Doesn't look too bad. On my printer a little support would have helped, the print isn't clean underneath the curves.

I'll attack it with a file, sandpaper and primer later.

I'm also seeing if I can reliably print a chassis for it. It's on the printer at the moment!

That does look great on the chassis. I can see that the two parts that came off my print does make it look like they should be there. Good job I kept them.....

Hope the chassis is also a success, then we have a lot of printing to do for a nice long train of them... :thumbright:

By the way I have slowed the speed down to 50 and layer height 0.10. I find that the slower speed and the fine layer height gives a better print, lot slower but worth it in the end I feel.

The chassis came out ok, some tweaks as I printed the base in 3 sections. The axle is also a little short, as I made the chassis a little wide, so it wobbles a little. But I guess these did anyway ;)

Sat next to a standard Binnie Skip for comparison.

I think I'm happy with it. I've posted it, but I feel I need one more print to be 100% happy. You have been warned ;)

Looks good that. Maybe I will wait though until you have done another print. Also can it be printed without the wheels. I like to use metal wheels, so no need to print them. I have downloaded the file but it will take over 5 hours to print, is that how long you print yours for... :thumbup:
