometime this month. I did print out the body of the 58 Ford Sunliner convertible. The length fits perfect with the AMT 57 Fairlane 500 body. This leads me ti believe That I could make a trans kit for it. I'm going to show you what it looks like as well as a Cults printable body which is one of the reasons you need to be careful about Cults files. Here is the Hum3D file printed out. Note how it prints in fine detail. And then the Cults file which is a poor rendition of a printable file. Some pics are comparisons to my printed car. I purchased the new Phrozen 8k printer which I should have in late August. To give you an example' the xy um for the 4k printer I currently use is 50. the xy um for the new 8k printer is 28 um. That's almost a 50 % improvement. Take a look at these prints off a new Phrozen 8k I just purchased. Simply amazing. No more lines in the print.
  3. I printed 10 because sometimes a few don't come out right. Surprisingly, 9 came out decent. I see your in Canada. That means more for shipping. Let me check on the cost.
  4. I have a 49 Ford with that Caddy engine. Itook your measurements and tweaked it to fit it. Here's the results.
  5. I have never had to replace the LED on any of my 4 Phrozen printers. The biggest reason for needing to replace one is user error.
  6. Ok, so I have a usable print for you. The question for you now becomes, what engine are you wanting to use theses for. They are currently scaled to my 331 build. I may have the engine you're using in my stash. otherwise, I'll need the length and width of the block where it connects.
  7. Phrozen has just announced it's pre-sale for it's Mighty 8k printer. I just purchased a $200 discount for $50.00 that allows me to purchase the machine this Thursday + a vat, screen protector, fep sheet, + 2 1k bottles of 8k resin and gift for an additional $649.00 + free by ocean shipping. That's $699.00 out of pocket for a 10" lcd 8k screen with 28 um xy. That's better than a 4k 6" lcd. This means that you would only need 1 printer to print anything you need instead of 2. The big plus is that it's a Phrozen machine. As an example, I purchased the Phrozen Shuffle XL in September 2018. It's been It is a real workhorse. 2 yrs ago, I upgraded to 4k. The 8.9" lcd has printed all the bodies I asked it to, completely without flaws. It's xy is 50 um. Check out this machine at https://phrozen3d.com/. Visit any Phrozen Facebook page. You now have the ability to purchase 1 3d printer to do everything you need.
  8. One of the Members here requested a set of Cadillac valve covers. Since I'm creating a 53 Eldorodo, I drew up a set to hopefully accommodate him. I've worked on the water pump sporadically and this is engines present condition. My present focus has been on the building of the 35 LaSalle. I'm making great progress and will post pic;s soon.
  9. I' test printing . I will keep you informed.
  10. This is for my 53 Cadillac Eldorado 331 engine.
  11. Non of the above. If you want the best printer available at this size, it's this one. https://www.amazon.com/Phrozen-Sonic-Mighty-BUNDLE-Photopolymer/dp/B09824Y63L. All the others are cheap knock offs that cut features that effect the final result. Phrozen leads the market in this price range of 3d printers. The others are copy cats that cut features so they can lower the price while increasing their profit.
  12. That would be the first thing I would check,Jim. Good idea, but the printer ha has only has a z height of 130 mm. The file itself is, as is usually the case, has a lot of non quad faces. This makes it impossible to get a straight line for splitting. An ad on called Quad remesher does this. It only works on 5-6 cad softwares. This will create what's needed to do what Bill wants. And yea, it should be printed on an angle anyways. Flat would cause a lot of problems on the bottom of the body pane;s.
  13. Bill, Email me the body and I'll do it for you. It may have to be re-meshed and you don't have the add on to do it. Besides that, it'll only take me a couple of minutes.
  14. I have yet to make a tire. There are too many goods ones found with Google. Google 3d tire files.
