Sounds like scratched building to me.

It will depend on the rules of the particular competition but the usual definition that I see is that if itís not from a commercial kit, it is scratchbuilt.

I would classify parts which are available commercially (e.g. resin or etch) but which the designer has used in his own model as scratchbuilt also, so the same would apply where the designer created CAD drawings and then had them 3D printed. If he had not done do, they would not exist, which sounds like scratchbuilding to me.

Ok,
I would like to know,when it comes to the subject of scratch building in shows,if you make something in 3d,does that consider to be scratch building,if you put it in the scratch building category?
Thank you.
