  • 3d car printing-Area 71's cars are gorgeous

    Area 71 sent me a few samples of some recent cars and I'm really impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship.

    It's all about the quality of the CAD file, and the material/process. And with the right combinations they are light and raceable, comparable to Fly cars and Slot.It classics.
    They do take some work......but yes, 3DP is here if you want cars that will never get built, otherwise.

      Another great video Dave! Are you going to make a video of the building of one of the cars? Inquiring minds want to see...

      356?
      Yessssssss.......

        There are several 356 files available..... These are basic files, but now there are higher resolution files available.

          You should ask Kitmen about one of the 356's his daughter makes. Cast resin bodies - they are really sweet!

            Great video Dave. Even though they are a decent amount of work I am so happy with the performance and looks of the cars when completed that I am easily persuaded to build another.

            Shipping was the real problem for me, that is why I keep a bunch on the shelf now!
