Title: scratchbuilt motorcycle with 3D pen
Post by: Bill Gill on March 15, 2020, 12:41:41 PM
This is another video (34 minutes) showing a 3D pen being used to build a model, this time a motorcycle.
Ideas here for custom fabricating parts for almost anything.

What I couldn't figure out was how did he determine the size and shape of some of the parts.
I think I saw a faint template/outline on his mat when he made the outline of the fuel tank,
and for a number of parts he measured, but again, with the fuel tank, after he made two "sides"
he seemed to join them together "freehand" without any apparent measuring or guides.
That could just be the way the video was edited, but either way, he sure did amazing work with resin.
