3D printed items by Ngineer

As some of you may know I enjoy making 3D models and have them 3D printed. I make most of my models available via my Shapeways "shop". I thought I'd share with you guys what I am working on:

Woohoo!
I finished my N Scale Kwik-E-Mart. I used anti-static bags for the windows. For now I don't think I need to make an interior.


Thank you, come again!

For my industrial building I made some louver vents in various sizes

Just a tiny anouncement today, the Quad is finished. These are used for fun, but also by maintenance guys, surveyors, weedkiller specialists etc. These are sold per 2 in a protective cage since they are small and delicate.

My factory does not have a loading dock (yet?), so I needed something to get the forklifts into the trucks. Forklifts ramps can be found at many industrial sites, so I made one (link here)

Hi all,
I made a few new things. First off is a very detailed bridge girder with loads of tiny rivets. It took some experimentation to see how small I could have the rivets printed. The only drawback is that the rivets make the print file really big (lots of polygons), so I can only print one girder at a time.



I also made some waste compactor containers that can be found at lots of modern industrial buildings. These are used for compacting light and bulky waste like cardboard, plastic and other packaging:
Waste compactor #1, this one has a closed lid.


Waste compactor #1:, officially used for wet waste as well


And some ACTS containers, which are used for hauling all sorts of waste:

Cool stuff!  It is really amazing to witness how the 3D printing is changing the N scale landscape.

How about thinking inside the box with stucco buildings , and or wall sections ?

I am quite busy with other stuff at the moment, but if you have a good example I'll look into it. No promises on how soon I can get this done though.

I say this because of the stucco effect that 3D printing produces without even trying . Just joking around .

Including the very evenly spaced raster lines (or geometrical patterns)?  That's some stucco...  :|

It worked for the Kwik-E-Mart though. The industrial buildings not so much, but you won't notice the "stucco-effect" from a normal viewing distance.

Hi guys, despite better weather and lots of other things to do I managed to make some new stuff for various projects.

I am finishing my factory site with a chemicals storage tank farm. I made the tanks available separately. I think I'll make the whole tank farm available soon.



A single track pipe bridge, available with and without the pipes (pictured here in a temporary location at the plant site)


ATSF style signal cantilevers, with rivets and other fine details (no signals)

I had placed the following on my Facebook page, but I thought I'd show it here too, as I'm quite chuffed with the result.
It's a floor slab for the guard house. In my case it's the entrance of my factory site. The slab has curbs and a concrete tile pattern. The gates come with the guard house. The aircon unit is a separate model, I just thought the guys inside the building would want a cool atmosphere ;)

Sounds like board form-constructed walls would be a natural here with those lines.it's want you need for those piers, abutments, retaining walls etc from the 20's - 40's, before plywood became commonly used.
