OK!  Less than a week in and we have 20+ .slt files in the Repository!

Ray, really, really GREAT JOB!  Thank You!

Testing is basically done (it never really ends) so it's time for anyone who would like to contribute to the Repository to get some files up.  If you would like to contribute please let me know and I will set you up to do so.

Rock On!

Moving forward I have 2D lasercut prints. some are 3D engraved prints. Also combinations of 3D and 2D prints.

Alan,  If you have interest in putting them in the Repository that would be GREAT!!  If not, that's cool too.  I'll add the folders for them... in a bit ... bit over, Done.

These are for my Track Vacuum Maintenance car; an idea that was first proposed by  LEE WILLIS, kudos to him. I am using the same MooSoo vacuum he did but in a laser-cut car of my own design that fits the shape of the MooSoo.

These are 3D prints of the lighted end inspection dome and the scoop attachment; the 4 smaller scoop looking things are for down lights.

Once I have the car completed I will share the .stl s

OK... Very nice conversation with Alan (the publisher) and some very good things will be happening with and about this thread going forward... and, fairly quickly.   I'll defer to Alan on making any announcements.  I'm sure the participants of this thread and others will be very pleased.

In the meantime... lets get some .STL(s) UP!!!!!

Rock On!

Working on the Track Vacuum Maintenance car. completed the scoop.
The scoop worked out great see photo of vac in cardboard simulated car. The small brush that comes with the MooSoo can be attached to the scoop in the small holes on the scoop to brush the track loosen debris on the track before vacuuming..

The control cage did not work out as much, the cage  was too thin. So I increased the diameters.
Also in my rush to build I tend to laser print everything together.
I forget that real plastic models are in parts for a reason, like ease of painting different colors. hard to do when it's one piece.
See below. so I separated the pieces adding pins and holes.

I added video screens to simulate feedback from cameras near the lights(not there). The buttons on the panel  will be very very small.

.stls  coming.

Alan,  I had to do a bunch of physical labor from about 6 til noon... and, I was up @2:30am.  The catalog is easy... but, I suck at it.  Just because one can program does not mean one is good at formatting documents!

I hope that the files absolutely pour-in for the foreseeable future.  I did put up a 2D laser, a 3D Engraver and a 2D/3D Combo folder.  It will probably take 50-75 folders before I can get serious about the Directory Tree... I'm doing a little renaming as we go along.  Ray = HERCULES!@!


Great project. Congratulations!

Two pieces of feedback:

1) I can see no way to browse the items short of downloading each model one at a time. The "image" icons don't work for me, and all the files show generic icons, not images of the item. I am on a Mac, and have tried three different browsers (Safari, Brave, and Chrome).

2) It would be nice to be able to tell how many models are in a given folder. I frequently drill down several levels only to discover an empty folder.

Not complaints at all, just constructive feedback.

Thanks for doing this!
