housing and chassis set A: total weigt = 2,2g
housing plastic = 0,3g
chassis brass = 1,9g

I think it's really fantastic in what level of detail you work!! I also read the whole thread very carefully and I'm really fascinated!
I saw some loco chassis and frame parts are printed in 3D (by shapeways). In one of the last posts you wrote something about:

Both new parts are precision casting products.
The quality is excellent and is very sure the root of a small series.
So please, can you explain a little bit more about the procedure to get such parts? Which manufacturer did you choose and is it the same procedure as like schapeways (upload 3D data and receive an offer...)!? I know there are many questions, but I am very interested on your work!

Hello, Wolfgang,
I have my model made in the jewellery industry using the investment casting method.

I transfer the STL-files and receive the cast model by mail. the models from shapewyas were always only half-finished - I always had to rework them. My models from the jewellery industry can be used without reworking.

This quality is 4 times more expensive. So what, since I broke the 5000€ mark I don't do any more calculations anyway

BR,

Siegfried
