i split the main body into three. the base the sides and the roof it makes it much easier as all parts can be made "more square" and also if you an weld it will barely be noticable afterwards

If you use solidworks and are able to get it on a laptop, i would use that. I 3D printed mine

@ferdia108 I 3d printed a good portion of my car and still got a H1, I think that the examiners like that as it shows a wide range of skill. My school didn't have a printer for students so I built mine for a couple of hundread euro last year just for this purpose. I have to say it was worth the money. If you want u can design the parts and send me to them for printing, I'll only ask for the money to cover the postage.

Thats pretty cool that you made your own. Thanks for the offer also I might take you up on it just for some small final bits. Would solidworks files work with it?

yeah, solid works files would be perfect. i can convert them to the file types the printer uses
