Re: UV light failing?

Funnily enough, thats the other problem that I mentioned in my earlier post. :) I have had it in the past but not for a long time until yesterday! It occurred yesterday after I relevelled and rezero'd the plate. I suspect that the zero isn't quite right and the first layer is a minute fraction belo...

Re: Printing thin resin sheets

As a 3D printerer, I have a foot in both camps. I will combine plasticard with 3Dvprinting where I feel it's more appropriate. As it happens, I have done this for roofs of locos, coaches and vans. But I have also 3D printed roofs as well. With something as thin as this, I would be inclined to use pl...

Re: UV light failing?

Interesting and useful info, Philip. Thanks. I've only ever used AnyCubic resin so not had that sort of issue as yet. The only problem I've had is some prints sticking to the base of the tank. I've not yet found a solution to this but it looks like spraying the base with PTFE spray helps. Just await...

Re: Printing thin resin sheets

The only thing I can think of, clutching at straws, is that the suction created by this relatively large flat plate when the build plate lifts is enough to dislodge the embryonic bolt heads. Does that sound feasible and are there any suggestions or cures? That does sound feasible. If it wasn't so t...

I just love trains and had the money and inclination at the time. Oddly enough I have moved back into planes as trains have left me a bit burnt out with everything that's been going on in my life.
Hence the avatar? :lol:

Re: Why do we do it - poll

Thanks to all those who have responded to my poll so far. There's still a week or so left if you've not yet had a chance to tick your reasons for playing with trains creating a miniaturised railway world in your garden :D

Re: Why do we do it - poll

Want to be a "real" driver. So sitting on the loco is much closer than running beside an O-gauge tinplate loco, burning my fingers in the process. (no offence meant). Sitting on the tender of my LBSC Minx, putting the coal in, working the injector, feeling the power of the loco, hearing the sound c...

That looks very good. I must admit that I've been a bit sceptical about the artificial grass in the past, but it does work extremely well in these shots.
Just what I was thinking. The artificial grass seems to work well in this situation
