72% printed but...

by Ivan Sentch 26. July 2013 12:48

72% printed but I've been preparing my house for sale so I've not had any time to assemble anything (so no new pics sorry)

The house is sold though (it was only on the market for 1 day before we got a pre-auction offer, after having spent weeks preparing it). New Zealand property market is really booming at the moment

But this does mean I've only got <2 months left before I have to move out so <2 months of printing at the rate I have been printing at so far, after that it'll be at a slower pace or on hold until the new place is built

Unfortunately title for the section (top right 1/4 of the image below) is looking like it won't be ready until March and another 6 months of building after that so if it does have to go on hold until I finish it's going to be a while

Also my hot end has blocked and in trying to clear it I've broken a bit of it so I need to wait for a new part to arrive before I can continue

Well, poo. Congrats on selling your house though!

Looking forward to future updates. I linked this page to Solidoodle on Facebook & their collective minds have blown!

They are watching this project as well. You may become a featured user!

Wow that was you was it thanks for that, they've pushed it out to their media contacts and a couple have already raised an article

I can say now it won't be going on hold, I've arranged something so I can resume printing / assembling while I’m in-between houses

Just a suggestion but a ton of people seem to want to support you, and since your in a bit of a jam right now with your printer down and time being consumed, have you considered crowd sourcing part of the project? providing the .stl files out into the wild and allowing people to print it  and ship to you?

you could do a special section of the car that's crowd sourced and allow everyone who print it to sign it or something like that, then post a page of all the people and their websites or whatever they wanted on it.

im not sure how expensive shipping would be but im sure there is people out there willing to ship on their dime, especially if you do it as a contribution type deal and even with the whole advertising part allowing people to put websites or brands on the piece, maybe you could even get some big names to help out.

There would obviously be qualitative issues with the different prints but im sure theres got to be a way to sort that out, maybe everyone needs to print out multiple parts or maybe each person can send in multiple and you can choose which ones make the cut

The print times should be increased exponentially since instead of a single serial method of printing part after part, you could have more of a parallel process since you could have say 1000 people printing 250-500 different parts, at the same time, pending shipping of course.

Great job love the idea of using a 3D printer. I have seen your 250GTO kit around before and as a long time Datsun Z owner and club member I recognized the donor car ;)

Hope you don't mind I have shared a link to your blog/site on theroaringseason.com including a quote from your body post - about why you ended up using the 3D printer - outstanding idea. If you do mind I will delete the post.

Regards
Mike - Auckland.

Just saw your project via this news article: www.news.com.au/.../story-e6frfro0-1226689482416

Just adding my voice to the other keen followers watching your exciting project come together. I'm an avid car nut, and find your project truly fascinating.

I like Chris's comment/idea about crowdsourcing parts, that truly could be amazing. I'm sure there's tonnes of car nut's with the right type of 3D printer out there who'd love to support you.

Keep going!

Funny that I know Karl - and I am sure he would have told you about my long long time 260z 2 seater rebuild. I might take Karl up on his offer to pop over sometime (once arranged with you of cause) and see your project in the flesh.

Cheers

I am 13 and write the scripts for the school's plays, write stories and film mini documentaries. I want to become a creative writer for WWE (writing the storylines). I know I will have to work for other TV productions before joining the WWE corporate. How can I improve my creative writing skills so that I can be successful in my career?.

Son acciones nimias, pero que si no las realizas resultan incómodas en el resultado final, tales como activar el Media Player poner el Nero en español, y lo más importante, asegurarse de que el antivirus AVG tiene la base de datos actualizada y está en funcionamiento. Además de dedicarle todo el tiempo necesario a la reparación y a los consejos de uso, que un reparador conocedor de su profesión puede dar después de tantos a?os de experiencia. Sí es cierto que en el momento de la compra te resultarán un poco más económico los dos aparatos en uno, pero ten en cuenta que es bastante menos eficiente energéticamente hablando.
