Blue Fire Train Model

Postby Sitroms » Thu May 18, 2017 1:21 pm

Hi everyone !

I have not been posting here since a long time, but I was working on my last model : it's the first car of the Blue Fire, the LSM launch coaster located in Europapark.

As you can see, I decided not to do a track but a train as detailed as possible. My 3D printer helped me to do that.

At the beginning, I searched 3D files of the blue fire on the Internet but I didn't find it for free... So I needed to designed it myself.
If you want my files (Solidworks or STL) you can easily ask me and I'll send it to you. Of course they are not perfect, and I designed it to be adapted to my small printer.

So let's see it ! I'm waiting for your feedbacks !

Very impressive model. As someone who plays with CAD quite a bit, I applaud you.

After spending hours in CAD in high school chasing the engineering dream, I understand the work that went into this. Seriously impressive! You should post this in the Europa Park thread - I believe their owners/GM's read this board and I bet they'd love to check your work out!
