    Default Finished this 3D printed Gaz66... now it's time for the owner to sand and paint it!!

    Hi everybody

    Here is my first ever completed rc project
    3 months before this project, i received a 3D printer as a birthday gift from my brother
    So when a friend told me that it would be fun if the body of his crawler was the gas66 cabin, i just can't resist to tell him "I can draw you one and print it for you, I just got a 3d printer"
    A lot of time and some badluck later, he finally received a full scale looking truck at 50% 3D printed!!!

    Now he need to sand and paint it... hehehe!!

    Here are the drawings i made for the conception, some parts are missing but mostly complete

    Now the printing begins
    The cab was my official project and it was hard to design from photos and one blue print style drawing
    There's some little differences between version and manufacturer, so the model is not accurate for one version
    This printed part has 5 parts: front noze, top noze, floor-fender-fixation, lower section of the 2 doors





    The door is in two parts, the main door and the window (with some support not removed)
    Every parts contains tab for a strong assembly



    The back is one piece with the corners



    And the final assembly: a total of 11 parts with less support as possible for around 60h of printing!
    That take some hours too for adjustement and gluing-soldering of the parts.



    Next the spare wheel rack and the fuel tank
    The rack itself is like a plastic model with 23 parts soldered together, plus a battery box and tool box
    I'm very proud of this thing

    Looks pretty good even without the sanding! I guess he was happy when you casually said yeah buddy I can design and print it for you :) That must have been a great learning curve! I am clueless about 3d printing though, but find it awesome how it allows to build virtually anything.

    i totally agree, i was a noob at printing, but what a pleasant way to learn
    i had one catastrophic fails in that project and it was only my fault when gluing the parts, not the printer

    when he see the truck, what a smile on his face and his words were "you are crazy" lol

    Default The bed

    The removable side panels
    The post were supposed to be made of brass tube with welded bracket but i print a prototype and they were strong enough!





    The bed had lots of stress from solvent used for gluing...








    i redesign it and reprint in PETG
