This seems to be the very first sand mold on Thingiverse. 1 The amazing thing about Thingiverse is that nearly three years after it’s creation people are still coming up with totally brand new things to design and upload. Once a totally new (and open source!) design is uploaded, variations and improvements inevitably start popping up.
Why not a sand mold Mini Cooper, Lamborghini, or Ford Shelby? With a little OpenSCAD magic, it might take very long to create your own mold from almost anything on Thingiverse. For your OpenSCAD enjoyment, here’s how to make a similar style sand mold out of nearly any STL on Thingiverse:
- scale(1.5) import_stl(“gangsta_fixed.stl”);
How else could you make molds using existing STL’s from Thingiverse? And, more importantly, what would you use those molds for?
