      3D printing turnout parts

      Time for a little experiment.

      I have some tight radius G scale Aristocraft turnouts that my steamers cant go thru.

      So, instead of buying or handlaying new turnouts, I will try to rebuild them into #5's instead.

      I used Fusion 360 to CAD design a new frog and the surrounding ties.

      It will be 3D printed in ABS+ on my trusty old Wanhao Duplicator 4S.

      Then I can use the points and just alter the radius on the rails.
