We made this as a present for a friend who has one.

Print it out and fall in love with this beautiful car.


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.

Can you upload the shell without the supports please? I want to print it with a dual support machine.

Thanks :)

I need to make this! It's an amazing model!!!
2 thing though...
1, How long does it take to make in high quality?
2, There should be a customiser version of this so that you can customise the license plate.

I agree, a customisable license plate would be awesome.

RepG errors out while slicing the body.

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?

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 ??

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?

Come on, that's not...holy crap it is Wheeljack! :-)

MAKE A ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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?

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

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

they do, but then again they should have a makerbotbatch or a imprinted logo on all their Objects... thats better advertisement.
and that way not overfilling the space of Featured objects and by the mass of added objects they drop the featuredness of other objects..

comparable to watch youtubevids with the 10best things or with with 1000best thing on one page.. if you see what i mean.

Another way could be ading a category:
"Featured non-Makerbot Objects" :) lol

^^^ Honey Boo Boo Child checking in.

Ok, way too cool Love the car and the video

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

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?

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.

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!"

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!

I'm just waiting for the day when I can print out a full-size stratos. :)
