  1. ? And here I was going to say that at least it's not yet another 'Vase'
  2. male bits look odd deformed even. Could copy Michaelangelos' work ? if at a loss for models/inspiration.
  3. Thank you.. note that I'm reducing the scale by 2/3rds , that changes the goal posts. Fixed it by fiddling with wall thickness At smaller size..it Only prints well when vertical. Horizontal Layering produces poor fins... even at finest settings
  4. Clearly you 'have purpose' Good for you .. distributing Techno skills to any who will listen. Great! Many will inhale the knowledge. 'Architecture' is imo only the vehicle here. A 17 by 17 cm Study model isn't worth the trouble to be Blunt ..No designer needs such a visual aid.. certainly as a miniature. Size of the plastic 'model' needs be double or quadruple that for Client purposes.. which is the only real use I could envision. One could cobble up a sketch model of some curious interface for further study perhaps.. but a pencil can suffice happily
  5. Have a decent set of STL files on hand Trying to print them from a Cura Slice and the print messes . Extruder action is smooth then in mid circle it Jerks and returns to the begining of the segment , missing bits and seemingly of a mind of it's own Can't seem to convince it to laydown a simple continous bead. Which to MY mind it should do automatically on a Simple half circle??. What's up with the jerk then stop in the middle action? Printer has been doing 'jes fine' on previous other prints (today) so a Hardware fault is seeming as improbable cause. Do I have a set
  6. Interesting plastic rendering.. But what size is that "model' Presumably it's at best A4 size unless you have a serious printer on hand. Small models like that can often be hand crafted in the same or less time than printing would require As these are throwaways or at best, V limited half life discussion objects. Precision is largely irrelevant given the purpose and intent of the things. Been An architect for 35 yrs I've seen experienced the race to the digital age. Some has been great some... some much less than great :-) Like 'actors' ..architects are V easily p
  7. Adding my test print Slices ... with... the issues I'm seeing Set to 0.1mm and 40 print speed too. Back of Le Rhone Fixed-2.gcode Front of Le Rhone Fixed-2.gcode
  8. Recent efforts to help me get a Large 137mb Radial Engine Model file helped In the least identified the basic problem.. And I ' m grateful for the help. Plodding along in my own fashion .. I 've gotten the complete Engine Drawing as a Mesh File 2 different ones actually.. One via Meshmixer another from a New site: https://makeprintable.com The Meshmix one is a wee bit Klunky /imprecise, the Makeprintable one is noticeably better, not perfect / Ideal .. But Good 'nuff for my purposes. 3 test prints later and the cylinders, only a few of them, seem to have aquired
  9. OK Small issue tho (beyond having to guess where the front door was :-) It won't let me register? 3 separate Email addy's...3 seperate User names.. said All were in use.. As if Will try it again a bit later. hoping traffic at least might lessen
  10. This.. at least I figured out... Inept setup All fixed
  11. Thank.you ! Downloaded it..500 mb a biggie ! Opened and starting to explore it
  12. Erm... None. As above: Komplete Newbie I'm after an engine model for a 1;12th scale DH2 model (ww1 aircraft) I'm attempting to build. Tripped over this Le Rhone engine file and was delighted. sadly it's proven not nearly as simple an exercise as I anticipated
  13. Wow... I'm both Flattered and Humbled by your Efforts.. Thank You! New at this being my only credible excuse :-) I knew that it was a CNC type file and that It would print all the Internal bits, albeit unnecessarily for my needs, I assumed / thought that was unavoidable baggage. I'm only after a simple, looks like the real thing facsimile version.. viewed from the outside Your provided File is interesting.... I had given thought to Printing the individual bits But Frankly had zero idea of how to separate them into pieces I can post printing assemble into my desi
  14. Ooops . thought It might be useful to submit the Original File. Bit big tho at 138mbs Le Rhone Engine.stl Le Rhone Engine.stl
  15. Thank you gentlemen: Here is the STL (it was reduced from 134 mb to 25mb STL by makexyz.com) ( file attached) Can supply the original 138 mb file if wanted/needed.. please advise Oddly the first 3 print tries were very poor but at least it was printing Yesterdays' Slices printed Without any Z .. sigh. Cura doesn't crash but it does seize up for a few mins, maxing out my i7 processor to 100% in process. So somethings amiss somewhere I suspect. Here is a Cura file 65mb. I'm wanting to print this 37.2" diameter (real life size) as a 1:12 scale model) so detail will obvio
