    Hopefully an oblique take on 3D reverse engineering.

    http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=1682986&stc=1&d=1364675379

    I had the privilege of 3D scanning an original GTO in Spain a couple of years ago. Was allowed to use the data as long as the cars unique features were disguised. Have only managed to look at the data recently and the work in progress is shown above.

    Please note bonnet bulge and front indicators place markers awaiting better info. Essentially, I only create 3D designs based on original data and for cars that can be made in the real world. The bonnet bulge and indicators need accuracy to be verified (translation is I know they are not accurate at moment).

    Cool! What program is that being done in?

    Nice work!
    Are you using Geomagic for comparison? I've just started using CloudCompare.com - it's free!
    Any advice on solidworks surfacing? I find the area around the headlights, where they blend into the grille, very difficult.

    Top lurking Sam. Joined 2004 and my post prompted a response.

    Yes I use Geomagic and absolutely love the program and the company.

    Solidworks surfacing. Read the instructions, practice and take your time on each sub surface. Rushing will only produce a poor result. I know what I am doing and this body has taken me ages. Remember that Ferrari bodies were hammered and a scan picks this up. With CAD you are creating order within a range of chaos.

    Finish detailing then create buck and chassis designs for the car.

    1) Buy full-size 3-D printer.
    2) Hit "Print"
    3) Enjoy

    The possibilities are endless. Now if we could only make that work with steel and aluminium....

    Best,

    Jack.

    You can already print in a form of hybrid-like stainless. Can some form of structural polymer be far behind? Or how about a 3-D nanocomposite weaver?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to create something similar with a Cobra Daytona but am unsure on the best way to go from a Solidworks model to actual reality - how are you intending on creating the buck?

    Very Interesting 3DE !!!
    We produce some new body for GTO , LM , Spider California , made from our handcrafter with 35 years experiences in Carrozzera Scaglietti.
    Some time we produce the mould some time we made completly by hand .

    I know lasercan , clean all surface is not easy !!

    Cisitalia,

    That's fantastic work!

    3DE,

    I was discussing 3D scanning of car bodies on Tom Yangs site only yesterday.
    Jim Stokes Workshops uses it on very rare and early race cars (pre-war alfas etc) so that if one is damaged the body can be "faithfully" replicated during a repair.

    3D scanning is the future for documenting these old cars accurately whilst we still have some un molested examples out there. The data can then be used (wisely) as an accurate and true reference for future generations

    Hi Darren C,
    yes laser scan is very important for be able to produce parts who are not enymore avaiable , or lost mould and Drawing.

    We produce many parts also of Engines, etc , old Man have experience at 360° , now engeneer are specialized in Shocks , only shocks ......Ignition , very good but only ignition......!!
    We produce Alfa Romeo 3000CM Works Racing machine drived from Fangio , found in Argentina , car was modified in spider from a coachbuilder ....we rebuild in perfect original specification !

    Also produce Bizzarrini GT 5300 Strada manifould for Chevy Big Block of Racing version.

    Now we are working on rebuild a 6 cylinder Maserati engine , head, block , etc.

    Sorry for my poor english !
