Product Description
Test run die for N scale corrugated die. 

Corrugated Sheet Metal: The corrugations are described in terms of pitch (the distance between two crests) and depth (the height from the top of a crest to the bottom of a trough). Pitches have ranged from 25 mm (1 inch) to 125 mm (5 inches). It was once common for CGI used for vertical walls to have a shorter pitch and depth than roofing CGI. This shorter pitched material was sometimes called "rippled" instead of "corrugated". However nowadays, nearly all CGI produced has the same pitch of 3 inches (76 mm).

This is the Prototype for Ver 3 of the die. My earlier versions had a corrugation profile that matched the real thing .. and it didn't work as I wanted. The aluminum foil springs back about 1/2 way leaving sheets with low corrugated profiles (actually this matches the 'rippled' sheets which were used on vertical walls). I doubled the vertical size of the corrugations for this version. That *should* allow proper forming of the aluminum foil. This being a test print there are dies for both the regular and double pitches.

Note: These dies are so small it is difficult to hold them while pressing the foil. This is my solution.

Safe Harbor Statement: I have placed these parts in BETA. A BETA is not just about printing success but about the design also. This means that during the BETA phase by ordering these parts you are essentially a BETA tester and are working with me to improve the product.These have been successfully printed and tested by a customer. He reported problems with using heavy duty aluminum foil but was happy using thinner/regular foil. The corrugations are so small you see ..
