Noice! but unfortunately no swift GTi. Perhaps some clever clogs on the site can set one up?

Nice! But how would one be able to create one as an exact replica? Don't they have to scan a whole car?

I still can't believe there are no GTi's model available to this day. When it is available, I'll buy a few in a heartbeat.

It's a great 3D graphic but to print it out as a 3D model will take considerable work and time.

The model consist of 29 seperate 3D objects - that means you will have to print each of these individually - also you will have to tweak each to be suitable for printing. The model even in 'smoothing' off is massive (and thus the final print would not be as ideal)

To print the car as one could be done with a multihead 3D printer - but would be a gamble.

This maybe 3D printed from this 3D graphic - but the work to achieve it would be a challenge.

The reason that there is not a proper GTi model available is they (the bean counters) probably don't think there is a suitable viable market.

I found a 3D render of a swift gti on the net recently, I'll have to try find the file again but it could be a good starting point..

This could be a better start .. best if it is one file, hope it can be converted to an appropriate file for 3D printing

shame these are just the jpgs

you need the original .stl, .obj or other 3d modelling file format to convert for 3d printing
