Hi, I saw and downloaded this project, is very beautiful! Can you make also the Mercedes Benz Biome and the Mercedes Benz Silver Lightning? They are two prototips, but in my opinion very incredible. Thanks if you try to do them.

where do you get the wheels?

Also, can the car move, like if you push it it works? Idk ether way.

The model I uploaded would need modifications to roll properly but it wouldn't be too difficult

Ok thanks for the quick repliy, I could just make the holes for the axel and wheels. That would be pretty easy. ;)

How long did this take you? Thanks, Kitty

Hi! This is cool, but can you explain to me how it helps for it to be in two parts? I'm just curios.

If it was printed with the underside against the build plate it would need to be printed with support material so it was cut in half and printed this way.

Also the perimeters follow the cars profile when printed this way which aesthetically looks much better to me.

Ok thanks again I will try to print and post a pic!! :)

Also, what program did you use for that sceenshot? I use TinkerCad.

what did you use to connect the wheels to the car? btw, I plan on sitting this on top of a Raspberry Pi that is simulating car for a demo. Love the design!

Sounds great! I think i glued the wheels on in the end.

Hi Barney, Thanks for sharing. I printed it in two halves and came out nice. i uploaded the video (in two parts)
Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1L46fKhL60
part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABkFnwAbSgI

Wow, that's great! Thanks for sharing

with a so flat bottom it wil be easier to print the body in one piece with support for the rear. if it warp a little you can't see it

2 layers on the bottom 2 perimeters 5 layer on top 0.15 infill mus give you better results

if you can upload the uncut stl ...

thank you

Thanks for the suggestion, I've added updated files.

I think I still prefer the surface finish with the model orientated on it's side but obviously as long as it doesn't warp :)

just made one used 3mm filament as wheel axes printed 0.4 thick could be nicer but fully printable with slic3r and supports

it looks great, thanks for sharing
