This is Schulich I solar car that I helped design as part of the University of Calgary Solar Car team that rayced in both the World Solar Challenge across 3000km of Australian outback and in the North American Solar Challenge across 4000km of the United States and Canada.

The total length of this model is 100mm, so it will fit inside the cupcake cnc machine. Doing so scaled the model perfectly down to 1:50 (original length was exactly 5m long).

Depending on the method of printing, you may want to use the entire car, or the separate top and bottom halfs.

Nice job! I was on the team for its first two years. How I'd love to see an STL of Soleon.
