The test-prints for Lessebo (and JGJ bogie) arrived today! Both good and bad news ..

The good, again amazing feeling to see your own creation like this ..

The Bad, several smaller changes needed, but that was expected.. I made several walls to thin to keep down costs, but doesn´t work, need to add more material. Also supports are needed inside the tanks. BUT, no design changes needed on the outside, only for making the print better. As you can see there is a lot stepping on the sides of the locos, this has to do with both to thin walls and Shapeways bad solution on print direction - both which I can change for next print, which hopefully will be final...

The design turned out well also on the bogies, but the construction needs tweaking.
