Frank, I'll try it, good idea. Thanks!

Karl, I cut a 2" piece of this filament and pulled back the loaded ABS, inserted the flexible stuff in line, and pushed it through with the restored ABS. Had to run that hotend at 25o degrees to get it to move through the nozzle. Definitely a very small quantity process. It looks like it's going to hold up very well.

Well, I went back to the drawing board with the hinge design not fighting the color issue and instead the size and durability. So here is the latest rendition.



Smaller and a truer to scale. They are a scale 18" strap hinge.


In place and acceptable to me (but pretty tiny to place.


A runaway screwdriver sneaking into a bay.


Back out, the hinges work perfectly. Next step is to design the door opening electromechanics to open and close the doors on command.

Looking good, Jim! Should the hinges be pinned to the building to facilitate opening and shutting?

Pete,

The hinges are lag bolted to the stone. They're a little tough to get started, and find a wrench to tighten them down.

So 3D print a star drill, cold chisel, five pound sledge, lag bolts and a wrench.

You can do this.

Also some guy called Hammerin' Pete up on the ladder tightening the last bolt. Or getting ready to primer the yellow doors for final paint.

Jim, your newly made hinges look great!
I bet they all need a good oiling though.

Pete, Karl, Greg, and Frank, appreciate the comments. I just scaled up the hinges to O scale and want to see what they look like a little larger. I'm amazed at how strong this material is. Maybe tomorrow.

Jim

Jim don't know how I missed this thread.

That is some nice looking work. Really like those hinges.

Thanks Frank, Bruce, & Jerry. I just printed out a small batch of O scale hinges. Looks like the second level (top as you look at them) could be a little shallower. Whattyathink?
