3D Printer Project
My 3D Printer is moving, but still not ready to create any models. However, I have been working on my first project which is an 1840's open slat side wagon. This is the carriage or frame of the model. It will have 12 mm spoked wheels and the NEM 362 pocket will be at NMRA standards. This frame can be used for the small operator as well. Scale feet is about 14 long and a little over 8 feet wide. I have additional photos of the waggon or freight car.

    Mark Charles I've read about copper-infused PLA. It might add some weight.
