Hi all,

I needed some ladders and antennas for my 62b´s.
Of course there are spareparts avaialbe but they are quite expensive and doing them on your own is more fun.
The problem is that my colleague who printed the parts must suffer under red and green blindness. :)

They look fine and I am sure you could sell some to other collectors.

The parts need some corrections and I hope that my colleague will be able to print in red as well
If anybody needs some parts he can contact me.

Stephen, once again, your 3-D skills are impressive!
Please let me know when your friend finds the raw materials to print in red!
Thank you
Kurt
Happy hunting!

This is nothing special.
Everbody in a 3D-course can learn this within a day.

I will let you know when I can get the parts in the red.

This is stunning, Stephan.
I've had several prints in my hands, but I could see the individual layers.
Can one recognize the individual layers in your prints?
How big is the layer thickness?

Anyone out there 3D printing propellers for the Dinky 290 Hovercraft ?
Would they be too brittle though ?

Thanks - The parts are made in SLA - printing.
My friends printer is able to print 10µm layers.

If I could have a scetch with all measurements and some good pictuters or the real part in hands it should be no big problem.
