3D Printing and Laser Cutting: A Railway Modelling Companion


The technology for 3D printing has been around for many years but now has a rapidly expanding market among hobbyists and home users. The authors take readers through the principles of 3D printing; the benefits to the railway modeller; the do's and don'ts of building structures in the materials available; an overview of the various CAD packages on offer and a simple entry-level tutorial; how to check your 3D printable file to ensure it contains no manifold errors and how to fix these prior to printing; troubleshooting; finishing your 3D printed component. The book contains how-to summaries for each section and is well illustrated with step by step techniques where appropriate, the various stages of 3D printing, the types of CAD packages and printers available to the modeller, and examples of models and components produced by 3D printing.
