  • Thanks Rick! A little dark perhaps. The trees should blend in with the greenery.
    I'm really concerned about carting it around from van to display.
    Quite small 6'x6' square for now. Four modules. Not as agile as I used to be.
    Looking for a cart about 4 foot tall that folds up.

    • I'm sure you'll find somewhere there that would help you unload it.
      At home I guess you're on you're own unless you've got a super helpful neighbor like Jerry.

        Not sure the size or style you are looking for Philip, but here are two folding carts that are 4 foot high.

        • Thanks Gents! That 1st cart would be the real helpful. Loading is no problem but the load-in may be a trick. Not sure yet about steps, distance and other barriers if any.

          • Just catching up Philip. The turntable bridge is looking good. I admire folks who can build something that nice.
            Hope you find a suitable trolley to help you out. Amazing the things they're designing these days. Good find Louis.

            • Thanks Rob
              Spent the day trying to finish the mining track. The straight section prints great. Turn-out not sure yet.

              • Philip, nice work with the CAD and print. I don't recall, is the print PLA or ABS? ~mike

                • Thanks Mike.

                  It can be printed on a line fed printer. Those are stronger but the details are not as sharp.

                  It will be SLA printed.
                  Stereolithography (SLA) is the oldest form of 3D printing. It works by exposing a
                  layer of photosensitive liquid resin to a UV-laser beam; the resin then hardens in
                  the desired pattern, and the object is built layer by layer until it is complete. This
                  allows you to print a model with extremely fine detail.

                  Once the print is finished it is rinsed, removed from the build plate and then cured with a UV light.

                  I use the water rinse resin and it works for me. The other resin is rinsed with rubbing alcohol, aka IPA.
                  Covid-19 drove IPA prices way up so the water cure was my choice.

                  Finished mowing and weeding. Pooped for today.

                  • Thanks Philip, I should have added resin as an alternative. Mike

                      • Printed well in gray. The black track is from Grandt Line, the bases of my experiment. Narrowed slightly from the original. Click image for larger version

                          • Congratulations on getting the curves figured out and getting them printed.
