What scanner do you have? I picked up a Revopoint Range and have been learning how to get good scans with it. It is meant for bigger objects so it doesn't have the best resolution and cant scan parts smaller than your cellphone.
I want to eventually scan the whole 240 dash to make dash pods and other accessories.
The one thing I've noticed is that everybody who 3d prints parts to sell never do any post processing to make the parts look better.
I'm not the biggest fan of visible layer lines. I saw a video where a guy mixed acetone and bondo and used a airbrush to coat the whole part to be sanded and prepped for paint. You would never know it was a printed part.
what's wrong with what you did ?I was wondering if there was a more permanent, central way to store them? Ideally searchable.
I can upload them zipped up as attachments to a post for example. Where do they go?
I figured it was mm to inchesNothing really, I just thought there might be a better way. What's wrong with the scaling? My CAD software will be set up to use millimetre units, has that done an inverse Spinal Tap and translated badly into inches? The two holes at the top should be 160mm apart.
Decided it should probably have its own thread:I figured it was mm to inches
Good stuff keep it coming
Use electrical tapeHere's something I didn't know I needed until now. TPU printed Gauge feet. I don't have any to measure, but it seems like the little feet for gauges get lost or broken and they are a pain to get.
I'm also probably going to do some designs for my Microsquirt install, but it'll go really slow because I A: have to get it running again, and B: am very slow on the CAD software.
Im working on a MAF blank that can be drilled/tapped for various sensors and fittings
I am getting ready to microsquirt my 245 and wanted to keep it n/a to learn how to tune.
This allows you to use the stock intake tubing and air box while deleting the MAF.
I plan on drilling and tapping for my IAT sensor and might even design one to fit a GM Map sensor too.
It will be printed out of PA6-CF.
