Just got a 3D printer, next a 3D scanner

Post by pb on Fri Nov 07, 2014 10:47 am

I have purchased a 3D printer since most of the parts I am going to need simply don't exist and I will have to make them. Also I am going to build a 3D scanner so I can image some of these parts where I can work with them within Autodesk Inventor so I may be able to fabricate some parts.

My first project was to address the drivetrain of the car where the rear axle hubs needed a special spacer between the axle hub and brake rotor. I was able to use the Tormac CNC milling machine to fabricate out of billet aluminum the spacers and installed them last night. It seems that no one has the setup I have on their Healey from what I can tell.

Currently working on interior parts and requests people have posted. I don't do this as a full time job so please be patient. If I can fabricate the part I will share the details and costs of the parts to make.

Thanks for everyone's support on the forum.

Awesome! I can only imagine how much fun I would have with one of those Very Happy How large a piece can you print? How large can you CNC? What type of printer is it?

Very exciting

The 3D printer is a buildable clone of the Makerbox Replicator 2. I can print in ABS, PLA, PVA, and flex materials. The CNC machine I have access to is a Tormach PCNC Mill machine.

Figured out the method of the 3D scanner using structured light versus laser. Working on the volume metrics this weekend.
