Brilliant roundhouse! Will you share the stl file or post on Shapeways? I'm sure other modelers would like one!

That's an interesting point re IP and 3d scanning....it could easily reach a similar status as "zone 51" with all the discussions...

Here's one interesting article that probably sums up the current situation: https://www.wipo.int/wipo_magazine/en/2 ... _0006.html

That turntable is great! I'm contemplating a small engine terminal display and would like one. Is it a worm gear drive?

The turntable is beautifully done. How are you controlling it?
