Genius for this! looked at the stl files and i'm amazed.
Giving this one a try in Translucent petg.
Will post back ;)

Greetings from Belgium

Would it be possible for you to make a version of tires with it not flying, but on the ground mode?


hola, me podrias explicar un poco como conseguistes decorar el vehiculo con las luces, que productos utilizastes, no encuentro nada similar

IKEA SÄRDAL LED lighting chain with 12 LEDs.

pero en ese modelo de luces no veo como hacer para que corran las luces por el frontal y los laterales como sale en tu video

Thanks autor. I am paint this great model now. After finishing i will public photos.
Two things i want to write about.

  1. It's a pity, that back exterior does not match the original exterior in second part of movie. Now it's the mix from 1 and 2 parts and some time improvization.
  2. Wires along the side of the body - this is one of the most uncomfortable elements. It's delicate and fragile element and it is difficulty to print good quality. I think, good solution is using real wires (copper and rubber). Remain clips on the body and pass wires through them. For this solutions need edit model and delete wires...

Thanks for the feedback. Feel free to modify the files and make a remix.

does someone have problemt to print out the biggest part underbody.

this one : underbody_1.gcode i have Creativity Ender 3 Pro and i have printet this 4 times. and it broaken every time, can someone help me, i need this part, its the last one before im finish

What do you mean with it breaks?

this is the badest what happends.

Looks like sh*t... :D

I need more information. The file is ok. Just downloaded it again and checked.

Looks like the printer was printing in air. Do you use Support for the overhangs? Did the print came loose? What slicer do you use? You may want to post a picture of the sliced model in the slicer.
Maybe your download went wrong? Have you tried to redownload the model?

i reyed to print to times more, its not working. I dont understand. all the other part for the car is OK and no problem, Just this one..

And it printing in the air. Oneside its ok but not the otherside. if you look at the picture. and you can se the printer bed, where its writen Ender, after that is movig and start printing. and nothing just much broaken Filment when its going back to the part its have made.

Need some help, its the onely thing i need to finish the car.

What slicer do you use? Seems like you dont have supports on? Can you show a picture of your sliced model. Mine looks like this.

Im using the program that follow the printer

Do you have supports on?

hi, i dont think so, im extremely new in this. So im not sure how i do it in this program, to make suport.

the last one i printed now, its make i small support befor its start to print, and the first pasr it going well, but suddenlig its start to print in the air 10cm away from the part it have made to make.

So i need help, heheheh

Im trying to print it again, and i have taken away the magnet mat on the printer, soo see what happend this time, if its not ok, im gonna send you a picture when its still on the printer.

Looks like you don't have supports on for this part. I recommend rotating the part to be vertical for printing if you're not going to use supports or don't know how to use your slicer settings.

Wow! Fantastic job on the lighting upgrade. I am curious about how you did the front and back animation. Did you use separate stripes and arduino boards for each one?

Hi. No it is all one board and one stripe. I just addressed every led separately.

hola, me encanta su diseño, me ha enamorado. voy a preparar todo para su impresion y su posterior montaje, pronto subire alguna foto, pero me surge unas dudas, como hace para que las luces tengan esas secuencia y el condensador de flujo parpadee y el resto se queden fijas? y las luces que recorren el chasis como las instalo?


congratulations on your work.

I wanted to ask you for interior_2_details_trans.
Where should I put the second object with the space-time convector ?

Thank you in advance


Those are the switches for interior_2_trans.stl.

Love it!! Can't wait to try it. You put a lot of work into this. I'll post a pic when I'm done. Thanks so much!

Thank YOU! Looking forward for the result! :)

bonjour, vous avez un plan pour l'installation des LED ? merci et beau boulot

Picture 10/13 shows the position of the LEDs.

How did you paint all the little buttons?

With a little brush. ;)

Thank you buddy Its very impressive work and could you please think about K.I.T.T?

I am printing this bad boy now full scale

By the way only the doors need supports right?

because every time I try to do a test print with supports I always ruin the print because of the supports

Depends on your printer i would say.

Try the supports from the programm Meshmixer. They are easyer to remove an leave less marks on the print itself.

If you dont know the tool. You can find them under: Analysis -> Overhangs -> Generate Support

Thanks man, I am on the front_trans right now as we speak and it took me about 38 hours to print the back_trans

By the way although most screen shots show the Delorean in hover mode can you choose which mode you want it in if you want to do some green screen work with it?

No, sorry. The wheels are glued to the model. There are no moving parts for the wheels.

i can only praise the amount of work you have put into this. but that print quality is horrible,
but that will only improve over time once you get the hang of print settings.


The problem is that i printed most of the parts in 0.3mm quality, because i didnt want long print times. That was a mistake...

Very cool, I will have to try it with acetone smoothed ABS.

What did you use for LEDs?

Thanks for sharing ! It looks very very interesting.

I want to print one, must I print the parts with the same orientation that in the picture above ?

Thx for reply!

You´re welcome.

You can print in any orientation you like. :) You will just need supports.

Great job, i'm doing one :) scaled at 63%
Did you masked also the interior where light get through? How you've did to mask the interior rear stripes? It's so tight :)
Best regards.

Thank you!
Yes. I have used woodglue and peeled it of after spraypainting.
Check your sliced model befor printing. I cant guarantee that the print will come out without problems on that scale.

Best of luck and im looking forward to see how it turned out! :)

Already printed all the parts, it misses the base only :) will post it once finished. Inside I think I will paint manually. Thank you for the great design.

I tried Slicing the back of the car but after 2 days, I stopped it cause I wanted to print something else. Is this normal?

No. Slicing should not take 2 days...
Cura needs about 1 minute for the back.

The back_trans.stl is "amazingness" detailed! :D great job!

Comments deleted.

Great stuff!!.... could you tell me what scale this is please?

I'm currently printing this, it is amazing the amount of detail you have put in! It is terrific!
I'm having a few problems with the doors though mainly the little internal window frame, removing the supports for that seems to be very difficult without breaking the frame

Removing some of the supports was a pain in the a....
I broke on of them too and had to glue it with superglue.

Maybe you can use a hot knife to cut it through.

What a great job!! Thanks a lot to share it with us

Thank you! You are welcome!

Amazing!!! Thanks for this great model.

You are welcome!

Лучшая в своём роде! Молодец!

Спасибо мой друг!

This... this is impresive.... congratulations...
