Rick the detail is outstanding on those bodies. Does any residual texture sand easily? I'm not sure how your printing material compares to the resins we use.
Jeff depending on what resin I use they all sand a little different and how long I cure them with the UV light. Like I said once I get a body scaled to what ever chassis then I’ll print it at a different angle with thinner layers. And it will be almost good enough to prime maybe one coat and little sanding.Different angle and a thinner layer takes about twice as long to print. Say 3 hours to 6 or more. And if the print fails thats a lot of wasted time. I want to make castings of the good prints ? I’m going to mount some 3D bodies and make some hits on the Top End shutdown and see if they survive ? The resin is UV cured and it’s going to take the place of a lot of body filler on customizing bodies. I’ve been playing around by applying the resin with a paint brush then curing it with a UV flashlight. It’s really easy to work with in 10 seconds and it’s ready for another coat, sanding or primer. And it’s good for joining parts. All still learning and experimenting. I’ll post some more pictures of other bodies and how the resin works on customizing.

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to 3D printing. But I do know that anything CG usually comes with a steep learning curve. Sounds like you're getting it all worked out. I'm excited to see what the end result will be so keep us updated please. You've always got the cool toys! :D
