1904 Oldsmobile Curved Dash
Posted by aussiemuscle308 on Saturday, August 10, 2019 6:42 PM

This is a 3D printed model of a vintage Oldsmobile i found on Thingiverse. It's printed in PLA on my Finder 3D printer. I used metal rod to attach the lanterns and fenders. I used generic black gloss for the paint and hand painted the trim in gold and red. I found the steering was made without considering that it had a knuckle at each end, so won't go through the axle holes. i had to cut it in half to add it. I also found another Oldsmobile 3d file with an engine, so used the bottom half to show it underneath.

That came out real good! What scale is it? I think 3-D printing is going to be the future of our hobby.

diamxion
is 1/25 scale ?

https://www.myminifactory.com/object/3d-print-oldsmobile-curved-dash-7615

it's bigger, more like 1/18 scale due to bad math. i read the overall length, then printed the body to that length (it's not). The good thing about 3D printing, is you can make it any size you want. I just scale it in my slicer program (flashprint)

Attaching the lamps and fenders was done with metal rod that i heated and pressed through the plastic.

Nice work! A very cool model of the Oldsmobile. The printing turned out great.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
