Printable Cb7 models?

I know that there have been a few threads about this, but just wondering if there has been any progress. 3d printers have become more affordable and im thinking about buying one soon. I have been messing around with 3d design app called sketchup. They have some cb7 models on there that could work.
Has anyone made an stl. file for it? Let me know guys.

I was thinking of commissioning one for a while. Something hot wheels size so you can customize them with wheels and parts. Never got around to talking to someone though. I think something 1/24th scale would also be a good product. It would be fun to see how people customize them.

Yes! I love the idea of customizing them. But the 1/24 scale is kinda big for printer I was thinking about. It only has a 4.7x4.7 inch bed. 1/24 scale is about 5 to 8 inches. I might just have to pay little more for the bigger bed. We'll see, I have a lot of time on my hands since I sprained my ankle pretty bad and can't work for another 3 weeks. So this project will keep me busy.

if you want to spend the time preparing the 3D model for printing, here are 3DS versions of the 9091 sedan and 9293 sedan: http://www.m1xe.com/3ds_cb7_models.rar

please keep us updated if you do end up printing one, this has been a wish of mine for many many years. in my opinion, 1/64 scale would be ideal - small enough to print quickly, and could theoretically be adjusted (or even manually carved by hand) to fit on top of an existing Hotwheels base/wheels...

I wonder how hard it would be to print wheels, body kits, etc... well, not how hard, but how good small scale parts would come out.

Thanks for those 3d models, they look pretty good. looks like they are already to scale. [IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
The ones I found are alot bigger but im sure I can resize them to scale. I think ill try 1/64 and 1/43 scale. The bigger they are the more detail, work and time it will take.
93 coup

Got the PLA filament in today,
[IMG][/IMG]
In the mean time did some editing on the coupe. added a lip and Honda symbol.



The 3d printer is a Creality Ender 3 printer with a 220/220/250 mm bed. So I should be able to print up to 7in big(1/24th scale).

Yeah buddy!! Looks good! If you do manage to get a full 1/24th scale, it would be really easy to find wheels and R/C kits for it. I actually have a set of Buddy Club P1's (16") in 1/24 scale, hoping to one day have a CB coupe model to stick them on... Maybe you could add a centering peg sticking out of the wheel well? A sort of plastic axle to have a place to mount wheels to?

Yea I'm going to a hobby shop tomorrow to buy some tires and rims to see how they work with the axles and what not. Printer is up and running, not that hard actually. Printing a test dog now. You can kinda see where I change the filament mid print.
[IMG][/IMG]

After that, first Cb test model print will begin. looks like it will take almost 8 hours to print. wish me luck

So this is my progress so far, after alot of trial and error. Mostly its trying to figure out the settings on the cura slicer program. I didnt want to make a solid mold, Im trying to make the shell body to fit the skyline 1/24th model i have. Later on I can figure out how to go about making an atcual mold to make a dicast model. Its still a working progress, Im currently trying a different setting to make the model surface solid

Thats awesome that someone else is trying out the same thing. Ive been waiting for years for someone to make one. I finally got tired of waiting and jump right in it. Not know anything about 3d printing a week ago, I think I made some progress.

1st try. Wasted a ton of material and time.
[IMG][/IMG]

2nd try. Was trying to figure out why it was printing the inside the body.
[IMG][/IMG]

3rd try. Got it to finally to print the outside, but no completly on the top surface.
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG[/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG[/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

So im currently working on my 4th print. should be done in about 8 hours from now.
