    I have been working on pods and chassis for the builds as well as bucks for windscreens. My last body was a 910 Bergspyder.

    That 917 looks great....I have been wondering about that car. Whose file did you use, or did you make your own?

      Hi chappy, I brought the file at Cults3d it done by hora80 , I've printed a few of those and have been pretty good models but I have had two that won't work . I did a free version of a 910 then gutters it for the body I will post a picture of it when the 956 is finished .

          I'll have a look at that one , all the 904's I've found are full cars not just body's like the 910 I did.

          Yes, I cleaned out the 910, same thing on the 904. Have to open it up to make the shell.

          Yes i dropped the infill back to just enough to hold the shell ,it made it a little easier to clean out the inside most of the infill came out like string . All the time and pla in the bin is a bit of waste but if that's what I have to do so be it.lol.

          Strength-wise resin isn't equal to filament but it's already survived falling on a concrete floor from 1m. It feels about as flexible as an injection molded styrene body.
          ...I may even try resin printing my slotit type pod to test it's suitability for a motor and axle.

          Kevan, try using Siraya Tech's Blu or Blu Clear V2 resin. Its much more impact resistant than ABS like. And/or you can add in 5-10% Siraya Tenacious resin with the Blu or ABS like. It adds a bit more flex. Best part is if you wet sand it with up to 3000 grit, then clear coat it, it becomes transparent - almost like injection molded windscreens.

          Things have move on a lot since this was printed, the world changed, we lost friends to a virus, I lost my job, I had a few months to ponder my navel but instead chose to use that time learning more about 3D printing...now I have a better mono printer and do indeed use Blu clear and Tenacious and mix Fast/Tenacious together and printed dozens of bodyshells this year. Siraya Blu is GREAT resin but not as simple to use, I've used it neat and only use Tenacious in Fast (ABS-like). Some bodyshells are only available with the windows as part of the body file, I've always given them the swerve so I don't have to cut them out...I may change my mind.

        Kevan, that looks great! Nice to have an uncommon car.

          I did this one awhile ago , thought I would post it for a bit of a comparison to your resin print.

          Thanks to Nimrod for the file. Printed this last night. Came out ok but seems unnecessarily thin to me! I lost one of the mirrors but that was my fault. I printed it flat but may try doing 1 at an angle to get a better surface finish.

            The 904 looks like it printed pritty good ! I downloaded the file a week ago I've been waiting on some filament ,that arrived today so I'll be able to make a start on it.
            Where did you get the turn table file from , it looks like it will be fine for painting .

          This is printing now in CF-PETG, it's for an SCX Audi 90 GTO with a SlotIt sidewinder. I could print in Nylon but not sure it would be stiff enough, maybe I need to get a roll of CF-Nylon.

          To get the outer shape I put the chassis and car body on the pc screen and drew a bezier curve in Inkscape, saved that shape as a .svg file, imported it into Fusion 360, extruded the .svg file and used it as a biscuit cutter for a simple explanation.

            I realised after posting this that creating the base for the chassis this way would save at least an hours work so a good lesson learned for me.
            Once the svg profile is extruded it can easily be scaled...I'll be using this trick loads from now.

          Kevan, that's pretty cool. Looks like you need some modification around the guide flag mounting area though.......
          Love the concept.

            Guide mount works brilliantly, it's adjustable then when I'm happy with it's forward position it gets super glued in place. What work do you think it needs?

            Thought you were aiming for something like the old BSquare mounts. I mistakenly took the alignment ribs for stiffeners only and thought you were trying the square peg in round hole. My mistake.

            The 'alignment ribs' down the centre is for an old axle to act as a stiffener and inline pivot for the pod and the guide holder slides fore and aft to suit.

          Well I've been sticking to making simple things, like a guide toungue for my Scale Auto Pantera. The original broke several months ago. I just measured the dimensions and created a replacement using Tinkercad since it was so simple. It fit perfectly and the car is back on the track.

              I like the idea of a kit, that eliminates some problems but creates different ones. There isn't a perfect way and we all do it or own way.
              The Fulvia HF is one of my favourite classic rally cars and seen regularly on slot rally nights, next week is the next one.
