G scale 1:32 diesel Locomotive

Recommended Posts

This is a smooth model. It would be good if you could post a summary of the most important settings: material, printing speed, temp, nozzle diameter, layer height. Might be helpfull for other railroad enthousiasts.


One remark: if this is PLA, do not place it on a hot radiator, as in photo 1, and don't leave it sitting in the sun in a car. It will warp. Don't ask how I know...  :)

This is the prototype.

The final version will be in polycarbonate.

All big parts, they are 7, AA 0.4 nozzle default 0.1 profile.

Gasket from TPU95 for windows, and now tiny details AA 0.25 nozzle default profile.
