    Awesome 3D Printed Snap Tite SDF-1 1:1200 scale

    Wow big print , I like ABS much smaller prints that you "glue " together .

    MΔ - VF-9

    Great work - I would suggest work a parametric model program to make changes a bit easier . I have done some stuff on FreeCAD not too bad for a free parametric model software , once you get the hang off it quite easy to model and edit .

    My fanarts

    Nicely done
  6. Very cool models Just remember to make plan for sanding as the end product is a bit rough and will need to be sanded down .Is the models thin walled or solid ? What scale do you intend to use for print ?

    Maybe you can print a version of arm - I still have CAD version of that arm some where ...

    Hi 3D- Brainx Nothing that fancy , they are CAD points , like lines and surfaces , they are place holders ( ref points ) I reuse while working or measure from .These are pics from Rhino3D , everything except for pilot is surface model ( CAD), not polygons. Once I have modeled it all , I will convert to polygons then export to Cinema4D or Blender.

    Toy Manufacturing

    The whole process is based around the mold - how good it is and the process around it . Maybe slightly off center to this topic - Arcadia and Other companies uses old established methods of production that has not changed in many years same process , same waste and same issues . We , us the customers pay for all the processes used even hidden ones - R&D , mold design and even the guy that removes the waste is factored in by a "bean" counter ( financial ). They would not start a project if there was any indication of marginal profit , we still pay for injection molding machine , even if it is paid for because it then becomes cheap profit . What would be interesting would be to look at the old versus something like 3Dprint , manufacturing on demand ... That is future where small companies will manufacture on demand. Any just my thought.

    Old YF-19 model

    Will think about it - I have a old Rapman 3.2 3D printer , but real world pressure has been bad last year so only did a tests . Maybe after Sep 2017 when most my real world projects finish . What printer do you use and what scale are you thinking off . I will need to tinker with this model of course
