  1. Hi All Here's the latest photos of the build so far,with more to come
  2. Hi All Here's some more parts added to the print. The photos show the 5th wheel drawn up in Autocad 123D and the printed part. You may notice the oil/grease groves this is the sort of detail you can draw into the print.
  3. Hi Guy PM sent Paul
  4. Hi All Ive drawn the radiator tail lights and printed them out and attached them the chassis,here's the photos
  5. Hi Rich According to the Volvo drawings i have it says FH12 on it ? Im just drawing up the radiator and tail lights and then can start the engine/gearbox and drive prop shaft and join up to back axle Will post some more photos later. Paul
  6. Hi All Here's an update and further progress on the 3D Print build. Ive corrected the track rod on the steering (thanks to rich ellis for pointing it out). The front steering is correct now,managed to drawup the front cowl,bumper and grill at the front and put the steps in as well. The supports to the rear fenders or mudguards and made the mudflaps as well. Well here's the photos
  7. Hi All Just to clear up something 3d printers can print as many parts as you wish not one at a time. Its also cheaper,no masters to make or moulds to make. The drawings are stored in memory,or usb memory sticks You only draw it once,save it, convert it to a STL file and then Slicer program's slice it up ready for 3d printer My 3d printer then can make several parts in one go ,all the same and quality. If you need to modify the part you alter the drawing then do as above. Its called "Rapid Prototyping" it only takes a few mintues to do. A modelling friend of mine takes 3-4 months of scratchbuilding to make his truck,i have taken 6 hours including drawings and printing to do mine Gentlemen and Ladies it will change the face of modelling. Paul
  8. Hi All Here's some photos of the build. Ive drawn up the following,Fuel tank,2 Air Tanks,track rod ends and shaft,and both side panels and 3D Printed them Well here's the photos
