  1. I acquired this from one of this forum's members (Thanks, Eric). He got it from a well known South African resin caster, but is not his work. Who made it is unknown. It was really third rate work and I spent a considerable amount of time smoothing out the body, reshaping the trunk and correcting other areas. I'm fairly satisfied with the results. I consider the Kellner coupe to be the most attractive of all the Royales. 




  2. Bernard,    My Maserati A6GCS from South America looks different, also. The panel lines are cleaner and narrower. Seats are different and the door line on the left side is different. I suspect what you got is a knock off.

    So they were skins. Good work on the Maserati.

    I design medical devices and often have to work with skins for the interface components. You are correct that they typically require a great deal of work to make printable.

    I have been 3D printing at work for 25+ years. Our first SLA cost 250K. Very impressed with the Photon printer so far. The slicing and support software somewhat less impressive. 

    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.

    Did you design the Maserati parts or download them?

    I just got my Anycubic Photon a couple weeks ago. I started small with some wheels.


    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.

    That looks great, especially for a printed body. That paint belies all the work that must have gone into it below the surface.

    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.
