Well, it's been WAY too long coming but finally got it done.  A basic 00 fixed chassis for the 812/652 class:

Will upload a EM and P4 one if anyone wants/needs it although for now just the 00 one.  Been so busy.

Sadly on checking the price on this item, as an example only (no offence to Knuckles)  .

 

Shapeways after all their add ons ,want nearly £38 for it.It doesnt mention UPS charges, so it maybe  approx £45

 

Crazy prices. I wont be going there again.

Yeah this is a major issue since the changes.  We need a UK 'Shapeways' badly.

 

I'd like to buy a machine to do FUD/FXD/SFDP yet the cheapest are typically £6-10,000 as I've seen. :-/

I do 3D print the majority of SCC items on my own printers now.  Got two Photon's and a Mars 2 currently and once the top shed is renovated (lots of progress made at last) will be buying bigger hardware.

 

please send email to: [email protected] if you're interested in prints, my designs or otherwise.

 

If you mean will I be buying a FUD/FXD/SFDP - Polyjetting Shapeways' style machine, the answer is I'd hope to one day but I'm a LOOOONG way off being able to afford one.  Maybe ye could all crowd fund it, doubtful!  But yes, it's a goal amongst others.

Apart from print size, what do you perceive the advantages of a Shapeways style polyjet over a Mars or Photon?

My experience with the two materials leads me to conclude FUD etc is dimensionally more accurate and a bit straighter plus parts fit together easier requiring less clearance and offsets in the design process.  Less fold lines and being more rigid helps here n there.

 

I'd say FUD etc isn't as smooth as Photon/Mars prints in most cases and is more brittle.  Pro's n cons like most things.

 

Both materials can give good results with TLC yet the qualities are different.

Furness Railway Baltic 115 Class 4-6-4T Tank   -  3D Prints Released!1073471473_115A.png.699b2c732e4bc5ab038f7081b08864ee.png11515.png.57a23d0a647459b9d5046026ba8e8e5b.png1438664456_1157D.png.e04506233f18d0bf510eaca00101655d.png11518.png.508f3bc024b8f8066a12646f5508d708.png11519.png.14c152952ce29e5257bdb79da2255c43.png2111472273_1156E.png.1c9183e6e4cfec506160240e11fb2083.png

 

 

Now released as a 3D printed body with some chassis options.

I haven't built one yet although the client who initiated the commission tells me the body and chassis are good and is in the process of doing so so I'd think so.   Not like it's my first attempt.

 

Roof lid can be a piece of scrap anything.

 

I've painted the renders in a later LMS livery for potential effect. :)

There are actually two loco bodies uploaded as the client wanted one with a slightly bigger sunroof than the drawings had so I've linked you with the other.
