Date: Friday, March 13, 2020 at 9:52 PM Subject: Final SHAY 3D file to print
I hope you all are healthy and safe!
This final CAD development file is to be 3D Printed next week.
This is the current status;
A. There are only two body parts and the PowerMAX!.
B. There are 23 additional surface parts and components not previously developed (all are included in your original order without additional charge;
1. a full interior of controls,
2. boiler with controls and trademark (LIMA), a hot water spout,a tray and coffee cup.
3. signage including; Locomotive ID number, patent plate, patent numbers (12) and builders plate,
4. driving bezel shaft gears,
5. fully detailed interior overhead,
6. forward windshield wipers,
7. aft pilot ladder, and tool cabinet with handles,
8. Cab grips, steps, and coupler pin lock lifting chains,
9. water tank cover, and 3 steam pistons with complete mechanisms.
We are concerned about the Body Tender Text. At scale the 6 point font's descenders and serifs may not print completely. We intend to "shave" the black paint off all the text, signage, and rivet heads to expose the bright brass below. All of the text is embossed, raised above the surface - we will report with photos. see
These progress images are the annotated pre-cast tests for the first crystal wax 3D prints. The critical remarks are the Caster's.
We will review them when recieved, and run another progress 3D print. We will report.
FRONT & RIGHT ANGLE SHAY 3D
There will be NO DCC provided for the SHAY. There is available space for mini-circuits in both the Tender and the Cab & Boiler, but installation of any electronics including lighting will be the responsibility of the client.
To gain insight and understanding of the SHAY, it origins, its utility, and its variety of designs please see;
together they will inform and describe the development and use of the SHAY. This information should assist you in identifying and selecting the individual features you wish to add to you own "UNIQUE" SHAY.
