So, do you need those three D glasses, to view it once you've printed it?
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Fizzy, as GeoffA said the grey one is the 3d cad model. That model only took me 15 mins to knock up.

Anyway 14 hrs down, 5 to go.

Will be ready for when Xcavator gets up outta bed later  today

This is a type of rubber plastic.
The filament is like spaghetti. Bends very easy, so it's hard to push it through the extruder without bending after the drive rollers.

Harder the plastic faster you can go.

Couldnt just go to Big W or the sports store and buy a frisbee Huh, Had to get one custom made .  ;D or are you doing a Fluro flange Rhino rear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh2iyPmucFk   ;D ;D

On a side note, Looks like a serious bit of kit you have there SJ,  Do you take orders ? if so if its not too rude ..Can I get an  idea of  basic costing per hour ..

We do take orders. But this isn't my main job, just a side project to my main line of work. Pricing depends on many factors. One offs attract a higher price. We generally prefer CAD drawings, but for small jobs can do the drawing.
All my printers are mainly focused on printing rubber material.
I manufacture the flexible elbows and tees found on Ultimate campers.

PM for more info.

STL and some other formats. It then gets sliced and outputs a Gcode that the printer interprets into movements

Thanks!

So that's the "blueprint", for want of a better word.

Dredging for gold is highly illegal in Australia.
