Hi I wanted to share work in progress of my latest commission. I know there are many miniature railway enthusiasts on Shapeways that would appreciate this project.

My client is in New Zealand and I'm in Edinburgh, the other side of the world, this is a fantastic example of how the internet facilitates global collaborations. I hope to share pictures of the printed engine soon.

All the models can be purchased from my clients shop

The model is of a EA Class New Zealand Railway electric engine.

I'm in awe of the model, and your skills, but I have to ask why 1:20th scale? It seems an odd one for Model Railway equipment.

Hi, just wanted to share some pictures of the prints, waiting for them to be painted, the detail is amazing.

Looks cool!

Put a thin layer of primer on the model and make a picture again, you will be able to see all the details on the model Very Happy

there has been some nasty banding on the side, hopefully some sanding will get rid of it.

That's some very nice work, VirtualV!

Why did you cut off the side handrails and air horn?

The back of the loco was at the bottom of the print - that caused the fuzziness on the sides and front where support material was deposited to hold up the wind deflectors on the cab windows and the front handrail. I'm not sure what caused the diagonal banding on the side - did you contact customer service about it? I don't think that's supposed to happen anymore.

Thanks for your comments and sharing your printing knowledge. I think the horn and handrail may of been removed to make painting easier, I'll have to check with client.

The horns and rails have given way through handling and shipping,I reshipped them to painter and possiably didnt do good enough job packing wise Sad Details like them are quite hard to see before any paint is put on them(or its poor eyesite!)
These prints where done @ august last year,so banding shouldnt be like these if printed now probably.When all the bugs with FUD are ironed out I may replace these but at the moment Im more than happy with them.And these where my fisrt experience with 3dprints.

cheers
Stu

The last FUD and FD I received were good; unfortunately they weren't packed decently and got damaged in transit. Your handrails and pilots won't survive shipping the way it's currently done by Shapeways.

The only way you'll be able to avoid lots of support material being printed on the outside faces of your loco is to break it into separate sides and roof pieces. I did that with the attached model and it printed nice and clean. The floor, sides, underframe and ends tab and slot together.

If handrails etc can't survive in transit they are not likely to survive finishing and normal handling.

Hi Guys,Just to clarify my earlier post.The handrails where all intact when I recieved them from shapeways,all barone tiny one.They came off after I got them,not being carefull enough with the great detail,realising the detail is there......after knocking it off Embarassed
The good thing is they can be replaced with "aftermarket"detail bits.
My carriages have fine handrails on them and they have survived,production,handling,shipping and me.

Cheers
Stu
