Its very common to hear our customers say “The only way to get a part for this car is to make your own”. Indeed, replacement parts for many older cars simply do not exist.
The bevel gear shown at left is from a 1938 Talbot-Lago “Teardrop” roadster. This gear, which drives the distributor and oil pump on the Talbot-Lago’s engine, was stripped on our customer’s car. The Scansite3D team was able to scan the damaged gear, create a SolidWorks file for future part creation, and make a replacement gear and several spares for the car’s owner.
