  1. How many unfinished projects do you have on your workbench?
  2. The Mangusta haunts me and the quicker I get it done, the better I can sleep.
  3. Thanks for the compliments! I'm now finished.
  4. Chrome decals were made using the Decalprofx system. It's a very "fiddly" and difficult system, but once mastered, can produce excellent chrome decals.
  5. I use Prusa SL1 for support generation. It's very simple to use. ChiTubox support generation is awful, but I use it for slicing and think it works alright, but I don't have any experience with other slicing programs.
  6. Both Maserati and Mangusta are files from the net. They are not printable , however, without a great deal of work to modify them to be printable. The Mangusta suspension, chassis, wheels, etc, was designed by me.
  7. It could, but I'm designing it to fit in my Anycubic Photon.
  8. Thanks! ....but you ain't seen nothin' yet.
  9. The body was fairly smooth to begin with, being high-poly ( many small flat planes make up the surface) and the resin printing method produces a smooth surface. Much better than, for instance, Shapeways, which is a fuzzy, nylon like material.

  12. It will not. However there will soon be two printers on the market that will: the Anycubic Mono X and the Elegoo Saturn. The Anycubic has a build volume of 192 X 120 X 245 mm (7 1/2 X 4 3/4 X 9 1/2") and the Elegoo's volume is 192 X 120 X 200 mm ( 7 1/2 X 4 3/4 X 8"). They should be released this month; I suggest you wait until the prices drop, rather than ordering immediately. My Photon started about $500, and I waited until it was $300, a year ago, now they are about $175. Another thing: the printer that made my body does a good job, there will always be some filling and sanding, but either
