    Default Unimog

    Hi...

    I've started to 3d model an Unimog.I know...I've already have one built but that's one of the reasons . I have a physical one to compare. The idea it's to make a cab easy to print and improve what I did wrong


    These screeshots are from earlier versions of the model. I've done the basic shape and now I'm splitting it in parts and add details









    I've printed a door, the roof and the grille. Only after the interior done, I can print more parts



    The door:











    Roof:





    Grille:






    The grille came out almost perfect. Only the Mercedes' star it's kind of bad



    Next part should be the hood

    Printed the cab's back instead of the hood



    Filament it's about to end soon so I can only print small parts

    more pieces of the puzzle:

    Test fit of the door



    left side



    why a complete side and only half of the other? Well, printed a right side door and today,to test the door, printed the wrong cab side

    Thanks!

    Yes, 3d printing is a awesome technology. I think scratchbuilding will never disappear but now we have a nice option to do parts, simple and complex...

    take for instance, this side vent(i believe it's for the cabin air filter on the real Unimogs),





    When I did the first cab, cut a frame with the shape, glued to the cab and they glued strips of an old credit card (free ABS!) to do the slats.



    In this one, design the part and then was a 10m print












    Ok, between design and print, maybe the 2 methods took the same time but now I have a file ready to print, perfect every time




    By the way, the cab looks like this now:
