Why would you use CAD/printing to do a prototype bumper design? Sure it helps for visualization but, clay sculpting is still much more used even in oem production given the cheaper cost and potentially less error labor (since you sclupting over the body you'll have less chance of having something not line-up/work/fit.)

I think this should do the trick. Much more FT-86 OEM-ish... with dash of LFA, Yaris Hybrid-R & axe murderer. Front has integrated splitter(s) under the uber side air intakes (Would use them strictly for brake ducts as one can never can have to much cooling)





Fucking love this

Potential Solution

Two weeks later and this has had me thinking... Why not go the distance and put this mental conception of exotica into physical from? Now heres were the problems arise...

A) I know how to used CAD (wether its Rhino, Cheetah 3D, Autodesk etc..) but obviously I don't have access to the base OEM Front Bumper file to edit, thus attempting to do a rough fit is a no-no (even if theres free CAD files that are close).. For these type of things one need OEM or pretty much nothing else -.-

B) Manufacturing is the next biggy. I know there are 3D printing machines but those tend to be expensive for well... a college student, but then I could always go the optimistic route and see if a shop that has access to OEM CAD files, would make the bumper and not charge me a kidney & lung to afford it..

C) Probably going to cost a hefty penny....


Thoughts on this guys and or gals? Any constructive input wether it be negative or positive is more than welcome

I work as an engineer, one of my responsibilities / areas of expertise is reverse engineering with 3D scan data. We use light based laser scanners to pickup 3D data (with up to 0.002" accuracy). We use a suite of software that enable the world of scan data and CAD to merge- where you can create a parametric file based on a scan.

Needless to say, I take one home basically every weekend. I've had a lot of ideas for my BRZ and bike but I haven't had the time or artistic aptitude to CAD something like this. I can't offer this for free but I can tell you that it's possible and likely under 3k if you take the bumper off yourself and don't require a fully reverse engineered part (the final part would be a STEP, not a surfaced parametric file).

lmk if you want any more info on this, awesome design work so far!

I don't know. His username screams Bot/Spammer but he has some details in his post that are almost relevant.

It is pretty neat... especially since Aim Gain just put out this bumper a few months back using the GR Supra reverse/brake light.
