    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

    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.


    Grtz,
    Bart

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

    Manfred.
    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.

    I am reluctant to tell people what I have been doing in the weekend.
    Seems that, filling 0.5 scribing lines with paint by use of a needle is not a usual thing to do.
    You can see the fear kick in, answering their next question “why” by telling them that else the 0.2mm louvers of the vent grating will fill up by paint to, does not really help to keep the conversation going.

    Addressing scribing groves.
    Close up of problem (IMO)

    Preparing for tooling, modeling clay uses to seal the openings in the sail and used as a bed for the sail to sit on.

    Yeah good to be back also, building the shop took a while, requiring all the materials during C19 lockup was a pain, ordered a lot of stuf from you guys over the border.
