TEMPLOT 3D PLUG TRACK - To get up to speed with this experimental project click here.   To watch an introductory video click here.   See the User Guide at Bexhill West.

  • The Plug Track functions are experimental and still being developed. Some of the earlier pages of this topic are now out-of-date.

    For an updated overview of this project see this topic.   For some practical modelling aspects of using Plug Track see Building 3D Track.

    The assumption is that you have your own machines on which to experiment, or helpful friends with machines. Please do not send Templot files to commercial laser cutting or 3D printing firms while this project is still experimental, because the results are unpredictable and possibly wasteful.

    Some pages of this and other topics include contributions from members who are creating and posting their own CAD designs for 3D printing and laser-cutting. Do not confuse them with Templot's own exported CAD files. All files derived from Templot are © Martin Wynne.

Just arrived in the 3D printing den to add to the strange collection of marbles, cheese slicers, pastry brushes, etc. are these:

It's obvious when UV-curing the chairs in the Mercury unit that most of the UV light is going to waste above their heads. I'm intending to stick these self-adhesive 2" dia. disc mirrors around the inside of the cover, and on the turntable. That should spread the available UV light around and cure the chairs much more quickly and evenly.

Or at least, that's the theory -- I haven't tried it yet.

p.s. the mirrors are extremely bright and shiny. However that might not be immediately obvious if you haven't thought to peel off the protective film. :)

Martin.
