3d Printed Replacement parts

Recommended Posts

Zengin

Just wanted to share my attempt at a 1:1 3d printed and finished replacement part for my Horikawa robots. Left is printed and right is original.

 

Thanks,

James

I have tried every "chrome" paint on the market and i have a tote of once used cans/bottles... nothing has every even approached the quality this stuff delivers! plus this stuff does not require a base coat and can be stripped easily if it needs redone.

Cheers Zengin.

Can buy it in cans as I can only find it in marker pens and refill  tubes.

I airbrush it straight from the refills

Very nice, looks perfect! I use Alclad chrome paint and found it to work well. However, based on your results, I think I'll try Molotow for a future project. Thanks for sharing this.
