Re: DCC Developments & Experimentation

@Siegfried Sadly not mine, the video is by tgauge.com showing off their latest developments with RailwayShop. Hopefully the DCC motor units will be available as complete units soon (although soon can be somewhat slow). My interest is in the size and positioning of such chips so I can alter my 3D pri...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Awesome work, would love to do the same! Have you considered the wheel spacing to suit the drive rods in the tgauge shop? I believe its 5.25mm centres. http://www.tgauge.com/product/327/0/valve-gear/9f01f86564ee58806bf5df7210b882bd How do you plan to pick up power? I was considering a permanently wi...

Re: My T gauge adventure

All fair points Neil :) I still find one of the fascinating things about "Tgauge" and 3D printing is how damn small it is (and how fiddely it is!) I have taken a somewhat liberal view to scale caring between 1:480 (typically length) to 1:450 (typically width and height) given the origins of the orig...

Re: My T gauge adventure

Impressive, loving the models, need to finish my traxx loco to pull a few of those. Just a thought, if I may be so bold... Have you considered making a 2part print so the central cill can be glued/clipped/fixed in after, this could be aligned by having the bogie mounting as part of the print so inst...

Re: NEW FREE TRACK PLANNING SOFTWARE for T GAUGE

Given this a try having previously used the free version of any rail.
Pros: unlimited pieces, 3d visualisation, produces a parts list.
Cons: and this is minor but was the one thing i was interested in, no 3d export function.

Re: The Bridge

Woah! :shock: you modelled all that texture? How? Seriously how? Are they truncated pyramids or something? Bricks are things we would never even consider modelling at this scale when making architectural models 3D viz, 3D for Printing or the Old school scalpel scored cardboard. You just pushed the b...

Re: SD70M - Powered

Tollerence looks good, should allow for all manner of movement.
Are you using solidworks? (if so you could animate it before printing)
