What Did You Print Today?

A few months back, I did a CAD model for a bodyshell for the Hirobo 44B Hilux....

I believe the 210 mm wheelbase makes room to use the body on M chassis with some axles extensions for larger width...

I still need to review the roll bar, especially the fog lights part as I believe they are out of dimensions (they should be bigger, at least, and maybe mobile to avoid breaking them too easily). Further on the bodyshell itself, there was some missing details...

And I believe I already mentioned in the past that I tried to create a mold in CAD...

I also added some details...

And I finally got a part printed for experimentation...

I got the mold handed few months back to my friend at Loisirs Creations RC for the experimentation...

Saturday, I met him, and he handed me some nice stuff...

Yes! It is a bodyshell... It's the first element out of the mold with a material that allows vacforming at low temperature. This will allow me to work out the accessory details and check the dimensions on a chassis... I think I have to rebuild my 44B Hilux soon...

In the meantime, I did some picture comparison with the original damaged bodyshell...

What do you think?
