  1. We need to be more careful in and around our homes. Take care and get well soon.
  2. Windex is a good thinner for acrylics. The original blue windex
  3. Resin once cured is strong enough. there is high tensile resin available but I think depending on scale a normal resin would handle it. Another option might be print the truss hollow and put rod through negating the need to solder brass rod?
  4. Thanks Pete. I'm using Fusio360 too. I have alot to learn still
  5. This looks as good as Oli Braun's. Best part is it don't cost as much to deliver as it does to buy or I'd have bought one
  6. 3D wont replace all styrene models (unless you are a 3D guru) but it will certainly enhance them
  7. Always put supports on corners and edges. And for added safety print a few more parts than needed
  8. Sometimes things need to be done more than once. Unfortunately this might be one of those cases. You've done all the hard work of figuring out angles and such. Now just redo with .05-1mm thickness. The legs could be printed in one piece Gimbals as solids The engine will need redrawing for printing. But it might print on shapeways since they use a different method to print? YOu could create an account on shapeways and upload. They test the component when uploaded and tell you if it will print. Worth a go. If the frame is the same x 4 then you only need one and print 4 x
  9. I had a look at the Elegoo Saturn (name right up our alley) It looks impressive. Resolution is not a lot better for 4K but is faster and has a much larger print area. Handy but means you buy more resin. I'll upgrade to this when my Photon dies
  10. Thanks Pete Now I may have to add more to the bottom. Although your can't see the inside 😉
  11. Thanks and No. Resin printers use DLP.
