Peterbilt Truck

3D model description

Peterbilt Truck modeled in Fusion 360. Had to sacrifice certain parts features and dimensions to make them printable.

Model comprised of separate parts to print them with different colors and settings. Full assembled model also included.

Model scale: X: 95.69 mm Y: 285 mm Z: 133.55 mm

I chose silk PLA for the main color and chrome parts for shiny effects. It is a pain in the back to print with this filament, but I eventually got it going.

Some parts will fit just right, while others will need glue.

Started modeling back in the early 90s with Autodesk 3D Studio, when it used to ship with 16 3.5 floppy disks. Later I started using Maya, ZBrush, Fusion 360 and recently Modo, with the aid sometimes of Adobe illustrator and Photoshop mainly for creating alpha brushes/shapes.

Still fascinated with the evolution of 3D printing, as back then models were eventually stored in folders and that's it. To print however those created 3D models, physically see them, touch them and place them right in front of you on the desk with different colors and materials, is simply magical.

3D printing is a modern revolution, a movement as some like to call it, and I'm very glad to live it and be part of it, knowing that we are just starting, and that one day we will be laughing at the current FDM plastic filament based printers for being an old primitive technology.

HP Fusion Color 3D printers will be on our desks one day with the price of current multicolored documents/images printers. No doubt about it.
