New Briggs Models products

A few modelers have mentioned they would like this...Briggs Models has some new products becoming available the next couple weeks, CRS20 hoods and upgraded RS18 hood/nose/cab/detail kits also. New freight cars soon. www.briggsmodels.ca I am always looking for product suggestions, and with the addition of 3d printers it cuts down on development time and effort. If anyone is interested, I am also actively seeking people that are interested in producing 3d drawings for products. I have two printers which I like to keep working! Thanks all!

How does the resolution of your 3D printers compare to Shapeways' FUD and FXD quality?

A GOOD Comet II/Horizon car kit?

Russell plow or Jordan Spreader?

Rib sided plastics hopper?

SD60I cabs for the SD60M (used by Conrail, NS and CSX)?

NW-5?

For something really different: LeTearneau Letro-Porter?

A GN 30' plywood side caboose would be closer to home for you.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

If you are willing to venture into HO scale, I think that a replacement nose to convert a Walthers FM H10-44 to H12-44 might have some modest success. All that is needed is the part forward of the shutters on the side The H10-44 nose is angled and the H12-44 is flat. The H10-44 has a "notch" on the top of the nose, and the H12-44 has a lower headlight and smaller front door. It would be best to not have those details printed to simplify sanding. Just a thought for a pretty straightforward piece (once the curves are figured out).

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

If you are looking for a loco shell, I would love to model both BC Rail Alco S-13. I believe the Kato NW2 or Atlas VO1000 chassis may be correct. Which ever chassisworks (I will research that) I would be willing to find out which chassis works and provide one to you for examination purposes.

The machines I use don't leave support material on the parts...they are clean and ready to paint. |It is a true SLA process, not DLP or multi-jet modelling such as Shapeways uses. On some surfaces there is minor stepping from the layering process, but no wax or film. I try to keep the stepping effect down by judicious settings.

I am not adverse to HO, but the printers have a smallish build volume, and HO takes a LOT longer to print items, even increasing the layer thickness slightly. The N scale PGE plywood cabooses I have, I intend to release in HO scale as well, as printed kits. It will take me a week or so to re-work the drawings to print effectively in that scale. I have done lots of detail parts I will be posting on my website this week sometime...the detail is amazing.

So if I understand this correctly, SPA printer will produce items similar to Shapeways' High-Def Acrylate?  What  is the resolution (or what specific printer do you have, so I can look up its specs)?

Yes they will, without the annoying wax. However there are other geometry restrictions with the process that requires more operator input.

Easilly done with the Arnold SW1200:


Looking forward to seeing new items. My M420s are currently about 80% complete and waiting in the paint shop.

I'd like to see a replacement roof section for the Atlas GP15 to convert it into a GP15T.
The fabric of reality has begun to fray.

Oh that's a good one. Add the small blower duct version as well.

And a CF7 :)
