  • Ferrari 612 Can Am

    Here is a resin printed Can Am Ferrari 612 without decals. I will be running this in the other Can Am Proxy as it has a Aluminum plate chassis with sidewinder pod, running a 25 K motor.

    Nice work, Dan. That body file is a good one. How would you characterize it vs the 3DP chassis?

      I stuck a 25 K motor in a 3dp chassis, and I am happy with it. Seems to run as good as my brass and wire efforts . This combined with the fact they are easy to print makes them a handy supply. I have five sitting on my work bench. Trouble is they are an evolving project, as I come up with slight changes to improve upon them. Lots of fun.

      This Ferrari is project of mine. It too is a work in progress. I started with the 312 and have been tweaking it into a 612 .I have another one on the printer right now that flares out the back end more in line with the 612 Can Am.

        Yes, I thought the wheel arches looked more 312 than 612.
        You do know that there is a 612 file available? I believe it's a paid file.....

        And yes....3DP chassis design is an ever-evolving plan. Once you have the basic pieces, you can build whatever you want for whatever car you have.

          Yes you can get the 612 from a couple of places.

        The last couple of prints came out pretty good. Once I get them painted I will post pictures. I think I have it to the point of acceptance of a 612. The whole tweaking thing is kind of fun so am enjoying it.

        Good thing is if you look at the pictures of 612 cars, no two seem the same. Looks like they were modified continually race to race.

          Looking good Barc 1 ... Not too sure what it is about this car that it appeals to me so much, but I even prefer the zero wing versions like yours. Good job.

              My very first slot car was an Aurora Ferrari 612.... If I knew how to make a chassis/scratch build in 1/32, this would be one I would put on my list

                Yes it is off my resin Printer. I took a 312 file and have been modifying it into a 612. It is a work in progress. Just painted 2 more that are a better representation then this one and will post pictures soon

                  how much did the body weigh and what were the steps to paint it?

                    Body weighs in at 24 grams.

                    The print comes out of the resin vat. From there it goes into a bath of IPA to remove uncured resin from the model. After washing it is dried and this is when I remove all the support structure. From here it is cured under UV light for a few minutes. The body then gets a light wet sanding, I then spray paint with multiple layers of acrylic paint ..
