Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I've been working back and forth and back again with 3D designing, old school machining and basic hand building to facilitate better fitting of the soon to be grown parts to help the fit of the end results.
I milled up caliper and rotor "blanks" out of resin to help check tolerances inside the software and to the physical parts I have. I also had to draw up in 3D some of the kit parts I modified for spatial orientation. Here's some screen grabs I took before sent the files off to Fraxional.

Thanks GT40!

These are the tie-rod ends with adjusters for toe. Brass and aluminum loosely assembled.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I acid treated them instead of using paint.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Great and informative as always! Your skills are on such a high level witch Really inspires! nice CAD work. We have several printers on work but have not tried them out. What material seems to be best for smooth surfaces? I am suspecting our printers arenít printing fine enough.

Keep up the awesome work!!

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thanks GvEman.
I am not doing the actual printing, I'm just the designer/artist.
But the parts for this one are done with U.V cure resin. It is much better than the nylon based filament parts I had grown some time ago.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I got some more of my 3D parts from Fraxional over the weekend. All parts are raw as "grown", but I have cleaned off the supports. Here's a few.
Flywheel with pressure plate & clutch. Small 153 tooth flywheel.

Front side installed in bellhousing.

New corrected Hewland rear transaxle cover.

Engineered to mount with magnets. (I had the bosses for the magnets grown into the part.)

Full engine & transaxle dry fitted together.

Half shaft yokes 3D printed by Fraxional. The shafts are brass; the larger one has already been treated with acid for the color. Just dry fitted together.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I took a shot at growing some parts myself. Here's a valve cover. It's hard to capture the details in the clear resin in photos. I plan to cast copies in opaque urethane resin.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thanks Ray!!

The alternator parts were grown by Fraxional, but I neglected to send one of the part files so the clear piece is the inner/center section that I grew rather than wait.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I grew the masters of the Wilwood calipers I designed but was not able to get the outsides to look their best without sacrificing the details on the insides where the pads mount.


I machined and hand finished the insides to accept the pads and to fit together.

Fronts on top, rears on the bottom.
