I have started modeling my '59 Dodge. I have the technology, the know-how, some time for do this, and last but not least - the authentic car in my home.

In Internet I found some other models, some of them very nice, but most from drawings or pictures, therefore not exact and looking artificially. I would like to do it perfect, as my car, with the correct dimensions, and in real-view technology. This designs could as well be used for direct tooling and professional reproduction.

 This will take some time, and one day hopefully, the '59 Dodge will stay here like an Original!

 The first problem is to get the correct dimensions, curves and shapes. The next problem is to put these original "hand-designed" data geometrically in the system. What remains is puzzle. I will start with the more complex chrome parts, emblems, and then go on to the body. All the pictures shown here will be unexpectionally 3D-Cad Designs.

May-be there are Members with the similar potential in supporting this objective, using SolidWorks, or does some parts have already been designed?

I wish you the best of luck.

That would really be hard to do. Be good if you could use a laser or microwave or something like that (like a surveyeyer uses) to sort of slice the car up didgitally.

Wow, I didn't expect that, but I'm sure they will be of exceptional quality!

How many hours have you spent on the hubcap already?

How does it do it? The first one has reflections in it. I thought it was all measurement based or something. I have to admit to knowing nothing about CAD

And someday they'll make a machine to produce a car from the CAD data. One part down, a few more to go. Looking good!

Very cool. When complete, please share your cad file with us. I would love for my office to add a '59 Dodge to our architectural renderings. (might help distract the viewer from any bad architecture!)

ttotired: Be good if you could use a laser or microwave . . .  

Just for have it in 3D could work for some parts (not for a HubCap as shown), similar to a scanned photo. Have a look at parts being reproduced with Originals as Master, most of them visibla as Copy and not as not as Original.
To copy, as I do here, is not creative at all. But but the way, the tool and the stunning results are a challenge for the brain.and as well an enjoyment.

ttotired: The first one has reflections in it . . .

Scenes and material can be assigned to the model. Here I used "warm kitchen" for remove the technical aspect, and "polished chrome" for an Original look.

The rear side is matt with no reflections, as the Original HubCap.(material could be stone, rubber, wood, or whatever).

1956DeS:  And someday they'll make a machine to produce a car from the CAD data.

I think may-be  .. in 50 years? But in reduced size as did Cadi with one of there cars, and with other Engine/Suspension and Electronics. But overall looking exact same!

And these files can be used for direct tooling (without dimensions, or direct sampling with Stereo-Lithography)

slimwhitman:  . . . please share your cad file with us.  . .

With eDrawing (free download), the parts can be viewed. rotated, zoomed and as well automatic displayed in various views as for show.


Wizard: Thank you for the encouragement!- SERGE -

Here is just one HeadLamp Ring. The other can simply be mirrored as many other Car Parts to come.
Who is owner of a 1959 Dodge can easy compare this design with the Original. There are minor differences from one part to the other, even the rings are not exactly round.

Here I did it "correct"!  (All pictures shown are PrintScreens and reduced in Size)

I put you an eDrawing File with the Coil Support as shown in "My Electronic Ignition Conversion". The downloaded eDrawing doesn't support RealView, thus no reflective Chrome . For this you will need the professional version (not free). Anyway, everyone here, I recommend,  can check this tool to get a feeling what is real 3D-CAD, and look how it works  - amazing to play with. - SERGE -

Impressive all these nice rechromed parts. You will enjoy mounting them as I did some years ago. Now I will enjoy as well when assembling my CAD-Parts. The difference, I will keep clean hands and drink my coffee simultaneously. - SERGE -   :laugh:

This is the TAG-Plate of my 1959 DODGE Convertible, as already shown in another thread. But this one is revised:
The character of the letters and there position is adapted to the Original. Then the plate has the correct border, and what was very critical to realize, on the rear of the plate, the letters are "stamped" as in production.

Going on modeling some other parts, I weighted the Rear Lamp Body, well-known by every owner of a 1959 Dogde. I measured exactly 1000 grams, say 1 kg. BigBlockMopar will kindly check and confirm this value.

