Yep Steptoe - if you do want to go to the trouble of getting some 'Brumby' badges made up, don't let me stop you. ( I might get pair myself ) Just haven't had the time or finances to do it.

Just remember it's been released on a 'creative commons' licence, so you will need to acknowledge where you got it from & is to be used for personal use only. ( Its not like there's thousands to be made from them ) Same goes for all the other parts that I've uploaded ... :)

Cheers, Bantum ...

Failed print ...

Also did a trial print of the cancelling sleeve :

Bit of a stuff up with the settings, so will have to print it again... :(

L series door handle surrounds might be nice. The plastic goes bad after being in the sun too long.
Power window surrounds also go brittle where the screws from behind break.

Might have some spares I can donate for the good of all if you need samples to measure off.

Well its done, so here are a few to get you started :

• Front Fender ... BRUMBY :

• Tail gate ... SUBARU GL :

Image

• Bonnet ... 4WD :

They can be found here : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1065522

Haven't got round to printing them yet though ... :(

Will add more here as they become available ... :)
( You're welcome to post any that you find )

Ciao, Bantum ...



P.S. - I couldn't find a heading to put this under so an admin/techie may need to create a new section & move this thread later...
OK, went to thingverse,com on the BRUMBY flank badge hit the doonlood button and got some file 274 kb - that is a bit small, this ain't a file that can be err, sent to a factory in China to reproduce eh ? A mate is working on it, asking me how many, one or two - shipping containers full !

Looks like we are gonna start this from basics, pull badge off, measure its dimensions, take pics, change letters to read BRUMBY instead, and choose a decent plastic ....

Ahh - yes I've been working my way through mostly MY stuff until now, might see what I can do for you when I've finished this lot ... ;)

( Don't hold you breath though, could be while ... :rolleyes: )

Commercialisation ...

No, the objects are not that complicated so the .stl files aren't that big really ... :shock:

Probably not what is intended by the licence - if you want to go that route you'll have to negotiate copyrights with Subaru ... :rolleyes:

Yeah - Like I said, if you want to deal with all the hassles associated with commercialising the stuff, most welcome to try ... Do send me a few samples when you're done ... :D

P.S. - Do note that some of the objects that I've drawn up may not be accurate, as it was mostly done by tracing photos etc. so definitely has a bit of fudge factor in it ... :rolleyes:

Only if you're not using the supplied file, doesn't matter how you apply it ... :neutral:
steptoe wrote:... 3D printing services near you !
Yes it was the intent that you can go to local printer ( or even better if you have your own printer ) & get it made locally ... Only down side is time taken & quality of print ... :p

Hope that clarifies things for you, as I don't want to be a downer - but that's the deal with most free stuff nowadays ... :evil:

all good Bantum, thanks :) Can't see how Subaru has anything to do with a BRUMBY badge being made up - they shoulda thought of it before us ! :)

No worries about the waiting for L series stuff.

If you're going to get stuff done in China, I travel here often as I'm married to a woman from Shanghai (and am there at the moment enjoying the smog, how I miss Aus sun, clouds and blue sky...).
If you can get packages made to fit as luggage and <23kg, I can usually bring back 1 box.
Not sure how that will go for the next trip next year though as there'll be a very small person in tow which might eat into our allowance.

Not required atm as AliExpress does that ... ;)

Although what I really need is some good close-up photos of the parts in all axis with a ruler placed somewhere on it, then I can use 'software' to turn it into a 3D file ... :)

Just don't expect it any time soon, as I'm still working on other projects ... :o

Dunno why, but I can only see the first image Bantum. That one looks good :D

Bummer the other pics aren't currently working.

Umm yeah, Google photos is bit of a pain sharing stuff ... :(

Have yet to work out how to do it correctly every time, as it seems to want to revert back to private ... :/

Think it's sorted now ... ;)
