Re: Robins Run

Interesting to note that TGauge.com made a bridge in etching that you've been working on in 3D-Printing...
And the "Great Escape" is originally a "Spaghetti Bowl" by Eishindo or somegirl american.

Re: What is this site?

Uwe Fenk seems not to be active anymore in T-Gauge. Every couple of month a post as "T-Pionier" in the still existing but actually dead German T-Gauge Forum . I tried to register there one year ago, but no answer. All of his models are handcrafted. The small steam loco and the jacobs-bogie are fanta...

I hope that those will be the buildings in Station View, Dalmeny, South Queensferry in Dougs' Bridge project. They are so similar to modern continental houses :D

Re: Open now - The Talking T Gauge Shop

That's looking very good, and I've already found some items I'm interested in. But a small problem: Maybe I'm blind, but I didn't find the page to register. I'm logged in to TalkingTGauge.net but not to the shop ;)

Besides would it be nice to have width/length/height data on the different items :)

Good work...And after a smooth sanding and fine painting there would be no optical difference to Shapeway's FUD from - let's say - 2 feet watching distance :D

Re: Would it be possible to have a new range of chassis?

Hi JBModels :) you're presenting a lot of good ideas, but I'm quite sure that you do not realise, that you're in "T" which is 1:450. Your "belt" would be 0.5 mm (millimeters, not inches) wide, your "gear tower" would have to be a cube with an edge length of 2 or 3 mm. Please have a look at the overa...

Re: Printing service......

Sounds good... Thumbs up! The "set of design rules" would force your customers to deal with 3D software which they probably didn't use until now. Challenge accepted, if you can specify an easy to handle freeware or shareware software solution to comply with those rules. Exact measurements and dimens...

Re: New and quick 3d tech

Doug is right... The CLIP-process ist only an enhancement of the nearly 30 years known SLA-process . You can buy SLA-3D-printers as diy-kits for a few hundred quid to run with a standard LCD projector (see this topic ...) The difference is: You will achieve a resolution of 0.03 to 0.1 mm with an exp...

Time to say hello :) I'm Henning from Germany, and I didn't do any modelling for at least a lifetime. When I was young I built some landscapes with tanks and soldiers.
