am i the only one having trouble to import it in my slic3r ?

I run everything through Cura for printing. what issues are you having with Slic3r? do you need to run the files through a repair before importing or some other error?

The Side panel need to be repair before importing it to slic3r (for me)

everything is good now i just made it using makeprintable.com very easy !

hope ill be posting the result soon !

Hope this works better. Didn't have a lot of time when I did the bed.

printing this now. I didn't have any issues printing the original 1pc bed after running it thru netfab, but it's very fragile. Even after reinforcing it with resin, I still broke 3 of them. Hopefully this holds up better. I'll keep you posted.

I couldn't get the original to print without cracking or separating. This variant is substantially stronger. But doesn't seem to curve in enough to match the bottom of the WPL cab body. And it requires a little DiY to mount it as is because I haven't finished a printable bed, and it doesn't fit around the truggy rear end the C14 comes with. But it should be Hella durable!

just a thought, but if you cut a groove on the inside of the bedsides that matched the stock angles of the edges of the flatbed, it could slip over the stock flatbed, and also be used as a mount, and negate the need for a bed floor for the fist 3/4 of the bed. You could then add a "lip" on the tailgate to fill in the gap in the bed floor, which would make it pretty much bolt on. You would just have to thin out a channel in your bedsides to match the edges of the stock flatbed/rollbar/rollbar mount. I don't have the skills to do that, nor the time, to be honest.

The curve to match the cab is a different story. I printed mine out of ABS and did an abs vapor bath trying to get it more solid, and at the same time while it was soft I hotglued the bed to the truck while it dried/hardened in the shape to match the cab. not sure it that will work with your bed, but since it's much thicker I may just sand/fill till it fits.

I did add files for the bed in finally.

printing that now, all out of abs so i can just glue it all together with acetone. Will post pics when it's in one piece. I can tell already that this is WAY stronger than the original

Absolutely! I saw on a forum they plan to release a version of the C-14 with a normal flatbed rear in the near future, so I wont likely be adding many, if any changes to this model in the future, seeing how the official version looks all around better than a printed alternative (more detail inside the bed area, the fenders are shaped correctly, and one picture even showed a topper on it as well!)

This will work in the meantime at least! with only a little bit of DIY to get it juuuust right for current trucks out there!

yeah, the c-24 should be out soon, which also has partially metal axles, and from what I have seen, at least the diff pinion is metal. This is a great substitute until that's released though. since I used ABS, I may carefully heat the bedsides at the cab and pull them in some to get a closer matching curve, and print a front bed wall. Good work man, this piece is 1000% stronger. This one was done at a pretty ugly resolution just to see how well it fit, so i'm going to a cleaner/finer one for the final piece.
