Re: Creating full body decals

Just a suggestion since Mattd10 said he wanted some high quality ones. He mentioned the burden of paying too much, I just suggested trying Railtec who are at the forefront of decal making and have the cheapest prices around. At the end of the day it's down to the printer. I don't see any harm in ma...

Re: Creating full body decals

Have you tried Railtec? Their prices are great and they are very helpful.

Re: Creating full body decals

Since T gauge is very small, I wouldn't go to an extreme length of realism. I would just use MS Paint and ask the printer of the decal (usually an external source) to re-size it. And as you said, it can be done on SketchUp, just need to paint the sides and take a screenshot then re-size it. Cheers!...

Re: UK outline stock

Hi mattd10,

The Class 313 looks lovely. I see that you've even hollowed out the windows. Are you planning on actually adding windows or something. I've not done that on any model. But I will have a bit of etched parts.

Cheers!

Re: UK outline stock

Quick update: I've completed my class 313 and have uploaded it to shapeways. This has (as usual) thrown up a bunch of errors and areas where the wall thicknesses are less than ideal. Unfortunately where it's a fairly compact unit in real life it's hard to squeeze in the extra space without risking ...

Re: UK outline stock

I think we all look forward to seeing some photos of your first loco. Do post some to show the development as it progresses. Sure will, I will be starting two threads in due course. The first thread will be only for the various projects and their progress. The second one would be only for finished ...

Re: I.materialise: 3D printing in wood.

Hey,

I'm sorry, I'll have to disagree with that, depending on the cost of 3D printing I'm sure you can make a ton of things for T gauge. Large buildings without fine features, stone bridges, stone viaducts, custom ramps, the list goes on.....

Cheers!

Re: UK outline stock

I am please to say that the progress is good and it should be done by 4th July 2015. Nice to hear your design is in its advanced stage....a few questions: How will the finished loco be available? What exactly will it be? A shell for a motorised chassis? If so, which one? A shell for a non-motorised...

I.materialise: 3D printing in wood.

Hey,

Seems like they have a new material on offer. It's trial and it's WOOD!!! So maybe 3D printing building kits and scenery items then? :P

Re: Shapeways - Frosted Extreme Detail (FXD)

Hi NeilM,

I am very much aware that the specs are identical to FUD apart from the bounding box but I wanted to know if the specs have been more refined? Has the detail limit reduced and wall thickness reduced as well? (Refer to the latter part of my post.

Cheers!

Shapeways - Frosted Extreme Detail (FXD)

Hey, Whilst I was aware of the FXD announcement when it was actually announced, I was not aware of the various printing specifications for it. However by luck I did stumble across the page today and this is what I saw. Bounding box: 50mm x 50mm x 200mm Min. supported wall thickness: 0.3mm Min. unsu...

Re: UK outline stock

Good point mattd10. I will however design the models to be able to be non-powered and powered compatible then.

Re: UK outline stock

Hi Matt, Thanks for the well wishes. Indeed I have gone for the non powered variants for the accuracy because my views are actually just the opposite of yours. Well you can correct me if I am wrong (so feel free to do so) but my understanding is that a few mm in T 1:450 scale is actually rather alo...

Hi, Lovely work there mattd10. I myself have a small list of British stock I want to design. I've been after some more prototypical and accurate British stock. So here is a list of stuff that I am going to design in the coming months. - Class 08 (non-powered) - Class 20 (non-powered) - Class 31 - C...
