  2. Hum3d - Large Source of 3D Modelled Autos

    They are not scans. They take "blue prints" of the front, side, top and rear and use them. Then they obtain pictures of the subject that show other views. There is no he. It's a company and I'm not too sure that the files aren't free lanced. Go here to see one source of blue prints. https://getoutlines.com/car-blueprints?utm_source=cbinfo&utm_medium=cpm&utm_campaign=cbinfo&utm_content=bar . Hum3d want $50-$60 for the same prints.

  7. The latest in desk top 3d printing-explanation

    I created this thread as an education piece to keep those who are interested in desktop 3d printing abreast with current products. In doing so, I use terminology that may be foreign to some. The size of 1 micron is 1/1000 of a millimeter. There are 25.4 millimeters in 1 inch. A piece of copy paper for your printer is 9 microns thick. A 3d printed layer of 100 microns is about 11 sheets of compressed copy paper. A 20 micron 3d printer layer is just over 2 pages of copy paper. The photo below gives you an example of the difference of 4 difference 3d printed layers. Starting with the top one at 100 microns thick, the second 50 microns, the third 35 microns and the bottom is 20 microns. You can see the difference if you count the layer lines on the right hand section of the oil pan. These "steps" are what causes the non smooth surface of a 3d print. The lower the level, the smoother the angles surface. When you print at 20 micron layer height, you can't run your finger nail over the surface and and feel any ridges.

    The rear fenders were one of the few parts that were one layer and are easier to fix. You just high light it and create it 3d by extending the surface inward. The result is this: In the case of an already file that is 3d, you have to high light the inner face and make the part thicker:

    It's not that easy to explain but, I try my best. First of, it's like a model. It's assembled in pieces. This is the total car: here are some brake out shots:

    Let me enlighten you on Hum3d. I use them and the models are very good. At $75 a pop, their worth it to me. The 37 F & F Delehaye 135 I'm working on is from them. If you want a 3d printable file, it's $400. Since I am able to use a cad software, I can make the $75 file printable.

    .200 millimeters is 200 microns. 200 microns .01 inch.