On the CAD Rear Lamp Body I have assigned the Material   "Zinc, As Cast" and got a weight of 1044.09 grams. Then I assigned as well plastic "ABS", as used for rechromed plastics, and got a weight of 158.95 grams. Means, alone these 4 Bodies, reproduced in Rechromed Plastics, would reduce 3.36 kg of the cars weight, the volume and the surface area of this Body remaining the same.

Impressive numbers!

I don't have a scale in my garage to measure that but maybe I could make a balance with a liter of water to see how close it is to a kilo. Don't you love how logical the metric is guys...

This tricky "game" I expected to be easier - finally I got it.  The Rear Lamp Unit: Body, Lens, Seal, Ring, Screws. All modeled in a Single Multipart File.   

The three asymmetrical mounting studs I replaced with four symmetrical ones, for a mounting in any position of the car: right side top, right side bottom, and on the left side correspondingly. I also removed the rear injection points around the Lamp Socket.


One more perfect "restored" Unit on the way to the virtual 1959 DODGE.  - SERGE -

I added eDrawing-Files: PanHead Screw, 1959 Rear Lamp Seal, 1959 Rear Lamp Ring, as illustrated here. The Rear Lamp Ring can be seen on the car in the thread  "Make-up your Car".

Congrat Hermann, you are very observant. In fact, because I did this set as a MultiPart in a single file, I just "mirrored" the screw and got therefore a second one with lefthand thread. Now I will "array" the screw and both will have righthand thread  - thanks.

This Parking Lens may be one of the easiest parts to model: just sketch the profile and revolve.

Often broken, they are hard to find NOS and thus quite expensive. The reproductions, available on the market, are silver painted on the outern surface, instead chrome plated as original. Here you see it correctly.

On my DODGE I use another lense, will be shown later on in the assembly. For security reasons, in Switzerland this light should be visible at a side angle of 150deg.

This is the 1959 Front Grill, in brushed Aluminium. Here I omitted the upper fixing tabs and the stabilizers on the rear for a nicer aspect.

The Front is center-angeled by 5 degree, not remarkable on the car. The Chrome Bars left and right hand, here not shown, are parallel and thus have as well a 5deg angle each other.

This Collar on the Front Position Lamps was optional only on the  '59 Custom Royal. Original there is an upper and a lower half. Here you see the right side Collar. To get the left side one it has to be mirrored.
For an uniform view from side, this Collar here is modeled in one piece and is just cut as original, only on one, the inner side; thus being fixed with only 3 screws. On my car the full round Collar has 23 teeth as on the model - on some Original Brochures I counted less.

This is a very rare part to find, here guaranteed pits-free! - SERGE -

For variation now a part that can be used, as option, on all FWL-Cars: the Dual Rear Antenna, here shown the left side one as set,  the right side one mirrored as shown in the last picture

An ingenious concept, combined with a full free surface modeling technology, allowed this complex shape to be implemented quite fast. Thus, I added more details inside the Antenna Body.
The Antenna Bar correspond to my upgraded Automatic Device, I may show it here later on.

On the other hand, here the Antenna Gasket as described in "Make-up your Car!". This Gasket can be mounted without the complicated dissassembling of the the antenna. The 3 cut-out angle have 100deg (+), the partial length are 169.5 + 171 + 25.1 = 365.6mm, the outer circumference has 367.75mm. For a better visibility I did the gaps wider than in reality. A separate file of this gasket is attached for eDrawing (free download this application SW).

Here another nice model, hard to identify differences to the Original. Many car owners are looking for this Rear Dual Antenna, and when once available - hardly affordable.
Unfortunately, here you can just see it - but not take it! - SERGE -

wizard - 2011-01-29 9:47 PM I'm flabbergasted by the beauty in those pictures . . .
. . . as I am with many excellent jobs shown on this site.

I even barely believed to get such authentic models.

