3D model description

EVERYONE can build its own Ecto-1 with the 90 page instruction!

Check out the instructions for free to decide if you are fit for the task! I'm convinced that everyone who can turn on a 3d printer can build this Ecto-1!

Over 60 3d printed parts and 42 LEDs. All parts can be printed on a FDM machine!

The size is about 36,5cm x 12,8cm x 9,2cm (roof of the Ecto-1).
That is about a 1:16,5 scale.

You mainly need the tools and electronics in the picture.

An arduino nano and a DFplayer mini mp3 player.

Thanks to @grafitomi with the build!

You can see the Ecto in action on Youtube:

Or you can watch the build series by LeSanglierQuiRit in 250% size!! Crazy!!

If you have any issues or questions feel free to contact me on Twitter @OneIdMONstr and i will help you with the build!

Edit 07-10-2020:
Fixed an issue with 4_car_floor_mats.stl that could cause problems with some slicers. -> 4_car_floor_mats_fixed.stl
Added the file 34_light_strobe_3x_trans_fdm.stl and 40_siren_top_2x_trans_fdm.stl with slightly thicker walls for fdm printers.

Edit 09-10-2020:
Added round versions for the wheels and stencils.

Edit 20-10-2020
Updated the schematics. Added Pin D13.

Edit 02-11-2020
Added 10_license_plate_2x_fdm.stl for our FDM users.

Edit 17-01-2021
66_windshield_* - 75_windshield_* if you want to print the windshields in transparent filament/resin.

More of my designs:

3D printing settings

Print in 0.1mm on a FDM machine or with a resin printer if possible.
