        What kind of stuff do you use for making the mold, doesn't look like regular silicone.

          2 part RTV silicone; 50/50 equal parts. I got mine from "Voschemie", V-SURE SILICONE, different colors = different curing times, think yellow is medium, blue is fast.

          • Sail casting, right out of the tool.
            All the tiny details are present.....the weldingseams are spot on.
            Very pleased with the result.

                  • Well seems that shapeways could not print the props due to their cleaning process (apparently they blast the model with air and glass beads to achieve a powder-free model).
                    Those things always trigger me, and I become pretty determined to make it happen anyway.

                    First stem I wanted to print them as a whole, not in parts, I made a bunch of test prints to determine the minimum supports needed and the determine the most favorable orientation of the propeller.

                    After I found the sweet spot I printed the propeller in scale 1/96 and 1/72.
                    Next I will be making the tooling for them.

                    • Bart,
                      What slicer are you using?
                      Peace,
                      Tom
                      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                      • How unlike you to go and get something done that others tell you can't be done!

                        We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go
                        Always a little further; it may be
                        Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
                        Across that angry or that glimmering sea

                          nothing fancy Tom, the one of anycubic. Its all in the prep meaning, supporting and positioning of the piece.

                            • Even when printed with a layer height of 0,05 mm, you always will experience artifacts in your prints, applied filler and wet sanded the propellers, the small artifacts are clearly visually and filled with the applied paint.