To be honest: For doing this, no High School is needed, for it is not an engineering, but simply a copy of an existing part. As everyone with some know-how in applied Mechanics is able to restore a car, as well everyone with some Know-How in descriptive Geometry can translate a part to a model. Both need the correct tools and the way to use them, some creativity and the motivation to bring the ambitious aim to an end. It is like a game you want to win.

At the end all are flabbergasted of their own incredible results.  - SERGE -

To be correct, here the Original Rear Antenna Gasket. I found a pair of Repros, not used, because they are too big (up to 3mm too long), the reason for the alternative. They are equal, although the base is not symmetric. Here the Original is exact to the corresponding base.
I feel this look "softer", but not applicable without removing the antenna. Just find another profile for the alternative. Compare and judge yourself on the second picture.

I added as well an eDrawing file of this Original Gasket, hopely the producer will use this for direct tooling. - SERGE -

Among the three Side Mouldings, Front - Door - Rear, the Front one is particular due to the various end. The rear end of the Long Rear Moulding is as well curved in order to fit the fender.  Apart this, the profile is simple and the length is just another number to program. For a 2- door car: 398mm - 1234mm - 2375mm,  important to know when bidding in eBay!

Not apparently on the car the slanted rear of the Front PositionLamp Bodies. Here I omitted the mounting brackets, much more complex and heavy than the body, not needed for my assembling to come.

Apart from that the shape is as the original. - SERGE -

Wow. I am working with a little project on my company, preprocessing point clouds from laser scanning data. It is amazing what new programs can do. If I only had possibility to use scanner and some time to play....
Those models are wonderful! Keep up the good work!

Wizard: Until now I used spare parts, and I didn't disaembled parts from the car jet. I don't have a spare Door Handle and will just model what is visible, as well with other parts. Later on I can add what is missing, as the mounting brackets on the Body of the Front PositionLamp. The exact position of the items for the assembling I measure on my car.

As can be seen on some shown parts , the chrome is very shiny and on others not. When very shiny, the problem is mirroring the ambient, as when take pictures from chrome parts. Then the real shape is hardly visible. Thus, the shown Side Mouldings have removed ambient, or the mirroring profile will narrate. On the pictures you can easy recognize if there is a model or a real part, when inside a part there is unrealistic the same light and ambient. There I could add "matte chrome" as I did on the rear of the HubCap. This one looks amazing as an Original.

JT Newman: By scanning parts you get a model with all blemishes of the part due to the production process and the non-linear shrinking of the molds. A reproduction using a scanned or impressed part will experience a second shrinking. In a new part the shrinking factor is taken into account by selecting the material. On the other side, a scanned part can as well be (up-) scaled.

Before mounting my new Power Windows Switch I just put them in the Computer. Full geometrical devices, easy and fast to realise, even with all sizes 1 -2 - 3 - 4. I never saw a 3 Switch one, so could even do a 5 Switch item. Here I present only the Front View of the four Versions.  - SERGE -

For the freaks I have attached an eDrawing file with the single and quadro version (just the front due to file size) for play with. Now I have downloaded this pre-checked file, the remaining file name has to be renamed with the extension .EPRT (CAD -> CAD.EPRT). You may need to upgrade your eDrawing-Viewer to 2011 (for free in Internet). Please some feedback. Thanks.

. . .  Apart from that the shape is as the original. . . No, when assembling with the collar I saw one step wasn't cut-out on the lower side. Just cut both in one operation. I think this is for not touch the Front Bumper or for tighten the screws. Not nice, could even remove in the model.

After completing the Front Bar I can present a first Assembly of the Front. I removed the shown Step Cut, as well on the lower side of the Front Bar, for a nicer aspect. In the Computer all is done with real dimensions 1 :1. For the first time, the owners of a 1959 Dodge can check if their Front Components are aligned correctly.

wizard - 2011-02-19 10:11 PM . . . will you do the sheetmetal as well? . . .

