Fun little project.

G & D, that would not be 'Gorre & Daphetid', would it ?


3D-printing, I have a Flashforge Adventurer 3,
and I use FreeCAD for all of my design work.

What 3D-printer do you have ?

Thanks Wayde,
I'm having a ton of fun.


G & D comes from my wife's and my first initials.
Nothing too cerebral I know, but it seemed a good idea years ago.

I've worked out many things in my imaginary world,
but never pinned down an actual in 'world' name.
 
It's always just been the G & D.
I should perhaps give it some thought.

'Gorre & Daphetid' is just too iconic to even think about. 


The 3D-printer I use is a bog standard Elegoo Mars,
a pretty old first model with no bells or whistles.

The old girl has never missed a beat, and still works very well.

I would like a newer one with a 4K screen and a bigger print area,
but can't justify it yet, as this one still works so well.


I design in Fusion 360, which is an outstanding program,
I highly recommend it.

Slicing is done with the Lychee Slicer, which I'm still learning,
after switching from Chitubox.

A bit of progress.

Roof on and shingled and a touch of paint.

A lot more to do, but starting to look like something.





Thanks for looking in.

Another day another project.

Worked on the coach interior.
Started adding oil paint for the wood grain.

Not perfect but good practice and I don't think you
could even see it in the car unless the roof was off.

Still, I know it's there.
Sometimes you just do stuff for fun.





My good friend Bill pointed out that I hadn't painted
the rail sides on the new points I'd bought.

So I broke out the paint, added some ballast
and knocked together some steps for the shed.

( Strangely I haven't added a door knob yet, oops ) 





All told not a bad result for the week.

While waiting for the paint to dry on the coach interior,
I got to making some 3D-printed parts for the Porter.

I wanted a smokebox door with raised lettering,
and a square older style headlight.

A few hours with Fusion 360 and some printing,
and here we are.

Hi Daniel

The new number plate and large lantern

really make your Porter stand out from the crowd.

Well done.
