    Another FDM printer

    . To my surprise I've ordered another 3D printer. A second FDM printer to join the BIBO. This one, for £88 on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08V85TH34/ There are cheaper versions available on eBay, but see this note...

    3D FDM Printers!

    I somehow seem to have found myself getting seriously interested in buying a 3D printer. It'll have to be FDM as my tiny flat would not cope with the space or smellies of resin printing. As it is, I'm wondering where on earth I could put even a filament printer! Martin randomly pointed me at...

    Rail filing jigs - 3D printed

    I'm pleased to report this idea has worked out well. :) Here's the STL for one half of a 1:5 vee rail filing jig for C&L code 75 bullhead. Overall size is 145 x 28 x 10 mm: And 3D printed: Each half took about an hour to print, the total cost of material for both works out at 86p. I used...

    Messin' With Resin - 3D printed track

    As my birthday is next month (not saying which one) and the price of resin 3D printers has dropped a lot I took the plunge into resin and ordered something called an Elegoo Mars 2 Mono. Should arrive Saturday. The build surface is a bit small but the resolution is pretty good so it will be...