The objective is to have one day all the complete car, what is visible. The biggest job (games!) are all the parts around the car, what I am doing now. Every part is a single project. The body (sheetmetall) will be a small thing in respect to the Knight Head or other complex parts. This will be one single "cover", then being splitted in Trunk,  Doors, Hood. For now I already assemble the existing parts at the correct location, "floating in the air" - these parts are "waiting" for the body. What doesn't exist jet can be added by imagination.

At the end any color combination can be realized, even in wood, in stone, any material. All the car can be scaled, transformed, stretched . . . whatever by a few commands, keeping all in 3D-RealView. Then the car can be placed in any 3D-environment, there will hardly be a difference between reality and animation.

This will be the end of the game or - then the real game starts!  - SERGE -

The Rear "D O D G E" Letters mounted on the Trunk have been done in one block, with the correct distance, for an easy assembling. Without any details primarly very easy and fast to realize.  But then the pattern of the borders, with the many fillets, finally needed alone about 50 (fifty) times more memory, the file size has grown up to 49MB (Mega).

That's Design!  - SERGE -

Among '59 Dodge owners, this part is well-known as "EyeBrow". If they had 3D-CAD in the fifties, this part would have been designed per shure different, with less twist, curvature and bend. I will have to do a fine fitting to the sheet metall when assembling for no gaps at all - as on my DODGE!  - SERGE -

This Rear Emblem comes on the trunk of the Custom Royal, on the Coronets there are two on the fender front sides. For technical interested Readers I show shortly how this body is being modeled.

Take a picture size 1:1 as base reference, draw five sections for the left arm, loft them along 3 guides and mirror this half to get the entire body. This as well for the flower emblem: left and center part, mirror this as to get the complete flower, and mirror all again to get it twice. Loft the upper small bar at constant profile, extrude the panel with the given profile, extrude the lower Dent and array it 5 times.

That's all! All other is the finish.

Some items are shown matte for no mirror irritations. The knight, being used as well for other Emblems to come, will be done separate and shown later.  – SERGE  -

The Chevron Emblems are mounted on the rear fenders, thus there have two different ones, the one for the left side and the other for the right side, with different part numbers.

At the first glance they look equal. But the lower side, seen when mounted, is about 1.5mm higher. Here I modeled both items symmetric, the mounting pins being mirrored as on the samples. The original emblems have various thickness, and the wings differs from the others in details – the wellknown tolerances at the time. A reproduction by from a 3D-scan of these parts could be critical.

Now I can state, this Chevron Emblem has never been illustrated as nice and perfect as on the shown pictures here.  – SERGE -

Would you be able to someday output these files to a 3D printer and produce finished copies, ready to be mounted ?

Note: Coronet had a nameplate that read 'Coronet' on front fender. Only the station wagons and Silver Challenger had the trunk medallion on the fenders. Are you fancying things up a bit by making the knight's head gold ?

There are two scripts Custom Royal”, on the left and the right side of the car. They are made in golden anodized Aluminium. Because letters cannot be mirrored, both scripts are identical.

A picture and/or better a scan on the flatbed scanner gives a useful reference contour. Before using, it must be aligned to fit to the real measured values. The picture 01 shows the "aligned" script, the verticals

of the support becoming straight and the sheetmetall underneath rounded. As these emblems varies in details from one to the other, the letters of the reference sketch have to be optimized – what needs the most time. Once the result is satisfying by visual control, then the proceeding is simple. Finally, the modeled scripts have to be deformed to the bodys curved surface. CAD made this easy, but by processing the computer goes quite busy. The mounting pins are missing and not modeled here.

Another golden eye-catcher, upgrading the 1959 Dodge Custom Royal to its exclusivity  -  SERGE -

Ron, if you send me the exact contour of the nameplate "Coronet", I can do this for you (JPG or PDF). These files, converted to .STEP or .STL as used in the industry, can directly be used for Tooling or 3D-Printing. Last process is still not enough exact for small

parts. The Golden Knight Head is still on my "program", but it must be done perfectly.

