The Menards Power Plant smoke stack replacement. I didn't care for the placement or the style of the Menards Power Plant dual chimneys .  This is a two piece stack where one fits on top of the other and can be located anywhere but over the doors.

Read Me... guys, putting together a read me to put on the server... give it a read ... and, comment please.


The O-Scale 3D Repository is a group of like-minded people who are giving their time and money to assist others involved in the O-Scale Model Railroad Hobby that we are so enthusiastic about.  Firstly, *inclusivity* all OGR members have access to the Repository.  There is no need to conduct file sharing vis-à-vis PM… this allows the modest members access to knowledge without having to ask… thanks to the generosity of the Contributors.  Secondly, we would like new comers to 3D printing to have *early successes* and not become frustrated, even by adjusting the scale... and, for modelers not to *have* to constantly reinvent the wheel freeing them up for more creative endeavors.  Thirdly, to keep tightly knit to the OGR community where knowledge, enthusiasm and sharing abound… as is our creed.

How does the 3D Repository work?

It is a flat file server set up as a *Cloud*… it is *not* a website and does not have a URL address.

Do I have to register/sign-up with a username and password to use the Repository?

No… it does not require a login.

Can I view an Image while using the Repository?

No… you can view an image *if* you use NetGear’s Client software *and* login… however, there is no login.   All images are in the O-Scale Catalog which you can download and view.  The Catalog listings are in the same order as the folders/file’s directory in the Repository.

The system is evolving, code may be written in future that will allow image viewing.

Is it only for 3D printing?

Other machine technologies are encouraged and welcomed... i.e., Laser cutting, Engraving, etc.  Please make sure that the files are .slt files or .svg files for laser cutting.

Why don’t you set up the Repository on Thingiverse?

Thingiverse or any other similar on-line service are very good services.

I do not want to sign-up on Thingiverse or any other similar on-line service.  I do not want others within the OGR community to *have* to sign-up for any on-line service.

I encourage *Anyone* who would like to create a Group for the OGR community on Thingiverse or any other similar service to do so.  I will assist you if you need assistance/guidance in doing so.


Note: 10/19 as of 11:22am... we have been live (sort of) for exactly seven (7) days and have 35 Items that are O-Scale 3D print ready in the Repository!  Just think, at 1 file per day from here on out and we would have almost 400 items in *O-Scale* available and ready for Modelers to print, in a year hence.

Thank the Contributors!!!

Thanks Alan!!!   Made the correction above.

Here is the new link...

These links expire after a certain amount of time elapses.  The link will (should) be made permanent in about a week or so... once it is decided where it should reside within OGR.

Update: 10/23 10:43am... Catalog updated *54 Print Ready Items* are now available...

Update: 10/24.  At 8:37am we will celebrate our three (3) week birthday!

In that relatively diminutive span of time... 55 O-Scale, 3D readily available and printable items have been contributed to the Repository... and, OGR has graciously has set us up with our own distinct Forum!

Download the Catalog and some .stl(s), add a Topic (ask questions, provide info) on the Forum and join in.  We live to serve!

As to LASER CUTTERS you need to use .svg files not .stl or .obj  files. Whew!

NOTE: Joanne Fabrics stores in your area may have Glowforge laser cutters for public use; Some of those stores sell Glowforges.

Thanks Alan,

I just went to Joanne's Fabrics.  Their Glowforge Plus is $15.00 per hour to rent plus the cost of the material (Plywood or Acrylic in my case).  The Program they use at this store (Metaire, LA) is *Inkscape*... and, they do sell Glowforge's at this location.

I have about 16 feet of Viaduct I would like to construct... I'll have to do a cost analysis.
