    I just spoke with the man, and regarding rhe cathedral,  38 people spent 14 months creating it. No castings or 3d printing, all carved by hand from large polyurethane block. Windows are printed photos of the real thing, behind glass.

    GLX SCALE MODELS - 3d printing
    Yes, I have to agree with Fred. Gilbert made some roller bearing end caps for my Arisocraft roller bearing trucks, I had lost one of the caps. The replacement cap Gilbert made is identical to the Aristo ones, and worked flawlessly.

    3d Software
    This is probably obvious, but here goes.
     
    There's a huge difference between 2D CAD / laser cutting, and 3D CAD / 3D printing. You can go a long way with the former, using designs based on pieces cut from flat stock. But for 3D parts, especially smal...  more
    3d Software
     
    Not wanting to derail Burl Rice's thread any further, I figured I'd open a thread on the various 3d modeling software that people use for 3d printing.  I was using Tinkercad, but find it limiting.  I downloaded DesignSpark Mechanical a co...  more
