    Hi, i'm looking for someone to make a replica of my real truck. it is a 1997 nissan pathfinder, but they are the same from 1996-1998. i do not need any of the accessories or anything, only the body. i know there is a 3d file at cgTrader, but it is not printable, if someone could convert that into a printable STL that would be preferable, but i am open to other options. thanks.

    Hello lane 25,

    after you have purchased the cg trader model I can prepare it for printing for you.
    Normally I do this with 3ds Max and make an offset, if the geometry is good.
    If not Zbrush and dynamesh is always a good option.
    Special attention is always needed for the wheels so the axles dont break.

    Will you need this as a color model or an STL model without color?

    Depending on the detail the cost will be around 100EUR.

    Kind regards

    not really, these files are most often optimized for rendering. They are OBJ files but that doesn't mean you can just print them.

    I suspect Swann is alluding to aspects like (zero) wall thickness, overlapping or misoriented faces, details that may only be a texture. Uploading will tell you if they play a role in your particular case or not.
