septone - primer filler


a general filler spray from a auto store - like auto one etc (came in a green can)

you can buy a filler/primer all in one or buy them separate - depends on the time you have

Nate used an ordinary car primer you get from Supercheap Auto. There are two versions. One being a primer (think this was grey) and the other paying a spray putty (think this was blue) which comes out a bit thicker and you sand it back afterwards (I think Septone was the manufacturer).

What process would the final product be using, RIM perhaps?

Did you use any wire mesh while making the model? Looks outstanding.

If you used wire mesh in this model let me know.

I don't think Nate comes on the forums often now, but to answer your question the images on the first page show the processes that he used to make it. He didn't use wire mesh to create the model.

It seems to late for me to see this excellent work--:D

We are prototype makers, we normally use machine to produce plastic and metal parts. use complex smooth/polish surface to realize high surface quality.

Your method using foam, and whole produce process is so advanced for me, and final quality is also so amzing.

I need to suggest our production manager to improve our technology.

Thanks for share your experience.

Good luck to you, smart person.

While I have a question, since whole process is going on by handle, without any machine, how could this make sure precision? Such as how to make sure cover and bottom can fit well?

What about if we want 10 or 20 sets this products?

Hi angela1983,

Happy to answer on his behalf. Precision is all through templates and ensuring pieces are cut to size accurately. The button from memory is a decal that he has applied to the face, while the screen is a decal placed beneath the cutout.

Due to the requirements of the course, we need to make a visual representation of the design. Our models are supposed to resemble the design with some level of accuracy, but on a model like this, an extra mm or 2 in width, thickness etc... is not going to be detrimental in communicating the product to the examiners.

This wouldn't be the best method in producing 10 to 20 sets, you would be looking more at rapid prototyping for the front cover or something similar in order to provide a consistent level of accuracy.
