Car bodies designed

3D Engineers have created body designs that have featured on the front page and within the worlds most prestigious car magazines. All our designs are created in close collaboration and with the assistance of the client. They are often one-offs designed for people that are not happy to even have a limited edition of a make such as Ferrari or Aston Martin. Our first design was the Mitchell Special MKII. The design brie

Ferrari 250 GTO 3D scans and body buck

To be able to 3D laser scan one Ferrari 250 GTO is a privilege, but we have now scanned two. This makes us possibly unique on the planet (outside Ferrari?) in being able to make a direct comparison between different cars and move forward with the technical ability to use the data to make a buck/art installation. Early Ferrari bodies differ for a very good reason: the bodies were generally created in a rush, using a m

Bentley Continental style body designed by 3D Engineers

Bentley R-Type – Continental style body design & buck

The Bentley R-Type Continental is one of the few cars to genuinely deserve the label iconic. Production ran to the low hundreds and its style and sophistication have led to an an enormous increase in prices during recent years. However, even though you may not be able to afford an original car, the Bentley R-Type is still readily available and a chassis restoration and re-body is a financially viable proposition. Hav

Ballot 2LS – 3D scanning and body design

Design brief 3D Engineers was required to reconstruct the original car using contemporary photographs and 3D scanning to create a virtual body that could then be refined to match those period images. Critically the rear design of the vehicle was not known. This work was then to be used to re-create the car in reality. “I asked 3D Engineers to help me re-create the car’s original body, which had been removed in

The “Steady Special” – 3D scan, body design & buck

The “Steady Special” is a vehicle design conceived by Ronald “Steady” Barker many years ago and brought to life by a 3D Engineers design. As with virtually every other design we have done, the shape was guided by the client’s needs and desires.

3D Engineers aluminium car body design

A S Motorsport DBR

The Brief To start the project, 3D Engineers was recruited to scan an existing Aston Martin DBR2 replica and subtly manipulate the subsequent data to enable the creation of a vehicle with revised features. In particular the bodywork aft of the doors was revised to create a vehicle that not only more faithfully followed the original car’s lines, but as a useful by-product, also increased the boot volume. Once th

Jaguar XJ13 re-creation, buck design and 3D scanning

  In 1971 the XJ13 famously crashed at MIRA suffering extensive damage. It was subsequently rebuilt with a revised specification. Over the years we have created both versions of the XJ13 in CAD and from this designed the bucks and bodies. Manufacture in aluminium subsequently occurred. Jaguar Magazine featured work we created on the front page of its magazine.
