Stone Bridge

on Wed Sep 05, 2018 5:41 am

I finally got around to printing and painting the stone bridge I designed a couple of weeks ago. The STL is at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3061573, this is the version with the cobbled road-bed.

I printed it at 0.2mm in eSun PLA+. I got a bit of underextrusion here and there; I suspect the filament might have been getting a bit moist and/or dirty.


The bridge is intended for 15mm wargaming, and in that scale it's just large enough to take a truck or a light tank. Certainly nothing larger than a Panzer II.

Nice design of the bridge. It will work.

That 3d printing has some drawbacks is no secret. I cant see the fine lines of a 3d printer, if i am 1m away from this small object.

Not a fan of that attitude tbh. I see a lot of sub par 3D printed stuff sold that way....it does not fly with me. While paintying I see it close up to me all the time and the few bits I got that had these obvious lines just went into the bin. I stick to the more expensive resin printed stuff when possible.

Great bridge none the less, very useful, but the lines kill it for me.
