Re: Mamod/MSS loco cylinders / reversing valve

Hi folks, wondered if anyone has any Mamod / MSS loco cylinders or reversing valve lying around - perhaps as a result of fitting upgraded parts to your loco? I'm looking to use these in my next loco project (an improved version of the SP2 and Meccano based contraption currently in the works). If yo...

Re: Water tank rivets problem

This one shows what I see in Cura with a "non manifold" file and the yellow one is how is should look and does look after Repetior has fixed it.

Why it does it, I have absolutely no idea? :dontknow: What I do know is that Repetior manages to fix most of the files.

Re: Water tank rivets problem

OK, time for an update from me. There are a number of unprintable stl files in a couple of items, I wont go into it too much, but suffice to say Cura is really not happy with some of them at all and refuses to print certain parts as they are not attached. At the moment my only fix is to import them ...

Re: Pen-Y-Bont A new portable garden layout

Looks brilliant, but as Philip said, a lot of hard work to shift about, but worth it as it's quite spectacular for a portable layout. :thumbup:

Scales!!!

OK, so we all know the difference between a scale and a gauge. So with that in mind, do we have a mathematical person that can tell me if I have a drawing in a scale of 22.5:1, what percentage do I need to multiply that to get it to 16mm (which is about 19:1 I think)? The formula for working this ou...

Re: Using OpenSCAD to produce drawings for 3D Printing

A very well done. I assume you are a programmer or have done programming? Thanks Steve. I'd certainly not call myself a programmer but I did do a module on Java as part of my masters, most of which I've forgotten, but I still tinker around with PHP. I'm not honestly sure if this is helpful or not w...

Simon

This is absolutely amazing work, totally mind boggling for me as I am no programmer, but if i was I can certainly see some distant advantages to this, particularly for reusing the code.
