I've just received my first delivery of 3D printed things from Shapeways and have to say that I'm very pleased with the results. Prior to this I'd searched the internet to see if I could find any examples of actual printed objects (as opposed to the Shapeways "Digital Preview") but could find very little, so I'm going to try to fill that gap a little by showing what I was attempting and how it came out. The artwork was prepared on a 5-year old MacBook Air using Fusion 360. In order to spread the delivery cost I produced designs for three different components that I need for models I'm building. There was also the hope that a problem with one of the designs wouldn't affect any of the others. In this post I'll show the designs as screen-grabs from Fusion 360, and then show the printed objects in a following post (if for no other reason than I keep my photos on a PC). Firstly some buffer bodies for O-gauge North Eastern hopper wagons. Secondly, some axle boxes for O-gauge North Eastern wagons. These No. 2 axle boxes were found on a lot of 10T wagons. and finally a pair of crossheads for a O-gauge Midland 0-4-0ST. I had these printed in brass, the others were in Smoothest Fine Detail Plastic.
