              • Phillip,
                Looks like someone left some uncrated engine blocks on the depot deck and the station master is annoyed!

                The one on the left looks like the build didn't finish, but it is hard to see what went wrong with the one on the right.
                Is it the piece that is hanging from the manifold?

                • Philip I'm sure you'll figger it out. The one on the right doesn't look bad at all. ~persist.

                  • Thanks Rick, Louis, Jerry, Scott, and Larry.

                    Scott the one on the left (Depot Deck) was a support failure. The second one is just the thinning and won't print. have redrawn and add gussets, braces and minute supports when it was thin around the intake exhaust. The right side shaft rectifier is also an untested water but sank the water pump into the block for more support. Good thing it's super small. Trying to figure out how to ad the fan and radiator in one print. Btw... the station master is lucky oil hasn't wrecked the deck!

                    Here are the latest drawing with all the junk added on. The more I look the more could be added. I squared the flywheel bottom to add more print surface. Before just the tiny end radius was touching the plate causing the failure. Wish me luck and don't look real close!

                        Thank Mike! This yellow one printed perfect! Still had to shorten the air filter wet element. Also changed the flywheel back to completely round and move the bottom mounts around as the Tamiya dozer has a cast in hump in the way. Next I plan on adding the radiator, fan blades to this in one complete engine pack.

                    • It fits.

                        Philip, the print came out fantastic. The dozer is shaping up to be a fantastic one of a kind model.

                    • Glad I stopped by to see what's going on. That engine looks mighty nice with all those details.

                      • Outstanding progress and work done with that printer.
                        You said awhile back "Les Davis and Ed Traxler are the pros",
                        Well, I'm here to tell you that you are up there with them on the knowledge and skill.
                        Job well done here!
