Hi, I am a backer from the Kickstarter campaign and am interested to see how this performs scanning vehicles or vehicle components. I make 3D printed parts to modify 1/12 motorcycle or 1/24 car kits and diecasts and backed the project in the hope it would make the creation of parts a little easier if I can scan directly from the vehicle. I realise glossy surfaces will be an issue but so long as I can get a decent scan to use as a reference for the final mesh to print, I’ll be happy.
I also want to scan vehicle areas, among other things. First the interior in my van - it needs a center console. Let’s see if it just works with the distance - or if I have to remove the seats …
I’m curious how well it will work. At my job I know the professional solutions (GOM, etc.) that we use in the racing development center (at the world’s best sports car manufacturer). For the shiny areas (panes, chrome, etc.) you simply have to use this matting spray. This then simply evaporates, but it is also expensive.
@ Ächtungkraft: Cool - your things. Nice to see what you are doing with our old cars. I definitely have to order one of your t-shirts
me, I hope to be doing almost opposite. I want to scan parts of my daily driver pickup and turn that into 1/10 scale truck parts like the rooftop tent, offroad jack and maybe even the bed cap. If accuracy is there, I hope to be able to scan broken and hard to find parts for my 1/32 models to reprint. things like gear covers that are too complex for my current 3d modelling experience to create from scratch
Hi, I also intend to be able to scan a switch command for my motorbike, as the manufacturer does not sell only the small part, but requires to change a complete set (worth 450 Euros, for a switch button that probably costs less than 5 €, but I could not find it even as used part).
I have a 1981 DeLorean and I’m converting it to an Electric Vehicle. The plan is to 3d scan the engine bay and other components of the DeLorean, along with the new electric motor and batteries, and then move them around in CAD and design mounting brackets and enclosures and things.
I see a lot of feedback here thinking that scanning will make designing precision or mating parts easier. While that can be the case I don’t expect the software Revopoint makes to autofit CAD Surfaces or other required information often needed to utilize scan data in the design process. I currently use DesignX for this from scan data of multiple source types to great success. If I can be of some help, please feel free to reach out firstname.lastname@example.org
there different brands - my colleague prefer “attblime”
the spray is self sublimation - that means, there is no remove needed.
there are different versions with different stay times 2-6h , 24h, permanent
i don’t know about abrasive - it’s makes like a powder dust on the surface, which gradually disapears. I don’t know about damaged surfaces after use. Maybe there are surface’s may have problems under chemical aspects. These sprays are made with cyclododecane. Thats smells not healthy - after scanning it’s recommended to put the parts under free air …
