Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, the boutique manufacturer of "exotic high-performance racing and road cars", has partnered with Aerosport Modeling & Design to a 3D print small-scale model of its 2019 SCG 004S supercar.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, the boutique manufacturer of exotic and high-performance racing and road cars, and Aerosport Modeling & Design, the company which uses latest technologies to create working 3D prototype parts have partnered up.
The boutique car manufacturer has designed a supercar which is to be released soon. However, in order to create a buzz about the release, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus worked with Aerosport Modeling & Design to develop a fully 3D printed model.
The 2019 SCG 004S supercar is a luxury car which isn’t yet in production. But, the resulting small-scale 3D print of the car was used to promote the line of vehicles and presented in the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus showroom.
“When we got the call on this project, I thought about how cool it would be to produce the entire model with only our in-house 3D printing capabilities,” said Geoff Combs, the owner of Aerosport Modeling & Design.
To develop the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus 2019 SCG 004S supercar one-fifth scale model, Aerosport Modeling & Design used 3D printing technologies such as RSPro 600 from UnionTech and HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology.
“We knew it was very possible for us to do now because of our recent investments new 3D printing technology. In 2017, we had purchased new stereolithography 3D printer from UnionTech, the RSPro 600, with a large build platform of 600 mm x 600 mm x 500 mm (23.6” x 23.6” x 19.6”). Around the same time, we also added HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology to support other customers’ 3D print production needs,” Combs adds.
To 3D print the vehicle’s body panels, chassis and tires, Aerosport Modeling & Design used HP’s technology and PA12 material.
However, the parts were not printed whole, they were split into small components, with the hood design being split into two and the chassis split into four pieces. All of the other parts were printed in 12 pieces.
To print the brake rotors, wheels and window sections, the company used a UnionTech 3D printer and a durable photopolymer called Somos EvoLVe 128 which is best used for prints which have fine details. Finally, the mirror headlight housings, exhaust tips and headlight and taillight lenses were printed using an SLA printer and Somos materials.
The resulting model is 36 inches in length and 15 inches in width. According to Aerosport Modeling & Design, the time it took to complete all of this work was just five weeks. The whole project from concept to completed model was just three months.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus adds that the addition of this model to its showroom has caused the buzz it hoped for.
