Hi everyone, 

Is time to share something.

Here are some great files of an X8 3D laser scanned. This job was done completely for Free from some cool guys in Australia, for help us to participate to the Outback challenge. Unfortunately we did't make in time the prototype of an modified X8, so we will need to wait until 2014. But I the meantime I want to share with everyone this, so anyone can 

create or modify parts for the X8 having a good reference.  

The total folder size is about 133Mb with all the components of the X8. Here is the Dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/d0e9xr277754akb/_wb44sqFzp

Also Is worth to have a look at the website of the guys that made this possible, you may find interesting (I'm not affiliated in any way with this company). http://www.3dspatial.com.au   

NOTE:  If dropbox link is't working anymore, please check in the comments for an updated one

Are there any ideas how to print this files in to a model??

I need the fuselage after the last crash as the foam is so dense i can't repair it...

@Guy McCaldin I tried the water several times. It did get a little bit better, but still I'm not satisfied with the results. I'm thinking i could build a flying wing out of it, no fuselage, just two wings together. I would rather fly with fuselage though.

Maybe some CNC would be an option?

@Guy thanks man! That's a big help. This foam would be good, although i think i would also laminate it. So maybe i will just go with the setup from the picture, that you attached. Thanks again!
