It is difficult to compare these with the excellent Gemini GSE models you are putting alongside them?
This 3D printing appears to produce 'ridges'? Can these be removed easily? Also, is it possibly to make them look prototypical, based on a real vehicle? Some fire trucks and fuel bowsers would be my priority.

Hardly a fair compare, as the3d printed models are not yet fully assembled, painted and detailed....

That said, to your point/question, 3d printing can leave ridges. The smaller the model, the more evident they are. I print (using the same model 3d printer) for 1/200 scale. A little sanding and some paint, complemented with viewing from a distance, makes the result acceptable.

My own 3d design skills are lacking, but I have been lucky enough to find someone who is much more capable than me and is prepared to help me out. Look for 1/200 results in a few weeks...

Wow!
This is interesting.
Thanks for sharing these pics on DAC. I am very interested in what you have done here.
The shapes are undeniable the subjects your chasing.
I'd say the tugs are the better of the two subjects with the buses needing some more work, but in saying that-they still look pretty good. Obviously still in development.

What plans did you use to create these? Are they your own designs?
Is the 3D printer yours ?

Please continue to share these items - love seeing 3D work, even more interesting when its a work in progress.

Well done.

Wink Re: 3D printing GSE

No doubt the Goldhofer tugs are the cream here. I could see these VERY popular in the 1:200 collector world as well.

I have a 1:200 resin kit Goldhofer tug that I put together a couple of years back, and every time I post a photo of it, I get a myriad of offers for it.

Moral of the story? Tugs are popular, and the more finished and detailed they are, the more collectors want them. Why? I think it is because a couple of tugs go well with a 'shelf' collection without having to go the full-diorama route.

I think you want to try SLA printing like this member did.
Detail looks crisper than ABS printers.

Thank you very much ukjohna and Adrian ... my first experince print GSE in scale 1:400 with 3D printing Makerbotl 2 i am not very satisfied because problem 'ridges', and i try to sanding its not working, like this :



I am still looking solution for this problem, i think i can make my "prototype" as molding silicon and i duplicated with resin ... like this :



and this way very good results ... and you can make as many GSE and costum it.

But some one buy my prototype as in the first picture in scale 1/400, he told me with with paint job 'ridges' will be ok, because in scale 1/400 its very small.

Actually, 3D printing with heating system (as like 3D replicator 2) has advantages and disadvantage :

Advantages :
-Material thermoplastic aliphatic polyester its good and cheapest.
-Resolution can be 0.1 mm (i ready try it)
-Minimum thickness 0.2 mm

Disadvantage
-Not easy for fist time printing (need setting, etc)
-There 'ridges'
-For hanging part need support

Thank you Bangkok Lady La yes this its my designs look at photo and vidio ... now, i dont have 3d Printing, i go to store with printing service or put in online printing service like shapeways.

using 3D printing technologie (design and produce) become easy and every one can do it.

Very impressive, more and more I think that 3D printing is our best hope of getting some sensibly priced airport accessories in 1/200.

I like what I see so far. I would be more apt to purchasing them already printed in various airline liveries. Please keep us informed with the results.

Yes ... i love design GSE because many models ... beautiful old time models , lovely soviet models, construction site models, winter truck models. I think for scale 1/200 will be very impresive if using better materials and resolution, because detail can be looking ...

Have you tried printing the models in detail plastic? It will allow for more details.

No I never tried with material Detail Acrylic, because it will be more expensive and unreasonable (remember shapeways put tax and shipping cost). I prefer Strong & Flexible Plastic White Polished (in my picture cheapest maetrial White Strong & Flexible Plastic). With this material price its reasonable and you can constum what do you want match with yours airport home base, you can do paint job like weathering, scratching, etc.
For more detail better replaced with Decale, i can send you pattern decale (not decale).

I am thinking of scanning the buses sides and scaling it down to the correct size and then create a design and print them out as decals which I will stick to the buses
