Description

This is a 3D model created on Solidworks, by surface and solid manipulation.

The idea of this model was for me to practice on the surface manipulation on Solidworks, but I ended up printing a scale model of the design.

Hi to the ones who have printed this succesfully:

How did you manage to print the wheel studs as they start at the outside end in the "middle of the air" ?????
I used makerware and a rep 2 to try to print this, and it was trying to print the car body in midair (one layer above the build platform, except for a small point at the front and back). I guess I need to manipulate the model? What did I do wrong?
@Boluuudo, I don't mean that it's bad at higher layer heights. I mainly mean that the very flat incline of the hood shows off low-layer calibration really really well.

I'll be trying this @ 0.09mm layer height as soon as my filament comes in.

Instructions

On the zip file you will get 3 STL archives. The main body has 4 pins to hold the wheels. You'll need to print a pair of back and front wheels, to get the 4 wheels of the model.

Back wheels are bigger than the front ones, therefore I make'em on separate files.

The first model I printed was on a Fortus 250mc, with a resolution of 0.007in.

By petition, I'm adding Solidworks and STEP files, if anyone wants to play around with the model.

Have fun, and enjoy... =)

Awesome model! I've got solidworks too and I'd love to modify it so its more printable on a hobby level printer (make the pins separate pieces).

Can you upload the solidworks source files? STLs are horrible to edit.

Typically, for maximum helpfulness, I upload 3 files:
A Source file (for those that have my program - solidworks in this case)
A Portable file (STEP or IGES, for those that don't have solidworks but want to edit it more easily
than an STL)
and an STL file, for those that just want to print it.

If you look at some of the stuff I've uploaded, and check how many times each file has been downloaded, you'll see that interest in each of the 3 file types is pretty even:

So people definite
ly appreciate the options!

Thanks! :)
Yeah... I didn't think about hobby level printers, I just wanted to print it right away XD

I'll upload SLDPRT and IGES files by monday... Thanks for the tip =)
This is an awesome print to do at really low layer heights.
It can be printed on higher layer heights by rotating the model, making it be printed from to side to side, instead of bottom to top.

The problem is that it requires a lot of support material.

I was able to sort of print it by slicing it in half down the middle vertically and then printing the sides so the wheel studs were pointed up. The only problem is the wheel studs came out way too small to be of any use.

I'm hoping someone will make a derivative with larger wheel studs.
