Re: A new toy!!!

Hi 'Doug,

long time and all that... :)

Have you had a chance to play with this any more yet?

Was thinking of getting one so wondered if you had any more thoughts on it.

Ta,

Ivan.

Re: Pennsylvania 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive.

Hi Joe, I'm sure there are several people on the forum who would like to design steam train bodies to fit your chassis. I kmow I would. I've done a few in Z scale that I can probably scale down farily quickly. I'd like to pursue a chassis design of my own but given I know nothing about designing cha...

Blender -> Inkscape -> Silhouette

Hi, I've found that it's possible to export models created in Blender, mess with then in Inkscape, and load then into the software for my silhouette cutter thing. Blender has alternative rendering engines... one called freestyle lets you do line drawings which can be exported as SVG files... then it...

Re: Pennsylvania 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive.

Hi Joe,

Oh, I see... I like 3d printed stuff as it misses out the assembly stages and the chances to put things together wrong but then painting is the next problem. Might have to have a rethink... :)

So what's next?

And I'm glad the news show finally went out... would have been a shame to go though all that stress for nothing.

Re: Pennsylvania 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive.

Hope this helps! Certainly does, Thanks Joe. I'm still waiting for parts to arrive, then I'll be able to start measuring and send a print of a chassis off to shapeways... then get back to the waiting... Then I'll be back with more questions... or probably bleating about glueing it all into a solid ...

Re: Pennsylvania 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive.

Hi Joe, thanks again for posting what you're doing. I've started attempting to follow along, so far it amounts to some shopping... and quite a lot of "this is tiny"... :) I've got the etched fret of connecting bits and have a rough idea of what goes where but the finer details escape me. Any chance ...

Re: Class 37 Class 47

Hi Graham, snag with those is the bogies... the chassis needs to sit inside the cab ( so to speak ) but the bogies need to stick out in front under the bonnet. I think some people have stuck hacked up a bogie and stuck half on the front to make a 3 axle bogie but don't know how succesful that's been...

Re: kickstarter funded printer looks interesting

there's some numbers on the olo kickstarter page... X-Y resolution: up to 0.042 mm (quality dep. on device) , Z resolution: up to 0.036 mm (0.12 mm in quick-mode) Even if you add on the cost of a dedicated smart phone it's still a pretty cheap way to a 3d printer. I'm wondering who will be the first...

Re: Which 3d software?

I use blender... it's free, bit tricky to get into but once you've figured out how to switch all the irrelevant bits off it's pretty good. I've recently been messing with the solidify modifier - once you've got a body shell it allows you to resize it but keep the wall thickness the same which is ver...
