Third test bed is near to close. I'm surprised how much small errors is in my older models. For rendering it was not problem but now I have to do only closed volumes. Next favorites are prepared

The N-167 is one of my favorites. 4 J-79s (like the B-58).PlanesPictures said:Of course, I like these heavy beauties (length 20.8 m and what about Northrop N-144 Lenght: 35,55 m - more as B-58B).
I would disagree with that surface finish comment. The high end industrial models (price tag starting around 100 000€ or 135 000 USD) produce parts comparable to injection molding (I know that there are not all injection molding products are same quality). We are not talking about printers costing few thousands. But we shall see when the printing startsOrionblamblam said:Are these 3D prints going to be one-offs? Or are you going to turn them into kits that people can buy?
If the latter, you're better off making one print, doing a lot of cleanup to the parts, then having the parts cast in resin. For more than a dozen or so kits, that's cheaper... and the quality is also a lot better. As great as 3D printing is to make master parts, it's still not yet to where you can sell *quality* kits straight from the printer. Even the best printers have regrettable surface finishes.
