I'm considering an attempt to create a 3D Printable model of a Webber Side Draft manifold for SBC 1/16 scale...My thought are to photograph the Shapeways down draft version in proper scale...then go online to find an actual real manifold Webber cross ram tube manifold for SBC and in Photoshop size the upper tube formation to fit on the Shapeways manifold design...I should be able to copy the carb base flange pattern for down draft and use it for side draft application because I think the bolt hole patterns align though the two carbs are not identical in layout shape or spacing,,, but think the bolt hole pattern was retained.
Since carbs will be mounted the tubes don't require a very thin wall (strength improvement) and by using a to scale part photo adding the tube formation should maintain the scale sizing close enough to pass design of a real life size manifold. All that said here is what could be another problem... I may not be able to find images with proper perspective layout to show various views i.e. top, bottom, front, and back views. To the community how will this affect attempts to make a functional model and what is preferred in the real world for such models to make 3D printed parts? L3
