Board index Talking T Gauge Forum 3D Printing for T Gauge

Here's the place for discussions about those 3D creations for Tguage...and lets not forget the trials and tribulations of designing and printing.

Can you tell what it is, yet?

A bit of work yet to improve the printing quality and stop the support ripping off parts of the model when you remove it.....but here's the current state:

Wow, great stuff, well done Doug, a standard London Routemaster.
Can't wait for this to be released, the answer to my prayer.
Thank you so much Doug.
That's just made my day.
Best regards, Noel.

Looking good!

I had been planning to do one of these myself - but as so often ends up being the case I have not started yet. I do see a lack of wheels (I am sure you had already noticed that :lol: ), but I think it is highly likely you can get these added before I even get to start mine.

Really coming on well Doug, love it.
Seems it won't be long now before I have some of my fleet for the London layout.
Without wishing to appear ungrateful in any way, could I ask you to consider a mod to add to this model to make the RML version, ( Routemaster Lengthened) as there were at least as many (if not more) of them than the standard length vehicles.
The RML was a cut and shut job with a half length window grafted into both decks in the centre of the vehicle.
I know virtually nothing about 3D cad drawing, it looks a very small mod but probably turns out to be a real pain to do, but it would be nice to have it if possible please.
Keep up the wonderful work Doug.
Best regards, Noel.

Hi Noel

I've done the 3D work for the RML version....it took about 15 minutes to create! Haven't tried printing it yet.

I'm hoping to get the two versions ready and available in the shop at the same time......but I'm not going to guess when as I have a busy few non-T Gauge related weeks coming up.

Hello Doug.
That's great news, I'm glad the mod was that easy.
Thank you for all your efforts, I shall patiently look forward to their release, whenever you get the time to complete them.
There's no hurry on my part as the layout is only just moving from the planning to construction stages.
I'll post some photos of my London Transport rolling stock soon, to whet the appetite.
Best regards, Noel.
