Great looking model!

The MPAA started an anti-copying ad campaign that starts out "you wouldn't steal a car..." to which the public's answer has generally been "I would if I could download it!"

RepG errors out while slicing the body.

Print the Lancia Stratos Body with 4 extra shells and 10% infill at a .2 layer height. Carefully snap off and trim away the support structure.

Print Side Windows and Windshield with zero extra shells and zero infill at .2 layer height. Apply a thin layer of glue to the back and press on to the car body.

All other pieces will print well with 1 extra shell and 10% infill at .2 layer height.

Most pieces will snap together. If pieces are having trouble fitting, carefully trim with a hobby knife. Add a bit of glue to secure pieces that are loose.

This is really awesome! I have been working on a Lexus LFA. I designed some connector pins so that I could snap the wheels in but I sacrificed the awesome wheel pattern while trying to make it work. My next step was making wheels that roll nicely, more of a hub/axel assembly and then trying to split the wheels and tires into 2 separate parts, as well as removing the windows like you all did, to print them separately. I was curious, what 3D software did you all use for this? Any chance you all could point me in the direction of the original files(I use maya, would be looking for something with quads, less optimized geometry) thanks!

Worst case I can just work from the STLs but I thought I would ask.

Could you add the model for the body without the plate and struts already combined?

cyclone on Feb 14, 2013 said:

Could you post the source files? Or at least the source for the body? What software was used to produce this awesome model?

whats the best glue to use on PLA ??

yzorg on Feb 15, 2013 said:

Hot glue or any Plastics glue. dont take the ones with the really strong solvents in them.. cyanacrylate or toluol.. they can make your PLA brittle.

Hot glue is available in various colours... and can be formed multiple times when heated.

Very cool design, but will this be like the other car? I.e do the tiers turn?

Nice car, but I just thought of something: If Makerbot features its own models here on its own sight, isn't that like someone starting a beauty pageant and declaring herself the winner?

yzorg on Feb 14, 2013 said:

to me its childish, same as klicking "i like" on your own FB statuses...

7777773 on Feb 13, 2013 said:

Yeah, they do that... but then again, they upload awesome models that *should* be featured.

Ok, way too cool Love the car and the video

zheng3 on Feb 13, 2013 said:

This presents a problem, because the MPAA says I shouldn't download cars.

yzorg on Feb 15, 2013 said:

MPAA has nothing to say here.
I dont see any protectable motionpicture here... instead i see a car.
the designers of the car dont live anymore. So why not downloading?

Dogbert on Feb 15, 2013 said:

Am I missing something here? What sparked all this about the MPAA (besides the tag)?
There's a guy at my work with a mug that says "You Wouldn't Download a Coffee". Hehe.

7777773 on Feb 14, 2013 said:

I believe they were asking if you would not, would you? Several thousand people have downloaded this car in the past few hours, so the MPAA their answer.

Thingiverse says you shouldn't upload weapons too, but has that stopped you? I almost put my eye out with that penny catapult of yours!
