So I was looking at the Korber #703 Radio Station & Tower w/ Flashing LED. Nice tower but not like the towers around here. First it's square most towers are triangular, second it uses the old Lionel illusion-al x-bracing pattern; where X-bracing is not used but they brace in one direction on one side and the other direction in the opposing side; so that gives the illusion of an x-brace.
However, most towers use chevron-bracing not x-bracing
I thought I can do better. So Using Rhino 6 I designed this to be 3D printed.
All of the bracing is chevron styled bracing tubing.
This is 33" high with a 2-1/4" base will be 3D printed in 7 sections.
closer details of the bracing.
I will be adding at top piece for an LED , side anchors for cables to stay the tower and an assortment of antenna shapes , dishes, poles, etc.; logos for a mythical radio station like the LOOP.
I will be refining this a bit more and will follow up with the actual printed model.
