Default 3D Printed D10T Build

Inspired by RCP's cool Bruder conversions.

Going for this in 1:14.

Love the detail. Are you modeling all this or scanning?

Either way nice work!

What size link pins are you using. I never could find proprietary pins. Had to have them made.

Thx, Izzy. I bought 3/16" dia by 1.5" usable length off ebay. Was the best price for 100 at a buck each. Designing everything in cad. I wish i had a scanner that could scan something this small accurately...But then it may be just as much work and time to redesign the components for my needs and fix the model after scanned? Who knows, not familiar with scanners yet, I just CAD whatever i need.

Thanks man, I did originally print the pins for the track and they worked fine but figured one of the most wearable parts should be metal. I may reproduce more parts out of metal as i need them and they wear, but this a great way to prototype a model. Wish I had Steve's machining abilities.

Search, I wrote a thread all about my stuff somewhere here.


Someone asked me about the strength of the model when its done so i grabbed a scrap piece from this build (lower chassis part) and took these pics to share.



Im 200lbs, and am balancing myself with my hand on the counter while my wife took this shot.



These parts made of ABS can be very sturdy, as you can see ( this part is not even constructed with the most dense filling that can be utilized). Of course not as resistant to wear as metal but like i mentioned i will use metal in certain areas, and would prefer to build the whole thing out of steel, but dont have the energy for that and wanted to do a full 3D printed build of some sort and this happened to be it. Atleast this way I can cut the build time in half and do something not yet done.. Anyone seen a 3D printed Dozer yet?

You can check this scanner out, http://structure.io/ I have to get a new phone before I can try it out.
Cheers, Neil.

Neil, Thanks for the link. I saw that a while ago. It was made just to be used on the Ipad I think. Id be interested in knowing how small of details it could grab.. I still think affordable laser scanners are a bit off, but becoming more consumer based due to 3D printing. Ill wait for one of those, but even still having to hollow out the model to be used mechanically would be more headache than its worth..Unless your modeling people and stationary things. Just my thoughts..

Incredible!

If you're in need of a product tester?

Jason,

it looks great. I can hardly wait for what's next. For those parts of my 3D printer would take longer.

Thank you Sir,


Got some of the body assembled. The platform which the cab sits on is a snap on deal with detents, and the center hood will be removable to access battery.










Have a few dimensions to go back and adjust and reprint on the motor housings, then should be ready to finish cutting the track roller shafts (24- 4mm) and assemble the undercarriage.

Nice work. I would put the head of the track pins facing out, looks better to me anyways. Also what is the cost of the material you are using for the printer, and any idea of a finished cost?
