Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Thanks, Alan. It might be better without those details but Linny designed it. I just printed it. :) EDIT: Just editing to add a thought based on what Bill said below, at least with my own designs I like to put most details on, even if in some areas they are a little thick due to tolerances or whatev...

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Not the best picture as white is the very devil to get a good shot of but it's a LSWR Coach Side printed at 50 microns as a test for someone.

Based on this at least I'd think the whole thing would turn out nice.

Re: Crab Comet conversion

Ignoring the fact it's 00 and the chipped paint. This post 1939 version of a Gordon I bashed up has its drain cocks scratch built from 0.45mm brass rod with little 0.7mm bits. Just a quick soldier bash. A bit rough around the edges but I'm happy with the result even a decade or so later. Maybe try s...

Furness D1 (minus cab) with a particular chimney and safety valve plonked on for effect. Chassis, smokebox door, buffers, backhead controls and some E1 splashers.

Like buttons. Eeeugh, glad we don't have 'em.

Officially 115 x 65 x 155 mm for the Anycubic Photon. Not massive yet most things are printed at a bit of an angle anyway to reduce suction.

Re: 3D printing - resolution and finish

PS. I did some searching and noticed that SCC have a scaled down to HO, UK loco body in their catalog. Taken together with the above, that rather opens up a possibility of viable UK HO, or even P:87, for UK outline, without waiting for a mainstream UK manufacturer to offer a decent range of models....

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Must admit I'm interested in trying these other fillers out. Been using the two I mention forever and haven't branched out to try new stuff as they seem to work well. As to paints and 3D printing, on a personal experience enamels have thus far posed no problems at all. The fact that the Photon resin...

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

The Photon printed items look very good. One of the issues I have with Shapeways is that the Digital Representations shown for many items give no indication as to the likely surface finish. Given their prices I am not willing to take the risk purchasing a model as a friend has done, only to get som...

Re: Ash pit vs service pit

May I presume that for sheds with no pit yet there being an ash pit outside the crew just had to oil/repair engines with ashen boots?

I sort of would like to be more clear on things too. Such things may be obvious to most though.

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Well, it's resin so I'd say its resin quality. :D Apart from it being lighter I'd rather resin over white metal any day, that is my personal bias though, everyone has a preference. White metal can have a slight grainy look to it and thin details are harder to achieve the definition in some areas suc...

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Shapeways prices I've never been happy with since inception and recently they have been increasing prices for FUD/FXD stuff even more on some items so they essentially are killing everything off for a large number of people.

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Maybe one day, got quite a lot in the pipeline currently.
Unless someone is willing to pay for designing, in which case it could jump the cue.

Concentrating mostly on getting things Photon printable at the moment though.
