Body Scale Model

4 12 2009

The rapid prototype scale model is a representation of the frame that is used to develop the body. Modeling clay is used over the 3D printout and is formed to the desired shape, which is then scanned, scaled up and used to cut mold layers on a router table. These layers are then glued together, sanded to produce the desired finish, and finally cover with bondo and sealed to prepare for manufacturing via the VARTM process.
