A Fork In The Road - or Henrik´s new Workbench

My new 3D printer has changed so much. Since I can print whatever I want at home, in hours instead of ten days or more, I do not have same interest for Shapeways and my Web-shop there anymore (I will keep my shop but it will not be updated in the same man Aug 27, 2018 : My new 3D printer has changed so much.

Print Experiments

Here is some experiments from last night. Second two last images shows what happens when the supports are to weak and loose grip with the board..

Box repaint

I was not happy with the red paint on the box wagons so they got repainted last night. The red paint will however be great on the powder wagon. The tankers on last image needs some sanding. Often this does not show until first paint is on, like here. Sep 13, 2018 : I was not happy with the red paint on the box wagons so they got repainted last night.

Decauville is printed!

Already the first print of the body is fully ok, will only add some more supports for the cab opening in the drawing, plus a bit more space there the motor goes in. The frame could be used as is also, but I am not satisfied with how the cylinders sits, ..
