Hi there I've moved this on to its own thread so I can keep it up to date as I add new bits. It all started when I was trying out new render packages for work I wanted something to try it on. So i drew up vincent, a snow speeder and a spinner. I've always loved the design. I do a lot of 3d printing for work in SLA SLS but when I decided I was going to make an actual model I thought I would see if I could do it all on my little PLA home printer. its a learning curve because you don't draw the same way and there a limit to the size a peace can be.

I alway like looking at peoples photos so this will mainly be picture of the peaces as they come out.

BRS 61.jpg its a bit like lego with PLA you have to pick bits out to print in different direction to get a good finish. Obviously this will be glued in to larger parts and filled before moulding. This model will end up in fast cast because PLA is not stable in the long term. and also handing things, like only printing half the wheel is so much easier. I'm also printing out the clear parts as place holder before I make vac patterns.

theres a long way to go, half way through printing it out but as you know thats only half the job. As PLA is unstable long term I will be moulding the peaces then sanding and filling . so it could be a kit but its early days yet and it might be too expensive to do a run. as for size, Huge its going in my stair well. it won't fit anywhere else :)
