most CAD programs have a 'shell' function where you can take a surface and make it thicker, or a solid and make it hollowMy scanner works with the technology in the 1st gen Microsoft Kinect, and produces a rather poor quality model. The tolerance is something like +- 2mm. I tried to clean up the light bulb socket a bit, but the rest of the model is a bit swollen.
Also, the turn signal housings that I have access to all have the lens installed, so the 3D model does not have a proper cavity (I shrank a portion of the scan and cut the center of the model in order to achieve a cavity). If someone has a turn indicator housing without the lens, I would like to have an opportunity to scan that part (I don't want to try to pull apart the lenses that I have).
Where are you located? I could send you my RH because I need a LH. I am assuming the parts are mirror image of each other.Starting to look at this as we have several 3D printers to play with. What is a decent method to remove the lens? We can 3D scan as well. I downloaded the file and will see if they can be used.
I'm In WI. Do you have the broken one too? I could try to break that one apart to see if I can figure out the 2 different pieces.Where are you located? I could send you my RH because I need a LH. I am assuming the parts are mirror image of each other.
This only matters on the way they are produced. With 3D printing, making 2 costs double making one. Not really any savings.Most of us missing only LH or RH would likely purchase both LH and RH in a group buy to have matching set~ That doubles the demand right there
Definitely looking into thinks like that. A new SLA printer we have can print pretty large objects (possibly a full headlight) but the clarity isn't there for clear objects. A set-up like this might be a neat thing.Humm ideas like this are looking better and better if Lotus doesn't find a new supplier soon.