FWL Emblem: This emblem is not a 1959 Dodge part. But I am fascinating of this design. Here some variations in 3D-RealView. All fantastic combinations can be done.

But for another time.  - SERGE -

Push Button Unit: The gear in the automatic torqueflite transmission is set by five push buttons R – N – D – 1 – 2 . These are moulded parts in green transparent plastic, the letters are graved and colored with paint (01). These buttons are just shifted on to the rear mechanical unit. The transparency shows exact the original conical design (02). The protecting chrome cups are pushed on the buttons (03). For a smoother return, O-rings are provided as dampener (04).

Finally, the patterned and polished aluminium panel is mounted and fixed by two screws (05). As the buttons are in transparent plastic, with rear light they appear illuminated (06). In the exploded views all parts are visible (07)(08).

Here the push button unit as it is – in 3D-RealView.

Any questions? Yes, with the STL-files of the present design these push buttons could be reproduced exactly with a 3D Printer, even the green transparent 3D Filament is now available.  - SERGE -

Sven: . . . .  it must have taken many hours of measuring and creating the pushbuttons . . . .

As the software is parametric, the exact dimensions are re-measured and corrected at the end of the modeling process.

And for those who are familiar with: This is not an assembly of parts as usual, but a multipart design. I use to do a mastersketch, one or two views referring to all parts.

Later the dimensions can be modified here, means that all parts are in one single file .sldprt, and in the sketched position, except when "exploded".

Equal items are modeled together, or mirrored, arrayed and copied if needed.  - SERGE -

Convertible Top Pin – Grommet: Devices to center and seal the top when up, in the parts catalogue as “catch and seal”. The easiest part until now to model. Just needed the correct dimensions of the grommet. Here some pictures in 3D-RealView. - SERGE -

The reference for numbering the speedometer scale is the drum, as it is lateral fixed and cannot be moved. Thus, the distances of the scale numbers have to be positioned and centered according the lines (01). Total distance for any 10mph is 18.583mm, the numbering length for 140mph (center to center) is 223mm. The original scale is somewhat mismatched, now the numbers are aligned to the speedometer drum (02).

The letters and the directional emblems on the original glass are engraved backside and whitened. The upper and lower white stripe support the illumination (03). The glass version with the speed reminder option has an additional scale which is printed (04). The setting knob here looks like a lonely bird flying in the sky (05).

At the speed of 0mph the first green bar is just (not-) visible at correct setting (06). Up to 30mph the bar is GREEN (07), from 30 – 50mph turns to YELLOW (08), and higher than 50mph up shows RED (09). The assembly is shown in (10). On the exploded view, the rear metal panel in black and the colored tabs, green and blue for the light signals, are brought out (11).

Finally, the correct and direct interchangeable Speedometer Scale in kmph,  0 – 180 (120mph = 193.08kmph). 200 is out of the range and would interfere with the Speed Reminder Scale. Compressing the scale to 200 to coincide to 120 needs a recalibration. For completing, the front chrome bar  D O D G E  (12).  - SERGE - 

 

More options and printable templates will be presented in the thread “Make-up your car”.

Absolutely amazing! Has 3D caught up now? I see YouTube videos of very smooth 'prints' from share ware or whatever it is called. It then can be molded in silicone and cast in wax and then molded in a plaster mold with metal like white bronze. You just need a vacuum bell, 3D printer, forge, kiln, silicone/plaster mold making equipment, wax dispenser, and skill. Marc.

To your positive comment, Marc:

There are new generations of 3D-Printers on the way, Multilayer-types. The first layer for fast basic build-up, the last layer for high resolution surface enabling direct plating. All the modeled parts here, generated as STL-Files, then can be produced at very low cost and high quality, for all 3D-Printing process is automated.
The most expensive part in time is the modeling. To get the templates accurate it needs the appropriate software, the know-how to work with, some engineering skills, and sometimes more time to get all perfect. But first an original part and the exact dimensions. Once it is done, it can be used infinitely as a standard printing template.
For huge quantity a molded part will still remain the way for lowest cost, by using an electro-eroded injection tool, built-up from a STEP-File.

