There is a decency warning with the first photo, it's just the way it printed.....
The second photo shows the one on the left, which is what I have come up with and the one on the right is Rik's setting, or my interpretation of it, sorry Rik.
Again on Rik's also, one of the rivets came off really easy, I guess though that is because I didn't have it on the main body of the print.
Anyway onwards and upwards, hopefully.
Maybe the handlebars need to have supports, so I will try it again with the supports on, although is the a way of just having supports where you need them and not covering all of the print
Close up, they do look a bit rough, well a lot. But from a distance they look ok. I don't know how much it cost to print them, I only used about 1 meter of filament and it took about 45 minutes approximately.
I forgot to write down the time and material used....
2 options for this in Flashprint that I'm aware of:
Put supports in manually by going into 'supports' and instead of clicking on the "A" for Auto Supports (at the top) use the '+' for Add (on the left) to add individual supports - once you have selected this you can click on your model wherever you want to add supports.
Put supports in automatically in the usual way, then use the 'x' for Delete (on the left) to remove individual supports - once you have this selected then any supports you click on will be removed.
I will give it ago after I have done the Grandsons phone case. It's taking 6hrs to do...Mind you it's 6.5 inches, so it has to be tilted....
I have though managed to build a gate, it took me two and halve weeks. Anne was getting very upset with me, so I needed to limit my time on it. Because I haven't been working on TinkerCad much, it's slightly difficult trying to remember how things work on it.
Anyway here it is.
Finished on the printer. I haven't done the hinges though. I thought I would see how it turned out.
Now with most of the raft off.
The second photo is the bottom of the gate. You will see I made a huge "cock-up" by printing it flat. Because I haven't got the two planks that are at 45Deg level with the posts, the raft has been a bit of a pig to get off. There is still some left on, but has this is a trial it will do.
The hinges need to go on, but I will need to get the planks level with the posts. I know I think that the posts need to be the same thickness as the planks don't they.
There is the question of the infill also. You can see it really plainly. Don't know what to do about that.
This will have to do for now until I come back from the hospital later on, that's if I am up to it...
Longest post height 92mm
Shortest post height 71mm
Plank width 5mm
Space between planks 9mm
I am thinking is the correct scale. It was all guess work for me....
Now you've started you'll soon be on a roll. Won't be long before you start drawing and printing your own rolling stock. How about the Flying Scotsman?
Not sure about the Scotsman, but I do want to do my own rolling stock at some point.
It may be some time yet I am thinking
