you should! :)

What did you do for post processing? At first sight it doesn't look 3D printed.

Thanks

Post processing on the barrel was just the muzzle end which was on the build plate.

I am lazy when possible.

On the carriage and wheels a little razor knife work and 100 grit sand paper not a lot.

The key to this is print both the carriage and wheels in black and then go back and paint the wood on, around the bolts heads etc.

I used Testors # 1140 brown, If you do just one coat and the black print shows thru some and gives it a wood look.

I will ad to prints.

Dweldz - Thing looks great!  I love the tip about printing in black and painting the brown over for a woodgrain look.

Nice work!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
