Hi! A couple of months ago I made a post about my project - buildning a fully 3d printed 1/10 Koenigsegg Agera RS. Now it is finished, so I thought I would make another post ? The car is mostly made out of PLA plastic. The total weight of just the raw material is around 700g, wich equates to about 30$ in cost. Then you have paint, screws etc. In total it has definietly cost me less than 100$. It is designed by a very talented person I met on a 3d printer event here in Sweden, and is assembled just like the real car with the monocoque in the middle with all of the panels attached to it. There is even room to make it driveable, with battery, servos, motors and everything. The majority of the work has gone into the painting. 3d printed parts are quite rough, so many, many, many layers of spray filler was needed. And a lot of sanding. The paint job is then done with cheap rattle cans. The paint job could of course have been better with better equipment. Here is a picture of how panels could look directly from the printer: There are still things to be improved on. Some parts still have their 3d-printed look for example. But I think it looks pretty good already. I would love to hear what you think! ? If you want to see my whole build process in more detail, see this link (the designers forum): http://depronized.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=89
The Chevrolet Corvette Prototype (GM intern EX-52) 1952 began its life as a scatch on a paper napkin. Shortly was introduced the First American Sport Car in the Motorama show in 1953. The car is existing still today but the engine was changed by Mr. Zora Duntov to a V8 engine. So the car to see today is the very first Corvette V8 ! I modified a Corvette 1953 Revell kit back to prototype: on outside was not very much to do. More differences were in the engine compartment. Here I got help with two photos from GM Media Archive. Enjoy the pictures and any comments are welcome.
