Afternoon folks, I thought I’d put together some of my new mini project that I thought I’d use to get the hang of my work toys! (Recent new role in a small tools workshop with access to 3D printers and a laser cutter!). Made even better when your team say to you “you can use them for personal projects just if you use materials in stock replace them”. A few quiet evenings later I come across a little 3D printable 16mm 32/45mm gauge diesel loco on thingiverse! Who could turn down a combination of learning the kit and get a little toy out of the process? With the files free to download all I am paying for to start with is some ABS material for our ultimaker3 printers and away we go. My first test print would be the name plate. Small but would give an idea of the detail of the prints possible... Not too shabby! My 2nd item I printed was the base plate and the steps. Steps turned out well but realised afterwards on the base board that there was a better version to print from someone’s upgrade on the base loco kit. Then my latest print was a set of wheels and chassis but that print wasn’t set up properly so didn’t print as expected. Bolts just to hold bits together for now, but this is the progress so far.. a long way to go but i’ll Keep progress coming as I slowly print more and start proper assembly then work on the best power/control options.
