  • Porsche 917-10

    I played around with the 917-10 file that Vlad sent me. I changed the fins, rounded out the cockpit and added some dashboard detailing. Also added some panel lines. This will be a proxy entry, probably the 3D printed proxy. Plan is to make the entire car on my printer. I printed out wheels, and think the tenacoius resin can handle the stress of being a guide., so other then the motor and axles this car will be off my printer. I have printed out driver, seats and steering wheels. Just about time to put the printer on idle and get building some cars from all the pieces I have made.

    This body is a mix of 25% tenacious with my base Resin. Right off the printer with no post sanding yet. It has just been washed .

    What program did you manipulate the file with?

        Amazing. Sure enjoy reading everything you all are doing with 3D printing. I tip my hat to you all.

          MS Builder comes with Windows 10, so I used that. I had zero CAD experience so had no goto program that I was familiar with. It works, and I have no idea how good it is compared to other programs.

            I discovered 3D Builder a week or so ago, it does a great job of smoothing

              Excellent job Dan. I got a copy of that file but decided that for me, most of the fun is in the design work so I rustled up a set of 917/10 blueprints and dug up a copy of Fusion 360 and started working a version of the 002 chassis 917/10 up from scratch
              917/10plan01
              The side view of the #20 car isn't great (cockpit location wrong, rollbar too upright, motor too far back, rear panels incorrect shape...) but it gives an idea of the nose shape as the blueprints are for the later shovel nose turbo versions. No idea how it'll turn out but it will be fun to compare the models. How are you finding the motor fit - the rear deck on model is pretty low, I had to pancake the engine details to squeeze an FC-130/FK-180 height motor in.
              cheers

                I have zero CAD experience . I can carve a plug out of wood, but doing a car in a CAD program is above me. I know it would be a struggle in MS builder, but maybe some of these other programs are better suited for car design. I suppose at some point I might give it a try, but if someone is offering a free file for sharing that is the route I will choose to go.

                i was able to fit a 130 in the car with one of my sidewinder chassis I just designed. I did make up an engine detail piece and it fit in the opening

                Keep us posted on the progress of your effort.

                Cheers

                  Nice work, Dan. Looks good. Post the bits on the build thread for the proxy? That way we can see it come together.

                  Scott......lots of work. Hopefully you get a decent file at the end.

                    I'd like to see what the chassis for the 917-10 looks like. After reading this thread last night I downloaded 3D Builder for my Windows 10 computer and watched a intro video. So far all I've been able to do is make a hollowed out rectangle as the basis for a very simple chassis. I don't have a printer yet but it's probably not a bad idea to develop some comfort with creating some things in 3D software before taking the plunge. Like you, I'll happily make use of existing files, and share my own when they're worthwhile, but when I do get a 3D printer I want to be able to design and make my own simple stuff.

                    Anything you can share about 3D chassis will help me as I play around with the program.

                      In 3D Builder the subtract and split feature are your friends. . I posted a picture of a chassis in a thread about 3D chassis yesterday. This chassis was designed in 3D builder. It had about 12 revisions, until I was happy with it. When they get printed you discover weak points that need to be modified

                      https://www.hrwforum.com/filedata/fetch?photoid=72703

                      i built a file and called it slotcar building blocks. Components were made and saved. I,e I built a 130 type motor, and all the bearing blocks as pieces, so I’d didn’t have to redo them all the time. Subsequent models became faster to build as my library of chassis building blocks grew. I was able to copy and paste all the components into a new scene and just merge them together to complete a new chassis.

                      Cheers

                        I am getting close to having a completed car for the 3D proxy entry. Chassis work is complete, Wheels and inserts printed, along with engine details and a driver. I made my own silicone tires and that includes Barc Racing in raised letters. I have decided to make this a complete 3D project and the car will only be using a motor and gears from an outside source. Everything else is from my printer.

                        I have printed many chassis, so this might not be the exact chassis, but it will be identical except for the resin mixture used. I have experimented with mixing Base resin with Tenacious resin of varying concentrations for flexibility and strength. Truth is I have four of these in assembly stage

                        Car is in primer white but will be finished in an orange fantasy scheme.

                          Did resin shrinkage cause any grief?

                          WOW...that chassis is awesome!!!

                        Nice work, Dan! Looks quite interesting. Will be interesting to see/hear about how it runs.

                        Tire casting is an whole different adventure, so you have quite expanded your aspects of the hobby.
