Purdy! Axles look fabulous!! Now imagine milling one in aluminum. I bet the good doctor would give in and release his plans.

The taillights look quite similar to ones on on the mothership's Bowlus sitting in the Service Center on W. Pike St.

Canoestream, you nailed the tailights.

The CAD time to model it up is where it gets involved, especially when working the thumb and eye method as I did. I guess I might have to look into figuring out what it'll take to do more.

Thank You for the compliments!

That technology is amazing! I keep hearing more and more about it - glad to see someone finally put it to good use

That's awesome. I'm a Mech Designer/CAD Admin on Solid Edge and would love to do that, too but where I work they are very strict about only doing work related stuff on our 3D printer due to the high cost of the material. Can't wait till the cost of 3D printers drops to where everyone can have one like aregular printer. Someday, that's where they're headed.

Good work! Looks good!

With our 3D printer we have many self-designed models

Nice! I modeled up a 26U twin before they actually came out with it and I modeled a 19 twin concept for a friend. Here at work we have some extremely high end 3D printers but it would cost a fortune to print them here. Hopefully my CAD screen shot attachments show up here and you can see them. I used the Snipping Tool to capture them as jpg's. The CAD system is Solid Edge ST8.
