As soon as you can produce these in 1/18 scale, give me a shout!

I've got them in 1/24 if you need a pattern.

bringing this back up because i have recently considered one. have you guys seen this review of 3 low cost printers? the most expensive one is $1200, cheapest i think was $500.  From researching the items that it is capable of making, it looks like model parts will be no problem. Wondering if anyone uses a 3d printer to make scale model parts around here.

Holy, what incredible timing for this thread to come up.

I just bought a few wheel models from Turbosquid. (RSIevolution, The Rota P45R was one of those sets.)
But the selection is quite limited in the reasonable price range. I'd love to get some older wheels from the 90s modeled.  Like these for example:

And something like these, definitely,

I've been slacking on getting this done, We're lucky enough to have an Objet 3D printer at the office. The thing is badass. I'm looking to start getting into it a lot more.

I know this technology from a long time and im very happy that its getting more affordable, to me its like magic and have endless possibilities, specialy for the collectors like us, imagine how cool will be to download our own 1:18 cars and parts, having them custom made with just the configurations we want them!

This is one of the coolest technologies ever!

guys I am also very much interested in 3D printing and custom parts. but here is my question, are these 3D parts strong enough to survive a long life? as we all know some resin parts melted or change shape in years. do you think this may happen with 3D products?
this might be a serious problem especially for wheels since they will carry all the die-cast models weight.

^^i have no idea, it is a very valid question. For me, i plan to make a mold from the ABS plastic 3D printed wheel so i can create resin versions. I am not sure which is stronger, ABS 3d printed wheels or Resin wheels, however i just want the ability to make as many wheels as i want without having to print them each time (especially since i'm not the owner of the printer).

sure you'r right. the cost of 3d printers and material are expensive so to produce wheels each time should be costly.
but if possible can you later compare the ABS and resin made wheels and your experiences with both for us to have more understanding about the strength

thanks in advance

First design was unsuccessful as mentioned above. 3 spokes did not connect because the spokes were not deep enough. Here you can see it raw, then painted so it's easier to see:

Then i spent 4 more hours tonight (i'm no expert at CAD!!!) to redesign the wheel. I could have just added to the old design to make the spokes deeper, however after seeing it in 3D, i felt the wheel needed a complete redesign from the ground up, so i started from zero. I make the spokes deeper and wider apart. Here is the new CAD rendering and hopefully will have a successful wheel printed within the hour.

looks like it was a mostly successful print from the redesign. just need to clean it up a bit with a file.