Looking forward to the coming years, everyone can afford dual rear antennas, D-500 emblems, Lancer Emblems. . . . ., in a nicer finish as NOS-ones (see picture).

 

Unfortunately, up today nobody on this site, was in the position to support the modeling as presented in this thread. - SERGE -

Emblem FUEL Injection 58: A few month ago there was a thread about this, obviously very loved emblem, and very rare. Repros have been in discussion and attempts of modeling presented.

As enthusiast of emblems then I modeled this part on the base of pictures, as no reference samples are available. Thus, all you see is by view and not accurate. The precice dimensions should be applied to this model, if one day disposable.

Now I did some final corrections for present here. The rear of the emblem I have never seen, it is done as I would be the designer. Some details, Front / Rear View,  may help as starter for those who will do repros.

 

Anyway, an exceptional emblem, in reality nicer than just in 3D-RealView. Another challenging game!   - SERGE -  ;)

I found another Picture, downloaded from Danny/57burb (09).

To get the emblem from CAD in Photoshop without any background: save from SolidWorks as PNG, in Options set “remove background” and the resolution. Then imported in Photoshop: place, resize and distort to fit on the picture (10).

With the correct dimensions should look similar to Original. Just the light and surface settings are not optimal (11).  To add: the overall shell is set to 1.6mm, as most other FWL-Emblems. - SERGE -

Hi Vince! I see you first time here - welcome on board of creative and multi-talented people.

For the moment I do nothing with - it's just for fun. If the time has come (to have produced in 3D-Printing in High-Resolution for a shiny surface), I will realise some prototypes. For commercial or business purpose there are many good guys here who would care for. The basics are

accurate 1 : 1 models in 3D-CAD as shown here. 

Now some try to go their own way - still waiting and looking forward to results to come. -

Computer: 2 DELL Precision M6800 i7-4930 MX and two HD DELL Monitors 27" (2x 30" resp). Much less than a FWL-Car! Then no rust and dirty hands.

The applied slogan: Not talk, but simply do-it and enjoy!  - SERGE -

Knight DODGE 59: The 1959 Dodges have their own Knight style. They vary somewhat on the various emblems, due to different supplier at that time.

After a few years I started a new attempt to model the 1959 Dodge Knight, based on the rear / side emblem found on most models. This one will then be integrated on all modeled emblems to come.

And now finally here it is (01)(02)! A crazy exercise: 3D-Splines, 3D-Curved Surfaces, more a graphical than a geometrical modeling, realized mostly accurate. Overall thickness as original 1.6mm. here some details at no chrome for better view (03)(04)(05)(06).

One day the Golden Knight meets the Chrome Knight (07), later on at a Private Party (08).   - SERGE -   :laugh:

Flower Emblem: This is part of the Rear Emblem, for all here working with older SolidWorks or any CAD Software:

Open in SolidWorks (2013 up) the .SLDPRT-File, or import in any SolidWorks or CAD-Software the Parasolid-File .X_T, both as attachment. For animation additional an eDrawing-File .ERPT. Some pictures to look at, all done with this file in SW2013 (Original in SW2016). Pic 05 shows the simple creation of this Emblem (the guides and the planes/intersections):

1. Left Lower Loft, 2. Left Upper Loft, 3. Left Center Loft 4. mirror all for the right half.

 

As I said, just a game!  - SERGE -

Spinner DODGE 59: In addition to the first thread presenting the HubCap, now with the disposable Knight Emblem I can show the modeled Spinner, in Black and Golden (01). The rear side is done as well as the Original (02). In the partly zoomed view details become better visible (03) (04). Finally the assembled HubCap (05). As this is a ForwardLook part, the Knight has to look forward, to fit on left and right side of the car .

 

Thus, all emblems to come will be as well for left and right side, and so the produced parts in 3D-Printing when ready.  - SERGE -  :)

 

 

N.B.: In Front View the Assemled HubCaps appears somewhat different than used to be. This, because in CAD the Spinner is not reflected on the HubCap.

