#48337, "RE: 3D Printing"
In response to In response to 17


  

          

Really good to see, Nick

Out of interest... I notice the davits have several surface textures - was that deliberately put into the 3D model, or was it the product of shaping the parts with an abrasive?

And with the actual resulting plastic - how would you describe its characteristics - is it brittle and inflexible or strong and bendable? Is it a bit waxy and resistant to sanding, or is it chalky and crumbly?

I'm just trying to get an idea of what the material is like. These factors may need to be taken into account when modelling it (at 1/350) - for instance there might have to be compromises at times between scale accuracy and giving the part enough thickness/strength within itself.

Thanks
John H
