Two new wagons

Post by philipy » Tue Dec 18, 2018 2:26 pm

Over on Jakes thread a couple of weeks ago, it slightly digressed and I briefly showed a wagon chassis that I had just 3D printed.

I thought I'd now post a couple of pictures of the chassis with bodies on top, just to complete things. Nothing special, just run of the mill wagons.

Agreed.... looking just fine!
On the other thread the brake gear isn't shown, is that printed too?

Run of the mill wagons are important any railway, they are what addle t'brass - and they are very nice examples of the breed.

Traffic Pattern? What pattern? Spuds out; grain in, but cattle, sheep and passengers are a lot less predictable.

Afraid I don't agree, finely detailed professionally finished wagons are what I'm seeing. You've certainly
grasped this 3D printing with both hands Philip.

Lovely work Phillip. Excellent example of what this technology is capable of. I cant wait to see what else comes out of the workshops!

I agree, they look great. It can take an effort to bother with detail on "run of the mill" rolling stock, but it's really worth it I think, as these two illustrate.

I must find the time to investigate 3D printing at some point - I've sort-of got access to a printer at the moment, but I need to download and learn to use some software...

Cheers,

Andrew.

That is one of the best finishes I have seen with a 3D printer, fantastic job :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks for all the nice commenst cahps, but I fear I may have inadvertantly misled you.
The chassis and brakegear were 3D printed as I've said but the bodies were fabricated from styrene sheet and strip. I have a feeling that some of you may have thought I printed the bodies as well, so I apolgise for not being clearer.

No worries Phillip. But it's still some brilliant builds.

Merry Christmas to you and have a very Happy New Year.
