Thanks Ray!  and OH Crap Ray!  I'll fix that when I get back!

Headed out to my *yard* (business) to batten that down.  I don't know if this makes any sense at this point but I think anyone with interest, questions, opinions, how -to's etc.   Can certainly start to put up some topics here (I'm really sick of looking at my face).   Yes, this is a very small niche community but we are definitely generating a lot of traffic.  Don't be shy... if we didn't want to assist we wouldn't be doing this ...there are zero, 0 stupid questions.  We will get to machines/software/materials discussions in fairly short order... I hope!

I'm off... l8r folks!

I have a question for the group.  I have been making O scale 3D prints for a couple of years.  However I consider my quality standards for my use as 'good for background' use.  So here's the question How good is good enough for posting?  Is there some notation that I can but on things I post as good for background?  IE I have a machine shop that sits in one corner of the layout, and you can kinda see inside.  So I made some lathes, work benches, etc.  They are NOT super detailed they simply represent what 'should' be there.  From a distance, they do the job.  Some examples.  Russ

Russ,

Posting is absolutely fine.  However, it will indubitably be forgotten/lost with the passage of time.  We are attempting to remedy that with the Repository.  Having the files in one location (actually, 3 as my servers are triangulated) keeping the files organized in directory format and the files consistent helps enormously compared to trying to find a post a year or two down the pike.

If you would like to post your .stl/.stp/.svg/.jpg files please do so... I think your work is great!  If in addition you would like to place your files in the Repository and Listed in the Catalog that they may be easily available in-perpetuity send me an email and I will set you up... you will be Credited for all the items you have placed in the Repository.

Thanks

dennis

Whoops!  To get a primer on the Repository and how it works... please read the first post here...

3D Repository - Access & Information

hold*on,

Can you provide more detail?  You can post it here if you like.  The more detail you can provide (especially *measurements*) the more likely it is that someone will respond favorably.  Building custom parts via multiple emails with multiple parties can be very, very time consuming and even more so if there isn't sufficient information to begin with.

Have you downloaded the Catalog?  If not, here is the download  Catalog Link

Once you have the Catalog look at the photos *especially the ones with the measurements* ...and if you can provide detail *somewhat* close to that you will probably receive a favorable response.  Also, if you could attach a photograph to your post that would be helpful as well.

Yes I would say post, those are actually quite good, I would have no problem seeing them on my layout. The other thing is that if you post an stl file it might be able to be printed on a later printer that will produce the same part but with higher quality and or if also posting an stp file it could possibly be upgraded or even redesigned for another application. I think it's all good and would like to see you go for it.

I have some new clear resin i want to try on my new Formlabs 3 printer. Right now I am printing gray resin, but the FL3 has interchangeable resin trays so going to clear is just changing a tray.

But I do need dimensions in decimal units not fractions for a more exact build.

Alan... Decimal ...as in inches or millimeters... or, can your program read/write both units?

...Let us know how you like the clear Alan.  At some point I've a Sharknose with a missing windshield that is no longer available...  I need to pull the one out of the second A unit and measure it up.

A new *Contributor* has arrived!!!

Thank you, Russ for sharing and caring about the present and the future of our hobby!

The Repository and Catalog have been updated...

You can always email the Contributor (Ray in this instance).  All the contributors are extremely helpful and pleasant to communicate with.

I don't see anything wrong with the file in any of the programs I am using.  I don't know what hardware/slicer/cad and settings your friend is using... it may be helpful to provide that information so that the Contributor (or, anyone else here) can provide your friend with the best feedback possible.
