  1. Hey, everyone!, I have a serious inquiry here. For those of you who have followed me before, you will know my opinion of 3D printed parts is NOT favorable. I think the technology will get there for us, but the stuff that's out there now, I wouldn't use on ANY of my builds. However, a certain company PM'd me, and showed me his work....his work is AMAZING!!!!!, and i'm in talks with him about building one of his kits. He asked me what i'd like in a kit, and I gave him four of my interests; 1) Lotus Excige, 2) Hennessey Venom, 3) a large scale Pagani Huayra, and 4) a Lotus Esprit GT3 V8, which he said he will look into for a limited run. My question is; how many of you would be interested in an Esprit GT3 V8? Here is some of his work:

  3. Hey guys, this is a long time project started about over a year ago. I thought it would be cool to do a car chasing scene from the TV-series "The A-Team". That´s why it leans to the passengers side. The car should came out of a corner in a little diorama I want to build for both cars too. So let´s get started... The only things of the original AMT Joker Goon Car I use are the body parts and the dashboard. Chassis and Interior pan come from the 71 AMT Dodge Charger. Tires are from the 72 Chevy Fleetside. The grill and headlight bezels are 3d printed parts as well as the taillights, the door panels and the wheels. Decals are selfmade and the interior became a little washing already. The engine bay I cutted out of the charger and glued it to the Monacos body. After posting this at another forum a guy told me that I´ve choosen the incorrect color. So next to come is to strip the paint from the body and repaint it. BTW the wheels color is the one the body will become later too. Also the turning of the front wheels isn´t correct so I have to this again too. But I don´t want to cry because it´s learning by doing... The bumpers chrome I stripped off and redone it with a rattle can. The bumper guards are made out of the inner part of a bicycle tire. Now I let speek the pics...

  4. I know we've beat this topic to death, but I'm really intrigued. I subscribe to Computerworld at work and this came up today. Just amazing stuff in a seemingly short amount of time! http://www.computerworld.com/slideshow/detail/121544/18-supercool-objects-made-with-3D-printers?source=CTWNLE_nlt_dailyam_2013-09-27#slide1
  5. So this definitely seems to be an up and coming technology useful to modelers. I know there are a few out there who are using this technology to prototype parts for resin casting. I've been playing with the 3d design program Sketchup, and am getting the hang of it. have managed to draw up some tires, and some misc parts. I was hoping perhaps some who have made that next step might be willing to start a discussion here to help people like me make that next step to actually getting a part printed. I am aware of Shapeways, but believe there are others out there who will take on print work from a 3d drawing. Any and all tips, pitfalls, encouragement or even well meaning discouragement welcome. A start to finish description of your experience getting a part printed would be very welcome. Thanks
