About Project

Feel crazy for luxury cars but cannot afford one, like a Mercedes-Benz SUV, in your 20s? Then maybe you can 3D print a scale model and place it in your bedroom.

The scale model we made, using SLA 3D printing technology, has an industrial-level extremely fine surface, and can be used as a presentation model.

Indeed, 3D printing has been powering innovation across the automotive industry, from design to manufacturing and beyond. Leading automotive companies have been applied the technology to reshaping the prototyping process, customize auto parts, produce tooling and manufacturing aids, reduce place for spare parts, etc.

Challenge

The front bumper and the wheel hubs are relatively intricate, and require more patience and caution when manually clear the supporting structure and polish the surface.

The height of the logo, car name and other details should be larger than the layer thickness of the SLA 3D printer.

Tolerances are necessary for the assembly parts.

Solution

  • Step 1: Split the 3D model, add supporting structure, and 3D print the parts with SLA Generic Resin.
  • Step 2: Excess material removal, post-curing, sandblasting, and polishing.
  • Step 3: Painting with metallic paint, coating with UV-oil.
