3D printed Toyota drivetrain

It's not an FJ engine, but this guy has some serious skill modeling another Toyota classic, a functional scale 22RE. I'm going to start with the rear axle and drive shaft tonight, will post up pics here of my progress. I bet you there's 100+ hours of printing into the whole setup...

Re: 3D printed Toyota drivetrain

Probably used a 3D scanner and didn't model any of it but still very very cool.

Re: 3D printed Toyota drivetrain

I don't know, that would have to be a huge scanner. I've got one but its only good for objects up to about 6"x6"x6", nevermind a 22RE engine block or an axle...

Not to mention, while the exterior appearances are almost exact the guts that make it function have been designed to use small 3D printer bearings and 3mm Rod. It would likely be more work to modify a 3D scan than modeling it to accept those things in the first place.

Re: 3D printed Toyota drivetrain

There's no way a 3d scanner has high enough fidelity to accurately model all the parts. Also, what printer are you using? I really want a Prusa i3 some time soon. Have you made any useful models/prints?

Re: 3D printed Toyota drivetrain

Stuff like this has always amazed me. A few years back I saw something like this on YouTube that is still my favorite. A guy handmade a miniature working model of a Merlin engine from a P51 Mustang and it sounded and looked freaking amazing. I bet I watched that video a dozen times in a row. Cool stuff.

I've only done the transmission housing so far, there's something like 20+ gears in it that I need to do, plus all the shift forks.

I'm using my PrintrBot Simple Metal for this, I've got a RigidBot that'll do 18"x18"x18" but the motherboard is fried, so it's down while I try to piece one together. As far as "useful" stuff, pretty much nothing. Haha, a couple thermostat knobs, keyboard buttons, that kind of stuff. I used to print model buildings for clients for work though, that was always cool.

Re: 3D printed Toyota drivetrain

Another update. Gears were the hardest to print, the level of detail they require to mesh is insane.
