@ A&D

Very cool. What material are these parts going to be made of?

Hi Ben,

I was thinking about this process on the way home from work this evening and ...

How about printing onto peel-and-stick laser printer label stock?

Then you could cut out, peel and stick the doors and other detail parts onto a plain shell.

Take that idea a step further and mass produce the stick-on details with die cutting...

Something like these... http://www.datagraphicsinc.com/laser-die-cut-prototypes.html
Some of the more common materials for laser die cut prototypes are:
- Vinyl laminates
- Acrylic
- Polypropylene
- Paper
- PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate)
- Styrene
- Magnetic
- Formica
- Polycarbonate (plastic)
- Fabric
- Mylar
- Wood
- Engraving stocks

That's an interesting idea. Especially since there are various materials available. I like it.

for the first test, I produce across shapeways off "White, Strong & Flexible": http://www.shapeways.com/model/162601/a_d_sd40_2_test.html?gid=mg

Later for the series, I will take it with white metal/babbitt - the same material as my pulpwood - the trucks off brass (about cnc machine)!

:thumbup: I'm taking the same route - a prototype chassis from Shapeways and once the details are worked out, I'll see about getting it done out of brass or aluminum.