You never stop surprising us with one fantastic 3-D design after Another Serge!

It would be a very cool thing to make the Knights mirrored for the left and right side - many would never notice, but a connoisseur would stop dead in his tracks and drool…..

Rear Emblem (Deck Lid Ornament or Medaillon): This rear emblem is found as well on 1959 Coronets, here presented as model in the original color combination, in White (01). The Rear Views in flat mode for better visibility of the details (02) (03) (04). Here the Front View in Wire Frame for “play” on Photoshop (05).

On an antique scale the original emblem shows a weight of 150g (06), in comparison to the model, material Zinc AS Cast, 165g (07). The difference is due to the constant overall thickness of 1.6mm , illustrated in section views of the model (08), whereas the original emblem is partly thinner.

When golden plated the original white emblem looks more precious (09). My preferred color combs as on my (white) convertible is Gold-Red (10). The 1959 DODGE Coronet has two identical emblems, one on the left fender and one on the right fender, thus one knight looks backward. Here the two emblems for both forward-looking knights (11).

 

Not a rare emblem, but awesome, here perfectly modeled.  - SERGE -

Serge -

I own a good condition example of the gold "star" piece of the Fuel Injection emblem.
If I measure for you ? Send piece to you ? Will this enable you to complete the
template building work ?

Thank you for your offer (first!!!). For a real and original-correct model I need to check, when done,  all corners 3D from edge to edge, and then correct the dimensions I initialy measured. Our eyes are very critical when comparing copy and original. Thus I will only start when I have the emblem in hand.

Now I purchased and wait for the 1962 Chrysler New Yorker / Newport Grill Emblem, as I like it, just for modeling. And I do only when I am in the mood for do it.

On pictures I met various Fuel Injection Emblems, the letters are somewhat different. Your example must not be nice, important the original one. Contact me on sermey at bluewin dot ch. 

Here I started the 1959 D500 Emblem: copy - move - mirror - resize the existing knight to the right position, model the numbers 500 as well in the right position (01). Later comes the body and the final details.  - SERGE -

Good Question Bart.

As you stated, the 3D models offer the ability to reproduce these parts  in original and even in better quality. Can be used for direct injection tooling by electro-erosion technology, for build prototypes by stereolithography, or done in 3D-Printing. All all items in 1 : 1 real size, without any dimension, just by a STEP-, STL- or Parasolid-File.

As emblems are mostly rechromed, the surfaces of the new 3D-Print Technology are still not sufficient, or the fine edges may be removed by polishing. Only bigger parts, as the Rear Antenna Socket, would show very nice results.

Best is producing, as original done, using an injection tool. The initial costs are quite high. At low quantities the part becomes too expensive.

I did already some preliminary tests, but still not sufficient in quality for rechromed parts. Here a Push-Button, 3D-Printed with green filament (01), 3D-Equipment USD1000. Will present here samples as soon they become usable and affordable.

 

The technology develops. For now, the existing models keep the quality all the time, can say a “long lasting conservation” of impressive designs. - SERGE -

3D-Print Analysis: Depending of the layer height, the slices become more or less visible. The bigger the part, the roughness of the surface appear smoother.

This is shown here by a 3D-Printing analysis, on a Knight of the rear emblem, and on the socket of a rear antenna, both 1 : 1, original scale. Applied layer height 0.2mm, 0.1mm and 0.05mm. The left side of the pictures show the resulting striaton lines, the right side the simulated surface as bump map.

To smooth the surfaces, they can be fine sandblasted, then galvanic coppered, polished and final rechromed.

 

Looking forward what will be the the reality  .  .  .  .    - SERGE -

Hi I am Dani from Zurich, and will most probably purchase a 1959 CRL D 500 next spring.

Just what I was looking for that Chevron Emblem. Could these be reproduced, so I could install that on the car ?

They can be nowhere found as originals!

Super great work. So in future all emblems could be reproduced

Dani - keep on going !
