MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I've always wanted to model and print a body for the Kyosho Mini-Z and now there's a vehicle simple enough for my measly skills! It's as close as possible to the real thing by Tesla, but some design changes were needed to fit the chassis.
This here is a body kit for a Mini-Z RC car, the one I used as a reference was this one. Hopefully it fits in to other kits also! (the above chassis is a 90mm wheelbase, narrow and "Normal" config" without the body mount installed).
The body itself is a single print with integrated supports, and it prints perfect with an FDM machine! You can print the tires as a single print version, or with hubcaps separate and in both case they go over the original rims (the rims here are for the chassis set)
If you don't have a Mini-Z car, you can print the chassis+axle+rim set and use that to install the wheels!
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
