So i got myself a small 3d printer and I'm interested in making up some AMP related things... I can find lots of top down 2d images of the track but does anyone have a 3d model of it including elevation? No need for the surrounding area or infield, just the roadway itself. Seems like a racing game might use such a thing.

Cheers,

Devon

Yep, the track surface in the rfactor version is modeled as separate 3D objects (as a few segments) from the surrounding surfaces. What sort of file format do you need?

Fantastic, STL and OBJ are the big ones. Separate segments are fine by me, I have the means to modify both types of files. You wouldn't have such a thing would you?

Thanks for the reply Ken.

Cool idea Devon. If it works out well we'll have to try it in metal once our lab gets our machine :twisted:

Greg will you be able to do something like this? https://internetofbusiness.com/alan-tur ... amsterdam/

Imagine someday being able to 3D print an entire car chassis with integral cage.

Pretty cool, but not quite! that's a wire fed unit, so basically a mig welder on a robot arm. We're in the market for something a bit more high tech :wink:
