3D Printed accessories

Postby Bear » Thu Nov 17, 2016 10:13 pm

I've been after a 3D printer for ages, so slowly been learning 3D CAD/modelling in little spare time I have. Then 2 weeks ago I took the plunge and bought myself a 3D printer.

So here is my first truck/construction 3D printed model

Excuse the colour the filament which came with the printer was blue.

Next I'm printing some oil drums 1/16 and 1/14 scale. Pictures to follow.

If any interest I might start selling these models (using the correct colour filament)

Some update

Been playing around with different brands and colours of filament and it makes a big difference. So I’ve now found a good red filament (more red/orange) which is ideal for some of the accessories like the road and pedestrian barriers.

Currently testing white & black filament which probably be better for general items as colours are neutral to paint over if wanted.

Very nice and original. Looks just like the real thing.

Have you thought of model drivers and passengers ?

Cheers

Very impressive! my pal showed me a snake that had been 3D printed all of the joints are like little hinges but its in one piece even the snakes tongue goes in and out. Technology hey. I'm sure that you could make items for the loads on trucks these things are amazing. The guy who made the snake also 3D printed a small engine with pistons that went up and down driven by a small electric motor brilliant.
Keep up the good work,
Cheers,
Pete.
