Work in progress: 1:24 scale classic TAMIYA NISSAN KING CAB

Scratch build 3d model a TAMIYA NISSAN KING CAB using old 3d program and today completed almost 12 hours of 3d printing on my 3d printer using ABS filament.
The raw printed model is a bit rough on the surface due to cheap china ABS plastic filament that hardly melt properly but still fixable via lots of sand paper work to smoothen the surface. The 1:24 scale will fit on WL-TOYS A212 chassis which almost have similar width layout like the replica TAMIYA Nissan King Cab. Will keep you guys updated soon. I still need to remodel a 3D meshes of replica wheels to match the replica appearance.

yup ninjaflex.

they took 20-40 hours to create. the problem is figuring out the best slicer settings to make it work well.

so far i got close to making a decent monster truck tire but due to the cost of materials and time i put the project on hold, i went through 3 spools of ninjaflex and got closer to making it right.

on the truggy and the F1 those are 3d printed ninjaflex tires as well. those took between 5 and 12 hours a tire. those worked fine almost in the first shot because the bridging and tires are much smaller. with the monster truck tires they are so large that a 'moire pattern' started to emerge which cause Filament Bunching and balls to form which ruined the tire as it went further into the print.

For the Truggy it was my first run with ninjaflex and i ran 4 perimeters and like a 30% infill so they are hard.
for the F1 i went though revisions to make the tire softer, so i currently have 2 perimeters and a 9% honeycomb infill that is under-extruded on purpose to Simulate Sponge filler.

I eliminated the moire pattern issue with the last 2 MT tire prints but didn't get the top layer just right so i needed another shot at it.

last settings were 2 perimeters with the top layer at 4 layers bottom at 2 with a 6% 3d honeycomb fill under-extruded just slightly below normal due to the larger size it was a way to eliminate the 'moire pattern' issue.


Got busy with other projects.





When i finally get around to making the 4 MT tires (160 Hours of printing) then the only part not 3d printed besides hardware will be the camaro body i put on the open rc Truggy.

the Monster truck is a really nice simple design, runs well and i'm working on more projects for it, i put some small remix parts on thingiverse for it.

other projects i made a 2 different complete Oil shocks that were like Mugen and Tamiya clones, everything got lost when photobucket Crapped the bed.

Found the place you mentioned about the ninjaflex filament supplier (ninjatek.com). Wow! 20~40 hours like 2 days. I always ended up printing halfway unfinished after 8 hours due to overheating extruder and printing bed causing error and half to reprint the whole thing again, my 3d printer is PP3DP UP model. Btw hows the rubber tire held up on dirt tracks and tarmac? Does it worn out slowly like normal rubber? Btw nice 3d printed autobot model, is that on TPU filament..looks shiny.


Btw some progress on 3d printed TAMIYA NISSAN KING CAB kit for 1:24, finished sanding and also do some paint filling/patching on the surface, Next will do another paper sanding again to smoothen the paint before putting another layer of paint for final touchup. Hopefully completed by this Thursday along with replica 3d printed wheelsets.

yup that is them, that TPU is the current best on the market. Makergeeks sells something like it and it is Garbage compared to ninjaflex.

so far wears like you expect shore 80A rubber to wear on pavement. tires have been decent offroad, nothing is going to be as good as normal r/c tire. however you can also make a mould of the tire you want and pour RTV and make your own tires just as good. hopefully as the years go by better TPU will come on the market. ninjaflex is too stiff to make a really good tire that sticks but it works well.

longest i did was 78 hours on a print.

bed errors are usually because the cooling fan is too high causing a thermal runaway to trip. if you can't run the fan then lower the extruder temps.

errors on the extruder side are more difficult as the cooling might not be keeping up. or issues with the type of heat break.

there were bugs with older firmware also causing thermal shutdowns.


the autobot model is hatchbox PLA.

Ordered the TPU but more likely for short run on the 3d printed tires and for showcases.



Completed! TAMIYA NISSAN KING CAB.
After weeks of hard work the 3d printed 1:24 scale vintage 1989 TAMIYA NISSAN KING CAB kit completed. Today completed touch up some minor paint works and stickers. 3D printing file for this kit including actual replica TAMIYA KING CAB wheels (not shown) will be available available for download at my website next week.

3d print project replica 1984 TAMIYA GRASSHOPPER
Here's my 5th replica TAMIYA project for 1:24 scale: The GRASSHOPPER. It took me about less than 24 hours to 3d model from scratch via Z-modeler. The kit designed for SUBOTECH 4WD platform but unlike the previous 3d print project i tricked out the front wheels to match the 2WD looks on 4WD drivetrains platform. So today i've completed the 3d model works an in another 24 hours later will start to do some 3d printing works. Hopefully i have enough spare ABS filament material to complete the printing since most already wasted on NISSAN KING CAB. Will keep you guys updated.

Thanks st_dragn_wagen, my ultimate dream was to build a classic TAMIYA SUBARU MUDBLASTER monster truck but still looking for the right platform to mount the conversion kit.


Oh btw for the GRASSHOPPER you can download the 3d print file now.

i started with your King Cab model and basically rebuilt it from the ground up so i could do this.









minus the tires that is a fully 3d printed monster truck based off the URSA Bear.

.2 layer height, No rafts, no supports. just the details are hand painted. the green is the filament color Hatchbox PLA.
