Boiler mountings for a new loco
« on: Feb 19 2020 22:23 »
Well, I was rather pleased with these 3D printed boiler mountings which are for a future engine.  I will paint them to remove all trace of the printed lines and texture and they get cast in brass - hardly ever use a solid print as it is.

However, only after printing did I notice a rather basic error.  Can you spot it?

It might help to turn the top of the safety valve though 90 degrees Mike - did you do the CAD?  :-)

Exactly Ian.  No, I didn't do the CAD but I did check and approve it!

They're out of focus?
