    I'm the designer of the Torq Roadster and I have the original full size CAD files. I've shrunk the model to about a 7" size. It's still a pretty complex model and I know still has a lot of holes. I'm unable to figure out how to fill/repair the holes with netfabb, hitting repair doesn't seem fix them. There's probably several internal surfaces and possibly some untrimmed ones. There's a screen shot of what I've found on Netfabb.

    Attached are also a bunch of screenshots of the model. All surfaces are bigger than 2mm. The steering wheel is about 2.25mm thick. I suppose the details in the drivers fingers would be lost, but that's ok. I'm guessing supporting this vehicle on 3 wheels would be risky structurally, so I've added 3 other subtle supports underneath. The colors will be slightly different from these images, but how do you specify each of the colors?

    We're hoping to have a couple models ready to be in San Diego for April 5th (which will probably be tight).

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    May I suggest running that thru cloud.netfabb.com?
    but.. even in the standalone version.... While in Repair mode, click the Actions tab, and then both of the "Close Holes" buttons.

    It was so bad it took me around 40 hours to fix it! :D
