      Model Scale: 1/8 Rating:  Thanks: 0

      For you more traditional hot rodders out there, here are some test pieces in 1/16 scale for an Ardun converted flathead Ford with the early Hilborn fuel injection............and an adapter to run the GM Muncie 4 speed transmission........



      Some of these pieces are really too small, and should probably be combined with their adjacent parts, but they all came through the printer pretty well............the distributor cap just amazes me, even the openings for the wires are there.............

      More images here for those interested:

    That is sweet! And to think that just two years ago you would not get that level of detail even in 1:8 scale...a couple of years from now and we'll probably get "functional" carbs even smaller then 1:16!

    The intent here was to see how these pieces come through the print process in 1/16 scale, and they seem fine..........a while back I picked up one of the Minicraft 1/16 31 Ford Pick-ups, and so that is where this one is going.......if the interest is out there, I'll check with the other guys about adding it to the TDR catalog..........

    These pieces were done at Shapeways in their Frosted Ultra Detail material...........you might spend some time on their site and see if that info is there..........I believe it was done on an Objet printer..........the Objet website lists their printers, and as I remember, the cheapest, desktop unit, available from their distributors and resellers was like $20,000..........and the print material as well as the support material adds to that cost considerably.........

    Would be nice to have, though..........

  7. Dom,
    Make magazine just put out a special on 3D printers. You might try getting a copy see at makezine.com I got my copy at Barnes and Noble here in the US. Maybe a large newsagent in Belgium would have it. Have not had a chance to check out me copy yet so don't know if any they reviewed would work for modelling parts. Good luck
