3D Printed Steam Donkey

I think I'm starting to perfect printing on the Photon.

This is another one from early Shapeways and I've now converted for DLP.  I remember going through several months of tests and re-design on this one.

After I printed and primed the Photon print, I brought out my prized original FUD model for comparison.  I realized I never did get the gears and spools to successfully print in FUD.

The rivet detail on the virtual model is 0.1mm diameter and 0.1mm tall.  The four 'rings' on the main boiler, and around the seams on the water tank are also the 0.1mm rivets, however they are too close together.  Also lost are the gaps between planks.  These details will be appropriately scaled for the next print, and based on how things look already, it'll be great!
