Lamy Safari 3D-Model

Recommended Posts

As exercise for a CAD software in 2018 I created a 3D-model of a Safari fountain pen. It's not perfect, but it was a fun thing to do.

The model will be made public domain some time in the future.

 

Here's a sneak preview of the model. I'll have to do some final work on the nib before it's ready. Each part can be places separately, like a real pen. And I'll convert it to a broadly used format.

Is this a program that can make Safari pens in 3D printers?

Basicly all CAD-Programms can produce models that can be printed. This model isn't meant to be printed though. It's just for renderings. You won't get a working pen out of this. I actually build in some flaws so it would not be a template for fakes.

 

I had it 3D-printed once though. As a 2:1 cut-open-model of a Lamy Safari pen. I'll post a picture.

holy cow that looks so real! 😲 Even the light reflection; i feel old.

Don't be too harsh on yourself. Technology has always been faster than us. 😅

As promised a 3D-print of this model. It's in 2:1 scale and was made on a powder printer. Quite brittle, that's why I made a base out of filament for it to secure it. Had this made when I had the opportunities for some free prints in 2018. 😁

Yet another teaser. Showing the main body parts in an animation. Even tough it looks like the barrel screws on it is fake threading. I hadn't have the right tools to measure everything back then and I did not intented to destroy a pen for that. That's why some parts are a little bit crude and the fit isn't 100%. But for digital purposes it should suffice. The complete model will be set free soon.

Is the pen pink and the clip mauve? I love those colors, I hope Lamy will make a mauve Safari soon.

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?
