  1. Wow, hats off mate, those are great builds! Hopefully the OP gets excited by them, it's amazing what you can do with a bit of practice and patience once you've got the right tools...although not everyone can build like that. I've got enough stuff on the digital workbench to keep me busy for a long time, but hope to play with some OBJ's for 3D printing one day. Cheers for sharing.
  2. That is very nice, how did the final model turn out BB? Would love to see some pics. Looks like I need to get familiar with 3DS and Netfabb.
  3. Sorry @barreiros, but this isn't an opinion piece, it's a request thread, so I really don't care what you think. If posters follow the rules, there's absolutely no reason why they should be refused service, or tolerate any personal comments. I'm really hoping someone will kindly link these for me, if you can, it'd be very much appreciated: https://www.desirefx.me/ferrari-pininfarina-sergio-2013-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/rolls-royce-silver-shadow-1965-1980-3d-model/ If they appeared in a search, they'd be on my computer right now.
  4. I've been attempting the same thing occasionally, but the downloads from here are only useful as a form of template to use as reference. Not having $20k for Geomagic to professionally reverse engineer a mesh, I've had a look around at cheaper methods, here's what I've come up with: An OBJ has a preferable quad mesh to an STL's triangular, both can be imported into most CAD programs as mesh, but (for example) SolidWorks' 'Scan-to-3D' and Rhino's 'Mesh-to-Nurbs' can't handle the sheer number of triangles and usually crash. I've seen people import an OBJ into Blender (free download) and add thickness, but I've not found an OBJ saved as a solid block. It's very difficult to add thickness and merge each part to form a solid for printing. You can also import an OBJ or STL into Fusion360 (free 12 month download, subscription pretty inexpensive), convert the mesh to T-Splines, then convert T-Splines into a boolean body, then add thickness. But it's time consuming and very heavy going. Meshmixer (free download) can offset an outer mesh to make an inner skin...join it all together to make a hollow part, which can then be imported into Fusion360 and converted to a solid block. The best I've been able to achieve is either importing into Alias (expensive, but 12 month Education licence can be registered) as a mesh template to build over (there is a nurbs wrap function but not very accurate), or use Fusion360 to convert to from mesh > T-Splines > boolean body > STEP and import into Solidworks to model over. The STEP can be converted into a SW part and used to generate curves from for reverse engineering...possibly the fastest and most accurate way to use the original OBJ. No doubt other CAD programs have similar capacity to work with a STEP. So, in short, no you can't use a downloaded file to 3D print directly, but if you have a lot of time on your hands you can use them as a template to create your own 3D print file. Of course, only use them if they're accurate...it may just be quicker to find a good set of blueprints and start from scratch yourself. Has anyone else tried, maybe with a polygon modeler like Max?
  5. If you could just post the files I'd really appreciate it. It's great you guys are kind enough offer to share them with us, and it must be frustrating to receive requests over and over, but reward those who follow the rules. Well, it's a 2-way street when you start being a smart ass to posters...I prefer to keep it civil though. I've done searches for 'Mercedes + 300', 'ferrari + pininfarina', 'segio' and 'rolls + royce + silver', changed the settings in advanced, re-run the search, nothing appears. Hence my post. So clearly the search function has its quirks. I got off my butt and arranged to have Malwarebytes unblock syncs.online, so was proactive enough to get access to the files I could. I appreciate the link to the Mercedes file though, cheers!
  6. Hopefully @DARKSIDEOPGcan help resolve this for me...it's a clear process, I agree, so not sure why you're refusing to help people that follow the rules.
  7. @bodgybro can you please just help me out with these, as requested: https://www.desirefx.me/ferrari-pininfarina-sergio-2013-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/rolls-royce-silver-shadow-1965-1980-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/mercedes-benz-300se-w112-1961-1965-3d-model/ If you need me to show you how to use the search function to discover they are not available on this site, I'm happy to help you. @DARKSIDEOPG can you please assist?
  8. https://www.desirefx.me/ferrari-pininfarina-sergio-2013-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/rolls-royce-silver-shadow-1965-1980-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/mercedes-benz-300se-w112-1961-1965-3d-model/ Thanks BB (or if anyone else can help, much appreciated!)
  9. Alright, site block fixed and I downloaded a few models I was after. Can I please have a few more? https://www.desirefx.me/ferrari-pininfarina-sergio-2013-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/rolls-royce-silver-shadow-1965-1980-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/mercedes-benz-300se-w112-1961-1965-3d-model/ https://www.desirefx.me/alfa-romeo-disco-volante-touring-2013-3d-mdoel/ Thanks so much guys!
  10. I hope so @bodgybro, I don't think I can live without those files!
  11. Thanks @denny, I am looking for .obj files...so you are suggesting the trojan my malware has detected on syncs.online is possible in one of the files hosted on the site?
  12. There's heap of files I'd like to download from DesireFX, but can't get past my malware software...trojan detected. Has anyone actually downloaded from the site, is it secure? Seems syncs.online is the problem.
  13. I'd like to request this Abarth please, prefer in OBJ if possible: http://www.igcd.net/vehicle.php?id=160421
  14. Can someone please tell me where to find the download limit?
