Well I could teach myself to model but I’m honestly too busy. With what little free time I have, I really would like to restore my car instead of making parts for other people. As far as printing, the cheapest printer to do what I am doing now is $7-$10K. That is a lot of money for someone who has no 3D modeling skills.after reading all 17 pages, I dont understand why you haven't just bought a 3d printer. lol
I bought one on black friday for 50% off. I taught myself the modeling with fusion360.
You've got some great stuff going here
All good points. I sand the Vinyl also. The main reason why I don’t use ABS is because the melting point is lower, and the resolution is lower. I will be using it for the roundel gasket though.agreed on the print quality, but I find that there is some simple finish work when it comes to resolution. I bought my cheap printer to learn on, but I've coated a piece with fill primer, a quick hit with sandpaper and some paint over it will produce a glassy finish. Ive also used a heat gun on PLA to smooth it out in a few seconds.
There's no way I'd afford or be willing to invest in a SLS machine, I'll leave that to the pros. I like the idea of using my filament using to make castable parts
